Have always had a great service and food, our server, KAGE, is a pro. The only negative point is I have tried the swordfish twice, not to liking
Great prices for the big portions. Great service
Seafood is not fresh and it was very pricey for frozen seafood and the manager did not accommodate me when I complained. 54.00 it’s a lot of money for dried out crabs legs. If you want crab legs go to the Chinese buffet it’s a lot cheaper.
The fried calamari was good. The stuffed shrimp were not very appetizing. The clam chowder soup was too thick and not warm enough. The atmosphere of the place is ok.
Steamers were amazing today.. Fried scallops cooked perfectly, lobster always top shelf... Place is a bit pricey but well worth a visit because you get what you pay for.. BTW, pours are generous and service is friendly and efficient... One of our favorites..
Great locale place. Super friendly staff and fresh fish. Lobster roll sliders at lunch were excellent - nice portion size, good price.
The whole belly clams, lobster roll, jumbo were AMAZING! And the service provided by Norm was awesome too.
Great seafood and local craft beer. Lobster bisque is top notch. Their scallops were a real winner of a dish. Can't wait to go back and try some of their fried dishes too!
Swordfish is a great deal. Market price is reasonable. Tasty appetizers and higher-end food. Really good. Very busy. Allow an extra 5-10 minutes for takeout orders.
Good seafood. Great service.
So I went here for the first time with my husband tonight. Didnt think to make reservations and when we pulled up the place was PACKED. oddly enough we were still seated right away, and were assigned a waitress immediately. The appetizers came out in less than 10 minutes and were delicious. The only thing I was not a fan of was how stressed the waitresses were and seemed to have been having a tough time with the busyness factor. Even how stressed they were our waitress was pretty awesome. Polite, quick, and attentive with my refills. Once again 5 stars goes to them. Not a fan of them running like chickens with their heads cut off but who knows maybe people called out, or they're under staffed. Whatever it was they did a great job pulling through.
Interesting restaurant. Wide and varied menu with plenty of drink options. Good selection of seafood, including lobster, calamari, oysters, shrimp, white fish and scallops. Few other dishes available to please all appetites. Great service, even when busy. Definitely recommended!
Good seafood meals comfortable atmosphere.
I still support. But years ago o feel it was better
There are a lot of seafood joints I have visited just like this one. You really need something to separate yourself from the masses. Couldn't find that spark here. Service was fine, food was par, restaurant appeared to be clean. If you expecting great seafood, you might be disappointed. If your looking for pub style seafood, your right on track. Our dinners included calimari, chowder, streamers and fried Haddock. Everything was fine, but average, thus the 3 stars.
I honestly cant speak highly enough of this place! More photos to follow the next time I come but in the meantime that was the broiled shrimp dinner with a cajun spice in the photo. From the staff, to the food, to the atmosphere everything was spot on. This was my first time here and definitely wont be my last! I have driven by for years never knowing what I was missing by not stopping in. The seafood was delish! They have a huge menu, great beers on tap as well as good choices for wine. Huge bar and a ton of regular seating. Check it out!
Awesome place. Our waitress was absolutely fantastic. The food was beyond delicious. I wish I could afford to eat here every weekend. Loved it.
The service was very slow. Ots hard to say if it was due to problems in the kitchen or what, but we had no way to locate our waitress or even staff close enough to enlist assistance from long enough that we realized it was past the point we had estimated we'd be in the car on the way home. The clam chowder, both clear and creamy were awful. We had mixed experience with entrees, ranging from average to low average. Meh
Excellent, above my greatest expectations. Very nice
I'm not sure if I simply came on a bad night or if the surf and turf is just not the dish to get. The steak was mediocre, but then again it is a seafood place. The lobster was also ok, maybe a bit bland. The server forgot the nut crackers at first. And also got the order of one of my coworker's order wrong, which happens, but the attitude he took was "that's not what you ordered" when the rest of us clearly heard his order. The meals the rest of my party ordered looked delicious, and not one had any complaints (even the incorrect salmon dish apparently was great). So I'll give it another shot some time down the road.
Friday seafood will never be the same!!! Excellent service combination with the biggest fishermens platter will turn your dining experience into a divine eating. Moment.The food was served quickly,Hot and abundant.With ice cold Tap Beer !!! Delicious food and clam chowder,NEW ENGLAND OF course,was to die for!!! I saw the Biggest lobster ever!! Enjoyed this place and can't wait to share with friends and family. Six star restaurant!!
Always have a great meal! The Fried Sea Scallops are the best!
