We had an Oyster Po Boy that was as good as the one we had in New Orleans. They might only serve them on Saturdays at lunch. I wish they had more seating.

It's just a counter with a little extra seating, so don't come for the decor or the atmosphere. The fish is fresh and the folks behind the counter know how to cook fish properly. I've never had a bad or badly-cooked piece of fish --...More

If you want the best fresh fish ever....Monahan's is the place to go. Great selections and it's in a great location. You can get an entire dinner to fix right there in Kerrytown without having to travel anywhere else.

Monahan's has been in business for over 37 years. Lunch is served 11-3 Mon-Sat. Not only do we have a bountiful case of fresh seafood daily, we fillet whole fish in store. We have an ever-expanding file of recipes in the store and here on our site. We also offer a full complement of made-to-order, easy-to-heat take-home gourmet meals. And if you come by our store at lunchtime, we'll happily serve you the daily special, something from our menu or cook to order any item in our case.
