I’ve been dying to go to Fish for a while now since I heard about their divine lobster rolls and fresh clams. I finally got to go when the boyfriend’s parents surprised me with dinner at Fish for my birthday. We arrived around 5:30 for an early dinner since we heard they fill up pretty quick later on in the night. We were seated right away and began to peruse the menu.
Since I was already 21, the boyfriend’s mom suggested that I get their Red, White and Blue deal ($8), which was your choice of 6 clams or 6 oysters and your choice of their house red wine, house white wine, and Blue Moon beer. It was a pretty good deal since one clam on the half shell costs $1.25 each. Since the majority of the table preferred clams, I went with the clams.
The house white wine was okay. For a house wine, it was pretty good but for my own personal tastes it wasn’t as sweet as I liked. Nonetheless, it was a nice accompaniment to my dinner.
The clams on the half shell were phenomenal! They were so fresh and so big. They were so good that we ended up ordering another half dozen for the table to share.
We each ordered the cup size of the Lobster Bisque ($7). The cup size is really more of a bowl size and the bowl size is more of a pot. The cup size was really big and I could barely finish it. It was, however, really damn good. There were tiny chunks of lobster on the bottom of the bowl and each spoonful was very flavorful. I did not need to add any condiments to it. Perfection!
My entrée was the Down East Lobster Feast, which features 1 ¼ pound lobster with steamers, corn on the cob and fries. The price of this dish depends on the market price for lobster that day. On the day that we went, the dish cost the grand total of $19. I think it’s a good deal for the large amount of food that you get. The lobster was cooked just right and the steamers slid off their clamshells. The corn on the cob was okay – it was a bit dry and didn’t have much flavor. The fries, however, was amazing. I couldn’t keep my hands off of them even though I was so full.
The boyfriend and I also shared a Lobster Mashed Potatoes side ($9), which was also quite good. The mashed potatoes were very creamy and buttery. The lobster sauce on top was well seasoned and had many lobster chunks. The two combined made a very creamy dish. Next time though, I might forgo this side because with all the food that we ordered, I was too full to finish it.
Everything was just so delicious at Fish. The clams and oysters were fresh and the lobsters were delicious. The boyfriend’s mother ordered an organic grilled salmon for her entrée, which was phenomenal as well. The salmon was very fresh and soft. It really was cooked to perfection. There was not a single rough piece in the entire dish. I can definitely seeing myself coming back to try the lobster rolls or the crab cakes.
