restaurant review – market street

Market Street is known for really great seafood and steaks.  Their shrimp cocktail is to die for.  B and I are totally shrimp lovers, and market street has to be one of our favorite places for a good shrimp cocktail.  Market Street can be a little pricy due to the quality of the food, so being at a work party was nice as we didn’t have to worry about the prices.   The meats are really good quality.  If you are concerned about price, they are open for breakfast and it is a great way to start your day with steak and eggs from market street!

We started out with a shrimp cocktail and artichoke, crab dip.   Both were excellent.  If you had to choose, just go with the shrimp cocktail.  They also have phenomenal  flavored lemonades, I had a blackberry.  It was delicious.    I ordered the macadamia encrusted mahi mahi, served with honey jalapeño glaze, baby brussel sprouts and boiled potatoes.  B got the stuffed halibut served with a crab cake and hollandaise sauce.  Both were really delicious.   My mahi wasn’t evenly coated with the sauce though and without it I thought it was a little bland.  One half needed more sauce and the other half had a little too much, the mismatch with sauce was my only complaint.  We chose to pair our meal with their house made clam chowder, which honestly next to the shrimp cocktail is to die for.  Oh man, that clam chowder is rich, creamy, served at the perfect temperature and has a unique blend of flavor, pepper and spices.  It is delicious.   No matter what you get on the menu, make sure it includes shrimp cocktail and clam chowder.  They also serve this sliced sourdough bread that pairs perfectly with the chowder.  OK.  I need to stop.  It’s good.  Trust me.  The Chocolate cake was also delicious.  Dense.  Rich.  Really good.

Overall meal experience 8.5.  10++ for the shrimp and clam chowder.

Will we go again?  Yes.
