Every Saturday nite I go to the Fishwife for my weekly treat to myself. It's become like my weekend kickoff mantra. The service is always friendly and down to earth, they have an impressive list of quality brews, and the food is consistently excellent. My favorites are the fresh Dungeness crab cocktails and the Cod fish & chips; which is a huge serving and a steal at under $7! Their halibut is great too, but the Cod is my favoite, so light & moist. If Im feeling a little more outside the box, i usually go for the dinner specials; which change from week to week based on what fresh seafood is available. Last Friday I tried the chef's choice, a classic sauteed mussell dish made with bacon, apples, brandy & cream...it was pretty much in the top 5 meals of my life! The specials at the Fishwife are always impressive, and I was pleased to notice an addition of a naturally raised meat special to their menu. Finally I can talk my best friend who hates seafood into enjoying my Saturday nite tradition!
Pros: some may think Fishwife lacks ambience; but it more than makes up for it with unpretention
Cons: its a smaller place, so on busy friday nights expect a short wait