We live in Colorado and came to New England to visit family. This place is close to the airport and easy to get to. The food and service was great. We feasted on oysters, whole lobster and crab legs. Highly reccomend.
Very good food! Food is fresh and tasty! One of my favorite places.
The food is awesome as well as the service. Kudos to Norm our waiter.
I love Maine fish. They need to start cleaning up their dining room.
The service was good. And the food was well prepared.
the portion sizes are tremendous! you won't leave hungry!
You get a lot of food for the price. It was also good food. Would go again.
Great environment,great food(especially pizza n grinders) lots of choices, beer,wine etc...
Awesome place. Clams casino and steamers were great. Sides were amazing too. Fried belly clams not quite there. More used to a lighter crispy type breading. Maybe it was not a good time of year for them. Good portion but clams very small and served at a tepid temp, almost like they were prepared like fries in a huge batch and portions scooped out? Once again, we might have gotten a bad batch.
I was a little underwhelmed with the 2 appetizers we got, but the main course was good. The waitress was very pushy when taking our order and missed delivering our drinks. Overall it was an OK experience, but the food was good. Recommend the broiled scallops. :)
Amazing huge lobsters fresh and sweet amazing amazing amazing 10/10 first time today was not dissapointed will def come back
Waiter was great I had a great time and experience. Definitely will be back when I'm around the area.
Interesting waiter, courteous and funny! Food was good, not exceptional. Fresh beets nice. Roasted potatoes greasy mushy.
Since they expanded their bar area a few years ago, it is really a wonderful place to go for seafood. They have an excellent raw bar too. This place is extremely popular though so be prepared to wait or look to go during sometime other than the peak times which are around 5-7 most nights.
Great food! Excellent service. Like always. I have always been happy with everything on the menu. This is a 6 fork establishment !!!!!!
Always good food. Great place for seafood lovers.
This is a local favorite. I like the calm ambiance, making it a great place for eating with friends while catching-up. Maine Fish has good seafood and good service. They recently did some remodeling, the outcome made the place that much better (especially the bar; they now have 4 television that are tuned-in to sports). As for hours, I go between Monday and Friday around opening hour. And since I can't comment on nighttime and weekend hours, I have been told that they are busy.
Simply deliciously prepared seafood served in intimate and alive environment. Fresh, hot, seafood served by very enthusiastic wait staff. Go there and enjoy!
Food used to be really good. I got fish and chips. Mostly french fries. The fish is Pollock which I love but there fillets we're very thin like whiting. I won't eat there again. No fisherman's platter that's what I usually get.
I went to Maine Seafood once a few years ago and although the food was really good, the restaurant was kinda old and outdated. I heard they remodeled so my husband and I along with a few friends decided to give it a try. What a difference a face lift made. The new bar area is bright and beautiful. The food was beyond amazing, and the bill was acceptable to what we ordered. Our waitress was a delight as well. We will be back again when I get another craving for lobster
I never knew this place was here until my friend told me about it. The food is quite good. Sometimes there's a little bit of a wait to get in on weekends or Thursday nights. But I really enjoy it. You can get large quantities of fish to take home as well. Definitely a good place and I will be back
Loved it. Good old family restaurant where you still get to pick 2 sides w your order and fantastic prices. Our server, Trina, was super awesome and we loved her. The only thing holding them from 5 star review is that much of the fish was farmed. Great soup (homemade), warm bread, and crisp green salads. Yay!
Phenomenal food and huge portions, our favourite seafood restaurant hands down
Awesome draft list and lobster rolls
My absolute favorite restaurant in CT! They have such great food, great service and a cozy atmosphere. Highly recommended it!
Good seafood! Enjoyed it and have been bavk many times!
Quick service, staff friendly. Meal nicely prepared (not overcooked) great flavor. The food cooked always seems to be as fresh as if I had just did the catch my self. Reasonably priced. Friday nights can be very busy, the back part of the restaurant can get to be noisy.
Bought a bucket of fish last evening for dinner, fries were so soggy we didn’t want to eat them, fish was so over cooked it tasted awful and the bread was so hard you couldn’t break it to eat. $37.00 down the drain.
Fresh Fish prepared and served hot. Presentation was well done and the deep sea scallop luncheon was delicious, as was the Oyster luncheon . The service was quick and most efficient. A fine experience.
Great food...outstanding service - Peter Vamvilis!!! Thank you for making our night fantastic!
Love this place. Scallops are AWESOME. : )
The best seafood lunch ever!
Food was awesome and fresh . my yearly visit with Auntie Sandra !
