REVIEWS OF The Fish Market IN Connecticut

Elijah Rivera

The selection looked varied and fresh. The service was good although not quite friendly on my first and only visit so far. We got two take out lunches. The fish and chips and the crab cake and chips. Both were delicious and priced well at about $7 a piece. However, I do wish the portions were bigger. The prices in general seemed just a tad high for my liking especially because there were no oysters for under $1.30 per oyster. However, it seems to be the best option in the area, so I'll be back.

Management at this place is very poor, as well as employee training. I ordered out when done ordering I was asked to pay for my order at that moment before I stepped out the store and so I did, I got my food went 15 min drive back home to realize I did not have all of my order. When I called the store to ask what happen I got yelled at and was told I was trying to get free food. I felt so disrespected by the management. The food was great but customer service was extremly poor! I will not be returning.

OVERPRICED!!!!!!! I ordered from lunch menu some oysters and fries for $17 bucks with like 6 unseasoned fried oysters that they put in the microwave before serving me. Why are you putting my food in the microwave?!!!! Then I microwave it again when I get home because it’s take out..... They also have me 1 piece of haddock that looked like it was miles too and it wasn’t even the size of my hand. Cost $9. U lost my business

I always tell my friends in willimantic, "Do you see an Ocean around willimantic?" I've been living in s. whindham for 30 year. Two days ago I went to this fish market for the first time. The fish was not fresh. All the fish looked darken and old. I strongly advise you not to eat the salmon. They had two kind. The King looked darken and broken apart. That is a sign that is old and not fresh. The other salmon typed did looked more pinkish, but I noticed something about it. A lot of fat. That is a sign that is a Farm Salmon. Farm salmon are giving mainly artificial grains from china and some are known to be toxic. The fat in the fish is a sign of artificial feeding. Farm salmons are subject to lots of water lice because they are not in motion. So the farmers have to use pesticides on farm salmon to keep them away... lots of pesticides because the current is always in motion and moves the pesticides as it is spray. I then noticed two stickers on top of the cooler about the salmons. Sure enough it says that they are Farm Salmon. So leave you with this, "DO YOU SEE AN OCEAN AROUND WILLIMANTIC?" What i'm trying to say is , the seafood in this market is not fresh.

Everything was OK, nothing to go out of my way for. As far as the takeout. I had the fisherman's platter the whole belly clams I paid extra for where tiny, scallops were good, the fish was too much batter and not enough actual fish, shrimps were OK. Fries were good. Also bought 2 lobster rolls lobster was very good. Had a crab cake 3 people tried it. Only ate half of a crab cake wasn't very good too mooshy in the middle. My son had calamari he said that was very good. We did take everything to go in the little boxes they give you. Took 10 mins to get home everything seemed alittle soggy from the steam in the boxes. That was are visit to the fish market. Total cost 63.00.

Hank Lindgren

Excellent seafood, cooked and fresh. Had lunch but the only seating is outdoors and it was raining. Clam fritters were really good as was the whole belly clams

Ellen Graber Donohue

Ronald Kaiser

Best fish market I have been to in Connecticut. Always fresh and high quality sashimi grade fish (and scallops). Normally have the fish that are in season in summer/fall. A little expensive but worth the extra money.

Ordered take out meals. More than either of us could eat. Fish absolutely cooked to perfection. Clam sweet and tender

Nancy O'toole

Best place to get seafood. You can also order a lunch to go. Staff is very friendly.

Gloria Wood

Scallops were the best I have had in awhile. I ordered new England clam chowder and it was the worst I ever had. It was like a potatoes soup, at best 2 very small pieces of clam. No seasonings, celery, onions, and no flavor. Cole slaw was awesome. I will go back but will pass on the nechowder

I have been coming here for the past 5 years and the fish and shrimp selection has been excellent and fresh. However, I wont be returning because of the fact the lobster prices are way over priced and you can get a far better deal on lobsters right down the road at Stop & Shop. Also I witnessed the boss yelling at her employees in front of her customers on multiple occasions the past few years. Which is a very unprofessional way to run a business. I have read other comments about this place as well and they are half negative and half positive, sorry but you lost my business!

Dianne Doyle

I go here because they have local not farmed fish. For the price they charge I expect staff to be knowledgeable. Staff member could not tell me when a certain fish was brought into store. When asked (on Friday) he said Thursday or maybe Tuesday. That is a big difference. Fish was not bad but was not fresh.

Debbie Guerra

Not a good experience. Had clam fritters that were raw on the inside.

Sarah Lerner

We have only purchased the raw seafood so can’t speak to the kitchen but for us this place is a gem! Consistently fresh- love the swordfish, the clams, the lobster. The staff are friendly and the prices reasonable. Definitely would recommend.

Debra Desaulniers

Best freshest fish I have ever had

Pamela Rhone

Fried Shrimp, fries and cold slaw "Bangin"

I ordered the fisherman's platter with sweet potato fries as a take out to eat at home. The scallops were melt-in-your-mouth incredible! The fish was fresh hand beer battered and was amazing! All of the seafood was delicious. The sweet potato fries were very tastey too, but by the time I got home, they were on the soggy side, but still edible and yummy. I wish I'd had ventured inside before now. It's going to be my "go-to" on my splurge meal days. Highly recommend

The food was great, super fresh

Kurt Kaufman

Friendly staff and nice selection of fresh seafood and prepared meals for takeout. Crab cake had too much breading, but scallop sandwich was delicious.

Yummy! Home made chowder and lobster rolls were excellent. Good selection of fresh fish and seafood (lobsters in an aquarium). Very friendly staff. Compared to other options in that area, also quite affordable.

Got seafood wrap, & every bit was excellent—incl. the wrap, the lettuce, even the tomato—which wasn’t the mushy stuff you get at McD’s! Cole slaw also good—creamy type, not overly vinegary, not sweet. I’ve bought the seafood spread with hickory smoked shrimp from them at the Ellington Farmer’s Market—delicious! I think I had it on Wheat Thins crackers.

Michael H

High quality sushi grade fish. The fish here is amazingly fresh, every day the market gets fresh fish from local fishers and filets it at the store. The lobster is also impeccable and comes in a variety of sizes.

A. B. M Hasan Talukder

Good one; expensive though!


Has the best and freshest fish Employees and owner are the best
