....there was a terrible stink while waiting for our food. It followed us until we were in the dining room. You order in the fish market and wait until they call your number then go into the dining room to eat. The lobster rolls are excellent along with the clam chowder. We also thought the fries were tasty as they... More

City Fish is an institution and the quality of their fresh and cooked offerings are consistently stellar. Their dine in option is one of my lunchtime favorites. It's a great alternative to the fast food options on the Silas Dean Highway. I recommend the hot lobster roll, fish and chips along with my new favorite - fish taco wrap. It's... More

If you didn't know this place supplies the restaurant industry in CT region with fresh seafood - so if top places rely on City Fish so should you. They have excellent selection and quality to take home and prepare or dine in.

City Fish has been a fixture in the Hartford area for as long as anyone can remember. They supply most of the upscale restaurants in Hartford and Tolland county with their seafood every day. This will give you an idea of how fresh their product is. When you enter, the fresh fish market is on your left and on your... More

It had been several years since my last visit to this casual restaurant, but since I had recently moved back to the area I decided to stop for lunch with a friend as I had remarked how great their hot lobster roll was and their New England clam chowder. The chowder was creamy with lots of clam pieces and tasty.... More

We have been buying our fresh seafood here for a number of years. They have a marvelous selection and their display cases are immaculate and filled with about the freshest seafood around. We love steamer clams, and I would not even consider buying them anywhere but here. However, we had a hankering for fried whole-belly clams, so we decided to... More

Had lunch at City Fish. It was a fifteen minute wait to get my $10 shrimp and french fry basket. The food was greasy but tasty. They shorted me a shrimp (9 when it advertized 10). My wife got the fish sandwich and did not like it. I will probably not go back.
