A word from Tin Fish
A modern version of the 1940 seafood houses of the Atlantic shore, Tin Fish brings a family friendly sophisticated dinner house to the south suburbs of Chicago. 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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "A good dining experience. The food was good. Prefer it to popular downtown Chicago fish restaurant because of ease of parking and no traffic congestion."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Awesome! We go there at about once a month or more and always look forward to a truly wonderful meal and great drinks and desserts. There is not a better place for fish! The sides are as delicious as the the entree too. The chef does an outstanding job!"

  • "I really enjoy this wonderful restaurant. Their specialty is, of course, their seafood, but they have a complete menu that is sure to please a wide variety of tastes. It is more expensive than some, but certainly not the most expensive place to enjoy the kind of menu and the superior quality of food and service that they have to offer. I would definitely recommend the Tin Fish to anyone who wants to have a nice dinner or celebrate a special occasion."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "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."

  • "Highly recommend for really good seafood. The restaurant itself is not very large so it can get a little bit crowded, especially by the bar area. The waitstaff was excellent, attention to detail and very warm and friendly. The food is a little bit pricey but worth every bite! Will come back very soon."

  • "The staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and the food is awesome. They have great seasonal offerings depending what is available. The food is not cheap, but you definitely get more than what you pay for. Great wine list and the bourbon offerings with Buffalo Trace and Eagle Rare sealed the deal for me. "

  • "We were there for Mother's Day which they told us was fully booked and could not accomodate my two children. The entire time we were there over half of the tables were empty. We were having a great meal and we were not there for any ridiculous amount of time. We sat down at 1:15 and didn't start eating until after 2:15 because we got appetizers. The manager kept peeking around the corner to see if we were done and two minutes after our dessert he sent the bus boy to take our drinks right from infront of us while we were still drinking to hurry us out! We were not rude and we were only occupying the table for two hours! Our bill for four of us was over $200 and we left over 20% for a tip. On top of it no one was waiting for a table. "

  • "I have been twice now, and both times have been a great experience. Once sitting at the bar and the other in the dining room. Bartenders are fantastic! Got my order exactly how I asked for it prepared! (I was picky due to allergies) and same goes for when I dined in. Great place and I'll recommend everyone try it!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I made a reservation for two approximately an hour and a half befor our arrival. Once we arrived, we were seated immediately. As always, the service was great and the wait staff was very attentive. The food was good; Risotto was over cooked and that is my reason for the good rating on the food. This is a problem uncharacteristic of Tin Fish. Everything else was up to their normal high quality level. This will continue to be our "go to" south suburban sea food restaurant."
