This is a pub-y type of restaurant/bar. It has lots of tv's playing sports and a large bar. They do however have some decent seafood. The oysters I have had there have been good and their spicy shrimp are awesome. Unless friends are in town, I tend to only go there on Friday's when they have some really good deals... More

I attended a meal at the Fish Market with six friends. We really emjoyed the meal and the service, but our waiter was a little distracted. We had dinner there and it was crowded when we arrived. However, it did get crowded before we left. My friends said the cocktails were good. Otherwise it was a good experience.

Building is old two story warehouse renovated into a restaurant and makes you feel like you could be eating somewhere back in the late 1800's. Its a good place to have fresh sea food at a reasonable (not cheap) price in old town. Anytime I have out of town guest I take them here for seafood and to walk around... More

Happy Hour was excellent - shrimp was amazing.. Half price appetizers, drink specials. I would go back for the regular time. The gal preparing our oysters and shrimp was a pleasure.

My friend wanted oysters and this is one of the few places that serve them. We then ordered Shrimp Caesar salad and seafood platter. The shrimp were very well spiced with seasoning and tasted...
