As someone who loves good Japanese food, this was average or less. The only restaurant I liked in this town before has closed, so I gave Crystal Fish a try. I noticed the sushi chefs look Mexican and certainly not Japanese. I guess that explains the shell in the oysters, which a Japanese chef would never do. All 6 had shell. Also, the hot sauce (sriracha I guess) overpowered the oysters, so I couldn't taste them. I am used to Japanese chefs putting wasabi on if they think it should be there, but here I didn't see any. The ikura were fine, but sparse and the nori was soggy, even though "freshly" made. The menu was ⅔ rolls - mostly specialty rolls (i.e. not typical Japanese rolls). They did have nigiri and sashimi but not too many other typical Japanese appetizers or main plates, which I missed. We asked for clear soup (none) and then miso soup. It was on the bill but they never brought it. Service was friendly but only fair to spotty. They didn't have most of the sakes on the list. The shoyu was an odd watery consistency as if watered down. All that being said, the atmosphere was fine. Still, there is no reason for me to go back except that if there is nothing else in town, I would probably do it.
