- Nice room, average foodRpippyDined on 1/16/2014Food was ok but nothing special. Service was off a bit, had to wait for drinks. This place has potential but they need better varieties of fish, not common place tilapia and haddock.
- Great seafood restaurantAugiePDined on 1/15/2014This was my third time dining at the 3rd & Ferry Fish Market. The food is fantastic. They have a terrific fresh bar coupled with a menu with a wide variety of selections. The grouper was delicious. Wonderful friendly staff. I would highly recommend this restaurantSpecial Features:
- Excellent RestaurantRosalieDined on 1/15/2014We have been to this restaurant twice in one week, once for lunch and once for dinner. My husband felt his seafood combination was the best seafood he ever had. I had crab cakes and they were all crab meat-yummy. We had an excellent waiter both times and we even got to speak to the chef, who was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We will be back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Gott try it!44dinnerDined on 1/11/2014What a great place for lunch or dinner! If you love seafood, you're going to love this place!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Has potential but not there yet.DiDellDined on 1/11/2014We were there for over 2 hours, but didn't get beverages until 20 minutes after we were seated. We were also seated upstairs on the balcony, which was very dark. Salads were good. The Calamari had good flavor but was cold, as were the house fries with aoil - and greasy as well. Way too much aoli, and being cold made it inedible. Steamed shrimp was hot and the cocktail sauce was nice and spicy. Beef carpaccio was good as well. The coffee was hot and fresh, but the pie a la mode was inconsistent. My friend had the cranberry pear pie, which was light and refreshing. I had the apple pie, which was rather bland and still frozen. The ice cream tasted bland as well, nothing special.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Enjoyable...JMD14Dined on 1/11/2014Overall we enjoyed our experience. Food was good, service was good, but it was over the top loud. Hard to have a conversation. I enjoyed my combination platter, crab cakes were excellent. Lobster Bisque was good, but a bit too spicy. My husbands dish was a bit flat. Lobster Newburgh sauce lacked flavor. Dessert menu was pretty boring, but the ice cream we ordered was delicious.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fantastic New Restaurant!OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 1/11/2014We had a party of 7 people and had excellent service and the food was amazing! We had a few special requests that were met with a "no problem" attitude! The food is great- service was equally good! Looking forward to trying lunch soon!Special Features:
- Food was good...we were satLuv2eatDined on 1/10/2014Food was good...we were sat right away...restaurant is very noisy, tables are very close together, good service. They need a different dessert menu...they only have pie (from a terrible bakery) and ice cream ( from purple cow..yum!). That's it! Pie and ice cream....terrible...needs more of a variety.Special Features:
- A pleasant first visitdrbrbuDined on 1/10/2014Had a very enjoyable evening. Good service. Fine food. Nice atmosphere. Would like to have seen a few more menu and specialty drink options but, on the whole, we were satisfied with the experience. Another fine restaurant for downtown Easton.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- 1/9/2014doliketoeatDined on 1/9/2014A friend and I went to this restaurant for dinner on a Thursday night. We were surprised at how many people were there and did note the corresponding noise level. However, it did not seem to impact greatly on our ability to converse. I had the poached haddock-excellent . Well done, nice sauce and accompanying vegetables. I also ordered whipped potatoes and we both found them to be rather tasteless, and we left them virtually untouched. My dinner companion ordered the fish and chips and the fish was excellent, nicely breaded and fried and very tasty. Service was attentive and knowledgeable. Nice wine selection with prices comparable to most restaurants in the area. Atmosphere had an electric quality but not like a traditional "bar scene."Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- First timeOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 1/8/2014Great first time impression. The service and food was very good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Welcome to Easton!FrodoDined on 1/8/2014So thrilled to have a new dining experience in the newly emerging Easton. Wonderful service, great bar and fresh seafood with amazingly large portions. The menu Is fabulous.......very interesting AND manageable. Looking forward to our next night out at "3rd & Ferry"!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Seafood saturday nightLeopardVIPDined on 1/4/2014Fish and chips with crab aioli were the best of the main courses that we had, generous portions with tasty fries and good combination with aioli. Seafood platter was good with the crab cakes the best with the sauteed scallops and shrimp that were average. Dessert choice limited with pie and ice cream but were tasty. Nice atmosphere but maybe a little dark upstairs and a bit loud in the low ceiling balcony. Overall, nice restaurant with pleasant and comfortable decor.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Welcome Downtown Easton AdditionKraftyjaDined on 1/4/2014The crab cakes were OK, but I have had better with less filling and more lump crab. The scallops however were the best I ever had - pan seared to perfection and the fried shrimp were lightly battered and very tasty. The dish was served with a clambake hash which is a combo of red potatoes and chorizo. An interesting and tasty side. The corn on the cob was rather bland and not very sweet. The broccolini was crisp yet cooked, lightly buttered and sweet. My husband had the scallops which are pan seared and served with a brussel sprout slaw. Very tasty. For dessert, I had the vanilla ice cream (how can you mess that up?) and coffee. The coffee reminded me of very tasty diner coffee. We will be back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great foodJpagsDined on 1/4/2014Nice ambiance, good location. Menu choices fish-centric. Not great for someone who doesn't eat fish. Soup trio was delish. Wine menu good. Service needs some work being more polished.