I love this place..... it may not be like a sitdown restaurant but just judging food it is always spot on. The freshed fish anywhere and you can get it prepared a lot of different ways. People are super nice and food absolutely delicious and fun to pick out your fish. And they do have tables and a great outdoor... 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.

A friendly little place in Kerrytown; we have eaten their several times and every time the food was excellent. They have a great variety of chowders and bisque; we love the gazpacho; their fish sandwiches are also very good, and often have oysters from MA and WA. They can also sell you fish, the prices are fairly reasonable. The only... More

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. Monahan's is a must in the midwest for anyone who loves great seafood. The service... 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, and wonderful tasting fish. It was exactly what we needed. A little table next to... More

Located inside a little mall, by the farmer market in Ann Arbor. There are few tables available (although I saw a sitting area not far away, in the mall) crammed between the counter and the wall, so I believe it won't be easy to find a spot during peak time. We got there at 2:00pm, so it wasn't a problem.... More

I'm still savoring the slick oysters down my throat after the meal. After researching on line as to where to find fresh oysters, we are happy to report that this place surpasses our expectation. We were so happy to find a parking space in Kerrytown after circling for a while in a busy game day Saturday. After walking in the... 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.
