Laurent de Barry

Great place to buy lobster. They can pack it for travel if needed. Bought 4 lobsters and drove down to Boston and they were still alive when I got there.

Jane Croston

Always the best and freshest. Lived out on the islands for 20+ yrs. and it's just a bit bigger and even better than the old days. Helpful and to my mind the only place in Portland for seafood.

Josie Dispenza

Fresh fresh fresh! Very good clerks....

Jason Trease

Excellent! Best fish market in town!

Larry Turner

Simply the best place for seafood - anywhere.

Mimi Zhu

We need a harbor fish market in NY. We were traveling in a group of 4 and decided to stay in and cook dinner one night. It doesn't get easier than that. We don't have to decide what to eat, and there is no wait. We got (10)1 and 1/8 lobsters at $5.49/lb. That is a steal! Spent approx. 62 bucks on 10 lobsters that fed 4 girls. NOT BAD AT ALL. We steamed it 7 minutes and it came out perfectly. The lobster meat was tender and smooth and can tell the lobster was soo fresh. I would go back for the lobster.

Wendy Haltom

Only place I will buy seafood. Fresh, fast, and delicious!

Diana Nguyen

I truly enjoy places like Harbor Fish Market. Everyone is passionate about what they do and they have fantastic customer service. When you walk in, you'll see a long counter with dozens of different fish to choose from. To your left, you see lobster tanks with kickin' Maine lobsters. You'll also see a ton of buckets of oysters where you can pick and choose different types and take popsicle sticks with the type of oyster on it to give to the counter. On the right hand side are freezers where you can grab prepared food like calamari, crab cakes, etc. I was able to pick and choose what butterfish I wanted and the kind gentleman behind the counter helped to pack my fish in a to go box with a reusable icepack. I cannot wait to come back and see what's in stock!

Richard Dayton

Stopped here to get seafood while in Portland. This place is small and not very fancy, but the seafood was great and they were very busy. Looks like they have been in business there for a 100 years. Worth a visit.

Jeff H

Great prices on local lobster for a prime location. They sell pre cooked lobster, too. Yum.

Elizabeth Arris

Fresh and so amazing

Ryan McDonald

All and all its a great seafood market, probably the best in Portland. But beware dont assume everything is fresh, you have to check it out before they wrap it up. In the past 2 years there were 4 times I've got haddock that was not up to their usual standards (1 of those times was 10 pounds for a special family dinner) but i have probably been there 120 times in my adult life. I still go and will continue

Daniel Doucette

Freshest seafood and a great selection.

Beverly Hallman

We LOVE this fish market. The fish is always super fresh and their staff, very knowledgeable and customer oriented. Today a worker convinced me I could save money, plus eat yummie fish cooking the whole fish...head and all! We used their cookbook, and it came out GREAT. We are regulars, try to make it once a week.

Susan Sheridan

Lots of variety, and great service.

gmaw Pyle

My daughter and I made our very first trip to Portland, Me the week of Oct 17, 2018. One of our stops was the Harbor Fish Market. The employees were so friendly and helpful. We bought a few items, but then wanted to have some shipped home. Alice suggested we wait until we get home and order on line, that way we are guaranteed to be here when it arrives. I am so glad we did. We received our shipment the day after we ordered it. and had family over to share it. The lobster and the oysters we ordered were the most delicious we have ever had. We loved it so much we are going to be ordering again. Thank you Harbor Fish Market, you are awesome. We will be making a trip next year with more family members and we are all so excited to visit you again.

It really is a fish market AND they'll help with ice if you need it.

Kenneth Weaver

You want fresh fish and seafood? You want to see real fish mongers? You want to experience Portland? Of course you do! Go to Harbor Fish, everything is fresh, the staff know what they are selling, and you will not be disappointed. Did I mention the prices are extremely reasonable?

lori oberholtzer

Mark Walter

Nice selection of fresh fish, shellfish and lobsters.

Chris Bernazzani

Lemon sole, flounder, clams and octopus..sushi grade fish..great staff..love the place

Jim Mohler

You can't get seafood any fresher than this. The boats are unloaded from the Harbor to the back door. The people are very helpful and will offer suggestions to help you. If you want more ideas for how to prepare a variety of fresh seafood they published a great cookbook that has a section, Fish 101, that provides good information on the handling and preparation of seafood and about 90 pages of recipes. This business was established in the 1800's and has been owned by the same family since 1966. If you're looking for a great seafood market you can't go wrong here.

