I went in to buy my fish and spoke to the owner's son about a coupon that I had on my phone. He said that they don't honor coupons that come from phones because it doesn't represent ENOUGH OF AN EFFORT on the part of the customer. He said that "people should make the effort to cut out the paper... More

I would like to thank you for shopping at City Fish and for taking the time to let us know about your recent experience. I'm sorry to hear that it was an unpleasant one. Regarding the coupon: It is simply the store policy to only accept a "printed" coupon for the discount. We do make the coupon available on our... More

I was expecting really good fish and chips here - there was a line to get food for lunch. When I got my food, the fried fish was just ok and the breading was a little soggy. I think I'll give them another try, but a was disappointed.

Hi Kristi, I'm sorry to hear that your expectations were not met when trying our Fish & Chips for the first time. It is our best seller! We use a dry seasoned flour, as opposed to a batter, when frying the fish. It generally produces a slight crispiness with a flakey center. And, it is also the very best when... More

City Fish has the freshest fish of any fish market in the area. The cuts of fish, shell fish etc are second to none. If you need to buy fish this is the place. There is a restaurant portion but the real draw is to purchase your fish and cook at home

Here you order your food in the market and then either take it to go,or,move to their pleasant dining room to sit down and enjoy it still piping hot. We split a fish and chips dinner since the portions are ample. The dining room is clean and attended by a friendly woman who can also serve you beer. It's a... More

At City Fish in Wethersfield, you can buy your lunch and enjoy it there in their dining area. If you are in the mood for wine or beer they are happy to serve you in their dining area. Before you leave be sure to check out their great fish market for something to cook later. Enjoy.

Just got back from City Fish Market. It's a great fish market where you can get fantastic very fresh fried fish, clams, oysters, scallops, etc. I had a hot lobster roll, clam chowder, and fried whole belly clams. Clearly my eyes are much bigger than my stomach, though it did stretch enough to get the job done. You order what... More
