We stopped here to partake in the "buck-a-shuck" happy hour and had the best time. We had a couple of glasses of prose co and shared a dozens oysters, which were delicious of course. We chatted to the friendly owner/manager who was both knowledgeable and fun! She was passionate about fish! We would have loved to return, but couldn't make it work.

In a town where mediocre food at outrageous prices is the norm, The Fish Store is a welcome breath of fresh air. Very well-prepared seafood in a nice location and with a staff that is friendly and knowledgable. The smoked fish is amazing, Salmon Belly in particular, oyster happy hour from 7 to 9 pm is a great deal. Chowder and Thai Shrimp dishes looked excellent, though we did not order these. Even the salads were well done. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Visited on a beautiful day. Unfortunately, the restaurant ambiance didn't match the tone of the day nor the locale. Meals were fresh but small in portion size and overpriced. Definitely an average experience.

The food and service is so amazing being from the island this is the best seafood we had! So fresh and tasty we had the mussels and clams, the thai prawn dish, the fish plate and clam chowder OMG the clam chowder yum! Home made right from scratch at every order can you say amazing?

The seafood is to die for! Second to none in my books. It was right from the pacific to my plate and was amazing! Oysters were the best! The prawn Thai chilli dish wasn't far behind. I love seafood and this was some of the freshest I have ever had. Spectacular. The service was friendly and the entire atmosphere made me want to move in. I can't wait to come back.
Thank you!!!
