We dined here for our anniversary. Had only read the reviews and they were spot on! Starting off, the service was excellent! Our waiter answered all of our questions and gave great recommendations. My wife had the crab turnovers and I had the onion rings...More

Rustic decor with excellent fresh fish and seafood. The warm fluffy rolls are addicting, the potatoes au gratin excellent. A bit pricey on some entrees, but the fresh fish is flown in daily and preparation is spot on. Good service.

The location is easy access, but the other close-situated buildings make it easy to miss. If you're craving fish, they're wonderful. I've never ordered steak here, but I know people who do if they prefer meat that day. The seafood menu selection is pretty extensive,...More

The Fish House has long been my family's go-to place for seafood. I took my parents there recently for a birthday celebration and as always, the service and food was excellent. The lobster bisque is phenomenal. The au gratin potatoes are the best I've ever...More
