Not only am I a Durham native but a F&B proffesional by trade. Alaways seeing Fishmongers as a staple of Brightleaf Square I had never ventured into this establishment before now.I will start by saying that when the food finally got to the table it was delicious, fresh tasting, fried shrimp great fries,great fried oysters and cold beer.The service and lack there of is a horible oversight by the management and owner and could use some professional traning.The Kitchen staff took way to long for our order but that was because they were eating crab legs with there family in between orders. Also our waiter was slow un attentive and took about a 10 minute break outside in between taking our order and then coming back inside and thenit took another 15 minutes till our food came out. We were the only order in at this time so i know it doesn't take that long to fry up a shrimpcrabcake platter and a fried oyster platter. Lack of Management and professionalism cannot be understated enough. Will not return as this is obviously the culture that the owner and management allow with the staff. Could be one of Durhams finest but cannot with current staff.