Rand Sheets

Just bought 10 hardshell pound lobsters here and at least three out of the 10 or stone cold dead like dead for a little while if they are giving lobsters to people like this you know they are cooking the lobster is that they give to you cooked dead I wouldn’t get lobsters from here again

Susan Morgan

We love Harbor Fish Market! We visit everytime we are in Portland!

Dan Lopes

This place is great. Friendly and helpful staff. The place was busy but they kept helping people and didn't take long to grab our seafood.

Min Kim

We picked up some fresh lobsters from here and made a great dinner. Fresh seafood and nice staff here.

Henry Quinn

The fish is fresh, the people are experts. Don't come to gawk : it's a small business, buy something or get out of the way for someone who is. Don't miss the frozen stuff -- chowders, etc -- either.

Grace Young

Great place to buy fresh seafood. Crowded with plenty of locals, which is a good sign. When we came, the daily special was scallops for $15.99 a pound, which is way cheaper than what they typically go for, at least in Cambridge. We also got some sushi grade tuna and a 60g tray of uni for $9.99. The uni tasted buttery and fresh. The man behind the counter was also extremely helpful and steered us away from buying the overpriced lobster. They gave us a styrofoam box and ice for the trip back home, and everything was still cold hours later. Would make the trip to Portland just to come back here!

Paul Gentilini

Great selection of fresh oysters, lobster and clams. Also tons of fresh fish and everything you need to season and cook your seafood. Cool location; right on a working wharf.

Jados Moreno

Best selection around. Nearly always full of very confused tourists. Move like you know what you want

stephen donohoe

Very fresh sea food

Ron Laramee

Number one, selection, freshness

Lauren Tidwell

Great market with fantastic prices. Many options for fish and their live lobster and crab tubs are huge.

Mexi l Booboo

Cashiers are usually somewhat rude? Unknown why? Good seafood selection and fresh.

Brian Plass

Holy lobster!! Such a fun experience, watched the guy working to get the lobster in the tanks stop and answer questions from a kid asking about the live lobster. He then let the inquisitive child with smiling parents in tow, today some of the clawed water insects into the tank. It lit up the entire market. We sampled some smoked salmon, and bought it. The prices seemed fair and the staff was just the best. Check it out!

jeff

Third time I’ve gotten fish from this place and third time some of the batch smelled spoiled and looked off color. Cooked them up and I was right , tasted like purée!! Disgusting, ruined it for us. Batch that was good was actually good, but you’re paying too much to be rolling the dice. Guess it’s my fault for giving them another chance. Selling things that are not shellfish or salmon is not this place’s specialty. For a place right next to the water with “fish” in its middle name, it’s very disappointing.

Dawn Peters

This place was amazing! We dropped by during vacation. What a fresh seafood collection!!!

Tom Anderson

Great selection of fish and shellfish. Everything I've gotten has been fresh and prices are pretty good. Definitely far superior to supermarket fare.

Chris Gunner

This really was a perfect location in the port. Many selections of fresh fish. The scallops were some of the sweetest I have had in years. Defiantly will be back to continue trying their large selection.

Kelly Miclette

Fresh seafood. Great employees. Great pricing. Doesn't get better. I recommend checking them out before you buy from a supermarket!

Katie Hatch

I would absolutely give harbor 5 stars, but as a local who regularly shops at the market, I was told the cookers were off 1.5 hours before it closed. The customer service has gone down hill and is not run in a way which is reflective of the Portland local vibe. So sad.

kenneth hirsch

The freshest fish at reasonable prices.

Merrill Robbins

The best seafood always fresh, and the employees know there seafood

Ian Flamm

Marc Guimond

Mike Pearce

So this place is awsome, right on the docks, fresh lobster at a great price along with other seafood. Great assortment of oysters as well. I highly recommend going here for your fresh seafood needs. Staff did a great job of answering questions and were keeping the place clean while everyone was shopping. Parking is limited and the shop is a little tight but they get you taken care of really quick. They also ship seafood to you throughout the U.S. haven't tried that part yet but I do have the info. If I am ever back in the area I will stop in again.

