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. Stop in and see first-hand how Tin Fish brings the sea shore to Tinley Park.

    Had the buffalo shrimp and maytag blue cheese chips for apps. Both very good. My wife had the swordfish and it was a very large piece. I had the scallops with Cajun sauce, and two of the scallops were gritty and the sauce was more of a stew of green and red bell peppers. Totally not expected and not to my liking at all.

    Their were four of us in the dinner party and all agreed the meal and drinks were "excellent". If you like fish this is the place to go. Their is a variety of fresh fish, but also for meat lovers you have some great choices. The wait staff was terrific, didn't feel rushed. Would highly recommend Tin Fish. Will definitely go back!!!

    This gem of a restaurant was recommended by local patrons and some as far away as Portland Oregon! I'm glad I took their advice. My companion was being treated to a Birthday Lunch and I am very glad that I chose Tin Fish. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our visit. The service was amazing and the made-to-order Bloody Marys were excellent. The support staff was efficient and even the Ladies Room was above par. Thank You!

    We had never seen baby back ribs on the the menu before, so we had to give them a whirl. They had some resistance coming off the bone, but we did not find this a deterrent. We were able to get the sauce on the side, which was appreciated. While the sauce was excellent, I preferred mine without the sauce as they were seasoned wonderfully. We also enjoyed the whitefish and two 1/2 bottles of wine, since it was 1/2 price wine night! :) Service was also excellent. We love Tin Fish and dine there 1-2 times a week!

    My wife and I both had gumbo as a starter. It wasn't hot and had very little in it other than liquid. This was proceeded by an assurance that the drinks ordered would be promptly brought while a wine ordered was chilling. They came out toghether. Our waiter who had good intentions seemed disorganized and flustered. Our entree's (walleye over squash) were only O.K., overpowered by the squash. Overall, our experience, which had been very good in the past, was only fair to poor this time. It is unlikely that we'll return. There are quite a few choices for fish/seafood that are better in the Chicago area.

    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.

    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!
