Washington Shores Fish Market is not really a seafood market per se, but rather more of a neighborhood fish fry joint. Located in the Washington Shores neighborhood, just west of John Young Parkway right next to a Lynx bus stop, the unassuming shop, in somewhat sketchy locale, sells up loads of fried fish and shrimp for a value price.
You order up at the window, where the orders are fried fresh to order. Expect to wait maybe 10-15 minutes in your car or at one of the picnic tables outside. Classic Street Food.
You can order from a list of fish and seafood including grouper, catfish, Nile perch, shrimp ranging from $6 to $9. They also have sides for order from cheesy grits to hush puppies and coleslaw. The portions are all very generous, fresh and hot from the frier.
The daily special includes fried basa fish with bread and fries for $5.75, which comes with about 5-6 big pieces of fried fish fillets. The steak fries are crispy and delicious as are the fried fish. The fish breading is perfect.
