I've previously noticed Top Choice Fish while entering Tip Top Meats, but I haven't tried it until today at lunchtime. My wife and I split an order of their fish and chips and we each had a cup of their New England Clam Chowder. Obviously,...More

We have been here before with much better results We had the fish and chips and the entree salmon salad. Service was excellent. Ambiance is nonexistent. Better to get your food to go so you don’t have to sit at a “community table “ with...More

Top Choice is both a fresh seafood market and seafood eatery; if you care to, can choose your fish from the fresh cases or a lobster from the tank. Seating is limited and somewhat communal, and dress warmly if visiting in cool weather; couple tables...More

We greatly enjoyed Top Choice Fish. My wife had a gluten free Fish Taco plate, my son had a Shrimp PoBoy and I had their Fish 'N Chips... All dishes were very good, plentiful and fairly priced. We shall return!
