Perfect Salmon Salad & Blackened Stealhead w/ fries
Delicious po' boys.
The halibut is absolutely amazing. Best fish and chips I've ever had.
Previous positive experience with Alaskan fish sandwich and mussels, but yesterday the fish chowder/soup and the Autumn Mussels was disappointingly room temp. Would not eat it again, but the fried fish was good. (3 + 1)/2 = 2 stars
Excellent food, excellent service! I can't wait to go back
Rating only on experience of eating at fish lads. I got half dozen oysters and a mussel and clam plate. My bill was $34. I have no problem with prices as long as the food is worth it. The clams and mussels plate looked more like an appetizer portion... and then when I looked at their size I knew I had been had. I'm hopeful other things on the menu are worth it but dont go in there hungry.
Everything thing that we have tried here has been very good. They get the five stars for quality BUT they are expensive. Very expensive.
Great seafood and fine menu to eat from
My husband and I went here for the first time. Was VERY satisfied! The whitefish sandwich was awesome and the fish is so fresh. They are generous with the portions as well. Will go back next week!
Love their seafood selections
They offer wide options for seafood. We usually get salmon jerky from them if we want to splurge (it's about $30/lb. They also have delicious fish and chips and super delicious soup. It's a joy to stop over at Fish Lads whenever we go to Downtown Market.
I wish I had a market like this in Kalamazoo. To make at home I got fresh halibut cheeks, striped bass, and some small smelt-like fish from Lake Superior. Everything they get is high quality and fresh, never frozen. The staff is great and are happy to tell you what’s fresh in that day, where it came from, or whatever you would like to know. I also loved sitting down at their counter and eating some fresh oysters and a delicious bowl of their clam chowder. I am going to try to come here every time I visit Grand Rapids.
Great seafood selection for purchase in the Downtown Market
(Translated by Google) Yummmmm (Original) Yummmm
One of my favorite lobster rolls and always delicious new oysters to try.
Great looking seafood products but very pricey. Left with no purchase. Rate it a 5 star on selections and quality but a 2 on affordability. Many things at the Market are too pricy overall.
Fried cod was great. Was not greasey and some of the best I’ve had.
I've been told that Fish Lads has excellent fish tacos... So I got the Hawaiian Fish Taco Special with coconut and pineapple & cabbage slaw. Unfortunately, the fish was so dry that it was hard to chew and swallow. And the only thing that really had any flavor was the pineapple. So because there was no flavor and the fish was overcooked, I asked or more pineapple... they charged me. :( Service was friendly but I'll never go back for the bland food.
Great Fish n Chips and Salmon BLT is incredible. Always gave a sample of smoked fish before buying. AAA++++
Best lobster I've had!
After coming here for years our last visit was horrendous. We came for a lobster sandwich special and what was advertised versus what we received were two entirely different things. Also, when I try to let the restaurant know they just keep deleting my comments and photo and shutting off comments on Facebook. Too expensive for what you get.
Love Fish Lads!! Stop in every time we are in Grand Rapids. Heard one may open in Detroit. That would be awesome!!! Hope they make that happen.
They are the best around to provide excellent quality fish, I will never go anywhere else! People that are gonna complain about price are ridiculous, you are purchasing quality fish that is barely frozen. Compared to you going to your local grocery store and buying it cheaper from the freezer section or going to the counter and the place smelling cause its not fresh. The staff is so nice and always willing to help you with anything you need. I had no idea what to do with shrimp and didn't want to buy frozen from Meijer, so I called them up and asked a few questions and within 30 mins I was there and Andy was teaching me all about how to properly prepare shrimp such as how to devein, take off the legs, and shell. Then I had Devin give me a little tour of their products I wasn't aware of such as their pickled food and I ended up walking away with the best experience, great shrimp, and fantastic pickled carrots that are amazing!! Love them and will continue to support such a great business. Thanks guys!
Best seafood in Michigan!!
Absolutely delicious and the guys working here are always friendly and informative. So far my favorite has been the crispy snapper sandwich and the battered cod. But really everything on the menus is worth trying. Also the tarter sauce is something like I've never had...all tarter sauces should taste like this (usually not a fan of tarter).
Awesome food, awesome fresh seafood. Don't pass up this opportunity!!!!!
The food is amazing like mouth watering good, salmon jerky, there lobster rolls some of the best food in Grand rapids and Michigan.
We had a two complicated orders at the Ada location during the holiday season chaos. Drew went above and beyond ensuring we were totally satisfied. Happy to see he’s now at the downtown location. Kudos drew
As a first time customer I’m disappointed with the service (very dismissive and rude) and quality of the cocktail sauce. While the shrimp and oysters were fresh the cocktail sauce was inedible and ruined the seafood. Because the sauce is a staple for me I asked for horse radish to accompany my shrimp and they said they were out. Weirdly, they said I could buy a jar! Horrible service. The bad (really bad) cocktail sauce ruined $72.00 worth of seafood. Lost my appetite. Won’t be returning.
Lobster rolls here are great!