Rand Sheets

Just bought 10 hardshell pound lobsters here and at least three out of the 10 or stone cold dead like dead for a little while if they are giving lobsters to people like this you know they are cooking the lobster is that they give to you cooked dead I wouldn’t get lobsters from here again

James Siler

Harbor Fish Market is a local landmark. It is associated with a wholesale operation, and has consistently very fresh and well priced fish and shellfish. As an example I recently purchased beautiful and absolutely fresh sushi grade yellow fin tuna on sale at about $14 a pound. Unlike some other places in the area, sushi grade here means exactly what it says. They sometimes even have uni, sea urchin roe, for sale at ridiculously low prices. Their selection of oyters is incredible, but pricey, selling at a one price per any oyster of between $1.45 and $1.70, depending on the market. Also check out the local rope grown Bangs Island mussels. They sold by the two pound sack, tagged with the date of harvest. Recently got some that had been harvested the day before, and they were spectacular. I've had them almost a week old too, and they were still delicious. And, of course, they have live lobsters in tanks. These are not the sad looking, slow moving, half dead things that you might find in your supermarket or even the local lobster pounds in the off season. They are dark, fast moving creatures that are very much alive and very tasty. They will steam them for you on request. They also sell lobster meat.

Roman Popov

An awesome place to get a huge variety of fish and sea monsters for those culinary inclined. Most fish is alive (read: as fresh as fresh can be).

Jason Roebuck

Very cool place. Outstanding looking fish counter.

Todd

Great selection. Just not the lobster we needed to take home on the plane.

Portia Hirschman

Fresh fish and friendly folks.

Erich Kielburger

Touristy but pack my lobsters and oysters well to travel home with

G H

Large selection. Fair prices. Dependable.

Alisa Yescas

A great experience. So many types of fish!! Yet i always leave with a lobster, everytime

Dave Sacerdote

Freshest fish and shellfish anywhere, fair and reasonable prices. On my latest visit, they had a huge selection of oysters from all over the Maine coast. We bought an assortment and sat on the beach, opening and eating them in the rough. It doesn't get much better than that.

Joel Guilbert

This place is great. It's surrounded by water. Where all the seafood comes in. The 8 small softshell lobsters (5.99lb! 54.91 total!) that I steamed were the best tasting, most savory lobster I've ever tasted. This will ruin lobster from now on. There really can't be anything better.

Brenda Rose

Best fresh seafood in Portland. So many choices. Good prices.

Michael G

Cute place, didn't buy anything but definitely worth checking out.

M Ryan-Brackett

This is by far, The Best fish market I have ever been to . It feels like a step back in time when you walk in and experience the hustle and bustle of customers and the staff, and the selection of fresh fish is plentiful and a huge variety. So much fun!

Ben Goff

Good seafood at decent prices

frank palmisano

Nellie Bee

Bought lots of seafood here to bring back home as gifts. They were very friendly and packed my box for the drive back to NYC. And you can order it there and have it shipped.

Cristina Alcaraz Hocker

The perfect spot to get fresh fish and seafood! We love coming here every year!

Wax Brackett

FRESH ocean fish from fillets, steaks, to fresh caught they clean and fillet to order. Shell fish, lobsters the works. They don't cook but provide ice as needed for travel. Can't get any fresher or better selection in the area. You may have to wait a minute for parking but it is available right outside the door.

Edward Larrabee

The sea food is always it spent last night in Costco bay a real treatscallops hats of alfaros keep it up best in the business brothers

Henry Whelchel

I always visit Harbor Fish Market when in Portland. They cook their lobster meat better than many restaurants do. Sometimes they even have belly from a large tuna! All of the fish and shellfish is of top quality weather expensive or less expensive.

Graham Nichols

Real deal North Atlantic fish market in Portland Maine. You want fresh fish, this is the place to get it.

Daniel Hashimoto

Great place to pick up fresh fish and oysters. They have a book describing each type of oyster and popsicle sticks with labels to help you remember for when you get home. Definitely recommend a visit!

Checked it out today. Coming back in the AM to get some fresh fish for the ride home. Fantastic place!

tom hedge

Always fresh seafood

Scott Walsh

Seafood lovers market top shelf products

Roman Popov

An awesome place to get a huge variety of fish and sea monsters for those culinary inclined. Most fish is alive (read: as fresh as fresh can be).

Jason Roebuck

Very cool place. Outstanding looking fish counter.

Todd

Great selection. Just not the lobster we needed to take home on the plane.

Danny Willey

Great fresh Fish!

Erich Kielburger

Touristy but pack my lobsters and oysters well to travel home with

G H

Large selection. Fair prices. Dependable.

Alisa Yescas

A great experience. So many types of fish!! Yet i always leave with a lobster, everytime

Dave Sacerdote

Freshest fish and shellfish anywhere, fair and reasonable prices. On my latest visit, they had a huge selection of oysters from all over the Maine coast. We bought an assortment and sat on the beach, opening and eating them in the rough. It doesn't get much better than that.

