Very Fresh Food

We were told about this place by a co-worker. He said itv was his and his wife's favorite restaurant. He was right this is a rare find this far south in the burbs. The food is very fresh and prepared excellent. Service is good, I would highly recommend a reservation anytime.

Though it's a bit pricey, this place is well worth it. The service is great. The food is fantastic. And the desserts are great, too. We love it.

Have eaten at Tin Fish in the past with very good experiences, then on the 16th of June 2015 this all changed. Should have know when the sever was promoting the salmon as excellent but still cooked pink. Not fully cooked, but was willing to cook further. The crap cakes were ordered by all three of the party. They were... More

It's a good place for fish however it's way over rated and expensive, for not the best fish in town.

Had dinner at the Tin Fish, located @ 182nd South Harlem in Tinley Park, again. This place is our favorite seafood restaurant. The food is always fresh and seasonal, from oysters to soft-shell crab to sea bass. I had the black grouper, and I substituted the delicious mashed potatoes for sautéed spinach. The owner was a chef for a four-star... More

We have been going to Tin Fish for over 10 years, it is truly our go to place. We enjoy sitting in the bar and mingling with other locals as well as first timers. It's a great place for a night out with friends or a special occasion. It's the best place to go, close to home where you can... More

Tin Fish provides a nice ambiance, excellent service, and elegantly prepared seafood. My husband enjoyed the halibut, while I had the salmon, and they were lovely but undercooked for our tastes. I think fish is best when it is cooked just to the point of moist flakiness, but not raw. If you are like us, we suggest you request your... More

We met for late lunch for daughters birthday. She had the blackened scallops and shrimp special and said it was the best meal she had ever eaten. Another in our party really enjoyed the sword fish dish. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the sea venue. I'll upload a couple pics.

For the fish lovers, from the scallops to the swordfish or tuna, the whole table of international business travelers was delighted by the quality of the dish and the service. Certainly worth the extra miles when you are south of Chicago!

We were on the road, I-80 west, just west of Chicago, and very hungry, about 2:30 pm. We found The Tin Fish in Tinley Park as a place to try. Couldn't have been more delighted. Rarely does a traveler find such a lovely restaurant open until 3:30 pm for lunch. We both had fish entrees in addition to a small... More
