Best Fish & Chips
When I am in the mood for fish & chips the only place in the area that I visit is City Fish Market. The food is cooked to order so it crispy and not greasy. They have weekly specials with prices that cannot be beat.
The hubby brought me one week day as a surprise dinner. I was in heaven. I will definitely be back for my local fried fish fix. It wasn\'t packed whatsoever, so we ordered and received our food quickly. I enjoyed that the fresh fish were kept in large, open containers filled with constant moving water. It ensured me that the fish I was eating was fresh.
We ordered fish and chips for me, and fried oysters for my husband. There was also a side where you could get fresh fish to cook at home. Our entrees were served in a box, piping hot still when we opened and ate it at home. Served with tartar sauce, salt, and pepper.
Passed my expectations for sure
You have to love this place more for its vast selection of seafood items. I picked up a 1/2 pound of Norwegian salmon the likes of which was beyond anything I had experienced before. The salmon was from Norway's Faroe islands known for harvesting extraordinary salmon quality and it surely did not disappoint. After one bite you will know and taste the remarkable difference. If you are looking for a treat and are a salmon lover this should be high on your list to try.
My Go-To Seafood Store
This is my goto place for fresh seafood, especially if I want some raw oysters or claims. Check the website for specials and use their coupons. Like I just went in and got oysters for $1 each - awesome and delish!
Whenever I'm here I also grab a pound or two their "ends" which is all the way to the right. It's just chunks of fish that they've trimmed off.
We also go in around the holidays for our Christmas Eve meal - the feast of Seven Fishes!This place will be absolutely packed at like 9am the day before Christmas - good thing you just take a number and it moves quickly.
Don't Miss the Scallop Dinner
They have their scallop dinner for kitchen special. Do it! You'll feel like you're in seafood heaven!
We have never been to the prepped food part of this business (although it always smells good), but we make the 45 minute drive down to the retail part about once a month. They always have fresh fish, and other seafood. Great selection too!!! And while it's always a mad house in there, they always are well staffed and the staff are very friendly and helpful!!!
Fresh, Fresh, Seafood. Need i say more.
Look not only do they have fresh seafood at a fare price you can also get something to eat there and have a beer. How great is that ? Lobsta rolls, clam chowder, whole belly clams, fish.. If you've not been you've got to check it out..
Best Clam Chowder in New England!
My local fish market has the best clam chowder! City Fish is a big operation; wholesale & retail fish monger, sit down restaurant and to go market. I've bought everything from salmon and sea scallops to 6 pound lobsters (yes, they are tender). Retail prices are not cheap. So I don't shop there often. Except for the clam chowder.
Their clam chowder is the best. Last week sampled clam chowder at five locations in Boston and southern Maine. City Fish is the best, bar none!
Consistently Good Seafood
City Fish is a staple in the greater Hartford area for excellent seafood. This little restaurant is a comfortable place to eat the quick meal you just bought from the retail store. Nothing fancy, no wait service just you and your quality fish dinner.
Love Fish - Will Travel!
Delicious lobster roll, clam strips, scallops, and shrimp cocktail! Whenever we are visiting family out here, we always have at least one meal at City Fish! And today we can add soft shell crab to that list!
