Mitchell's Fish Market - Carmel
Book your next event with us
Soup was lukewarm and the service was quite slow. Hopefully we just hit an off night. There were a couple of large parties that caused the waitstaff to be spread thin. Hopefully our next visit will be better.
Our waiter seem to be in a hurry. We had just sat down, barely had a chance to open a menu and he was wanting our drink order. I asked for a minute to look, but he just stood at the table waiting. I then asked to just get the table glasses of water then we will make a drink decision.
That is just a small issue and will not cause me to never go back, but not the way I wanted to start my dinner.
The place was empty yet it took 30 mins to bring over dessert after we ordered it (just one bowl of ice cream). It also took almost 20 mins after appetizers were cleared to get our entrees. Our waitress was not friendly and was pushy and never smiled. The food was not worth the price either.
The bbq bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer was delicious. Best I’ve had anywhere by far. The sticky rice served with it was a good portion and very tasty. Wedge salad was crisp and plenty since Room was saved for dessert. Very attentive and thoughtful server made this a special birthday dinner out! Highly recommend for quality of food and service.
First time here in a while. Delightfully surprised. There were 5 of us so we had a large booth & all fit comfortably. Clam chowder & gumbo, thick, spicy & delicious. Salmon was really good. The green beans were just ok, not much flavor to them. Spicy rice was good & a very healthy portion. Tasted like it had meat in it. My husband ordered the filet, which he enjoyed. The mashed potatoes were ok as was the asparagus. Our friends ordered the calamari appetizer & it came with smaller spears of asparagus & red bell pepper. The seasoning on the asparagus & pepper was delicious. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their meals. Several of us took home key lime pie - in our opinion, the best we've found in Indy. The price for a whole pie has really gone sky high otherwise we would have bought a whole one to take home.
This was my first time there. As a food and beverage employee myself the service was poor and the food was subpar for the expectation. I understand the business level was high due to Mother’s Day but quality and service should not suffer. Our server seemed inexperienced and was not that attentive as he forgot my girlfriends salad and we had to ask for refills a few times. My trout was well over cooked and my girlfriends pasta came well after the rest of the food. Her pasta was lacking part of the ingredients listed on the menu. When we asked about the dessert we wanted the server said sorry they didn’t have it because it all melted. He did not offer any other suggestions either. Once we got the bill, we were over charged for the add on salad and had to ask the server about it. His response was oops sorry I forgot! I had heard many good things about the restaurant and was left very disappointed. I don’t know if I will return!
It's been several years since eating here and the experience was just meh. Portions were small, prices are high and food quality was nothing spectacular. For the money I expected more.
We had a wonderful time at Mitchell's . We celebrated mother's day with my wife and and our youngest daughter, who both happened to be absolutely incredible mothers. The food at Mitchell's was excellent and the service was impeccable. A young gentleman named Collin was our server today. He knew his job extremely well he could explain everything on the menu and check several times to be certain he had answered all of our questions. Collin knew everything about the desert menu also, which was extremely handy when all the ladies decided they would have dessert. Including our very loquacious 4 year old granddaughter. I hope we're lucky enough to have Collin as our server on our next visit.
Unfortunately there was a mishap with our order, we had to wait an extended time before it was noticed by staff, but the manager made an adjustment on our bill and the food was amazing once it arrived. We appreciated their apologies and the fact they made it right.
Anthony was great taking care of 12 of us! Very knowledgeable and recommended great options.
The food was amazing! All staff members were apologetic of any wait times encountered. They were busy due to the Mother’s Day holiday weekend. It didn’t take long for items but it must have been slower than they expected with the way they would apologize. Wonderful environment and comfy seating.
We went for an early Mother’s Day celebration. The food and service was excellent. We have been there several times and always had a great dining experience!
We had a great dining experience. The food was good. The setting was very nice.
The food and drinks were very good. The employees even better.
Bree and team provided excellent service, even though we were a multi-generation family party near large and small parties of prom teens.
A nice visit. Our server struggled a bit, but we think she was new.
Fish over cooked
Waitress had an attitude
Management needs to be more cognizant
It was my birthday dinner everything was great service was very good as well.