I'm still full a day later. Portions were huge, food was great. Service was on point. Was recommended by many in the area and were glad we went. The seafood salad was the best I've ever had!
Decent tap list featuring a dozen or more local brews. Friendly, efficient service. Attractive, spacious, good for groups.
Had a great time food was great. 1.25 pound lobster with clam chowder and 2 sides 24.99. The chowder was very good with almost no potato filling just good stuff. The raw clams are heavenly, big and meaty.
This is my only seafood restaurant. I live in Branford Ct. I will travel past Hartford to eat @ this restaurant. I tell all my friends they have not experienced good food until they visited this restaurant and for the price it is worth it You must sit in the area across from the bar.
Was the worst seafood platter give us bay scallops instead of sea scallops very greasy service not good portions SMALL EXPENSIVE
Great food and a wonderful place for fish dinners.
Very nice environment great food
Wow! Best seafood around for all seafood lovers. Reasonable priced. Great atmosphere too
The food was great but the service was very disappointing. Dirty dishes left on the table and rushed through the meal.
A bit pricey but worth every penny
Was good but how was this place running out of menu items fourth of July weekend
Food was excellent, wait staff was Mediocre. Had the 2lbs of steamers. First I complemented him on how delicious they were, then stated there were several that did not open. His comment "You can't win them all" so we usually are very generous with our tips but we shortened the tip considerably, because he was right you can't win them all.
Excellent seafood selection, good sized portion & reasonable price
Not sure where they get the seafood, but when I used to take visitors here, most of the plates were not cleaned off. It is average and somewhat suspect with the freshness of the food. I think some of the food is old. Prove me wrong.
Food was delish, had the cod fish dinner and portion size okay!! Go & Enjoy
Good food. Chower is great. Lobster outstanding.
This place was amazing. Expensive, but AMAZING!! By the way, its seafood so I expected the prices to be high. My wife and I enjoyed an anniversary dinner here recently and we highly recommend. I had the lazyman lobster with the 10 oz. steak which was great. My wife had, probably the most stuffed lobster I have ever seen. This place is now one of our top 5 restaurants in the area. We will return.
The food was excellent. Their practices are something to be desired. They do not take the customer into account.
Food was delicious and portions were generous service was awesome definitely going back
Loved it! Food was amazing
Everything was really good. The baked potatoes should have come with more butter and some seasoning.
I had the Broiled Seafood Casserole and it was delicious!!! My husband had the Baked Stuffed Sole and he enjoyed that!! We will most likely go back again.
Amazing food, so delicious and HUGE portions. Great ambiance and incredible staff. An amazing lunch out. Enormous seafood platter, couldn't even eat half of it. Good seafood salad on the side. Can't go wrong here.
Great food and very good service
I personally don't care for seafood, so I always order the Ribeye steak. Very large piece of steak, French fries, pasta salad, a lovely garden salad, and fresh baked bread with butter. All delicious. Our server was Katrina, who always does a spectacular job.
We usually visit at least every 2 Weeks...Maine Fish is my Absolute FAVORITE Restaurant...I rarely go any place else....Food is Delicious and the Wait staff are AMAZING...Highly Recommended!
Outstanding customer service and staff is friendly, which was really important to us at the time. We had been traveling all day from the West Coast and we ALL were very hungry!! We love our clam chowder and were not disappointed! Our waitress was on the ball, attentive, friendly and super fun! Thanks for making us feel welcome!
Lots of food for the price, great atmosphere and wait staff. It is one of our favorite places for a special night out. I always order from the lighter side menu because their portions a very generous.
Great food. Big portions. Good atmosphere. Fair price for what you get.
Excellent venue, food and service...Loved it
The food is incredible. The lazy man lobster is a favorite. Our server, Norm was so awesome! We had a huge party and he was such a great server. Can't wait to come back to Connecticut, so I can eat here again.
Here from florida visiting family the Food was amazing, had the Demonico steak it was Sooo good. Recommend 110%. Expensive but worth it. They are no small portions.
Great Seafood! Excellent Service!
Food was plentiful, well cooked, and delicious. Service was excellent.
The service was excellent. The oysters were huge and fried perfectly. The whole clams, while good were a little chewier than I've experienced in the past. I would go again and recommend others to go as well.
I was told this was the place for lobster rolls and was NOT disappointed. Even as a takeout item it was delicious. The amount of lobster in that huge roll! Jeez! Am I royalty or something?!!! However the New England clam chowder was a bit like paste. That one needs some work, but the lobster roll!!!!!!! Well. LOBSTA!!!!!
Excellent food and excellent service! Definitely number one on the favourites list.
