Our experience here is over several years, and extends to buying fish for preparation at home. Nickerson's is the best---for service, quality of fish, cooking advice, congeniality of the staff, and PRICE! I bought great swordfish here multiple times this summer, and their price id...More

It was just fun to go in and check out the live lobsters and all of the fresh fish! We have had the prepared lunches in the past and really enjoyed them.

Stopped by the fish market for a quick lunch for myself and houseguests. Service was friendly and efficient. Lobster rolls and fish and chips were terrific. I always buy my fresh seafood here and have never been disappointed.

Word of mouth told us to go to this dockside fish market with a take-out window. I ordered a lobster roll & my husband the fried shrimp basket. Both really underscored. My lobster roll was filled with celery and very small shredded pieces of lobster....More
