Inside Fish City Grill, you might feel like you’ve stepped into a turn-of-the-century seaport warehouse – that is, turn-of-the-century with a whole lot of modern flair. The menu is anything but aged, putting a new spin on seafood with items such as the signature Oyster Nachos – fried oysters atop tortilla chips with chipotle tartar sauce and fresh pico de gallo. With reasonable prices and a casual atmosphere, this restaurant is fast becoming a weekly tradition for its surrounding community. And that’s exactly what owner Bill Bayne had in mind when he opened Fish City eight months ago. “We strive to be a neighborhood seafood joint,” Bayne says. “It’s very affordable for fresh seafood, so we are depending on people coming several times a week, not just on special occasions.” Menu items include Maryland crab cakes, Serafin’s fish tacos, Tabasco shrimp pasta, or if you’re really hungry, the Beach Party Platter, complete with two pounds of crab, a pound of shrimp and a pound of sausage.
