Unfortunately, they have reduced the serving size of their seafood stew from 10 oz to 8 oz and raised the price by $2. No longer a great bargain. Too bad. But, the mussels are still good.

Great seafood with fresh oysters and fish. Excellent Calamari and oysters made any way you want. Had local half shells and the linguini in cream sauce with fresh crab. Very tasty! Nice place and medium price for the area. Great bars & shopping all around

We are locals and used to eat there with the kids once a week. Sorry I refuse to pay those prices for pasta even if the fish on top is good. In the last 10years the amount has been reduced while the prices go up.

We enjoyed the Fish Market restaurant for lunch. The food was very good and we liked the menu. I had the clam chowder and loved it. My wife had a blackened fish sandwich which also was very good. Bruce B

I don't know if that is available. Judging by the restaurant style and management I strongly suspect that gift certificates are available.

Must be a different place. This restaurant has been one of my mom's favorites since the early 80's when she used to take me there as a child. As far as I know they've always been in Old Town.

Yes, they serve lobster along with crabs also. The mussels and clams are the best.