Best selection of fresh seafood in town. Always a good selection of oysters, as well as ahi tuna, swordfish, walleye filets, king crab etc. Dine at the counter and get fresher better seafood at half the price of a steakhouse. Delicious cioppino, clam chowder to warm you up on a cold day. Half price oysters on Monday.
Lobster roll was Amazingly delicious!
We bought half dozen shrimp-lovely pink color but absolutely NO FLAVOR(?)! We'll buy from the Fishmonger's Wife Always FRESH.
Awesome grill fish! Clean, fast and nice service. The food is definitely so great , just loved the place. We went for lunchtime. Will repeat next time go back to Grand Rapids.
They have it all.
The cod was very good
Do yourself a favor and get the best fish and chips in Michigan! Outstanding fish and meats! Do not miss!
Fish and chips were okay.
Where can a Englishman get fish and chips in Dutch Village? Consider substituting coleslaw for chips as a healthy alternative. Fish was excellent and in London style. Cheers
Tries the 2017 Grandwich - Fresh walleye with some awesome slaw and hot sauce. Pickles too. The crunch and chew was spectacular. Very tasty! Service was oddly slow since I was the only person in the place.
Oh my gosh! Such wonderful smoked fish! Haven't tasted it yet, but it looks and smells PERFECT!!!!
Great quality & very fresh!
The clam chowder is excellent. The cioppino is okay. Love the open area and numerous options.
Omg best seafood I've ever had in Michigan. The fresh market catch feel and taste of all their items are amazing. We had literally the best Maine Lobster roll ever! Blackened Salmon and Panko white fish sandwiches. Fries were great and even sauces were scratch made and delicious.
Great staff & selection
Best selection of sushi grade seafood in all of Grand Rapids. They are a bit pricey, but you will definitely receive the best quality cuts for the cost. If you are planning to make your own home made Sushi, definitely check out Fish Lads!
I went for lunch. Price was higher than what I saw on FB. I brought the issue up to them and the server brushed it off. No place to hang my winter coat. Table was sticky when I sat down. I had to wipe it off myself. The fish display is beautiful: but, I asked is in a future visit I could pick out my own fish from the case and have it cooked, they said no. Then, I rcvd a story about how high the cost was and that specialty cooking could not be done. Then, I was told about how high the cost of what I was eating was. The experience did not make me feel like a valued customer. I would more likely go buy fish in the future at a different gourmet counter and take it home in order to cook it myself. Staff needs better training. I hope they improve. It is a good concept.
Nice fresh fish, have to pay to park and little on pricey side
Fish and chips and a shrimp poboy. Served hot and fast. Very tasty and fresh.
Freeeeesssssh!!!! Awesome building. Lad's has a wide variety of product, knowledgeable staff, and fresh oysters, $1.00 on Mondays, need I say more? I go every time when I'm in GR.
Haven't had a meal here yet, but the smoked salmon filets and jerky are well worth the price. I probably visit at least once a month to pick some up.
Wild caught fish is the best.
Great Lobster roll and must is the Crispy Cod sandwich!!! Awesome service!!
The food was awesome! I went there expecting overpriced and average food, but was super excited to be wrong!! It was great. I will be returning.
So delicious, a little pricy but good for a treat every now and then. Great job guys!
I love everything about this place! Fresh cracked oysters are the bomb.
Excellent quality and a great selection. Very clean and a helpful staff!
If putting fish in your mouth while handsome bearded dudes watch you is your thing, you found your place.
Expensive but very tasty.
Ordered 1 lbs King Crab, 1/2 lbs shrimp And a crab cake we also ordered a grilled cheese sandwich from Aperotivo across the walk way from Fish Lads everything was great .
While looking at the fish case to see selection to and price was told by an employee to back away from the fish. Great customer service, I backed away aanytime soon ay to my car. Won't be back anytime soon
Incredible Seafood Gumbo
Unbelievable smoked meats and crab cakes. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. My new favorite place to go.
So here is my review, i live up north, 42 miles from the fish lad. We went there to get some smoked fish heard it was the best. well before i buy $20's a lb i want to taste it before i buy it. so i asked for a sample and they told me no. if they had a no star i would push that.
No better place to get fresh seafood in GR. Little pricier than the local grocery store, but selection and quality are top notch.
Its what i do!
Love the salmon BLT sandwich!
My most favorite Salmon Burger, staff very friendly and helpful
Fish Lads is amazing! Everything is out of this world! Literally the best fish and seafood you can get!
Extremely overpriced, and rude staff. Wouldn't reccomend.
Great service, wonderful quality-perfect for special meals with friends and family. A little pricey, but I'm sure that's the cost for being in the Downtown Market.
The halibut fish is highly recommended. The fries could have been cooked a couple minutes longer but they were still good. The staff was friendly and very informative. We also brought home smoked salmon and salmon jerky! Can't wait to head back for more.
Fresh shucked oysters and fresh fish!!! Awesome shop!
Easily the freshest and best selection of seafood in the area, probably the state. Beyond the exceptional service and seafood, the menu offers some of the best food in grand rapids, no question. We're lucky to have a place like this nearby!
The Fish Lads service and quality is always top notch! Highly recommend!!
