The Fish Market has a great relaxed atmosphere. The food was excellent. I recommend the lobster pasta and the grilled scallops. The server was very nice and friendly. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

The food was amazing and the service was great. It was a little pricey, but definitely worth the value. I had the steamed shrimp and broccoli as well as a mixed drink. It was absolutely delicious.

I had heard good things about this restaurant and was excited to try it. We got the shrimp tacos and the fish and chips. Everything was just "ok". Nothing stood out that made me think we need to go back.

Went here for dinner on a busy Saturday night. The restaurant is multiple floors with multiple rooms. Our room was brick-walled and had a mural of the building's history on the wall. The menu was typical of a seafood restaurant. The lobster bisque was fantastic....More

This place has the feel of a North End Boston restaurant: quaint booths, fresh fish and shellfish, and quick service. Nothing fancy here, but there is no need; the food and atmosphere seem authentic.

I went here with a group of 5, everyone got something different and all loved their meals. The restaurant and the surrounding area are very unique. It would take a couple visits to do or try everything in the area.

I don't know if that is available. Judging by the restaurant style and management I strongly suspect that gift certificates are available.

Must be a different place. This restaurant has been one of my mom's favorites since the early 80's when she used to take me there as a child. As far as I know they've always been in Old Town.

Yes, they serve lobster along with crabs also. The mussels and clams are the best.
