We had a large group and in the effort to bring all of our food at once; some of it was cold. The server replaced it however. Bring it while it's hot. I ordered the carrot cake to go and it was stale when I got home to share it.

To be frank, our meal did not seem to flow naturally in the slightest. While dining we felt slightly interrupted each time our waitress came to the table. She overly explained what very simple things were, and she ran on when we tried to politely suggest we understood what we were ordering.

For example: she let me know what a shrimp cocktail dish would entail and to follow; how most people mix up an Ahi Tuna bowl to eat it...*awkward pause* Yes. We are aware...thank you...?

Outside of this, each time she visited we felt the need to ask for things that, to be honest, should have been anticipated needs a server sees no matter which restaurant it is.

Our meal took much longer than it should have, and we were very specific about when we would order entrees so as not to stay past close. Unfortunately, that timeline was blown when: the soups were brought incorrectly, we did not get to order when they were delivered, and when we many menu items were unavailable after waiting to order them.

If you have 86’d oysters at a “Fish Market” you might want to say something. If you don’t have a dessert, you shouldn’t offer it. Pretty simple stuff.

I was certainly pleased with the Birthday wishes that were given to my dear friend, but I was not impressed with the service in any respect. As a former fine dining manager, the experience was embarrassing and mediocre at best.

Disappointed.

Food was good on Thanksgiving but the server was not focused. A couple of oversights is acceptable but here are six the server made: She thought I had ordered when only 3 people at our table had ordered. She brought potatoes as my side instead of beans I had ordered. She asked if we wanted to see a dessert menu when we had already ordered dessert which was part of our three-course meal. She added tea on my bill when my wife and I only had water. We were finished and paying and the same server began to serve us a meal as if we had just ordered. She realized her mistake but then did it again with the next plate.

Actually unimpressed. Restaurant was a little dirty, especially the drink menu & dinner menu. My husbands wine 🍷 had cork in it, a lot.
Food was ok, but I ordered blackened salmon & I ended up taking it home to my dogs since it was not necessarily blackened. My Super Salad was great. I do not normally give negative review but truly for $113 it was more like a $30 dinner for 2

On November 8, 2019, we contracted Mitchell Fish Market’s private room for my family (10). We were told we would have a server dedicated to our private room.
Disappointed Issues:
1) the server was not checking in on the family regularly because the manager had her working both our room and the regular patrons outside the restaurant. She was so busy that I personally had to regularly gather appetizer dishes.
2) did not have someone regularly checking on drink refills.
3)waited a long time for food. Several of the dinners were cold and mushy.
3) one family member did not get her dinner order at all and had to reorder when the others received their dinners!
4) again after eating dinner, I was gathering the dirty dishes out of the front of my family!

My husband and I were so disappointed with the coordination of the server and how she was working both our room and other patrons in the restaurant! It was our understanding when signing the contract that the server would be taking care of us only!

Our total bill was $1,200 and the only thing good about the evening is the privacy of our room! Disappointed disappointed disappointed!

Always wonderful, had been here two weeks ago and noticed the $25 full meal deal for early bird diners and tried it tonight. We tried most of the offerings at our table. Everyone was very pleased. Drinks (not part of the deal but very nicely done by the bartender) & dinners were enjoyed by all.

Disappointed in service and good quality. Lengthy waits for requests of bread and beverages. Shrimp and scallops rubbery/overcooked. Manager did bring more that were better.

Always a great time! The flounder stuffed with crab is delightful. Hubby loved the Fisherman's Platter. Mom had broiled scallops and Dad also had the flounder stuffed with crabmeat. The staff is so attentive and always make us feel welcome. Thanks for making my Dad's birthday so special!!

We had made reservations through open table and were seated right away. The restaurant was not full however and there were plenty of open seating. We were greeted by Travis, our server, who told us he was getting an order from another table and he would be right with us. Two of the party members ordered surf and turf which included a 6 oz. filet and we were told that they were out of 6 oz. filets and that we would have to choose something else or purchase a bigger steak. With those options, we elected to purchase a bigger steak however we feel that since they were out of 6 oz. filets we should’ve been given the 8 oz. at the 6 oz. price. I ordered my filet medium, it was well-done when it came to the table. We did not enjoy our dinner experience at Mitchell Fish Market and will not be returning there.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal and we're very impressed with the executive chef. One of us (party of 4) ordered an 8oz filet and it seemed a bit small when presented. Unbeknownst to us, the EC reviewed the order and presented us with an 8oz filet mid-meal saying he noticed we had received a 6oz in error. We were impressed and thanked him profusely. Both filets were perfectly prepared medium rare as we're the other meals as well. Thank you Mitchell's, EC, and team.

We ordered lobster tails at $35. They were not cooked and the restaurant was out of lemons. The dish and side were lukewarm. At the price charged, we should have had hot food and a serving of sides that was adequate. Not a couple of forkfuls. Poor value for the money. We are frequent customers and were very disappointed.

Restaurant was not crowded and the service was fine. My clam chowder was great, hot and creamy. My scallops were fine but my veggie sides were cold, told the waitress but got no response did not know if she heard me and she was waiting on a table of ten so..... it will be awhile before I come back.

The food is excellent, with a good array of seafood. An area for improvement would be service. Wait times are longer for this level of restaurant. We had to wait for bread and my water cup was empty three separate times. Maybe having servers watching for bread and drinks could be a start.
The ambience and food was good.

As always, the food was excellent and the service outstanding. There was a slight mix-up on a side order selection, but the manager was very accommodating in making it right. Would definitely recommend Mitchell's Fish Market.
