Food is fresh and service is always great! My favorite is the the charbroiled Prawns. I’ve never had them anywhere like these before. Another favorite is their Shrimp Cocktail. You can call ahead for reservations on Friday & Saturday.

Once your eyes adjust this is a great place for seafood. It's one of only two places in town that produces Quality Seafood. I definitely recommend the Fish House for casual or fancy date night

Take note that some of the worst reviews are the most recent. This place is very expensive for what you get. Four shrimp (which were good) for $16 on the “early bird special”. Fish was slimy and undercooked. Service was also slow.

This place has really went downhill over the years. The food is below average and overpriced. If you order the fried oysters be aware they left one of mine in the half shell. And yes I’m serious

If you're looking for great German food, you've got to try the Hoffbrau. If you want fancy décor, go somewhere else!

Had dinner here with business associates, on the advice of a friend. Dim lit atmosphere, and frankly the place smelled musty. Server was very good, keeping drinks filled and checking on us. Oysters were excellent, calamari good but my main dish was very disappointing. I...More