Good but a bit pricey. Love the downtown market but you have to pay for parking.
The salmon jerky is a must try. Very well done, open air market vibe.
Located in the downtown market. Fresh fish and now offers prepared foods. Good selection, pricey, but quality.
Fish Lads never fails to produce an excellent meal. The halibut is always a 5/5.
Food is excellent and the Downtown Market has a great atmosphere. I got the clams and mussels and my husband got the perch. They were both excellent meal. Friendly, engaged staff. We will be going again.
heir seafood is fresh...beautiful...but so over-priced ... $30.00 per pound for yellow perch ?!?!?!?! Not all the marine species they sell are sustainable ... some are currently listed as over exploited. Example: do a Google search on Chilean sea bass (patagonian toothfish) or monkfish and you'll see what I mean. Fish Lads frown on farmed seafood like everyone seems to do these days due to ignorance, false information, and bad press. This is too bad, since many farmed species have a cleaner "bill of health" and less contaminants than wild caught species.
Always the key ingredients for a show stopping entree.
Great place but very pricey!
Excellent food, pretty good service.
Very wonderful experience and the fish and chips were on point
If like dead oysters and overpriced fish, this is the place for you. Watch out too, the owners will attack any negative opinion you have of them.
I have gone here with my parents. As an Anglophile Yank who enjoys fried fish, I must say that Fish Lads is among the best in GR. I find it hard to remember which type of fish I ordered, but it was both crispy and tender. I want to revisit Fish Lads next time I go into the GR Downtown Market.
The food is unreal. Even so, just a bit pricey. Yet, I keep coming back.
Always good, yummy!
Great fish! Perfect for sushi :)
1/2 off on Tuesday's!
Best place to have halibut. I crave this stuff every few weeks, for my fish fix.
Yummy fish and chips!!
Product is really fresh.
Best oysters I've ever had in my life
Halibut and fries are awesome! The burger from the Carvers side is the best deal in town.
Best seafood in Grand Rapids! They have an excellent selection of fresh seafood as well as the best seafood dishes in town. The crab cakes are unreal!
I look forward to indulging here on occasion but today was just ok. I'm still not a fan of the curried cocktail sauce with my shooters and wish that some things, people would just not tamper with. When India starts becoming known for oysters, maybe I'll be more open-minded about adding overpowering spices to my coastal food items. Just give me Sriracha, Tabasco, and some saltines. The service was just ok and I think that my server was either lacking knowledge about the oysters or disinterested in explaining the origins and taste profiles of each selection. He was a super nice guy but I think that most of the people working at the Downtown Market are more concerned about how well their hipster beanie cap sits on their heads, rather than the quality of service. We had to request silverware, didn't receive water refills on time, and weren't checked on while dining. I'm not saying that I want to be read crustacean poetry but a little more info would have been appreciated. I felt that the steamed shrimp were sub-par this time but were prepared well, aside from having to settle for more curried cocktail sauce. The oysters were in fact excellent but I wish we had been able to take in a better experience with regards to gaining knowledge about taste profile info, other than "this one is more briney."
OMG! This place is fantastic!
Delicious French fries and FRESH fish plus other seafood items. Highly recommend!
Best fresh fish selections in Grand Rapids
Great food pricey
Omg! The fish was excellent! We had perch and halibut (I believe). It was so clean and delicious tasting and so fresh. I really appreciated the helpful and kind staff. They didn't make me feel weird at all. I love that I felt 100% comfortable asking questions.
Very helpful staff. Great seafood options. The lobster roll was phenomenal.
Excellent clam chowder! Yummy!!
I ordered the perch fish & chips. The fish was over cooked & dry & not seasoned at all. The fries had too much salt & pepper. The lemon wedges were so small I could barely squeeze & the cup of tartar sauce was half full. All for $16. Never again!
Definitely one of the best spots for seafood in Grand rapids. Last time I was there I had the lobster roll, and I was on par with lobster rolls I had in Massachusetts. Their fries were awesome too. Its also a fish market for all sorts of seafood, but it's a great spot for a dinner. Limited seating, but there's spots all over the Market if their seats are full.
Best place to take yourself on a date or share the experience with another seafood junkie. Explore a variety of oysters, I prefer blue point or fanny bay. Keep your experience light by ordering a few oysters and shrimp if you don’t want a full meal. The lobster roll is massively awesome. If you don’t know what to get, you can’t go wrong with fish’n’chips, totally shareable. Take it all in and watch the bustle of the market. Don’t forget to take some fresh fish home too. If you’re not up for all that work then try some of their dips and spreadables as a take away.
The selection and the expertise is worth the cost. I know I could find cheaper, but I don't feel like I could find better. I live shopping local when I buy here.
Loved Tuesday half off Lobster Roll & friendly service.
Best quality seafood I have found in the city.
I love it! Amazing service and delicious food!
Sushi grade tuna! And good counter service dining.
will never go there again. went there for the 1st time to get smoked fish. $20 a lb. would not let us sample it. i want to sample what i get before buying it. i live 40 miles away and would hate to get home and it would of been nasty. so no stars for me.
