Klein's Fish Market Waterside Cafe Restaurant Review

: Since 1929, the Klein family has been serving super-fresh seafood in this fish-market-turned-dockside-dining restaurant. The place now includes a sushi bar and a grill room, where tablecloths and china replaced the picnic tables and paper plates of yore. Still, in the summer months, the most popular tables are outside, under big market umbrellas, with boats gliding past on their way to the sea and live music setting the mood. On the menu: grilled organic Scottish salmon topped with a Mandarin orange-pineapple chutney, and served with seasoned rice and haricots verts, and a number of non-fish dishes for landlubbers, such as petite filet and herb-crusted French-cut chicken. But the star of the show remains fresh-from-the-sea shrimp, scallops, lobster, clams and the catch-of-the-day, all served with homemade cocktail sauce.