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A bit pricy for the qualityBrittDined on 1/3/2014I went here for my birthday and was very disappointed.The food was not all that great.The bisquits were dry and cold as if they had been sitting out all day. The Market Fries were supposed to be tossed in a crab aioli but were instead smothered in them making them hard to eat. The aioli itself was good but you can't eat a lot of it.The fries themselves were dried out and tasted as if they had been sitting out and reheated. My lobster roll was very good and I would reccommend that. I got canoli pie for dessert and again was disappointed.The crust was dry and had no flavor.They put way too many chocolate chips in it so that was all that you could taste.I think this restaurant has potential to be fantastic.It just needs to work out the kinks.Special Features:
- Great Date-Night LocalemajorstressDined on 12/31/20133rd & Ferry Fish Market is a great place to go for a special occasion or just a casual gathering, especially if you are a fan of fresh seafood and a top-notch raw bar. The staff is helpful and friendly, the menu offers high-end fare without gouging the prices, and their building-length bar has plenty of room for the casual diners or drinking companions. I also hear that they are opening up a family-oriented dining area below the main room, so that should be an additional draw. Great place with great things in store for the future, can't recommend it enough. Quick Tip: The do not skimp on the servings, so if you aren't prepared for a huge meal, you can easily make do with a couple of their excellent appetizers.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Food was good and price wasDatenightDined on 12/31/2013Food was good and price was fair, and although my server was just fine, there was a three ring circus going on around us. Perhaps it was a new staff trying to find its rhythm, so I'll give it another chance for sure. The fish and chips was a huge portion - light, flakey and delicious. Disappointed to learn that the salmon was farm raised - not cool for a "fish market",I would recommend this to a friend.
- Was expecting morerickDined on 12/31/2013In 2013 I probably spent $3,000 dining in the section of Easton. As a fan of seafood I was expecting this new restaurant to live up to the name Fish Market. Would have been nice to see more fish on the menu. My dish was ho-hum, I already forgot what it was. My fiancee had tilapia and the sauce tasted just like the soup from the sampler. The soup sampler consisted of watery soups. In short, I have had better fish at Mesa, Valenca, and River Grille. Even Ruby Tuesday has a lobster tilapia that rivals the one here, and for a fraction of the price! Service was okay for New Years Eve at 8pm.. I suppose. When a friend comes into town we will probably give this one more try.
- New Years Eve delightdrhadVIPDined on 12/31/2013Had the special cocktail, "the Resolution"- excellent. Surf and Turf perfect. Middle neck clams on the half shell appetizer very good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Love, love, love it!mathteachDined on 12/31/2013Even though this restaurant had only been open for a few weeks, it handled a New Year's Eve crowd with ease. Everyone that I saw was pitching in and doing over and above their own personal job to make sure that all diners had a pleasant experience. The highlights: The Market fries are a must, the seafood combination was an excellent mix of everyone's favorites, my husband's steak was wonderful (tender and a healthy portion), and the prices were extremely reasonable. The only criticisms I have are that the tables are a little close for my liking. Also, our waitress never told us the drink specials from the bar and I would have liked to try one of those. Overall, it was an excellent seafood dining experience and I can't wait to go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- new years evefoodieDined on 12/31/2013It was New Year's eve so there was a lot of activity. The servers were very good although we had to wait a while for our main course. Again, due to it being New Year's eve. Did like the cooking that was done up front so the chefs could be viewed from the street. Tables were a bit cramped as the aisles were wide enough to accommodate one person at a time which had the servers at a disadvantage. Food very good and we would frequent the restaurant again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent Choice!BigDogDined on 12/31/2013Great value and terriffic food - what more could anyone ask for? The chef is outstanding!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fourth timemyfav1Dined on 12/28/2013This was my fourth time at 3rd and Ferry and each visit is better than the last. The food is fresh and the service is excellent. My favorite is the Rhode Island Calamari. Crabed stuffed talapia is outstanding. The Fish and Chips is plentiful. The batter on the fish is light and the fish is flaky. The cole slaw was fresh and the dressing on it very light. I would highly recommend this restaurant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Mmm mmm goodJerwalDined on 12/28/2013Had heard of the place from a relative who lives in Easton and vowed to du Ine there the next time I was in town. Had lunch on a Saturday afternoon and was not disappointedSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Give it a few more weeksClydeDined on 12/27/2013Service VERY slow. My husbands fish was dry. The speciality fries came out cold. It took us almost 2 hours to get our dinner. Kinks have to be worked out.
- DisappointinggastrogodDined on 12/22/2013Crab cakes were great. I've had better lobster bisque from a can. Scallops were good, nothing spectacular. $46 ribeye left a LOT to be desired; no seasoning at all. As Robert Irvine tells every chef at every restaurant, put a little salt and pepper on the steak. Very limited dessert menu. Where's the cheesecake? Where's the chocolate cake? Easton Bakery right up the street!
