I love this place!! Have to eat there at least 2 or 3 times a month. I try to call in a pick up order for the Canadian white sandwich. It beats ordering when you arrive and having to stand in the special order line. We like the flavor of this fish compared to regular fish sandwich a little better.

Our family has been enjoying the fresh fish sandwiches at Coleman's Fish Market for over 20 years. We always make a point to plan our lunch time to coincide with eating at Coleman's and are never disappointed.

I love the option to buy extremely fresh fish sandwich or fresh fish to take home. However, I have a family member who has a severe egg allergy, and on my last visit 11-22-2016, when ordering fish, french fries and Mac and cheese, I inquired about egg in preparation, the clerk was rude and made no attempt to answer my...

The fish sandwich here is delicious and so is the cole slaw. The lady who takes your order is delightful! This is a no frills eatery that is something of a local tradition. It's set in a large farm market-type place. I'd recommend offering some pickles for the sandwiches.Friends told us to take our own; sadly, I'd forgotten this tip!... More

Locals like me love this place. Fresh fish market. Get in line. Make your order. Put on your condiments at the counter. Head for a seat or standing room in the market or at a table outside. Enjoy! The fish is mild, fried in non fattening oil, hot and delicious. The market, art gallery, antique shops, brewery, pie shop, cheese... More

This is a local favorite and a regional legend. The sandwiches have been featured in Gourmet Magazine as well as many other publications and worthy of the attention. The only negative is the lines you have to stand in and the possibility you will not find a table to eat your meal. My grandfather refused to stand in line for... More

Great food, but the process is horrible. They should really invest in a business consultant or use common sense to work out ergonomic/logistic/operational inefficiencies. They'd do even more business, and maybe the employees would seem a little happier. They also nickel-and-dime you to death. Original Fish sandwich is amazing, however.

I loved this market! you have a choice of several different eating adventures, I went for the spicey fries and fish with coleslaw and my husband headed over to the beef stop and ordered beef sandwich. Both meals were delicious! After lunch I grabbed a little bag of dried fruits from the deli stand in the middle, it was awesome.

While visiting friends from Wheeling we had dinner here one evening. AMAZING is all I can say, the fish sandwich is huge, and well worth the wait in line. Be sure to order your sauces when you order your sandwich. And as a side note, the LONG line is for fish sandwiches and moves FAST. If you are wanting anything... More
