This is a high quality sea food restaurant in central New Jersey. The next best thing is about an hour drive to the shore. It is no doubt the best place in Princeton to get seafood. It is a BYOB establishment. The oysters are @2 bucks each,with a wide selection to choose from, but where else are you going to... More

Excellent, simply prepared very Fresh seafood in a wide variety. This is a great local place that grew out of a fish market - this doesn't mean no sophistication but it does mean outstanding quality of the ingredients prepared to highlight this, not over-seasoned or sauced. It is BYOB and gets very crowded at peak times - Reservations NOT accepted,... More

We are regulars. Jack Morrison's Nassau Street Seafood store is next door to a simple, always good, seafood treat. We like to sit at the small bar in front of the kitchen, watching the chefs and the men shucking oysters and clams. We bring our own wine. At the booths and tables, the service is always great. You are advised... More

this is a wonderful fish restaurant. The fish comes directly from the same owners fish store next door. it is cooked beautifully with simple delicious side dishes. It can be a bit noisy but well worth it. Reservations suggested.

If you like fish this is a restaurant to visit. The variety of fish and seafood offered is extensive. The portions are generous. However, the preparation lacks imagination: there's minimal variety in the mode each fish is prepared. So, little advantage is taken of the differences in taste and texture that distinguish the various kinds of fish. For the price... More

I ate here three times. The fish was always fresh and well prepared. The service was great. It is BYOB, if you bring a bottle of wine, they will open it for you.

It's all about the fish. Full stop. And it's great. We came on a Sunday night. The place was pretty crowded, so I'm glad we had a reservation. We each had an appetizer salad; they were all good, but the standouts were the fried goat cheese, and - of course - the kale and salmon salad. For the mains, our... More
