Excellent, excellent, excellent and incredibly fresh fish of all kinds. Small, not fancy, but the lobster bisque is the best I've ever had. Just paper plates. But worth the little higher than usual price. Been there about 10 times so far. Never disappointed.

love the shrimp cocktail, fried founder, chicken parm, and the delivery service is quick. I work in the area and depend on delivery and pizza just does not do it. Thank you for being consistent. Tell my guest ALL the time o call FISH FACTORY.

The Fish Factory was super close to the beach house we rented and I really wanted to like it. The shrimp cocktail and crab legs were great. The fried seafood sampler was ok - I could get it at any Red Lobster across the midwest....More

We just ordered take-out for 17 people. Our order was precisely correct and absolutely delicious. The staff is conscientious and capable. The food is first-rate and economical, from fish tacos to king crab. You can eat in, but the restaurant is relatively modest. If you...More

Don't know if ownership changed. This was our first visit to the area.
Can you make a reservation for 15 people?

The Fish Factory is a small establishment and it depends on when you are in the area. When I went in June there wasn't a large crowd. As the reviewer above stated; it's best to call ahead.