The food here is amazing. I had the clams casino the stuffed shrimp and some scallops. All were amazing. It was a bit packed like usual, but the service was still great. Drinks were made strong and well. I highly recommend this place!
Service was super-friendly, the menu is huge, and I enjoyed everything I ordered. The steamers were really great -fresh and sweet with no sand; the fries are batter-dipped and have a nice crunch if not a ton of flavor, and the fried scallops were very lightly battered and tender, but they were plated with something very wet (shredded lettuce? Still not sure) that left the bottom side soggy, which was a disappointment. Would definitely return if I'm in the area.
Decent food. Large portions. Fresh food. Atmosphere, menu and music stuck in 1982 time warp.
Love Maine Fish Market. Never have any issues
Food was delicious, most expensive place I've ever eaten at!
Great service best seafood around and the best french fries you've ever had... Even if you don't like fish/ seafood try a burger; cause this is one restaurant you don't want to miss. But it's a busy/ popular place so you might have to wait but just sit at the bar and watch YouTube cause it's worth the wait.
Great food and awesome service .. Love happy hour
You get so much good food for your money. Large menu. Great service, lots of sitting.
Great food choices, and perfectly prepared entree! Also, excellent service.
Great service! Great Food! Highly recommend..
Very good seafood here. Worth a visit.
Was ok but not exceptional.My husband ordered shrimp and scallop special.The onions we're burned the peppers were raw and the forgot the scallops. Rice was bland. I had the stuffed sole with crab and scallop stuffing could not see either the crab or scallops. Staff was cheerful and quick to address concerns but the scallops came out so late we were ready to go.
Went here with friends and they had the lobster rolls omg these things came out and it was a lobster sub! The crab cakes and calamari also was amazing! The prices are great and the quality and quantity of the food is also amazing!!!
Great food reasonably priced. Attentive staff
These people lied regarding food quality. This is the last time I'm coming here. I ended taking the bill because it was my idea to come here. Food had no taste. Crab legs was uncooked. Absolutely. Plate was cracked that we were served on.
Second time here. Clam chowder was outstanding, the lobster ravioli was creamy and amazing, and my grilled salmon and rice pilaf were very flavorful. Waiter could have been a bit more attentive, but still nice service.
The seafood is always good there. Who ever cuts the swordfish needs a sharper eye. Recently went in an the cuts were on a angle. They're tough to cook evenly that way.
Excellant food and service. Atmosphere comfortable. Coming from the North Shore area. Salem and Ipswich ma specifically. It's great to have a local fresh seafood restaurant
The best fish I have had in a long-time. Have to go back.
This place was really great! The food was hot ,fresh and made to order and our waitress was great I would definitely recommend this place and I will love to come back on the next visit.
Food was awesome drinks were good wait staff was excellent!
A very open friendly atmosphere and staff. There was so much great tasting food . Had to request a doggie bag. Suggest if you haven't been there to stop by.
Fantastic food. Worth the trip!
Good service, lobster roll was good.
Expensive but good food and great service!
Always a delicious meal and good service.
Wow! Was so impressed. I had no idea this place existed. The seafood was fresh and delicious. I don't live nearby but I would make the trip again!
Fresh seafood ,generous portions and good service.
Terrible service.... made a reservation for 10 people drove over an hour to get there and they tried to sit us at 2 separate tables. The manager had no other options for us. They have lots of rules themselves when you make a reservation no one in your party can be more than 15 min late or your reservation is cancelled. There is an automatic 18% gratuity. If they are going to have all these rules you need to abide by than they should have better quality service.
Like always it was on point. The food was so good. Thanks to everyone there. Marlon Magic Man Starling !!!
Appetizers, atmosphere, main dish absolutely delicious. Our waiter Brandon was very attentive and friendly. My son and daughter in law took me there for birthday dinner. First time there and will go again for baked stuff shrimp and fried mozzarella
If you want high quality food at reasonable prices, this is the place to go. Best clam chowder I've had in a long time. Love the lighter side menu for smaller portions. Still waddle out full to the brim. One of my favorite places.
Being from Boston and having had the opportunity to shoot some photography in this great state called: #Connecticut We stopped in for a bite. I thought I’ve been to a few seafood restaurants...but this place is right up there. Service: amazing Food: even better. My belly left full and my mind left at ease.
This is is the favorite amoungst all my friends and family. Great food lovely atmosphere.... The staff are friendly and efficient.
been coming here for 20 yrs. renovated, expanded beer menu. Great seafood.
Excellent Service, Food and flights! A must visit!!
