If you like everything fried, then this is the place for you. The place is clean, but it looks like something out of Bikini Bottom. I was expecting Mr. Krabs to come out his office at any moment.

Excellent choice to dine. A small location for dining with the family. The food was incredibly fresh and simply fantastic. I would recommend trying for an excellent meal and friendly staff.

This restaurant is not fancy at all, the menu is at the table, you are served on tin foil, but the fish is very good, is very fresh, I highly recommend it.

This place did not disappoint! We each ordered a side salad and two Seafood Platters, the Cod and the Jumbo Shrimp and scallops broiled with steamed broccoli. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted very fresh. We ordered take-out and it was ready in just a few minutes. We will be back next year!

The food was very fresh, even when visiting at 9:30 at night! The Alaskan crab legs were pretty expensive compared to other restaurants in the area, however they were very good. You can eat in or take out which was a nice option.

We were a party of 6- we started with fried calamari. THE worst, dried up pieces of rubber ever. We sent it back. Four of us ordered broiled seafood combinations...at 28.95 each. Was the food fresh ? Yes. But incredibly over-priced. I was fortunate to have ordered the red potatoes as the side...my sister ordered corn on the cob and... More

Place is small and looks like a deli, but the food was great and service was terrific. Best lobster bisque around.

The fish factory is one of the best take out places we have found in the Crest. Sometimes you just want to come off the beach, not go out but you don't want to cook fish either. They also have a dinning room attached to the market but we have never eaten there. Many places in the area don't take... More

We were thrilled to find the Fish Factory, after spending lots more on less impressive fish and seafood. Extremely casual, unassuming atmosphere, but who cares. The prices are fair and the food is great. Freshest flounder I ever had, crab cakes flavorful with no filler. We came back to take some home.
