Quality is always our first priority; all of our seafood is flown it in six days a week, always carefully inspected and only the highest quality is accepted. Menus are created daily with seasonal offerings from land and sea emphasizing seasonal ingredients for their superior taste and freshness. Our well-stocked wine cellar, selection of fine liquors, scotches and micro brewed beers perfectly compliment our menu.

  • "I went here because I saw this place on Check Please! It's a Greek Fish house. Oysters Roc had no flavor and were watery. Whitefish had no taste. Was this guy a cook in a nursing home? They put the hot sauce on the table as soon as we got the food. if it was cooked correctly, No sauce would be needed. Will not be going back!"

  • "I have been to Tin Fish many times. I always come back because the food is so exceptional. You can tell the difference in the quality of the fish from most other restaurants. You realize how much of a difference there is when you can eat fresh, high quality fish. In addition, the restaurant seems to retain servers who are experienced and knowledgable about their type of food. They always take the time to fully explain the specials, give their recommendations and answer, even the most basic, questions. We would love to dine here more often."

  • "My brother and sister-in-law were in from out of town and we ate at Tin Fish. As usual all of our meals were delicious. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient, even though the place was packed. So nice to have a special place like this in the south suburbs."

  • "We haven't been to Tin Fish since last year. But we always consider this place when we want a "good piece of fresh fish"...they didn't disappoint!! I will certainly be returning more often. Firstly, the hostess seated us with what we had requested through Open Table for remarks e.g. quiet table, where a/c is not blowing right at us. She more than accommodated this request and asked us if this was what we had in mind. Next, our waiter was a find!! He could be in any downtown restaurant. He knew his fish and he knew his wine, so we were delighted. Wine - perfect! Fish - perfect Serivce - perfect. I want to go back this week!"

  • "The food was great. My service was a little slow due to a large party that was taking place in the private dining area. The atmosphere was great. I was there to celebrate my birthday with a party of 10. The prices were moderate but worth it. I will visit again."

  • "Tin Fish was not a horrible dining experience however I don't think we will return. It has an air of being a higher end restaurant and truly its not. Food was mediocre as was the bar selection. We felt rushed to get from one course to the other."

  • "We went to Tin Fish for our 6th Anniversary. It was very clean and not crowded at 6:30pm on a Saturday evening. We were immediately greeted by our server and our Calamari was served within 7-8 mins of ordering. The cocktail sauce was vibrant in flavor, as it is made in house. For entrees, we had sautéed scallops with brussel sprouts, shallots, and bacon and a Ribeye and Austrailian twin lobster tail. Scallops were cooked to perfection and seasoned right. The brussel sprouts were absolutely delicious! The steak was cooked as requested, was moist, and soft as butter when cutting. The tail was perfectly cooked and not rubbery. For dessert, we had a a sampler of pecan pie, cheesecake, and creme brûlée. Outstanding! Service = superb!"

  • "Usually have great meal. Don't mind higher prices for good food. This time, not good. Didn't have record of my reservation thru open table. Wife's salmon and side dish were cold. I ordered catfish, awful, might as well have gone to a fast food restaurant. Server was ok."

  • "I ate at Tin Fish with 3 of my friends before a concert. This is the fifth time eating at Tin Fish...I have had good meals 3 out the 5 times. First experience for my friends and they all enjoyed their entrees - scallops, swordfish, catfish. I did not enjoy the salmon. I would go back, but would not order salmon as both of my bad experiences involved salmon (on of my favorites dishes). Nice restaurant in an area where choices are limited."

  • "Had great salmon flatbread for 1st time; calamari made perfect, Sea Bass fresh & tasty. Knowledgeable wait staff, fast out of the kitchen. Told business customer "anything in the menu is great - true!"

  • "The food was pretty good. It seemed better last time we were there. The server was rude. When I asked him about one of the specials. He was very rude about it and said, "sir, you aren't understanding, ..." In a loud rude tone. I don't mind spending money on a nice dinner, but not when I have rude service. He rarely came around, especially when he got a larger group table. The couple times he did come around, rather than ask us how everything is. He would say. Everything is tasting good, right and just walk away! He seemed very condasending and robot like. We were dropped off a desert menu and waited over 20 minutes to come back for the order. I asked for the pecan pie and the check so we didn't have to wait long for the check."
