The fish is slice from the whole right in front of you. The fish mongers have years of experience going back to the days when the owners worked at Benkowitz seafood. Limited seating. Has a sushi bar in another room

This is a nice place selling a variety of fish sandwiches, soups and even sushi. Nice people suggesting options while ordering and good atmosphere. Really a very simple place, but a good option for a quick lunch. Good prices. Glad I ended up there.

Whenever we are in the Strip District, we stop here for lunch. They have great lunch selections and good portions, mostly fish of course. The area where they prepare the food is often a mess since they fry most of the items, and the prices...More
