We ate at Fishmonger's several times over the past few years. The fish dishes were almost always good; I especially liked the shrimp po' boys. But they closed last week (end of November)--they apparently owed lots of money in back taxes. The sanitation rating also...More

Pleasantly surprised to find a first-rate fish house in Durham NC. Lots of very fresh fish. We had specials from the blackboard. Good sides too. The atmosphere is fun and adds to the charm. It looks like a beach shack complete with picnic tables.

Very decent beet selection, full bar. Pic ice tables type seating with paper table cloths. Wonderful fried green tomatoes. If you can get the smoked bluefish, do it! The best crabs and clams in town!
