Views of the bay, city, and Midway aircraft carrier next to it. I love the Dungeness Crab Louie with sour dough bread and a Chardonnay

Always good seafood & a good selection. Less expensive than the Top of the Market but quite busy most evenings. It can be a bit noisy.

We visited the FISH MARKET and it was super. Plus it is right next to the U.S. MIDWAY, a UNITED STATES AIRCRAFT CARRIER that served during VIETNAM. Service/food and location are excellent. Joe Tosto

We enjoyed a delicious meal here after touring the Midway next door. The weather was beautiful and the small patio was a popular seating choice. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table outside, but we felt the view and fresh air was worth it. We decided to sit in the bar while we waited and were very... More
