Good selection of fresh fish and good value

This was our first time at Hayes and the food was very good. The place is always busy but not a long wait. We were advised by people in line to order the lobster bisque which was excellent and then we had the fried haddock with scallops, fries and coleslaw - all was most enjoyable. The owner... read more

This place is packed all the time. The food is fantastic and always fresh. We work directly across the street and visit fairly often. I have never been disappointed with the food, but the ambiance in relation to the price leaves a lot to be desired as far as I am concerned. By the number of people going in and... More

On another snowy, Buffalo evening we decided to get out of the house for a quick bite and chose Hayes Fish Company, a place I had been to numerous times to buy fresh fish and seafood. The restaurant is pleasant, but not "glamorous", the wait staff is both friendly and helpful; but it's the food and the prices that are... More

This was a great find!! The seafood was fresh and the quality was off the charts good.. We were greeted by the owner and he took the time to explain how he manages the freshness and quality.. The choices were plentiful.. A must for any seafood lover!!! Very relaxing!

Sometimes you have to wait in line, but not always. The seafood is always fresh and delicious. This place has a good reputation, you could tell because the days they are open the tables are always filled.

Dined @ Hayes last Friday evening. Got there a little after 5 pm & the line had already formed. As the time wore on, the line grew out the door & down the sidewalk in front. Crowds! Families! And it won't be cheap. Am sure some of those families paid over $200 to order their own food & then pick... More

I recently visited Hayes for the first time, though I'm somewhat of a local. I ordered the broiled salmon dinner. It was done to perfection and the fish was incredibly fresh tasting. Best salmon I've had in a long time, possibly ever. Sides were delicious too. I cannot wait to go back and try other items as everything on the... More

Been here a few times and it's always been good. The fish is amazing and their soups are very good as well.
