If you like perch or walleye, this is the place to go! It's fresh and well prepared, and the servings are generous. It does cost a bit more than other restaurants, but the quality is worth it!

We went for supper and got there just as they opened at 5 pm, so we didn't have to wait. We split the Captain's Platter, which was a variety of fish, all fried. There was not much on the menu that was not fried, but...More

The fish market is behind the restaurant (drive around the corner to W 5th St) and has a wonderful selection of fresh fish. My wife and I particularly love the Lake Erie (Yellow) Perch. The friendly folks in the fish market have a lightly breaded...More
