Excellent fried seafood!!
If you are an fan of fried seafood this place rocks! They have a takeout counter where you can get to go or to eat in an adjoining dining room. I suggest the latter since fried seafood is best eaten piping hot. Of note are fried oysters and fried whole belly clams. Of course fish & chips along with fried shrimp, scallops,calamari and clam strips (rubber bands) are available if you prefer, or even burgers and hot dogs (but why bother?) I am told their "secret" to good fried seafood is changing the oil frequently, and it sure works. The adjacent market has an abundant offering of fresh seafood which is moderately priced. City Fish sells to many restaurants, etc. in southern New England so you know it is quality. I would bet much of the seafood you eat at your favorite shoreline restaurant overlooking the sound comes from here. 🙂
I've been to both the wholesale and the dining sections of this business. The wholesale can get really busy but the people who work there take their time in helping you get what you want.Though expensive, they offer SO much more than any other market, even Stew Leonard's.I got a whole salmon carcass to make fish soup!Where else can you get something like that in the area!
I got fish and chips to go with a side of slaw.I work about 15-20 minutes away and I even opened the box so that it wouldn't get soggy.The food was still warm when I got to my desk!The portion is huge, but I do wish they seasoned the batter for the fish a little.The ketchup and tartar sauce they provide is just enough for the whole box.I was leery about taking fried food to go but it wasn't over oily when I sat down to eat like some places can be.Recommend!
It does not get FRESHER then CITY FISH
I ONLY buy Alaskan King Crab legs at CITY FISH.
I ONLY buy STEAMERS from CITY FISH.
WeALWAYS buy holiday cooked shrimp from CITY FISH, because it's never mushy, the lines move so fast, and....
It does not get FRESHER then CITY FISH~
Best TAKE-OUT specials ever!
Love whole belly clams, your chowder and your FISH & CHIPS!
I come here often for lunch takeout. They are very quick in taking your order and cooking it up fast. I'd say less than 10 minutes and I can be on my way. The fish is fresh and I love the belly clams too. The meals come with delicious fries too. If you want to eat it there, there is a large dining room too. This is the only place I get my fish and chips. No other places can compare.
Enjoyed the taste
I've always loved this place since a kid, my dad worked here!! My family from Florida also enjoyed the taste so much, there has to come multiple times before leavening the state.
Would not trade this market
I've been buying fish shrimp and clams from cityfish market for years and would not trade this market for all the tea in China, and their fried food is the reason I go to buy my lunch better fish than eating Ronald McDonald food.
Great fish, excellent service!
Best fresh fish to take home!
I haven't eaten in at City Fish, but the market is amazing! The fish is extremely fresh, and at really great prices. The staff are very knowledgeable and are happy to suggest something based on taste preferences, price range, or whatever you're looking for!

I travel from Enfield CT to City Fish when I want something special.
