Fresh and fast!

City Fish is a Fish Market that also has a take out window and indoor seating. This is a no frills place but the seafood is AMAZING. You order at the indoor window, wait for your number and get your order in a take out box. You can choose to take your food into their dining room which is very... read more

The service at the counter is friendly and quick, the dining room is clean and staffed by friendly personnel. Beer and wine is available at a reasonable price.. Plus their fish market offers a wide selection... More

Lobster rolls at City Fish are better than most you'll find in Maine. OK maybe some in Maine are a tiny bit better, but is it worth traveling that far in hopes of finding one. I think not.

This review is about the establishment’s Takeout Meals and its Retail Section. We come here as often as we can. Our routine is first to order the day’s special (cooked), move onto its dining area to enjoy our acquisitions; after which, move to the retail area of the Market to finish our shopping. To order cooked meals is pretty mechanical.... More

When I am in the mood for fish & chips the only place in the area that I visit is City Fish Market. The food is cooked to order so it crispy and not greasy. They have weekly specials with prices that cannot be beat.

Wanted fried seafood for lunch on a recent Saturday so we stopped at City Fish. Haven't been there in a year or so. We were disappointed that they only sell the fried foods as a dinner, with fries. We wanted just a pint of clams and pint of oysters, no fries. So we settled for a whole clam dinner. Well,... More

We have never been to the prepped food part of this business (although it always smells good), but we make the 45 minute drive down to the retail part about once a month. They always have fresh fish, and other seafood. Great selection too!!! And while it's always a mad house in there, they always are well staffed and the... More

Look not only do they have fresh seafood at a fare price you can also get something to eat there and have a beer. How great is that ? Lobsta rolls, clam chowder, whole belly clams, fish.. If you've not been you've got to check it out..

My local fish market has the best clam chowder! City Fish is a big operation; wholesale & retail fish monger, sit down restaurant and to go market. I've bought everything from salmon and sea scallops to 6 pound lobsters (yes, they are tender). Retail prices are not cheap. So I don't shop there often. Except for the clam chowder. Their... More
