This place was very good! It's nothing to look at from the outside, but our food and drinks were fantastic. I ordered a margarita --- I'm very particular with my margs and I hate when they're syrup-y and not made with fresh lime juice. Now, I don't know what the marg at Fish Monger is made with, but it was... More

I have to admit, I'm a regular patron of the Fish Monger restaurant. But, my dost recent visit, on my birthday, was exceptional. As usual, I started, with my wife, in the Hurricane Hole Tavern for a beverage. Janie, took excellent care of us, and started the celebration off perfectly Then, on to dinner. I had Chef Thom's slow roasted... More

You can't go wrong with this place. The food is good, lots of it. Nothing extra fancy, just good food and good service. On the quieter side, which is good.

The Fish Monger was recommended by a guest at the hotel we were staying at. Fish Monger has it's own boats bring fresh seafood. Sometimes, that means certain items may not be available. No Problem! The seafood is as fresh as fresh cam be. I had the Snper Classic.FANASTIC! My wife had the Pomano & Prawn. OUTSTANDING! This place is... More

We had our first visit to Fish Mongers since they opened w/new owners. When we entered we immediately liked the new bar setup and welcoming lights. The older restaurant was dark and uninviting. We were able to secure reservations for the evening and although we were early, we were seated immediately. The person who sat us, I'm thinking the owner,... More

This is totally what you want in a seafood / fresh catch restaurant !!! As mentioned a a previous review, don't judge a book by its cover!!! Upon receiving our menu the history of this place is intriguing ! Our dinner from start to finish was amazing!!! From the fresh salads to the homemade homemade granola cinammon and nutmeg bread...

Gave fish monger 3 chances over a period of time. Each time worse than the last. Our last visit my husband had fish. It was ok at best but the portion size vs price was an outrage. He was still hungry when we left. I had steak ...it was perfectly cooked medium rare but pretty much tasteless. We both had... More

Thank you to our awesome server Stephanie for helping us navigate happy hour at the Fish Monger. Ask for her when you arrive. She helped us identify the best options on the menu, although it is difficult to make a mistake. We had a great time enjoying the best selections from their Just Caught menu. While the outside of the... More

Quirky looking restaurant (looks like a Diners/Dives/Drive-In episode from the outside), does a brisk happy hour bar business. All the fish is freshly caught. Service is fine. We visited on our last vacation, and will return again.
