Our guests always ask How did you guys come up with that name? and what is a Fishwife? It all started when my Grandfather said if I ever have a restaurant I will call it the Fishwife. He passed on and a few years later my parents decided to put their talents to work by starting a seafood restaurant. In tribute, the name Fishwife immediately came to mind. Now what exactly is a fishwife? Originally used in Great Britain, fishwives were just that - the wife of a fisherman who sold her husband's catch on the streets. They were known as tough, hardworking women.
This is a low key place that serves a wide variety of seafood dishes. Haven't been there in a while but I enjoyed my meal very much. The restaurant is decorated with historical and reproduction commercial fishing type paraphenelia, which I liked and found interesting.
The servers were friendly and I will go there again.