Joel Guilbert

This place is great. It's surrounded by water. Where all the seafood comes in. The 8 small softshell lobsters (5.99lb! 54.91 total!) that I steamed were the best tasting, most savory lobster I've ever tasted. This will ruin lobster from now on. There really can't be anything better.

Brenda Rose

Best fresh seafood in Portland. So many choices. Good prices.

M Ryan-Brackett

This is by far, The Best fish market I have ever been to . It feels like a step back in time when you walk in and experience the hustle and bustle of customers and the staff, and the selection of fresh fish is plentiful and a huge variety. So much fun!

frank palmisano

Everything you want in Fresh Seafood.

Angel Salmons

Fresh seafood on the dock. Like I stepped back in time!

Jerry Lavigne

Dont buy the mussels . I do t know where they come from buy a lot of dead ones in the bag

Nellie Bee

Bought lots of seafood here to bring back home as gifts. They were very friendly and packed my box for the drive back to NYC. And you can order it there and have it shipped.

Cristina Alcaraz Hocker

The perfect spot to get fresh fish and seafood! We love coming here every year!

Wax Brackett

FRESH ocean fish from fillets, steaks, to fresh caught they clean and fillet to order. Shell fish, lobsters the works. They don't cook but provide ice as needed for travel. Can't get any fresher or better selection in the area. You may have to wait a minute for parking but it is available right outside the door.

Edward Larrabee

The sea food is always it spent last night in Costco bay a real treatscallops hats of alfaros keep it up best in the business brothers

Henry Whelchel

I always visit Harbor Fish Market when in Portland. They cook their lobster meat better than many restaurants do. Sometimes they even have belly from a large tuna! All of the fish and shellfish is of top quality weather expensive or less expensive.

Graham Nichols

Real deal North Atlantic fish market in Portland Maine. You want fresh fish, this is the place to get it.

Jens Andersson

The place to go for fresh fish in Portland. It looks like it has been around forever. The selection is impressive, just look at all the different oysters! Also, very cool to see all the lobsters swimming around in the pools.

Olga Romanov

Always get the freshest fish and great prices!!

James Doyle

This is the go-to place for seafood lovers residing in, or visiting, Portland, Maine. Large selection freshly caught and loaded right from the dock. Knowledgeable and helpful staff.

Gio Lobato

Cool little fish market with a huge selection of oysters and a lobster pound.

amy strout

Love this place

geo bod

Loved it cannot wait to go back

Kerry Tull

Great variety!

Tulasi Meduri

Great seafood always fresh. My son had a great time holding lobster and check in out all the seafood available. Great customer service.

Peter Marut

Got lucky and found Harbor Fish Market on the way to a fishing trip in Bangor. Plenty of 2 pound lobsters to choose from along with several types of oysters and fish galore. Will definitely be stopping back the next time we are in the area.

Ange Neilson

Amazing fresh seafood. Prices are the best around. The quality and selection, hands down the best.

andre t

Fresh fish and friendly staff

Niko Zhang

The muffin is amazing

Brad Holderman

Nothing like fresh fish, choices differ every time I stop in suggesting fresh off the boat options. Staff is helpful and even busy, I've never waited very long.

Bettina Pearson

Wonderful! From the athletic valet parking attendant, to the lovely dining room (including a life size display of blooming dog wood), friendly staff, knowledgeable server and delicious food. So glad we chose to go there. Special shout out to our server Tom who was perfect!

Light Biaggi

My favorite place to get fresh seafood

Ward Tisdale

Best fish market in town, been there for decades. Huge variety of offerings. I went straight for the 1.59 oysters.

Melinda McLeod

Seafood is a staple of our diets. Having a local seafood shop close by with fresh seafood is delightful. Less than a mile from the East End right on the harbor you get the freshest fairest priced seafood around. Summer gets busy so earlier in the day the better. Parking is tight but doable if you go early.

Loretta Garman

Great small town fish market. Awesome variety

Luke Priola

Favorite place to get fresh seafood in the old port. Prices are great and the fish is always fresh. Great place for kids to explore the variety of sea creatures we eat and the staff is always playful and willing to share their love for fish. Oh! Bonus, they pack your purchase on ice for your journey home. Just ask!

Mike Reggio

Great selection of fresh seafood

Cady Yang

Very fresh sea food, I love the oysters, should pay a visit.

Rory DuPont

Great quality and service. Prices have crept up a bit over the last couple years, like most of Portland.

