The Best Fried Fish in Wheeling, WV

This is the one of the best fish markets in the country. You can purchase fried fish and also fish, etc. to take home and cook yourself. When people who grew up in Wheeling and moved away, this is one of the first places they go to when they are in town. GREAT FISH!!

This place is great. The people are very Friendly. They had a booth at the Wing Festival in Wheeling and had deep fried Frog Legs. They were great!! Their Fish is also a legend in the tri-state area, so if your in or passing through the Friendly city of Wheeling please stop by, you wont be disappointed.

Coleman's has been a place we visit almost every Friday. I've been all over the US and have never tasted a fish sandwich that can beat Coleman's. Has been a valley favorite for many years and has almost become a destination point for many travelers. It is located in "The Old Market House" that has been around since the turn... More

Got in there about 10:30 a.m., an excellent time to go, before the rush begins. I was picking up basic fish sandwiches for a co-worker and myself, and as always they were superb. There were 5 other customers there. If I would have any complaint, it's that the wait was 7 or 8 minutes. In one way it's no problem,... More

I have traveled all over the world & nothing beats a colemans fish sandwich. Best day to go is Wednesday when fish is freshly delivered. My family loves to order it bread separate & that way everyone makes their own sandwich how they like it. I say hands down best fish sandwich anywhere!

Coleman's Fish Market is a laid back almost rustic venue with easy to follow directions. A line snakes to an order taker, you get to watch the large kitchen hustle as you follow the line to where you pay and pick up your food. For the three of us, they got our orders totally correct (an increasingly hard thing to... More

My hubby and I ate lunch at Coleman's recently. The line was long but moved quickly. The standard fish sandwich was as wonderful as I remember from 30 plus years ago. The very mild fish was fried to perfection and was piled between two slices of plain white bread. We had an order of jo jo potatoes and an order... More

I have always loved colemans sandwich. If u live in valley u may get a fish sandwich but not a colemans sandwich. This place lacks a friendliness but always busy its walk thru lines for ordering calling out numbers. But if u have something special this is the place to go buy it raw and cook it ur self or...

A wheeling institution. I like the chowder and the bisque, but the fish sandwich is usually why I go. Simple, and excellent. It pays to order ahead of time - especially for larger orders - that way you pick up your food at the "Special Order" station, rather than having to stand in the regular line. From what I have...
