Love the Ocean Perch

Len Austin

Ocean perch is always great

Chris Williams

OMG!!! I ordered 1lb of clams, 1 lb of smelt, a cod platter, and poppers. Cod was under cooked and cold, smelt and clams were overcooked and cold, poppers were ok. The smelt and clams were like eating a rubberized dehydrated terd!!! Very unhappy and don't understand how it can be cold when I live 10 minutes away.

Lynn Williamson

Very good food!! Will definitely be going back there!!

Francesca Woods

Really great food and the prices are reasonable.

Aaaron D

Decent fried fish for the grand rapids Northeast side. Good selection and prepared properly. They have fresh Oysters too. The inside could use a good cleaning and would definitely benefit from a couple gallons of paint but Looks aren't generally a priority when your getting take out.

Good food, no dine in to speak of

I have rated both places as there seems to be two locations for this place. I assume you can buy uncooked fish here as well, but I usually have it fried before I leave. The staff is friendly and the food excellent, would recommend if you're looking for some fried food. Try the excellent crab cakes!

Great for fried seafood to go. The perch was slightly overcooked, but still pretty delicious. They have several seasonings to choose from for your fish as well.

Brian Stelter

Great fish, reliable and tasty

Patrick Firlik

Provides great fish for our Christmas Eve every year!

Jessica Hoffman

The catfish was excellent! Surprised and not in a good way about the lake perch and how it was by far worse than the catfish! Food not nearly seasoned enough & was VERY disappointed that we drove an hour for overcooked greasy butterfly shrimp & how the baskets were clearly different. My husband and I ordered the same shrimp basket I received 5 shrimp to his 10 to be bland & priced the same. I've been to fish markets in Lansing that will put this one out of business. Won't be going back! Not worth the drive!!

Ryan Kole

Always great food and they go the extra mile to satisfy your appetite

Derrick Mccuien

Have been there before not sure if they changed their batter or cooked our fish 5 times as long but you couldn't pay me to eat there again. Onion rings were burnt and tarter sauce is horrible

linda baker

I bought a half pound of perch but got home and weighed it because it felt light. Definitely not a half pound. Won't be going back.

R Swisher

Been going here for year. First fish market I found after moving to GR in the 80s. Things have changed some after Jim sold it to retire. Many thing remained the same. You need to try this if you have never been there before.

Tasty little smelt

My experience here was GREAT! I called ahead To make sure I could get what I was looking for and I got the best information. I then called the next day before I was going to pick up what I needed and they had it all ready for me when I got there, quick and simple! The guy I spoke with was so nice and friendly. I will definitely be going back for all my seafood needs! I got three pounds of pre-cooked crawfish for a boil and it tasted delicious and was perfect! Thanks again! Keep up the good business!!

Great fresh market, with good meat, fish, cheese, and beer selection. Will cost you for the higher quality! Can you justify the cost?

Bernard Fogg

Great fish at a reasonable price e

Nathan Franklin

Great as always

Adam Bachert

Terrible. The ownership has changed do not expect what you are used to getting. The lake perch are not lake perch. The fish is very rubbery and tasteless.

Chad Porter

Kevin Smith

Excellent food! I had the okra and the clams and they were both cooked perfectly. Some places the breading is too soggy or falls off the okra but here they were super crispy on the outside and tender in the middle. Definitely will be back.

Stephen Bloechl

Laurel Hanks

Can't decide? Get the sampler. Yummy

Sherrah Simmons

Scallops made me come back! Customer service today... makes me NOT want to go back. I desire, nay, require great service when I spend my money be it local or otherwise. This man had the audacity to tell me he wants to run my card to make sure I had money on it!!! He said he didn't want to make food that he'd have to throw away. I never! Annddd I never will.
