This business is no longer open, probably due to trying to sell food that was not what they promised.

Everything I have gotten from here has been outstanding. Mostly Scallops and occasional fish. I lived on the coast for most of my life, this place is fine.

I went in to get fresh seafood because that's what they advertise and everything is frozen that comes to them the prices are outrageous not very clean not a friendly staff and wasn't really anything there I could get better seafood at Martins are Costco I was not very happy I was trying to support a local business but this business does not meet any expectations of being a seafood place

I went here it was new thought that I could get fresh seafood and everything's frozen they don't even have stuff that you would want to look for that I'm going to pay the extra price for that I could go to Martins and get their food was not that good the soup really sucked I can make better clam chowder at home better quality and that's a shame the prices are too expensive for the product that you are getting I would pay that price for fresh not for frozen

I went to Fish in a Barrel for lunch several months ago and had what I thought was a cup of seafood soup. The lady who helped me heated the soup and it was served in a small bowl which was about half full. There were a couple of pieces of seafood (fish, shrimp) in the bowl along with the broth. Both were very tasty and I thought the quality of the food was good. However, when I went to pay my bill I was charged for a bowl of soup which with tax was over $9.00! When I questioned the charge, she told me I received a bowl (and not a cup) of soup. The amount of food received for the price paid was outrageous and I have not been back since. Although I can afford to pay prices like this, I refuse to do so out of principal. I am curious to see if Fish in a Barrel can make it in Stephen's City with the prices they are charging. I wish them luck.
