We were visiting the Strip, looking for a "New to us" restaurant. We walked into the Penn Ave Fish Co and were not sure what to do. All of a sudden a wonderful worker said, "Come on in! We'll help you!" We received excellent service and outstanding food here!! (For the record, you order at the counter and then go... More

Whenever we are in the Strip District, we stop here for lunch. They have great lunch selections and good portions, mostly fish of course. The area where they prepare the food is often a mess since they fry most of the items, and the prices are so-so, meaning not expensive but not dirt cheap. As for purchasing fish to take... More

I usually go down the street to Wholey's for a fish sandwich, but decided to try the Penn Ave Fish Company for a change. They have a much wider menu with fish, crabcakes, mussels, salmon, and salads in addition to seafood soups and sushi. The atmosphere is better than Wholey's with actual waitresses and restaurant type seating in a warehouse... More

Their TripAdvisor reviews are very good. The menu on their web site is very enticing. That made us decide to go to Penn Avenue Fish Market for sushi happy hour as they list in their web site. However, when we arrived at their Strip District store and asked about the Happy Hour menu, they said that it was at the... More

The place is also a fish market, and smells a bit as such. Order at the counter, and pay at the counter on your way out, try to remember what you had. Fresh ingredients and lots of choices. The only thing missing was proximity to a wharf and the fishing boats. Casual and lunch friendly.

I had a very basic English Cod. But it was prepared very well and had great flavor! All of my co workers enjoyed their entrees also. My only complaint is the ordering and pay method. It's disorganized and probably turns off new comers. When you come in the 2 sides of the restaurant almost seem like 2 different places. You... More

This is one of our favorite spots in the Strip District and we return frequently. Environment is casual and laid-back, nothing fancy, but comfortable. Order at the small counter in front and food is brought to your table. Well-stocked, clean bathroom. Service is friendly and prompt. Food never disappoints. Have lunch and visit fresh seafood shop in the back of... More
