This is the only fish market you need to go to! It's the real deal watching them load fish right off the boat. We even drove 40 mins round trip and it was totally worth every mile. Loved that they offered both raw and cooked...More

When you arrive, you won’t believe this place has such a high Trip Advisor rating. It’s a dumpy, run-down looking place with one sad little eat-at counter. From the cinder blocks propping up the cash register stand to the paper plates and plastic cutlery, it...More

It doesn't get anymore fresh or hands on @ Menemsha Fish Market. You are literally at the docks and you get small free samples of bisque and chowder before purchasing :-)

Stopped here for lunch and found the cold lobster roll and clam chowder to be very good. This small market is perfectly located in Menemsha Harbor. The weather was great. So, we enjoyed our lunch on the deck behind the market. We will return here.

A bus tour unloaded at lunch time so we waited them out for about 20 minutes and returned. Amazingly the staff was still friendly after the onslaught of customers and we ordered the Smoked Tuna Melt and a Lobster Roll along with some clam chowder....More
