The Fish is now a barcade that does not serve food. Now it is an arcade and bar. Smoking is allowed inside. There is seating outside. Staff is always friendly and fast.

Stopped by for lunch and enjoyed a rice bowl with shrimp and a cold beer. Nice flavor, good presentation, and just a nice place to sit outdoors with your dog, and have a sidewalk lunch. She liked the shrimp too!

We called by for a bite of lunch on St Patricks day. The place advertised seafood, which would have suited us all, and had loads of free table outside. Turned out to be sushi, which I think is mostly cold rice - not really our...More

My wife and I tried this place out after hearing excellent reviews, but we really were not impressed. Let's face it, this place is gloriously overpriced and you can get the same if not better sushi elsewhere, far cheaper. What's pushing this place is the...More

Not really... the prices in this downtown area are so low that happy hour menus are not necessary. All of the bars have everything on special, all the time, compared to just about anywhere else.
