Amazingly fresh seafood of the highest quality, with friendly expert advice on preparation. Their minuscule lunch counter will satisfy your raw oyster cravings or offer a simple dish. Take-home semi-prepared fish dishes have saved many a hostess. Absolutely the best. You'd have to be at the docks to outdo Monahan's.

“No Better Seafood West of Boston”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Run, don't walk, to Monahan's. They have fish you've probably never even heard of, and most of them are virtually still alive -- and Monahan's even supplies recipes so you know what to do with 'em! Their displays are exquisite, the staff are the kindest, sweetest people in Ann Arbor, and their professionalism is beyond compare. Once you become a "regular," they'll often remember your usual order and call you at home if one of your piscine favorites arrives (you've gotta give them your phone number, of course). What's more, Mike Monahan and his wife support Ann Arbor community causes in countless ways. Help your heart, save the calories, reduce your cholesterol and enjoy the best seafood you've ever had. All that, and more, at Monahan's.

P.S. Located in Kerrytown, parking is often limited. The Ann Arbor Farmers' Market is in full swing on Wednesday and Saturday mornings, making parking in the area even more difficult. However, the Farmers' Market might be a very good reason to shop there ...

“High Quality”
Reviewed 14 January 2013

The fish is always fresh and there is a diversity of products. It is expensive but to me it is worth it.

“Monahan's is the place for a quick, delicious, and lively lunch.”
Reviewed 7 December 2011

Monahan's Seafood Market is located in Kerry town, Ann Arbor. It is a lively place with three or four markets, four (not fine dining, but good dining) restaurants and numerous clothing, accessories, antiques, teas, etc. The menu is limited to three soups, a variety of fish options, fish tacos and the famous fish sandwich. I have ordered this a dozen times and still just love it!!! Service is very friendly and they make you feel welcome. Always a pleasant place to dine. Five stars for them!
