Fish is worthy of a second review. I brought friends from Concord here and this was their first visit. I am hooked on the mussels but my friends had sal on and fish and chips...equally as good. The best spot in Marlborough in my opinion! Reasonably priced, good service ..

We chose oe ner the fireplace in the bar which was nice. I think people either don't know about the restaurant or it... More

I recently ate here with a small group. We almost left before ordering because the first person in the group to arrive complained about how rudely she had been treated by the hostess. They wouldn't seat us until the entire party arrived (all but two tables were available. It was a very very slow night). (We stayed because it was... More

Went with a friend and both fish dishes were very good. Liked the swordfish preparation in particular. Our waiter was attentive and made sure we had everything that we needed. Enjoyed the live music and went and sat at the bar after dinner. Would go back for a good fish dinner at a reasonable price.

5:30p Saturday date night. Tried the octopus as an app. It was delicious! Had the fluke special. Also delicious. Hubby had seared tuna. Dinner portions were a bit small. Recommend ordering apps first

When it's good, it's great. Unfortunately, the experience is unpredictable. We used to go a couple of times a week when it was Coral Seafood, and the experience was always unpredictable. When the restaurant changed it's name to Fish, the experience was also unpredictable, but the menu became "blah". The lunch menu is more interesting than the dinner menu. It's... More

We decided on a Friday to try a new seafood restaurant and found this one an easy half hour drive away. Made a reservation for 6:45, arrived on time and were seated right away. Decor is contemporary and attractive with simple lighting at each table so you can read the menu and see your food! Waiter came right away with... More

I always feel that the formulaic approach to dining in the US reduces the overall experience of enjoying good food. The fish here was good - had a nice well executed piece of halibut and my guest had a delicious lobster ravioli. My side order of asparagus was forgotten about so I had to remind them. The continuous appearance different... More

Baked stuffed shrimp were very small, service ok, but value wasn't there. Will probably try again, but not for shrimp.
