Expectations were not met. I ordered sardines with the expectation that was not at the level of being served from a can I get from a grocery store, led me down a trail that was disappointing. The food and service was just OK, which again...did not meet my expectations.More

If you’re looking for wonderful fish and made with a lot of creativity you’ve got to go to the Mass Fish Market. The staff is helpful and so nice; they made our evening perfect!

Salmon ordered was flavorful per our two diners. I ordered Lobster linguini. They were out of lobster and subbed in Prawns. Good but I will go back for Lobster linguini. Oyster were succulent. Ratoitoille was delicious. Enjoyed ambience.

For Restaurant Week, you would think restaurants would want to “represent” to draw customers back. Apparently, Mass St. Fish House didn’t get that concept. We ordered the three part restaurant week offering ($35/ person). My husband added an additional shrimp cocktail appetizer. He got 6...pinkie sized shrimp plopped on a salad plate. For $15. Really? At a fish restaurant? The salad was a 4” by 2” wedge with a few sprinkles. Our entrees were the lobster fettuccine. It was 2 cups of a soupy, tomato sauce with fettuccine pasta and 3 chunks of what we assumed was lobster. It filled less than 1/3 of the bowl. We had to ask for bread; got 3 pieces of grilled bread, no butter. The dessert was a mini cupcake sized lemon corn cake with a tablespoon of ice cream. I asked and the waitress did say the portions were slightly smaller for restaurant week. For our $100 tab, we got “small plates”... literally. Hubby still hungry and mad. We enjoy dining out at restaurants in all price levels. This one has priced themselves to be in the higher categories, but didn’t deliver...More

Upscale in a Lawrence kind of way. Very good seafood for a restaurant in the middle of the country. The service is very attentive, friendly and helpful and the atmospher and decor are nices.

Been there a couple of times now and it has become our go-to place for terrific fish. Kansas has not been a hotbed of fish restaurants up until recently when places like Mass St. Fish House figured out there is a market for good, fresh,...well prepared fish.More

My wife and I went here for brunch on a Sunday. The food and service were spectacular! They have a special on Sundays for 12 oysters and a bottle of sparkling wine all for $30. Unbeatable anywhere.The oysters were fresh and over the top. We...have had oysters in many different restaurants all over the East and West coast, and these were definitely on par with seafood restaurants on the coast. The bottle of sparkling wine was 1/2 full when we finished our brunch and they kindly packaged this up so we could take it home. We had 2 entrees after the oysters and these were equally exceptional. We hope we will have the opportunity to return to this restaurant many times in the future!More