- Still a little ways to goPhilDined on 12/22/2013Came for a birthday celebration for Sunday lunch with our 25 year old - who wanted seafood. Had a calamari appetizer, 3 lobster rolls and the crab cake sandwich. Unfortunately, only the sandwich truly satisfied. The calamari and lobster suffered the same fate - rubberyness from over cooking. Plus the garlic on the lobster was a bit overpowering and isn't needed to bring the simple pleasure as a sandwich from a Maine lobster shack. With a nice ambience and a great wait staff, this hopefully can get remedied before the restaurant's grand opening in January. Prices were moderate, but still reasonable.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing food poor serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 12/21/2013Overall the food is the Ireason we would go back. We blame our mediocre experience on our waiter who seemed inexperienced and untrained. The hostess and others aroun seemed very pleasant but our waiter was just bad.Special Features:
- Nice new spot in Easton for SeafoodDonMcDined on 12/21/2013We visited this spot the third week it was open - the food was very good and the restaurant ambiance is conducive to a busy metro restaurant. Service speed was good - not too fast and not too slow - just right IMO. The servers need a little polish - simple things like how to handle special requests, how to clear a table weren't consistent but all in all this should develop into a very nice local spot!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Dinner with good friends onchuckoDined on 12/21/2013Dinner with good friends on Saturday evening. First, we were seated in a very dark corner of the restaurant. candle was missing on the table, asked for one to help read menu but never came till after we ordered, then we had to ask for one again. Our server was not very knowegable and seemed quite flakey. Did'nt see much of her. First course came and my soup was lukewarm and sent it back. Dinner finally came and 3 out of 4 entrees were lukewarm, telling me that these entrees sat for awhile waiting to be delivered. Which was a shame because the flavors were quite good. Needless to say , we were quite dissappointed. Management needs to step up.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not very good at allOpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 12/21/2013We were extremely disappointed with the whole experience. Food was not very good, took forever until we were served. Ambiance is not very nice. Just a bad experience. If you make the trip to downtown Easton, please pick one of the other delicious restaurants. Maxim's 22, Sette Luna, Valenca. They are all awesome, this one doesn't fit.Special Features:
- DisappointingOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 12/20/2013Went on a crowded Friday night. Noise level was too high. tables too close together. this place got a great review in the paper. neither service nor food lived up to billing. would not go back or recommend.menu is so-so in terms of selection, especially wine by glass and martini choices minimal.
- Excellent Everything!EastonFoodie522Dined on 12/20/2013My boyfriend and I had been wanting to try Third and Ferry Fish Market since it opened. Well, we finally did, and I have to say that we had an excellent experience! The service was fabulous, and our server had a great personality! She was cracking jokes with us and always made sure that we were taken care of. The food was amazing as well. We had the Calamari for our appetizer and I can honestly say it was one of the best I've ever had. It was not rubbery or chewy, so you know it was fresh and not frozen. I had the Fish & Chips..HUGE portion, I had to box the leftovers to take home. My boyfriend's NY Strip Steak was melt-in-your-mouth good. I highly recommend this place and can't wait to go back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ExperienceNorthamptonCCDined on 12/20/2013We decided to choose 3rd & Ferry Fish Market because it was new and we like to try new restaurants. Food was good, service a little slow but understandable since it was right before Christmas and it was very busy that day for their lunch crowd. Overall...we would all go back. One of my co-workers even purchased a gift card for someone before we left.Special Features:
- It's still newOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 12/17/2013We thought the the tilapia and the lobster bisque were just a little bland. Just not as much flavor as we expected and this may be perfect for some. The restaurant was set up very nice, not all crammed together. I gave it a perfect score for service and ambiance.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Enjoyed our dinnerMaryDined on 12/15/2013Our 1st visit was good. We had tuna & a salad to start...I liked the tuna my husband did not. Salad was ok nothing special. We got grilled salmon & blackened grouper, both were very good. Ended our meal with butterscotch pecan pie & mint chip ice cream...we enjoyed both.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fish-tabulous!TerryDined on 12/11/20133rd & Ferry Fish Market is a hit! Wonderful space with great staff and terrific fare! The four of us all had different meals, and all of the fish dishes were fresh and deliciously prepared. There is a good beer selection, and some good wines. (The wine list is not deep however). Prices are very good, particulary considering the quality of the food. The wait staff were attentive, courteous and prompt -- no complaints here.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great startBurkeStDined on 12/11/20133rd & Ferry Fish Market is a great addition to the dining scene in downtown Easton. Convenient parking right across the street, great ambiance, outstanding seafood (we had the scallops, stuffed flounder, oysters, salmon, all excellent). We'll be back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Opening weekMCDORNDined on 12/7/2013Very excited to try the new restaurant. Our Lobster Bisque was cold, and the crab claws appeared as if they had been prepared weeks before. The open air kitchen provided the restaurant with a show but all the smells from the preparation of food permeated the entire restaurant. We actually had to wash our coats as they smelled like grease from the kitchen. To end the night, the hostess actually asked us to finish so she could have the table for the next reservation. In all my years of dining out, I have never been asked to leave because they needed the table.
