Great shrimp basket. Breading on the shrimp was nice and crisp. Just a few tables inside. Typically pretty busy. Would recommend.

My co-worker Ric brought me lunch today from this Cafe and I must say, even after the 15 minute or so drive back, it is so hot and fresh and the fried fish it still crunchy outside and the fries are cooked perfectly. Tarter sauce is REALLY GOOD and the potato salad is super yummy! Potatos are cooked really well and seasoned well. I will absolutely be coming here alot and def. Recommend this place to others!!

I was told that this a a good place for fish and chips and after reading the reviews I decided to give it a try. Many of the reviews said that the banana pudding was a must have, so fish and chips and banana pudding was the order. It did not disappoint. Not the best fish I have ever had but all in all I would get it again. Pudding was very good and very rich. I will be back for another selection on the menu.

Very friendly establishment for the locals! Located in what's known as Hilltop Tacoma. My order of Fish and Chips was a generous portion. Perfectly crispy! Also, I ordered a side of Okra. OMG Okra. So delicious. The fish in the fish sandwich is not a Patty. It 2 complete fish strips! So you are getting your money's worth at this place. Many loyal locals will recommend this place for new residents for sure. Seafood lovers enjoy!!

Best place on earth for a fish and chip combo. Their Philly's are another great option. Don't forget to add the banana pudding if you're lucky enough to get it before it goes. Love the staff and the food. My whole family goes here.

Good food but way too much salt on the fish and wings. If the Cafe use a little less salt they just might be on to something. I'll give it a try again but if I have the same experience I won't be back. Sometimes less is better Fish House Cafe.

I’m so upset that I don’t live closer to this amazing restaurant. When I come into town I make sure to time it so I can stop in. I love the batter/mix they use on the outside, it’s so crunchy and deliciously seasoned. I can’t get back home without opening the bag and snagging a bite. Great side sauce & sides.

Been looking for a decent Fish and Chips lately and this place did not disappoint. I got the Fish and Chips, which were cooked perfectly and the batter tasted amazing. My bf ordered the Shrimp and Fish, both really great. Only thing we were not impressed with were the fries. A bit soggy and not much season. And the batter could have been crispier.But with that said, fish was good and the service was good. Will definitely be back soon.

We stopped in here after dropping off our uhaul after a very long day. Our order was taken by a very friendly lady and 10 minutes later we had a spectacular meal. The fish is breaded fresh when you order and was cooked perfectly. The fries were a perfectly salted masterpiece and my onion rings had perfect onion to breading ratio. The breaded shrimp were awesome too. Not skimpy on portions or flavor. The price was excellent as well! We will DEFINITELY be coming back here!

Most of my family is from the south so eating here is like going home. I swear it tastes like Friday at Grandma's house. I can't wait for my mom to come and visit so I can take her here. If you haven't been you need to go and get you some of that deliciousness 💕

The fish we received was very salty, the prawns are just basic butterflied shrimp that was glat and breaded, and the starter tasted like ranch dressing. The food wasn't terrible but it wasn't great either. The person taking orders was friendly and did her best to explain their menu. Unfortunately I paid for subbing out fries in one of our meals only to get home and find that they did not actually sub anything out. I assume they are not taking phone orders during Covid, as I tried calling several times on my way there and received a busy signal instead. I've been here in the past and didn't have this kind of experience, so I will try again next time I'm in Tacoma.

Food hot fresh tasty. Service was quick and freindly. Staff actually seemed to enjoy serving customers. The place was old and cramped. It was dark and begging for an update. But for some reason i think it would lose it's charm if it were updated.

Hands down the best fish and chips in town. All of 5stars and more. The southern style(pictured) is my favorite, fried okra and banana pudding for a side. You have to check this place out

This place is awesome! Best fish and chips I’ve had in the 18 months I’ve lived in Washington. I’m from rhode island, so fish and chips is an institution. I got the fish and chips combo and my wife got the fish and shrimp combo. Came with fries and soda and we added a side of hush puppies. All told under 22.00 and we are full!! The batter is light and flavorful. Fries and hush puppies are perfect. We will come back!!!

Great food. This place is a fixture of the community. Everyone is treated as if they're longtime regulars. Food is cooked per order, so be willing to wait for hot, fresh food. My only complaint is that seasoning may sometimes be a bit salty.

On my top favorites list for food! The staff there is always so friendly and sweet. The fish and chips are hands down the best I’ve had. Seasoned and cooked to perfection each time I’ve ordered here. The price is very reasonable for what you get. The banana pudding is also incredible. Please give the fish house a try! You won’t be disappointed.

I loved this place. Reminds me of back home fish and chips. Number one is amazing, definently coming back. Hopefully they expand and make it bigger or move to a bigger spot for the customers when waiting But they were friendly and I enjoyed my food. I can tell it's a family owned business aswell which is a plus

My favorite place to go for fish, hot wings and Philly's. You can small the fried food from down the street. Don't let this whole in the wall fool you. If you can order early that is better as there is usually a line. Seating is limited.

Best fish I've had in Washington state. Having roots in the South, all we eat is southern cornmeal fried fish. I have tried countless fish places, and none compare to Fish House! Although can be a bit salty, I live it like that! And its fried "hard" but flaky on the inside. Never greasy, so Idk what kind of grease they use... Portions are generous enough to where I don't even order sides. Just that delicious pound cake!! Mmm Mmm!! Call ahead or wait, either way its 10 min to deliciousness!! Definitely recommend it!

If you love southern fried food and fish this is definitely the place to go. They have been featured in the local paper and are always busy during lunch. I absolutely love the fish and chips. My favorite combo is the fish, fries and wings combo and the price is reasonable. Great service and friendly.
