    Went to visit our son for parents weekend at KU and he wanted a good steak (I know this is a fish place but heard steaks were good too) We had steak and seafood and everything was great. Got in right away at reservation time, ate outside and enjoyed oysters, Ahi tuna nachos for starters. Rib eye was cooked perfect along with ny shrimp pasta I would highly recommend!

    Love this restaurant & highly recommend it. We travel from CO to IN once a year with our retriever, stay downtown Lawrence & walk to Mass Fish House. It is always a joy, the food amazing and fun that our pup can be with us. Their staff is very accommodating.

    All of the food and drinks we ate here was excellent. However, the restaurant is more of a bar that has shellfish then a restaurant. The menu is extremely limited. You get shellfish. That’s it. No potato, bread, vegetable, etc. Even the fish options were not terribly varied. But if you want shellfish, it is very good.

    My friends and I enjoyed a late summer happy hour outside. Very nice service. Fresh oysters 2$ each during happy hour. The music was a little loud but staff turned it down at our request. Good people watching.

    We love this place but service was not up to par with previous visits. For 250$ plus for 3 people in this category I expect excellent service every time… I don’t plan on ever boxing up my own food again.

    It was our 50th wedding anniversary. Our daughters purchased a bottle of champagne as a surprise, unfortunately we never received it😢 While the food and service was great, we are really disappointed that we did not receive the champagne they had purchased.

    Service was intermittent at best. I order a caesar salad and the trout main entree. The salad not only didn’t come out before the meal, but was dumped on top of the entree and served to me that way. The restaurant apologized for the chef’s dish and the waiter was informed of the mess. It was replaced in 5 minutes with a piece of fish that was barely warm.

    Driving home from Colorado to Maryland. Jackson, our server, was attentive and friendly. Small menu but each dish carefully prepared and delicious. Semi freddo dessert split among us was to die for. If we pass through Lawrence again, that’s where we are going!

    We had such a wonderful dinner at Mass St Fish Market last night! Our server gave us the perfect, appropriate amount of attention and the food was delicious ! We each got a pasta / seafood entree and couldn’t decide which one we liked better! We always get the Bang Bang Shrimp—spicy and very tasty!
