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

Good value and large portions. Cooked to order, the fried clams and fried shrimp are a bit greasy but tasty. The fries are large cut and very good. The price is right. You can also eat upstairs. You know the fish is fresh.

For a yummy "fish fix", when inland, City Fish, on Silas Deane Hwy, in Wethersfield, CT hits the spot. Hearty portions in their classic fish and chips (French fries) meal, for when you want a taste of the seashore!

I can't say enough about City Fish. Working in East Hartford, it's a quick shot over the bridge to get there. I signed up for their weekly specials and receive them via e-mail every Tuesday night. (Thank you Davina). Their belly clams are by far the best I have ever eaten. The worst thing about fried clams is that one... More

Lobster rolls at City Fish are better than most you'll find in Maine. OK maybe some in Maine are a tiny bit better, but is it worth traveling that far in hopes of finding one. I think not.
