Our first time here and we loved it and will be back Thursday was oyster day we had the Prince Edward Island oysters and ended up ordering an extra order after the first. Had hurricanes to drink 🍹 and ordered the crabbie patties, the fish sliders, and the calimari lemon combo. They where fantastic tasting. We will be back.

Came here with friends. It's a small place with only three booths for 4 each. We had 5 and he sat on a stool. There is lots more bar seating. The menu is purely fish and not huge. I had blackened grouper and shrimp poppers. The others had calamari and oysters. And their main courses were octopus. These are all... More

Came on a recommendation and had some great fish tacos and some blackened catfish. They served us quickly and were very friendly, and the gumbo wasn't half bad either.

This is a fun, little spot for a date or small groups, with a patio during the warmer months. Amazing oysters and some yummy entree selections. Rotating beer options and well made cocktails. Friendly staff. I've visited a few times and always had a great experience.

Casual and comfortable for a first-meeting. Modestly priced and some items shareable. Good enough food, not all that memorable.

We went to Fish Bar for dinner after an afternoon Cubs game when we were in Chicago. We actually wanted to go to DMK burgers next door but they were closed for renovations and we were starving so we stopped at Fish Bar. The oysters were great and everyone raved about their chicken, crab and other sandwiches. The salad with... More

This restaurant is not the cheapest place in town, but the seafood is so fresh, delicious. Tastes like it was just caught. The hush puppies are pure heaven. The lemon rings are also delicious.

We found this seafood restaurant in the lincoln park area. Its very close to the train station. We were given the outdoor area as the weather was beautiful and we had a stroller. We ordered crabby patty and some pan fried red snapper dish (i still can't forget the taste of this one). Absolutely fabulous. Their lemonade was fresh with... More

First visit. It was OK. Interesting concept. Gumbo was the best of our courses. Waiter described the Sunset Beach oysters as small-medium. They were medium-large. OK, but we prefer the smaller northwest oysters. The hush puppies are pretty oily. The kale salad no better than the packaged salads from a grocery store. Friendly service. We'll try it one more time.
