“Outstanding Lobster Roll!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

I visited this restaurant for the first time yesterday noon while visiting a friend in Glastonbury. It was her suggestion. A great suggestion! Living in New England, we have the luxury of sampling lobster rolls at many venues, both small and large. Although this inland version of a seaside food emporium can be very busy, it is well worth the wait. As one waits in line to place an order in this actual seafood store, the large saltwater tubs are readily visible and display lobsters of all sizes available for purchase. Fried clams - whole or strip - are also offered along with many other choices. To complement your order, you may select french fries (enormous!) or chowder (We did - delicious and chock full of fresh clams!) among other "sides." The fresh, hot lobster roll is served either with or without "salad" filler. Either way, this is probably the best lobster roll I have enjoyed in quite a while! The adjoining restaurant area is self-serve but clean and comfortable.

“Great place for FRESH seafood dinners!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

City Fish offers amazing fresh seafood to dine in or take out.
There hours are on the brief side, and the dining in is 'self serve' for the most part, but
the BEST part is the food. The fish and chips are crispy and NOT AT ALL greasy! The fries are tasty and the coleslaw is FRESHLY MADE and delicious!!
The lobster rolls are meaty and packed full.
All around anything you choose here is quality!

“You would be hard pressed to find fresher fish!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

My husband and I stopped by to check the place out for lunch. This is a busy place and do a big take out business plus those who chose to eat inside keep the seats filled! You go into what seems like a fish warehouse(that is exactly what it is!) and order your meal at counter. They serve meals up in boxes and bag them,then you can take out or step up to a comfortable dining room and eat in. Enroute to dining room you pass fish store with an amazing array of fresh fish. I have never seen a fishmonger like it in Ct!! In the dining room there is table service. For wine, beer and water-no tipping required. My husband had the fried oysters and chips and I had the whole bellied fried clams and chips. Both the oysters and clams tasted very fresh and delicious and the portion was good. I would have preferred another choice for the fries as I try to steer clear of them and left mine....cole slaw perhaps or small salad? The lady who served our waters was very pleasant and had worked there for 32 years! Clearly those eating around us had been there before and were repeat customers! For us having this fresh fried non greasy seafood was a treat..not fine dining but darn good food. Also when I checked out the fresh fish counter I saw the swordfish which looked particularly good so on the way out I bought a nice one pound plus piece for our dinner. it was one of the best swordfish I have ever cooked! So a double delicious fish whammy for us. The place is unique for sure,the fish could not be fresher or better and prices are fair. Do try City Fish once and check out the fresh fish huge counter and take some home to try as well.
