Lori and I had dinner here on 5/19/17. Our meals were spectacular - and the server shift supervisor sort of 'saved the day' by waiting on us personally. While we were eating, about half of the servers seemed to be brand new and totally lost....More

Not sure what happened but the service was very slow and we had to repeatedly request more water, coffee, etc. The main entrees were good and fairly priced. The oysters on the half shell were big, plumb and flavorful.

We eat dinner here several times a year and enjoy bringing friends or family who are visiting. The food is very good, as is the service. Definitely recommend The Fish House.

A linguine special with artichoke hearts, scallops, shrimp, clams, mussels, was just splendid. So was a swordfish medallion in cream sauce special. Nothing terrible fancy, but good honest seafood without a lot of pretension. Just a minute outside the edge of town.
