We stopped in here for lunch and found Joe Fish to be kind of like its name, rather bland and generic. An order of the fish and chips was good, if nothing exceptional. My co-diner had a special of tuna poke which did not come as advertised, but the server corrected it when this was brought to her attention. Service... More

Consistent with past reviewers the general takeaway is average food and drink at above average prices. There is a high bar for New England based seafood restaurants, especially those near the coast. Joe Fish doesn't cut it. It's too bad. The potential is there but a C for effort at best. The fried seafood platter was overdone, under portioned and... More

While the place is still pleasant, the food has gone way downhill. I had fish'n'chips; the breading was over-seasoned and heavy, and the fish was badly overcooked. My wife had Thai shrimp; while the sauce was tasty, the shrimp had the whiff of ammonia that indicates extended storage after thawing. We've been there many times, but no more.

Joe Fish has a large variety of fresh seafood options with a great "low cal" mini menu which I like to use to keep those calories down. The food is fresh and delicious every time. That being said, it a very busy and loud place. Service is friendly and I find is better when the group is smaller. Recent visit... More

Been here several times and find that Joe Fish delivers exactly what's expected; fresh seafood and shellfish cooked to request and served up correctly with all the trimmings you ask. Tonight my lobster was great, my littlenecks were large and tasty, the ocean taste was strong on both. Joe's comes in with a bowl of saltwater wash and another of... More

Always a great meal at Joe Fish, the service is great and the selection is great as well, try the grilled shrimp, or haddock Maria, they usually have creative specials.

Have been here on numerous occasions. Seafood is good, though a tad expensive, especially the lobster dishes. Service is good and the staff is pleasant. Food is well prepared. Last time we were there they had a couple of large groups. Service was exceptional and food was served promptly.

This place was recommended to us by a local with whom we chatted, while at Whole Foods. She was correct in her recommendation!

The family went to celebrate a big birthday, We had a reservation and our table was ready when we arrived. They made us feel glad we came. The wait staff was full of enthusiasm and could not be nicer. The food was great and we had a great time. Can't wait to go back

Took the family here, hadn't been in a few years. Noticed the place had a face lift & was a lot brighter. Service was courteous & prompt. Only complaint was I had to fire off a flare gun to order another drink but she was busy. Fried food was done very well, Portuguese clam chowder had a nice kick. All... More