Really good food, nice staff. It is a little on the expensive side, but it's fair for what you get.
Amazing! So fresh and great service too
Food was delicious! I'm vegetarian so I had options to choose from. My mother and aunt ordered stuffed shrimp and my grandmother had the fish and chips. Their meals were cooked wonderfully and they absolutely enjoyed their meals. The staff was kind and patient. And other customers in the restaurant were polite and very friendly. I would definitely come here again to treat the family!
Norm was a fantastic waiter made the experience very good. Thoroughly explained the menu for ease of use. Stuffed lobster market special was fantastic would get again. Can't wait to come back. Much better than local competing seafood restaurants
I was disappointed in a takeout order of shrimp cocktail. Did not taste fresh at all. It was a large order so it was a bit embarrassing to serve to a large crowd.
Popular place with a wide variety of very tasty and fresh seafood. Homemade salad dressings, soups. The bread they bring you to start your meal is great, too. Easy to see why this place has thrived in an out of the way location. Party of 2, party of 20 they will see that you have a good meal and look forward to your next visit.
Love the place and it's good.
Mid-westerner who accompanied me enjoyed the fish immensely! Great friendly service, little pricey, but worth it.
This was probably one of the most delicious meals I've ever eaten. Everything was super flavorful and didn't just taste like fryer oil. Our waitress Kay was super friendly and attentive and gave us great recommendations on places to stay and visit in the area. I live about 3 hours away and I'd definitely make the drive just to eat here again.
Great food the fish tacos were excellent. I would have given 5 stars but there was an annoying flying insect that we had to keep waving away from our food. Perhaps they need to spray after closing.
Great Food and Service. Portions are huge. Love this place well worth it. Best seafood around.
I’ve always loved this place and try to make it here every time I visit CT. Today the service was absolutely horrendous. The hostess told me that it would be a shorter wait to sit at the bar. The bar was full therefore I decided to order my food to go, which they said would take approx 30-45 mins. I went to the bar to order a drink and bartender Chris asked “do you need anything else” and repeated it 3 times before I could get my answer out. I waited maybe 5 minutes and a seat opened up at the bar and decided to sit and eat. I asked Brooke if it was possible for me to eat my dinner here and she reluctantly said yes. I was sitting at the bar with my glass empty and not one bartender asked me if I needed another drink, at this time the bar slowed down. Once Brooke brought my food out she printed out the up charge for in-house dining and walked away. I sat there for about 2 minutes with no utensils trying to get one of the bartenders attention. No one asked me if I needed water, another drink, how the food was or if I needed anything. I requested to speak with a manager and Justin (Manager) told Chris to tell me that he was too busy to speak with me. As I continued to eat my food I saw what appeared to be a bug in my stuffing (disgusting), this definitely solidified me not ever eating at this restaurant EVER again. I’m a pretty good tipper and for the first time in my life I did not tip.
Great food and friendly service. You get a good amount of Lobster on their lobster rolls...plus 2 side items and there's plenty of parking.
A nice place to visit and eat at, the service was good and the food equally as well.
Very Good, Enjoy it very much..
The best restaurant and owner in Connecticut very classy!
They have amazing for and fantastic portions reasonably priced in a romantic atmosphere. I love this place. It's mine and my husbands little outing for this 10 years
Excellent seafood my sever Brittany was friendly helpful and prompt. My wife had lobster and crab and I had the seafood platter. Both were great and the portions are huge. We have plenty of leftovers. I highly recommend this place.
The food was good the server was friendly. The service was fast.
Great food. Love the renovations.
Must have been an off day. Service was really slow. The waitress recommended the "hot" libstlo roll. Don't ever order this. The meat was chewy, the lettuce was mushy and the was no spices/mayo. Very bad experience.
Excellent food and service. Pricey, but worth it for the freshest seafood you can find. Servers are always friendly, informed and efficient.
Bacon wrapped scallops were delicious
Great food and great service been going there for 20 years
Great place for top quality seafood, is a bit pricy yet the ALWAYS fresh, always delicious food makes up for any thjng you have to pay. Go check it out today!!
It's worth the wait. If you go during the busy times be prepared to wait, this is a very popular destination.
Great seafood! Fresh and done right...
With our schedules family really don't get a chance to meet for lunch .Maine Fish market is a family favorite! The food and service is always 5 stars
Had a brthday celebration for my mother and her sisters(a party of 10).Personally my broiled shrimp was overdone and chewy,but, everyone else was pleased with their meals. Great salad and tasty crusty bread. The service was exceptional.
Customer service was very good the waiting time can a bit long at times but it worth the wait.
