And the food I ordered was great! That's the key to finding good seafood as it can be tricky to prepare. I would go back the next time I'm in the area.

This is a chain... okay, that doesn't mean they don't do a really good job at what they do. For a resident of the plains, any chance to get to a good seafood restaurant is a treat. The selection is huge! Almost too much to single out only one or two things... at the table of six everyone had something... More

Fish was dry, scallops slimy, shrimp size of popcorn shrimp. Supposed to be grilled, not a hint of char. Shrimp looked sad. On a skewer with lackluster veggies. And later stomach burned. Had to run and get tums. Expensive and overpriced

I like fish, but I think this is overrated, expensive and a noisy place to have dinner. They tried to take the plates away before we were finished to get a new table et up, for the price quality, I will not return.

If you want to treat yourself to great seafood, and get a lot of personal attention, try the oyster bar in the front of The Fish Market. The guy who works there is one of the best seafood chefs I have experienced. You can either go off of their varied menu, or you can ask him to creat something special... More

Come here if you want to get some good fish. The place is nice and the offer of fish is really large and differentiate. You can get great appetizer and a good Cioppino.

I have eaten at The Fish Market in the past and remembered enjoying it, but it's been a while. Had a chance to have dinner here and was extremely disappointed in the food. I had simple grilled swordfish, which I normally love, but this was a strange piece of fish that was tough and chewy. I've never had this type... More

Fish Market is one of our favorites. Fish is always fresh, service is friendly, and the price is right. Sometimes we have to wait but have always been delighted with our meal.

Nice ambience, great for after work or business meals. HOwever, quality of food seems to yo-yo now & then. Had a few horrible meals (fish is not fresh) and had some great ones.

My wife and I recently ate here and again, the fish was so fresh. Not the cheapest restaurant but great quality for the money.
