We had steamers, wings, and an assortment of seafood platters... Everything was very good... Not many tables, so you may have to wait... Take out also.

If you want fish... If you like fish... If you've been waiting for a fish dinner... You've found it - here at the Fish Factory except.... Leave your dress clothes home and just come off the beach or as casual as you want. This was definitely one of the freshest seafood meals we have had but you need to overlook... More

We heard good things about this place from some friends and we were not disappointed! Instead of dragging out 4 kids, we went to the Fish Factory, checked out our options, and placed our order with the very helpful and patient workers. Because everything is cooked to order, within 15 minutes we had our food steamed/fried and ready to go.... More

My family and I tried this restaurant for the first time and we had different experiences. Two of us had great meals and two of us were very disappointed. I personally had the surf and turf and while the lobster was really good, the steak was way overcooked. However, my husband and one son had outstanding meals. My advice would... More

Had a great dinner here with family. Delicious crab cake sandwich, steamers and steamed shrimp. Good prices. Very accommodating to our family which included 2 toddlers. Just wish i could have brought some home with us the next day!

The fish factory was a very small homey place to eat, it's not a big fancy restaurant. The food was very good and our waitress was always around to assist our every need. My boyfriend lovedddd the crab cakes and the shrimp was great as well. However, if you are on vacation and want to get dressed up to go... More

I am not a fish eater, but I go here every year and get their clam chowders. They package it up nicely with crackers and spoons. Best tasting soup I have had.
