I visited this place for the first and last time with my spouse. We love seafood and were excited to try something new. The place was very cramped and the decor was so tacky. Christmas lights and seashells was the theme. The table next to us asked our server to find their server because they needed a water refill. Our... More

The clam chowder is the best outside of Boston that I tasted, creamy, claims and potatoes the right mixture. I had their fish sandwich on a croissant yummy.

Fish (fried grouper special) was good and so was slaw. Fries were cold and hush puppies tiny and burnt. Definitely overpriced for what I got ($16.95). Wife got big fish sandwich. It wasn't bad and the crab bisque was pretty good. They served our daughters hot dog cold (seriously, how hard is it to microwave a hot dog). Saw them... More

Overpriced! Fried old seafood with no taste! Manager assured me that the food would be "the best!" What a rip off!

We followed the TA directions to this place but the address shown was incorrect. It is indeed located at the Capital Market, which is in the old train station building at Capitol & Smith Streets in downtown Charleston (exit 100 from Interstate 77/64). The woman at the Tourist Info desk, next to Fresh Seafood, said she would try to correct... More

This place is awesome! It's a small seafood stand inside the classic Capital Market, an old warehouse market full of different shops and eateries. You can buy fresh seafood or have a sit down meal. They have a huge variety of seafood to choose from including chowder and other things. I usually keep it simple with the fish and fries... More

Delicious fresh Alaskan Cod and shrimp makes an amazing meal. All-you-can-eat cod and shrimp at a more-than-reasonable price makes this a great place for lunch or dinner. The once seafood market has been renovated to include dinning and overlooking the Kanawha River makes for an interesting and delicious place for dinner.
