We started going here back in the mid-80s. It was always a favorite of ours but the long wait times, no reservations and rising prices got old and we stopped going. We had lunch today and it was wonderful. The interior is beautiful. The service and food was great.

We hadn't been to the Fish Company in years as I moved to Vegas. The food is better than I remembered; the warm sour dough bread with REAL butter makes you want to overeat; and the cabernet sauvignon prices were surprisingly reasonable! My husband and I enjoy a nice bottle of Cab with our dinner and we know restaurant prices.... More

Great place for seafood. I'm from New England and the Fish Company has the closest New England Clam Chowder. Great place to meet fir drinks also.

First time here with friends from California. The service was exceptional, the food was great. Fish was fresh, the sourdough buns were some of the best we have had. A tad bit expensive but we totally enjoyed the meal.

Went for dinner and then return the next day to have lunch since it was so good! Yes there may be a line but they were cute through fast. The food is as good as Hillclimb for the price. This is definitely a must if you're in the area!

Their acclaim to fame is their clam chowder. I did not have it but friends said it was wonderful. I thought it was overpriced for their lunch specials. Over $30 for a lunch special is a bit much. But the food was great.

What a shame that a lovely meal was spoilt by such poor service. Our table of 5 was sat down, fed and watered in exactly an hour. In their rush to serve us the soups (delicious) were presented within moments of our order and our main meals were served while one of our party was still finishing his soup. The... More

The Trout is the hidden gem. Grilled is perfect with your two sides $20.00.... The asparagus and sweet potato where my two sides. The clam chowder is always good.

I am not fan of clam chowder but this is the one I like and love to eat. And at this restaurant you can have it together with your meal, because all entrees include salad or soup (which includes the clam chowder) and two sides. You pay around $20.00 a fish and this was enough to eat and take home... More

Clam chowder at its best! Very Yummy. Smoked albacore....huge plate with cheese, crackers, and veges. Lobster steamed to perfection. Lovely grilled vegetables...The halibut was perfectly grilled and very tasty. All washed down with a glass of crisp prosecco. So worth a visit. It's a great restaurant.