I wife and I were in town visiting Our son and his girlfriend. We had dinner at Mitchell’s celebrating Easter and family.The food was good and our waiter Alex was awesome.
Excellent as always. Would highly recommend to all !!!
Food was great! Server was amazing !!
They were very responsive to our needs!
The food was great, as always. However, and for the first time at any Mitchell's ( I have dined in Columbus, suburban Detroit, and Carmel), the overall experience was extremely disappointing. We were seated right next to a party of 8-10 very loud, at times obnoxious, revelers. The restaurant was very sparsely populated, yet our party of four and two other parties were all seated next to or near this table. All three tables sent the occasional glare their way, but this was a group that could not have cared less. We were forced to compete by raising our voices, just to be heard at our table. I was told that a private table had been offered to the group, but the offer was declined. On slow nights such as this, management should take control of the situation by seating the group away from all others.
We hadn't been to Mitchell's in years because they removed the ginger crusted salmon dish I liked and I never found anything else as satisfying. My daughter in law wanted to go there to celebrate her birthday. They were kind enough to put our brood in a private room which really helped since we had our 3 grandchildren there too. I was thrilled to see my favorite dish back on the menu!! Our server worked hard to keep everything going and she did an outstanding job. We'll be back!
We had three people order crab legs and they did not have enough crab for those orders so one person had to change their order - we are fans of Mitchell’s but everything seemed off tonight - waitress and service was good but food was off - sides were cold (fries and mash potatoes) - thought they should have taken something off the bill when three people wanted crab and couldn’t get it
Great lunch/- Food was excellent!
Chef made a remarkable meal. Server was outstanding. Great martini and wine. Everything was perfect.
The service is always spectacular- they make you feel great!
Quality of food and service was excellent. Menu affords plenty of options.
Food was best ever, service was absolutely outstanding. Made a special evening for my date and myself Thank you
We love Mitchell's for special occasions. Always great food and service!
The scallops I had were absolutely delicious, and the service was outstanding.
We like love fish and have been dining here for years. The service is always excellent and Saturday was no exception. Our server, Lauren, could not have tried harder to make our evening, my husband’s Birthday, special.
The swordfish was a huge disappointment . When I first saw the plate , I thought it had a slice of turkey on it; was so thin. He frequently orders swordfish when we go out; has had it at Mitchell’s before, and I’ve never seen a piece that looked like that.
The manager, who is very nice , came to our table to give us our receipt from their generous loyalty program & when he asked about the food we told him we were disappointed in the swordfish, and he explained that if the loin is large, the serving will be thin. I don’t dispute his statement, but I repeat, I’ve never seen anything like it and my husband did not enjoy it.
Had to wait 20 minutes to be seated with a reservation. There were several empty tables in sight when we arrived and it took that long to get seated. There were also two other couples who had to wait with reservations.
Waiter was good but we had to wait another 15 minutes after our sale/soup for the main course to arrive. The food quality was average.
Waiter was excellent! Food was very good, the atmosphere was excellent. Very friendly environment, other waiters stop by to see if we needed assistance. One waiter had the same first and last name as I do. My experience was excellent.
I made our reservation a week before our dinner. I requested a booth in the bar, but I was unaware that the booths were on a first come, first serve basis. So when we arrived there were no booths available in either dining room or the bar. The hostess politely explained that she would have a booth for us in 15 minutes… however we were on a time constraint. (Another reason why I made a reservation). So she was able to seat us promptly BUT we were seated at probably the worst table in the entire restaurant. It was at the intersection of the only walkway through the restaurant and the opening to the kitchen. Our view was the staff’s sink and kitchen utensils plus we were serenaded by the clanging and banging of pots and plates from the kitchen. Very disappointing! Our waiter was very good and we enjoyed our meals. But the ambiance- terrible!! Not sure making a reservation made a difference! :-(
Food was cold and unseasoned. Manager was all excuses when issues were brought to their attention. They did comp the food, however, most of food was rather disappointing for the price.
Service was a little slow Saturday night, but they were quite busy so I can understand that. Food was delicious as always.
Very slow getting meal. Very few visits other than taking order, delivering food, and delivering check
Our daughter treated us to dinner after we helped her pay off a big student loan debt. She was very appreciative and took us to one of our favorite places. We’ll be back!
