                        Ultimately the problem is the quality of the food, it's low. It feels like there is an attempt to mask that with over seasoning. Oysters: very sad looking oysters. Low quality and value Fried clams: salty. I have lived in New England all my life. I have never had a salty fried clams, however it was one of the more edible dishes we had Filet: hard to really call it a filet more than a medallion or scraps. The meat was TOUGH and cooked blue rather than rare. The gentleman next to us had the same thing. Poked at his, complained and basically left. I'm hindsight we should have joined him Scallops and Shrimp casserole that came with the filet: the scallops were rubbery and had a fishy taste, reminiscent of something that's aged out. The shrimp tasted mostly of heavy pepper. Neither very edible Haddock: over seasoned to the point it was literally not edible. Drinks: cocktails were great. The tap beer was disappointing. After getting my first foamy flat beer I was told it was a new keg, I tried each of the other IPAs and every one was the same. More indicative of temperature and or pressure problems then it is a new keg. Unless of course every single beer had a brand new keg at the same time. Not probable but plausible Staff: Friendly and helpful. I paid, tipped and left. Not much point in pushing back during dinner when the problem is the ingredients being used are poor quality i.e garbage in, garbage out. Atmosphere: cool atmosphere Overall: it's a miss. For the price and low quality you may as well head towards the city and get a better value. I hope they do evaluate using higher quality meats and seafoods that negates the need for inedible over seasoning to mask it. Could be a diamond, but right now it's coal level.

                        We have been Fish customers for years. During Covid, the restaurant took a bit of a dive but recently has recovered. We were there a week ago and everything was excellent. Yesterday’s experience was not as great as my swordfish was dry and rubbery. Perhaps some of this had to do with the Mother’s Day crowd.

                        We went to Fish to celebrate our anniversary. We probably won't do that again. As others have noted, it's not as good as pre-pandemic. Food was edible, just. My fried clams were encased in a heavy cornmeal batter that made them more like fritters than fried clams. There also weren't that many clams and the flavor of the clams was overwhelmed by the breading. I've had more clams that were better in flavor, breading and quantity at a clam shack in Lancaster for a few dollars more. Scallop main dish had what appeared to be four thick slices of scallop instead of whole sea scallops. The rest of the meal was unremarkable. The best part of our meals were the the bacon truffle french fries. They were served warm, not hot which would have made them great. My wife had a $16 glass of Chardonnay that she didn't want to finish. The $9 Colombard I had was a better value. They seem to have lowered food quality to keep prices down. That's a mistake in my opinion.

                        Very nice restaurant but one of our meals came out very undercooked. Fortunately the server was very apologetic and brought back a corrected meal quickly. And we were comped for one dessert! We will return.

                        Excellent food & service. It was our first time to visit. We started with the calamari - perfectly cooked with added peppers & and a sweet/sour sauce. Kids had swordfish & haddock. We had salmon & clams. For dessert, kids has the chocolate cake & cheesecake. Amazing! Will definitely return for quality, fresh seafood.

We were a party of 8 and all I heard from everyone "outstanding", "best chowder I've ever had", "never had anything as good as this" - Jess and her staff never fail to disappoint, in fact, it keeps getting better and better! Check out the scallops with lobster ravioli a new addition to the creative menu!! Thank you thank you - we will all be back again!!

                        This is the fourth time we have eaten at FISH. We met two other couples for dinner. I would say that the food yesterday was not as good as it has been in the past. Hopefully, it was just an off day for the chef.

                        The food was very good just veeeery small portions and too expensive for the amount. We went for dollar oysters but even those were small.

                        As always a true pleasure eating at fish! Never ever disappoints I strongly recommend the new special lobster ravioli with scallops! And of course the jalapeño margarita never disappoints! Many many thanks to Jess Masterchef and owner and her wonderful staff for providing not only wonderful food but fabulous environment!

                        My wife and I made our first visit to Fish - unfortunately, it will be our last. We had hoped to find a new place for dinner. It looked interesting so we gave it a try. First, the Wine part of the name is really misleading - the wine list is sparse and certainly doesn't deserve to be called a wine bar. My wife had the seafood casserole - it tasted OK but was more Ritz crackers than seafood. I had the Seafood Fra Diavolo. It, too was only OK. 2 or 3 shrimp, a couple of scallops, several mussels, and a lobster claw. The pomodoro sauce was OK but definitely doesn't qualify as diavolo. No heat at all. We ordered off the menu and received a $48 dollar bottle of Pinot Noir. When the bill arrived the wine was listed as $56.00. After speaking with the bartender, the bill was changed. The server's comment was a "computer error" was the reason. All in all, the experience at Fish gave us no reason to return.

                        For a variety of reasons we a haven't been to Fish in sometime. Friends told us about their experience there recently very enthusiastically so we went last night. I gave it an outstanding rating in every respect from the friendly welcome, the jovial and efficient waiter and, of course, to every serving from the genuine Caesar Salad with an outstanding dressing, to each of our entrees across the fish dishes with universal approval. Highly recommended!!

                        Very quiet - nearly empty at 5:30. They have $1 oysters and $2 shrimp before 6, so that was a surprise. Menu is surpisingly big for the winter - halibut, lobster rolls, fried clams, and sea food fra diablo. Excellent wine choices.

                        My husband and I had dinner here, made reservation and couldn't get a certain time we thought was sold out but restaurant only 1/4 full when we arrived like other places. Had excellent wait service. Delicious manhattans, light salad, ordered haddock and salmon. Both were excellent, sides on the salmon were more interesting (chick peas delicious.) Food was served in a no rush timely manner. Prices were good for the quality. Overall nice experience and will go back.

                        I have not been here for 2 years due to pandemic. There used to be a manager that kept a close eye on employees, food, customers, rest rooms, etc. The food was good, similar to the past so seems the recipes/quality has passed down appropriately. However, service poor. had to stop waiter to put drink or app orders in, mistake on bill, all different people bringing food to the table, took utensils away with first course and brought main dish with no utensils, hostess continuously walking by to go talk to the kitchen (which is wide open), tap beer machine not working (no IPAs available). Just one of those items is small on its own, but for the price that is charged, all those things should not happen in the same evening. waiter was polite and trying, but it is not what it used to be. In men's bathroom, looked a bit run down, foam soap was empty, hinges on the door rusty...

                        Disappointing Valentine's experience. Over 60 minutes to wait for chowder and a salad to start us off. It was hard to recover from that. They are clearly too understaffed to properly serve their patrons.
