What more could you want? This place has a cute beach feel (love the big booth with pillows!), a great seafood menu, and delicious cocktails. We sampled the pumpkin martini and a mojito and both were so good! The waitstaff was excellent and our food came promptly (Did I mention the warm bread?) and was wonderful. We had the grilled...

Good selection of tasty fish, well made cocktails during a real Happy Hour. Good east/west coast oysters, calamari, crab-cakes, etc.

Went for lunch and was pleasantly surprised! They are renovating the outside but the inside was cozy. The booths have pillows and cushions that make you feel like home. There are tvs at every glance. I ordered the lunch special for $10.99 that consisted of a bowl of New England clam chowder which was very good, salad and shrimp and... More

We appreciated our server Britney. It was also blessedly quiet although that may have been due to construction. Wednesday featured crab and wine for discount but other items looked so good that we didn't take advantage. Fish grilled nicely. Even indulged in stuffed cookie, unusual for us.

Fun seafood restaurant with a relaxed-yet-active, bar-like atmosphere and a local flavor. We were there on crab night, so I had the crab leg special, which was very good. My colleague had an ahi entree, which was cooked very rare and was fresh and buttery. The drink menu is fun - an assortment of cool mixed drinks (the rum drink... More

If you like bad food , this is your place. All they want is your money. Best experience is when you eat across the street at El Tarasco while you are waiting an hour to get into the Fish Bar. What kind of fish resteraunt does not have swordfish... probably too easy to prepare corectly.

The atmosphere is fun yet not overwhelming. The service is friendly and accommodating. The line can get busy waiting for a table, but the hostess are always friendly and the wait time doe not end up being too bad. Grab a drink while you wait, I recommend their Moscow Mule, it is refreshing and you will wan tone after another.... More
