Hadn’t been here in years and was so excited to have Father’s Day lunch here. What a disappointment. Typical Landry’s bought it and overhauled an exceptional menu into Red Lobster quality fare. Will not be back. Overpriced, flavorless.

On our way to East Coast from Minnesota we took a chance on a seafood restaurant and were not disappointed. My plank salmon was moist, flavorful and perfectly cooked. My husbands shrimp/pasta dish was delicious. And did I mention the loaded redskins???? Unbelievable! Must order...More

The food is consistently undercooked. I have to go there on business frequently but you have to tell them over and over to cook it.

I ate at the bar. I had some cocktails that were on the happy hour menu. I ordered stuff cod and it was delicious and the service was great.

Based on ratings, we decided to try the Columbus Fish Market. Maybe we came on a bad night, although I would hope this place does not have too many bad Fridays. The menu seems slightly overpriced but we dove in. The appetizer (Lobster Crab Dumplings)...More

The last time I went to this restaurant was some 5 years ago. What happened to this place? This time, a foul smell permeated from the bathroom as soon as we entered the restaurant. Food was average and overpriced, and the service barely acceptable. Very...More

We dined here recently before attending an NCAA final four basketball game, and were pleased by the good quality food, friendly service and pleasant decor. Incorporating a fresh fish market, the extensive menu is heavy on seafood items. Two of my companions ordered a crab...More

Very good seafood and service. Somewhat on the pricey side but to be expected for this type of restaurant. Lots of parking which is good but not near too much. I had the scallops which were decent; they were similar to what you find in...More

By far the best fish in this Midwest market. Servers are fair. Not many care. Desert can be excellent. Key Lime is super although sometimes they serve old pie. You can tell it has been sitting around by the consistency.

I thought the portions were reasonably sized for the type of restaurant that it was.. To me, justification for the price is the quality of the food and atmosphere that one experiences vs going next door to the Cap City Diner... More

Most guest dress more upscale anywhere from business casual to coats and ties. However, jeans are acceptable. For the type of restaurant I would say tee shirts, cut offs and flip flops wouldn't be appropiate, IMHO, but I... More
