City Fish is a local icon. It primarily serves restaurants and markets in the central CT area with a wide range of fish, shrimp, scallops, clams, lobster, etc. It has a counter where you purchase fish on a retail basis. But the real gem is their To Go area where they cook a wide range of fish and other goodies... More

Every time I go it's always fresh and good service. You get what you pay for and it's worth every penny. Plus the have a restaurant that serves some good food with a seating area away from the fish market. Whenever I go there it reminds me of the ocean. Everyone that goes always comes back for more. I always... More

Best fried seafood in the area from fish to calamari to scallops and shrimp. Awesome fries. Can take out or eat in attached dining room. The fish counter is fully stocked with all the fresh seafood you can think of with the largest lobsters I have ever seen. Prices a bit higher than grocery store but for the absolute freshness,...

Don't be duped! Their lobster rolls are highly over rated and over priced. Save your money. They built a name on quality and fair prices but now are using the name they built to overcharge!

City Fish Market is our family's favorite seafood market and we've been going there for years. They have the freshest lobster and we enjoy picking out the big ones to take home and cook. It's a very busy place and the staff hurries to take and fill orders. The cooked fish is also great and you can eat it in... More

But watch out for the price and the parking lot. This place is often insanely busy as its really the only option in town for fresh seafood which means they can set their prices where ever they want. They do offer coupons for certain days of the week but you can't use it for sale items.

Stopped in for a lobster roll--yes checked price on line and knew it was $24.95. Tasted fine---if you're in the mood for a toasted bun! Seriously skimpy on the lobster for the price charged. There are much better places to go for a hot lobstah roll. Chowder was good, homemade coleslaw bland.

This is the best place I know to buy fish. It is so consistently fresh and top quality. A bit pricey, but worth the money. You can count on City Fish!

Located conveniently off I91, this is the place to get fresh seafood. This is what you expect a fish market to be: wide variety with personal attention. If you need it cut a certain way, ask. The prices are not low but within a high reasonable range. Cooking suggestions are made when asked. There is a quick food restaurant (take-out)... More

My husband grew up in CT, so when we come home to visit he immediately needs a "whole belly clams" fix. City Fish Market is one of the best. It is a fish market, and smells like it when you walk in. There's a counter directly inside the door where you order and wait for your meal. When we've been... More
