Solid food, service so so

The bacon clam chowder was Delicious - although there were some shell pieces that I nearly broke a tooth on. My scallops took forever to arrive - they stuff apologize - but they were tasty.

This restaurant delivers everything it promises. The service, the quality of food, the atmosphere was beyond compare for New England. You feel like you just stepped into a New York popular bistro! Wonderful experience

We went to The Fish in Marlborough, MA yesterday and dined. Of course we are always seeking perfection in restaurants and sadly, Fish, even with it`s excellent service just didn't have the right combo of well prepared food at reasonable prices... I found the portions small for the prices charged. The food was prepared well and presented well, but to... More

We came across this restaurant while driving. Glad we did it was great! We did not have a reservation and it was very busy. We were seated within 10 minutes. Great service and great food!

Sat down at a table, not the bar. Bartender took our orders for drinks at our table. Drinks came 15 mins later. She came back and took our order for oysters, which is why we came. Just having oysters only, which they say they take pride in. Hour goes by. No one comes by to check on us. Talked to... More

The Fish Restaurant is not easy to find But take the extra time and you will be rewarded. Once you enter Fish, you know you it is special......the way the bar is laid out...... And the raised booths on the side. We found the waitstaff very warm and knowledgeable. My special tuna choice was excellent.... Cooked to order....,uniquely presented. The... More

We went to Fish last Saturday night as a family and the entire experience exceeded our expectations. First, upon arriving, there was a good crowd, some open air seating and the atmosphere was upbeat and energetic without being overwhelming. Later a jazz band started playing and it was enjoyable background music, just the right volume. We had oysters and calamari... More

I really enjoy Fish! I have had dinner in both the restaurant and bar area and enjoy the food and atmosphere. The seafood is always very fresh and tasty. Highly recommend.

We wanted to try it because it used to be Coral Seafood a favorite of ours. I t had your basic fried seafood, oysters and what not. Prices were certainly eye opening. I initially thought I was tearing up cause somebody maced me. But it was not. It was the $30 Fishermans platter. The $45 surf and turf. Yikes for... More

If you find yourself in or near Marlborough, Fish is a nice place to try. This is a high 3-star review. The menu is, as you would guess, seafood focused. There are non seafood options, however, including two vegetarian entrees. Many items were appealing. The cocktail menu was tempting, but we passed. We split the calamari appetizer with cherry peppers.... More
