Drove up to strip mall, parking plentiful. There was a wait (they don’t take reservations). Gave name to hostess and went inside for drinks. Very noisy inside- nice nautical décor. Brought drinks outside- there was a singer- performed easy listening. There were benches to wait, seafood was served at hostess table for people waiting. Families as well as dates were there, I wanted a baked stuffed lobster but smallest they had was 3 ½ lbs. The fish was amazing. We also had shrimp tacos, fish tacos, and a mahi sandwich. Food was served as ready so it was hot. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes fresh fish/seafood. Fun night out, entertainment, amazing fresh seafood in a relaxing outdoor venue.

I took the trip up for an early dinner at 5PM on a Monday afternoon. The place was empty! Which never bothers me. I like a quiet restaurant. There was no wait and Mia, my waitress, was attentive and friendly.She was very knowledgeable regarding the menu and willing to recommend her favorites dishes and drinks.That’s always nice because, as a first timer, I have no idea what’s good.I started off with Mia’s recommendation. I ordered a Moscow Mule. It was amazing! One of the best I’ve ever had. The drink stood out because it was gingery and sour as if they put a little too much lime into the cocktail. That’s just the way I like it! For a starter, I ordered their New England Clam Chowder soup. I’ve had better and at the cost of $7.00, it was nothing to write home about. It tasted overly creamy and almost like it came from a can. No matter what seafood restaurant I go to, my go-to meal is always fish tacos. Fish tacos are tricky…Coleslaw, fish and a flour tortillas are bland tasting ingredients.In order to create a great fish taco, it takes creativity and the ability to pair flavors perfectly.Tin Fish uses an Alaskan codfish, plan coleslaw, and cheddar cheese.In my opinion, they needed more flavor.I’ve had some AMAZING fish tacos with creative twists. Tin Fish’s tacos were not bad, but they weren’t enough to stand out in a city with such great seafood. Next, for dessert, I had their homemade carrot cake! That was special! I’ve never had a carrot cake that good in my life! It was like eating a cinnamon, carrot cake with a butter icing. Honestly, I would go back just for that!

I was waiting for a friend I asked for two waters. She brought one and said I will bring a fresh one when your friend arrives. She did. We ordered our wine it was out right away. We went a little backwards and had our salad first and then apps. Everything was sent out quick and looked great. Joe and his staff are so friendly you just want to keep coming back again and again. My friend even planned her husband’s 50th there. He didn’t want to do anything crazy, so this is a perfect spot!! I would recommend Tin Fish for sure!! Parking was in front of the restaurant. We were welcomed inside. We noticed all the amazing fresh fish and very cool nautical decor inside but decided to eat outside. Our server was great she had a big smile on her face was knowledgeable on the menu items and a pleasure to talk to. I went with the special of the day. It was grilled mahi blackened. Fish was cooked perfectly not undercooked but still soft and full of flavor. The fish was served over a mixed greens salad with sautéed onions and peppers, corn, black beans, salsa, white cheese and a perfectly made avocado creme dressing. The flavors of the avocado came out so it was not overwhelmed with a mayo type flavor. After that we enjoyed some Drunken Clams (We also added mussels for a $4 upcharge) Large and meaty clams and mussels in a large decorative bowl. I felt like grandma served them to me. The sauce was subtle enough that you can get the real flavor of the seafood yet full of flavor. Loved them! The chef was in and out walking around and saying hello to everyone. I asked for her to make me a killer desert to which she obliged. She made me a crème Brule. The absolute best part of this desert is that sugar topping all burnt and crackly! My friend and I shared everything (except the wine of course). We left very satisfied we couldn’t even finish!
