sneak a date

Dined on April 23, 2016

I had a wonderful afternoon date with my love, we both love seafood and she just dies for octopus she had hers grilled, mine was calamari she also had the oyster dish, that was prepared with a little too much spinach. I enjoyed the catfish and a side of creole rice fish needed a little more seasoning but was cooked well, creole sauce wow just great. Overall: a great experience we will be back.

Tin Fish is a great spot to relax, have a fine dinner and catch up with friends. The wait staff was wonderful, attentive, knowledgeable, and did not rush us out the door. They allowed us to have a lovely Friday evening dinner. Nicole G was fantastic!

We ordered the lobster bisque soup, it was very beefy tasting, not crab or lobster; The portions are small considering the $$$ amount you pay. we both had small meals and two drinks ...our bill was well over 100.00 atmosphere - none, and very loud, not for a romantic meal. food is average.

good food, but overpriced

Dined on March 20, 2016

I ordered seared scallops, which were delicious. My friend ordered the ribeye, which was a poor quality steak with a high quality price. Sides and desserts overpriced. Bread service was cold. Expect warm fresh bread at that price. Clam chowder good flavor, but no clams in it. Would go back if prices were better.

Good but pricey. Food was good....service was attentive but brusque. The ambiance just fair....I have seen this restaurant is popular.....and it wasn't bad but the value was not there for me. If I wasn't on an expense account..and I wasn't for this dinner...I probably would not go back.

Skin was left on whitefish- not acceptable. Cornmeal crust was pointless as it came off when I removed skin. On line price menu incorrect. No Bud- and beer prices are wrong. Needs update. Service very good.

Excellent Seafood

Dined on March 6, 2016

My wife and I once again went to Tin Fish for superbly prepared fresh seafood and we were not disappointed. My wife's scallops were a recommendation by our waiter (Joseph) and they were delicious. I selected the salmon special which was one of the best I have had in recent memory. Overall we had a great meal and excellent service. We left with a smile on our face and a stomach that was well satisfied.

Great Place for Out of Towners

Dined on March 5, 2016

We really wanted seafood, and we picked the right place. Ordered Lake Superior Whitefish (sautéed) with the bacon and shallot braised brussel sprouts. YUMMO! Hubby's steak was cooked to perfection (we like medium-rare). Four diners and all of us loved the food.

Spectacular!!

Dined on February 28, 2016

Tin Fish is a hidden gem. The seafood is excellent quality and the Chef is a master at preparing it! I have had many of their most popular dishes and have yet to taste one that I would not recommend. The Sea Bass and Sea Scallops are my two favorites, unless the Nantucket Bay Scallops are in season.....then I have them!! The service is terrific, with the wait staff being attentive but not overbearing. They are well versed in the elements of their menu. It is a little on the expensive side, however, so worth it!

This is one of our favorite restaurants. We love the food. The service is outstanding and the staff and owner really care that their guests are happy and satisfied. The bartender makes fantastic drinks and the chef always comes up with a unique dessert . I enjoy seeing the specials on the menu but have a hard time deciding because the regular menu is so good!

Flounder was very good. Wife got the scallops and loved them. Overall, the food and service was outstanding. A bit pricier than our normal dinners (Two beers, Two Entres, and appetizer came to $95), but we will probably return for a special occasion. I would definitely recommend Tinfish to friends.

First timer

vip
Dined on February 14, 2016

This was my first time at this restaurant. Overall the experience was good. However, the manager or general manager (I am unsure which) was walking around after people had their meals to ask how they were doing. He never came to our table, which was absolutely fine with us as I don't really care for that. What bothered me is that he apparently knew the people sitting behind us and literally stood there the entire time we were eating chatting it up with them. He went on and on about various topics such as fishing and the like. Great for him. I didnt need to hear this. I felt bad for the people he was talking too as Im unsure how they even enjoyed their meal; however, if they truly knew him-maybe they didnt mind. Far be it for me to speak for them. This was on Valentine's Day. I wanted to have a nice, quiet meal with my boyfriend. However, he just kept talking and talking and it wasn't necessarily in a low tone. Needless to say, we hurried through dinner to leave. Just not the experience I wanted. I didn't want to be rude and say something, but then again, should I really have to do so with a manager?

We always come here for a special occasion and they do not disappoint! The food is wonderful and thoughtful. We ordered appetizers as our meal: Crab bisque soup, buffalo shrimp, crab cakes and then a desert sampler. Everything we had was delicious and great quality. The desert platter we got to choose 3 single serve deserts which were amazing!