Bill B

One of the best fish markets there is. Huge assortment of everything tasty from the sea as fresh as can be. Top quality seafood. Helpful, knowledgeable staff will set you up with whatever you're looking for and pack it in ice for the trip back home. Worth braving the Old Port crowds, if you love seafood check it out.

Molly Suitor

Huge selection of fresh oysters, fish and other seafood. Very knowledgeable fish mongers. They also have loaves of bread and lemons in case you forgot them, and a selection of gifts.

Carol Kotal

Excellent seafood. Great customer service.

Judy B

Disappointed we couldn't ship BIG LOBSTERS

Lisa Kloman-Nappi

Freshest fish ever and a clean friendly environment.

Gene Huelman

This was a fun little place to check out while doing all of the tourist stuff. Coming from a land lock location it is neat to see the good prices for the seafood.

Kevin McLaughlin

The greatest fish market in the world!!

Jasmine Mills

I highly recommend Harbor Fish Market. Their seafood is always very fresh and the employees are professional. My only complaint is that I found a worm in my fresh haddock. Apparently, parasites are commonly found in fish in nature, so this can happen for haddock and cod. Although, it was unsettling to find a worm in my fish. Please inspect the fish better in the future. Other than this hiccup, I do still recommend Harbor Fish and I will return.

Dwelvan David

Freshest! Friendliest! FANTASTIC!

Eric Shrode

Got a $110 gift certificate for Christmas. Tried to order $56 worth of product on line. Could not get the order to go through after many tries. Finally called and was advised I had to put in a credit card number as well as a gift card number even if the amount ordered was less than the amount on the gift card. I advised the service rep that it was not made clear on the website that both was needed. She said she knew but nothing she could do about it. I advised she could advise management as the current system resulted in a very poor custermer interaction. Turns out my total order was $135, so shipping was more than half the value of the gift card. Moral of the story, Harbor Fish Market may have a good product (will have to wait upon my order's arrival to verify), and their prices in their retail store may be competitive, but they are DEFINITELY A POOR ON LINE VALUE. My advise, save your money and buy local. A $50 Red Lobster gift card would have been MUCH better.

Peter Campbell

Wide variety. Fresh.

Heather Tucker

Always has a huge selection of the very freshest seafood!

Steven Earley

Iconic fish market on Portland Pier. Always fresh seafood at competitive prices. A must seafood market to shop when visiting Portland’s waterfront,

Daniel Bardy

Luv it .1st time there great experience my lobster and crab was so good.cant wsit to go back

Paul Rousselle

Great place to get your seafood to bring home and cook up yourself especially if you're a local. The product is as fresh as you can get. Much better than your local supermarket. Prices are fair, not a steal. But I don't mind paying for freshness. The guys behind the fish counter are always professional and friendly. Only reason I'm not able to give them five stars is because everytime I have gone there which is allot, the girls at the cash register are not very outgoing. It's like you go from friendly clerk's behind the counter to a cashier who acts like she is bored out of her mind and really doesn't want to be bothered. They need to address that and once they do, I would give them 5 stars for sure. I'm a stickler when it comes to customer service and feeling that my business is appreciated. I doubt I'm the only person who feels this way when giving a company your business and money. Overall though, great place for fresh seafood no doubt about that.

Ken Alden

Best fresh fish market in Portland. Parking can be iffy, but just be patient. Staff super helpful to make sure you find what you're looking for. Many types of Shellfish as well.

Ethan Cotton

Magnificent seafood. Convenient, friendly

Susan Stemper

Always good! Nice variety of fresh fish and seafood, including sushi grade. Helpful staff. Try to avoid peak tourist times!

russ reynolds

We wouldn't think of coming to Portland without stopping for Seafood to take home from Harbor Fish Market!

Brittany Childers

So great! Good help, very knowledgeable. We'll be bringing our bugs on the plain with us.

Jimal

Harbor fish is the only place I'll go for fresh seafood when I'm in Portland!

Michael Harnois

Incredible seafood purveyors! A selection of seafood that is amazing, pristine and very, very fresh. Food

Donna Weaver

Very very fresh seafood. I always leave with a variety of fresh fish. All associates are helpful, patient and knowledgeable of their product.

Christopher Connor

Could probably get a tattoo of a haddock based on how much I've purchased from this market, but it's also always fun to stare at the overall selection and wish your horizons were wider. Jonah crab meat is often stocked, and I believe Sunday is their largest selection of whole fish. Laughing Bird shrimp, farm raised in Costa Rica, are also excellent for tacos and relatively inexpensive. They provide ice if you need it.
