We just had an outdoors mid afternoon baskets of fried oysters, or shrimp or bay scallops with seasoned rice and cole slaw plus an Orange IPA. So excellent! I have to say this was much to my delight a best. Parking is tight after 4 pm plus a wait so we lucked out going 3:30 pm with no problems midweek! Funny, eclectic, fish market. What is that fish spread served with crackers, sooooo good and fir sale in the fish market.

We have been frequenting Walt's fish market for years. Some of the best fresh fish available anywhere, but lately we don't even want to go in. Instead of the friendly, helpful fish people who always were quick to answer a question or suggest a specific fish, or cut it just so, now it seems like you are wasting their time, you barely get a hello or even a smile. Too surly for us, we'll find another place.

Met local friends here. We ate outside. This is really a local place. Waiter was great and food really good. Hubby and I shared the calamari appetizer and then shared the grilled fish platter. Delicious! Our friends had raw oysters for app then friend ones for their meal. We left happy. Oh, and don’t forget the comp fish spread they give you...yum.

Wow! We had been told of this restaurant by friends but have not been there before today. We will be going back again. The menu offers a wide selection. Our waitress was very good. She checked on us frequently to be sure we were happy with our experience. Our meals were outstanding.

We all ate Hog fish and it was good - one of the appetizers triggered a reaction from our group - not sure of the issue, but it made him sick
