    We had such a wonderful dinner at Mass St Fish Market last night! Our server gave us the perfect, appropriate amount of attention and the food was delicious ! We each got a pasta / seafood entree and couldn’t decide which one we liked better! We always get the Bang Bang Shrimp—spicy and very tasty!

    Happy Hour dinner with friends was great. We all enjoyed our shared food items. The service was spot on. The champagne and oysters was a great hit. And our favorite, the Ahi Tuna Nachos, was excellent as usual.

    The outdoor patio was very nice for our “date night.” The servers were attentive. The selection of beverages was a high point. The other high point was the olive oil cake for dessert- not to be missed! Otherwise, the fish/seafood preparation- and the otherwise lovely loaf of bread- were overwhelmed by salt rather than seasoning. The paella was a disappointment because it was so very highly salted- to the point that I was concerned about whether there might be MSG in it. The same was true for the Brussels sprouts. And why a very beautiful loaf of bread with accompanying butter needed to be smothered in sea salt is a mystery. The presentation is beautiful, but this is not a menu for those accustomed to a moderated sodium diet.

    Like a lot of restaurants, they seem to be suffering from a shortage of staff. I have to give credit to the ones working there as they do try very hard. The salmon BLT was fantastic. I thought the cold coconut and corn soup was just OK.

    We had crab cakes for appetizer….they were very average. Too gooey inside. Salmon was cooked perfectly, but lacked seasoning. My favorite is Ahi Nacho’s, for the most part pretty good, just a bit heavy on the cabbage slaw

    The seafood is fantastic and so fresh. Loved the creative ways the food is served. The staff is so friendly and polite. Enjoyed everything we had, ahi tuna nachos, cerviche, crab cakes (sooo delicious, moist and the perfect sear), ruby trout was smoky, tender and the orange vinagrette was so fresh and bright, Swordfish bolagnase was meaty and wonderful. My son loved the shrimp bucatini. Dessert was turkish olive oil cake, so warm and yummy, and the espresso semifreddo was a real pleasant surprise for this non coffee person. It was so creamy. Can't wait to go back!!!

    I am not sure how you burn (blackened) crab cakes and leave the center raw. The same person burned the $5 bread which rendered beyond chewy. I thought a fish place would have some choices in terms of a filet of fish...mahi mahi, red snapper, scallops, etc. They offer salmon, trout and little else unless you like your seafood ground up with pasta. Why would you ask if this was a celebration ie birthday in the reservation process and then never acknowledge it during or after the dinner? Catfish in Kansas seems like a safe bet.

    One of our most favorite restaurants. The only negative is that it can get so loud when the restaurant is full and you have to talk louder to be heard @ the table. Not a fan of having to speak so loudly while having a meal. So, not an intimate spot unless maybe you eat @ their patio. Other than that, love it!

    We always enjoy our experience at MSFH. The menu has too many great options - makes decisions difficult, but you can’t go wrong. Settled in the paella - was terrific last night. Good wine list. Overall - great food and service and a lively atmosphere.

    AHI Tuna Nachos are good. Fish and Chips could have been a little better. Go at Happy Hour to be less expensive. Look forward to returning another time to try more. Good service and experience.

    It may have just been an off day but our meals just weren't good. Our drinks were also not great. The salmon sandwich was overcooked and they really skimped on the salmon. The ahi tuna was also overcooked and the clam chowder was lumpy and grey. Our drinks tasted like dirty water. We enjoyed the staff and the ambiance. We'll give it another chance someday!

    Beautiful outdoor area on a cooler early summer night. Good happy hour specials, raw oysters, ahi tuna nachos, mussels and fries and decent cocktail selection to go along with. Bread for soaking up the mussel broth had to be ordered separately.

    What an enjoyable dining experience at Mass St Fish House! Fun cocktail menu, crab cakes for starters with a perfect crunch on the breading, then onto lobster tail and the Shrimp Bucatini Pasta! Great flavors on all foods and an excellent server who kept our table smiling!! I will definitely dine again!! Thank you so much for a great memory!!
