We had a special dinner here for our wedding anniversary. The snow was falling and the lighting was inviting. White tablecloths. Ernesto and his Crew are wonderfuil. They take pride in their "seafood shop by day and restaurant by night." They serve dinner Friday and Saturday night and lunch most days. The menu is small--but fresh fresh fresh. We had... More

I try to frequent E&S for lunch - unfortunately I always have the same sandwich! Grilled Halibut/Grouper or whatever is in season, spicy mayo, grilled jalapeno, lettuce, tomato on grilled Sourdough with a side of potato salad......absolutely divine. Ernesto and Co are always friendly, service is prompt, food is served piping hot. And when you finish with lunch, you can... More

This place is a nice find in a strip mall. I've passed by too many times to count before actually getting some friends together to eat there. I won't make this long, so in my opinion: It's a great spot to have some fresh, good, seafood appetizers and dinner. It's small and the bathrooms need some updating. The menu is... More

A hidden GEM hated to post about them since they only have a few tables and serve a couple days a week but I have eaten there 3 times and the meals have never disappointed

The whole concept of E&S Fish Market is great. A fish market by day, seafood restaurant by night. We had two delicious meals in a setting that was unusual but very pleasant. They transform the location with tables with good linens and tableware. The food was fresh and the dinners come with soup or salad. My husband had a red... More

Fishmarket by day, fantastic restaurant by night. I've stopped at this place off and on for various fish/seafood and then one day our friends invited us for dinner there - small and intimate and a pure delight. The options are not many but who cares - there's nothing not worth a try! Reservations are highly recommended - there are not... More

Always a great meal at E& S. Had dinner there on 2/26. Blackened grouper was delicious and the Chilean sea bass was to die for. Outstanding appetizers as well. BYOB makes the meal a bargain. Look forward to many more visits.

Tried to get in but without reservations you are out of luck. Did finally make a reservation and we were very happy to be there. Wonderful small selections of appetizers, and entree's. If you care to have a different fish then on the menu, you can select from the display and it will be prepared for you. All the dishes... More

Been here a few times. Open kitchen adds to the atmosphere. Also like looking at the fish in the glass case. Good food quality due in part to freshness of the catch. Bringing your own wine helps with the cost of the meal which is a tad pricey.

It was very easy to make same day reservations. Closing time is 8:00 in Friday, and our seating was at 7:30, but that wasn't a problem. People were still coming in after we, and there was no rush. Service was good, and the staff is young, friendly, and tries hard to take care of you. It is BYO, and, SURPRISE,... More
