    I was pretty excited to go to this place because their social media account is very impressive, and the food looked wonderful. I asked what the best items on the menu were, and I ordered accordingly. I got the trout, which was really bland and kind of dry. My friend ordered the mahi mahi which was unbelievably salty. Both portions were very small and grossly overpriced. My party shared the Brussels sprouts as an appetizer. They were bland and burned. One of the people in our party got a lobster arancini which was also incredibly bland and did not taste like lobster. The cheesecake was also mid at best. Overall, this place is incredibly expensive and the food does not compare to most of the incredible (and incredibly cheaper by comparison) restaurant offerings on Mass street.

    The service was wonderful! Our appetizers and drinks were fantastic! Our meals ( three different) were just okay for the price. I ate off the "restaurant week" menu so perhaps I just got unlucky. We will definitely go back though.

    Lawrence is very fortunate to have a seafood restaurant with fresh oysters, a variety of menu options, and a great wine selection. This is the go-to place to celebrate a special occasion or simply to enjoy a delicious meal. Cheers to the Fish House!

    We arrived around 4PM. In time for happy hour. $2 daily fresh oyster from PEI. Nice house rose. We always order the Ahi Tuna wonton nachos. Tasty and discounted for happy hour. The wontons crisps were not light and crispy but heavy more like a cracker. We love this dish. We explained to our waitress that the wontons were not up to par. She went to the kitchen, there was a difference in the wontons that night. The dish was immediately taken off our bill. We love this restaurant and we will be back. A very creative menu. I ordered one of the daily specials. Mezzaluna pasta stuffed with smoked trout and a walnut and kale pesto. Very creative. Other diner had the Fish and chips which are always good. I can’t stop eating those fries.

    Very disappointed in our meals. It was all about the preparation of the fish. Trout was bland. Salmon was overcooked (crispy and hard on top, chewy and dry). I didn’t say anything and probably should have as it was the worst I’ve had in all my years of eating salmon. Brussels sprouts (appetizer) were very good. House punch was tasty. Service and ambience..... no complaints.

    There's a female hostess there that just isn't very attentive to details when it comes to seating people, and where would be best to not make it feel too crowded in an area. Aside from that, everything else was fine.

    We weren't even thinking about Happy Hour when we made reservations, but we were delighted with the HH specials. The food was delicious, the portions were sizeable (especially the Asian Nachos which was HUGE!). And the service was excellent. They have a nicely varied wine list, and the cocktails are outstanding. We look forward to coming back.

    My wife and I came in for a late dinner. The ahi tuna tacos were good. But our main courses were extremely dry almost like we was the left over fish from before. My wife had the Paella and her rice was burnt and dry. I had the salmon Cuban and the fish was dry and tasteless. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and chalk it up to the kitchen closing on a slow night but we won’t be back.

    Seated right on time for our reservation. Squash appetizer with ricotta was amazing! Entrées: paella from the regular menu, smoked salmon potpie from the specials. Both exceeded expectations. Paella had lovely signature crispy bits of rice. Potpie less gravy, more fish and veggies than the average. (Plus, an adorable octopus on the flaky pastry!). House rye old fashioned was far too sweet, but that's the only downfall we found throughout the excellent meal experience. Well-attended by our friendly server, Nicole, as well!

    Went for a birthday. We wrote in to ask if a surprise cake could be presented. It wasn’t. Food portions were small and over priced. Expected more options on the menu. Overall disappointing when we hoped it would be special. Maybe it was just an off night…

    Yet another excellent experience, food, service all excellent. A new fall menu was delightful. My group sat outside, so my ambience ratings are based on that. Eating inside there is also great, but the noise level can be a bit extreme. That's my only complaint about this place, and many others.

    Greeted warmly at door; seated at nice hi-top near entrance; hostess said to let her know of open door was too chilly. Great service throughout meal; server (did not introduce) was especially good. All 3 of us had clam chowder: OUTSTANDING… and we’ve dined in Maine! Clam cakes, swordfish bolognese and trout entrees all superb.
