If you have a craving for fish that is local and fresh—you cannot go wrong with The Fish Guys! Check them out in an at-first-tough-to-spot location on the bottom floor of the apartment building on the SW corner of 23rd and Jackson Street. The Fish Guys have fresh fish, shellfish, oysters, mussels and poke—all extremely fresh! And they have complimentary prepared foods.
We stop by every couple of weeks for anything that is extra fresh, to barbeque. Our favorites are the black cod (best price in town in August at $19.99/pound) and steelhead salmon. But I also like to mix and match their three kinds of poke. The crab cocktail is best in the city—packed with fresh crab! You can picnic there on the spot but we usually take our bag of fish home and treat ourselves for a couple days. Local pies and cookies are also available. The owners gained their expertise by working at Mutual Fish and then found this bright busy location just off the #14 bus line.
Note that some poke can be extra spicy :-). Enjoy!
