Atlantic Fish has been a favorite of both locals and tourists alike, offering classics like award-winning New England Clam Chowder and Maine Lobster to more adventurous items such as our signature Swordfish Chop. The understated and timeless decor of the restaurant immediately draws the attention of those who enter. The dining room reminds one of a classic cruising vessel, complete with detailed woodwork and murals reflecting the spirit of the sea. Tailored to intimate dining with cozy booths throughout.

Atlantic Fish Company is great but get a reservation

This is my go to restaurant for special occasions or with out of town friends or business associates. Good bar. Great fresh seafood. Excellent staff who provide efficient service. Great vibe. I like to order the sea food tower of cold seafood items to share as an appetizer.

We had a private event here with friends. Our evening was delightful. Service and food were great. They did an excellent job of delivering food to all guests in a timely manner and hot. Nice array of menu selections and a very nice wine list.

The shellfish tower was very good. Fresh! But also very costly. $130! Calm chowder was ok. The service was very bad. The waitress has no service sense at all, even not too busy. Sometimes she just rather than chart with another employee more than ask what her customers want. She didn't take our soup bowls after we finished soup. Then... More

Walked in not knowing what to expect. Had reservations however we were early. Walked in, greeted with a friendly smile although early (1hr) we were escorted to our table and Glenn was our server. He not only was pleasant but knowledgeable with red wines. Upon sitting down we had pheasant bread (delicious). My husband ordered the clam chowder and it... More

Busy, noisy but good seafood restaurant. Excellent clam chowder and key lime pie at either end of the meal, but slightly disappointing lobster ravioli as the main course. The sweet lobster was totally overpowered by a cloying basil cream sauce and strong earthy shiitake mushrooms. On reflection I don't think mushrooms and lobster should share the same plate. Service was... More

Very fresh, very well prepared dishes, and outstanding professional service. We had terrific oysters, chowder, and 2 types of local fish. You can't ask for more from a restaurant.

We popped in for lunch (it was busy on a weekday!) before heading to the airport. Total cost for 2 people was $80 (including tip). I had an "Italian Mimosa" cocktail and my husband had a coke. We shared a cup of clam chowder (very good), and the crab & corn spring rolls (a little oily) as appetizers, then my... More
