First time in this market. Absolutely a pleasure going in and talking to the 2 wonderful gentlemen working there. As another reviewer stated, choice may be limited to about 6-10 fresh flown in fish daily however, there are plenty of frozen choices for crabcakes, lobster tails, etc. Oh, and you can't forget the live lobster tanks....wow! The prices on their seafood are very reasonable, especially when you see the freshness! We picked a very fresh snapper filet and some middleneck clams, and both were very good! We have found our favorite seafood market now. The gentlemen working today, were very helpful and we left with big smiles on our faces, as service like that is hard to come by these days. Can't wait to come back for more!

They only stock about a dozen items each day, but it's fresh and ultra high quality. Love the lobster, of course, but I've had incredible salmon, scallops, haddock, and shrimp as well. Tom is friendly and efficient. Will return whenever I'm in Sarasota!

Don't go here if you are looking for an endless variety of seafood to choose from. Do go here if you want seafood that is guaranteed fresh. After a day, they ship leftover fish to the restaurants. This quality and freshness comes at a price - we're not talking Publix fish market here. However, the relatively small price increase is worth it in spades to us. We think seafood MUST be fresh.

Heard about this place from friends. Great food at very reasonable prices. Very good service. The place was pretty crowded when we went, but everyone was taken care of efficiently. Lobster wrap is a must. Will definitely return.
