This is the lunch place to go for anything from the sea. Their specials are to live for......especially the daily chowders paired with great bread .& butter.

We had an Oyster Po Boy that was as good as the one we had in New Orleans. They might only serve them on Saturdays at lunch. I wish they had more seating.

It's just a counter with a little extra seating, so don't come for the decor or the atmosphere. The fish is fresh and the folks behind the counter know how to cook fish properly. I've never had a bad or badly-cooked piece of fish --...More

If you want the best fresh fish ever....Monahan's is the place to go. Great selections and it's in a great location. You can get an entire dinner to fix right there in Kerrytown without having to travel anywhere else.

This is a quaint little restaurant tucked away in Kerrytown. I tried the lunch special, fish sandwich on a Zingerman's roll with home made tarter sauce. Quite busy in a Friday lunch hour but not problem finding a seat.

I eat here as often as I can. The saffron seafood chowder is awesome! I also enjoy the Thai chili salmon with basmati rice. Fried softshell crab sandwich is excellent. I am a saltwater fisherman and I eat fresh fish regularly at the NC coast....More

I have had seafood chowder here 3-4 times. Each time it has been different but each time excellent. You can't beat their seafood chowder for lunch.

On a cold, drizzly and windy day, we arrived at Monahan's after the time lunch is served, but we were told that we could order their chowder. What a treat for our cold, tired traveling bodies. The chowder was delicious, full of corn, other veggies,...More

Monahan's has been in business for over 37 years. Lunch is served 11-3 Mon-Sat. Not only do we have a bountiful case of fresh seafood daily, we fillet whole fish in store. We have an ever-expanding file of recipes in the store and here on our site. We also offer a full complement of made-to-order, easy-to-heat take-home gourmet meals. And if you come by our store at lunchtime, we'll happily serve you the daily special, something from our menu or cook to order any item in our case.
