My daughter and her friend had a lovely dinner here. The food was remarkably good considering the distance away from the ocean. Thw wait staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was homey.

Another great find for eating out in Chicago thanks to Trip Advisor. The great reviews proved reliable, it’s a limited menu but none the worse for that. Glasses are a bit naff, in the form of old jars but I suppose you are not there...More

Small in size but with a big heart and great skill. Three of us had lunch here and literally everything we had was terrific: perfectly seasoned New England style clam chowder, crisp & fresh-tasting cod, ingenious "black and white" catfish, sweet and succulent crab cake,...More

My wife and I were persuaded to have lunch at Fish Bar because (1) it is located only 14 blocks from our condominium, (2) specializes in seafood, (3) seats only 30 people and (4) has all the trappings of a New England seaside pub. Located...More

Love this place. I moved to Chicago a year ago and have been here around 10 times. Great fish with a southern twist in places. The blackened redfish is one of my favourite dishes anywhere. The staff are always knowledgeable and attentive. It has never...More
