While we had dined elsewhere, Fish Market was recommended as a great stop for a beer. The bar area was crowded at happy hour, but a rustic and cozy atmosphere. While my husband did enjoy his beer, I found that the Fish Market also has...More

Schooners of beer, great seafood dishes, service has always been good, reasonably priced for the area, has been there forever and I’ve enjoyed it forever also. Multiple levels. At one time, years ago, they owned the store on the corner also.

The food was awesome, tasty--it went down nicely with my Skooner! It was great to be there, so many memories! It is smaller than it once was years ago, but my sentimental feelings for this spot are well justified. That is what happens when you...More

Must be a different place. This restaurant has been one of my mom's favorites since the early 80's when she used to take me there as a child. As far as I know they've always been in Old Town.

Yes, they serve lobster along with crabs also. The mussels and clams are the best.
