Seafood with Class

This restaurant was very different from I was used to in regards to the menu size but it definitely had some great tasting food. Sangria was not a specialty of this restaurant, so I had to deduct points for that. The portions were very good. The creativity of the food display was mediocre. You... read more

Hubby and I needed a light quick bite to eat and knew from only one other previous visit that we would be very satisfied at Fish. Once again, this time seated at the bar we enjoyed delicious fried whole belly clams & baked oysters. The bread is also quite satisfying. This was a 5 pm Friday quick stop and we... More

What a wonderful find! Two friends and I settled on this restaurant when looking for a luncheon venue to satisfy our yearning for seafood. It turned out to be a perfect choice. Everything was just right - the ambiance (decor, lighting, level of background music, ability to carry on a quiet conversation), service (attentive, gracious), food.(simply outstanding). I may actually... More

As the title says it is a good seafood restaurant. The menu has a good assortment of seafood but not much for the land lover. The seafood is prepared to order and is very good. We were there on a Saturday night and there was live music in the bar area. Smart casual attire and a relaxed dinner atmosphere.

OK, so who would have thought that a fish restaurant in Marlborough, MA (35 miles from Boston Harbor) would have such wonderful seafood cooked to perfection? I have been to dozens of seafood restaurants, and this is one of the best. When I saw the menu prices on the Web, I was very surprised at the lofty prices. But don't... More

We've been here a few times and we were never disappointed. It's a perfect place for couples, family or just if you want to enjoy the wine bar alone. The food is always fresh and presented in a very aesthetic way , even the fish sticks the kids usually get. The staff is always friendly and the ambiance is great.

What a great place. We went for dinner while visiting the area. Had the stuffed lobster which was good, it was the first lobster I have ever had. The dining room is warm and inviting.

Went to dinner here last week and had a fantastic meal. Amongst our group we had the swordfish, lobster, scallops and paella. All of them were loved, however, be careful because we were expecting a nice paella with a big serving of seafood, but instead it was made out of some sort of pasta instead of rice and didn't have...

I went with a friend to Fish, choosing to sit on a high bar table. We had good service. My friend had a scallop dish that was well plated and was tasty. I had a nicely-plated crab cake appetizer as a meal along with a side dish of broccolini. I often get crab cakes even though only the mid-atlantic states... More
