I took a friend out to dinner for her Birthday she had never been there before, she loved it. They have a large selection of fish, shell fish, salads, soups, state, pasta etc all excellent. The service is also excellent however you may have to wait to get a table depending on when you go. Give it a try.

Based on the reviews, I fully expected to like this place. It was quite busy on a Wednesday night so that was promising. We ordered the Clam Chowder, based on the reviews, and couldn't disagree more: it was thick, gluey, lacked flavor and finding any clams was futile. I ordered the Caesar salad and it was the worst I've ever... More

My first time here and without question I will be back! They boast serving only the freshest quality seafood and one look at fresh fish for sale in their market and you can see how fresh the fish is. I came with a group of three during lunchtime and they are moderately busy during lunch. Unfortunately, the two others in... More

A first time visit to a place that obviously had a lot of tradition. We arrived just in time for opening for lunch and the place quickly filled up. With a blend of regulars and newbies. Our server treated us like we were regulars. I'm told this place got a recent face lift and the decorations definitely give this place... More

If you're looking for a quiet place to dine and share the thoughts of the day, "this is not the place". Luckily we arrived at 4:00 PM and were pretty much seated immediately. By the time we completed our dinner we had to fight our way out the door there were so many people waiting to dine. Our server was... More

We started going here back in the mid-80s. It was always a favorite of ours but the long wait times, no reservations and rising prices got old and we stopped going. We had lunch today and it was wonderful. The interior is beautiful. The service and food was great.

We hadn't been to the Fish Company in years as I moved to Vegas. The food is better than I remembered; the warm sour dough bread with REAL butter makes you want to overeat; and the cabernet sauvignon prices were surprisingly reasonable! My husband and I enjoy a nice bottle of Cab with our dinner and we know restaurant prices.... More

First time here with friends from California. The service was exceptional, the food was great. Fish was fresh, the sourdough buns were some of the best we have had. A tad bit expensive but we totally enjoyed the meal.

Went for dinner and then return the next day to have lunch since it was so good! Yes there may be a line but they were cute through fast. The food is as good as Hillclimb for the price. This is definitely a must if you're in the area!
