The Fish House

7501 Woodbine Avenue
Markham, ON

For a recent UTSC gathering, we went to The Fish House on Woobine, just north of John Street. From Monday to Wednesdays, they have an early week special that includes an entree and one dessert, salad or soup for $15.99 or $18.99. After you select your fish, you can choose how it's prepared. It can either be blackened, broiled, poached, cedar planked, lemon peppered, grilled, pan fried, or simply jerked. They also have live music on select nights. The performer had scratchy vocals and sang a variety of covers ranging from Johnny Cash's Walk the Line to Rolling Stones' Angie.

Blackened Rainbow Trout. The fish was moist and not overcooked. The seasoning on this blackened rainbow trout was tasty, but I felt it overpowered the taste of the fish. It came with a choice of baked potato, garlic mash, rice, roast potatoes or fries. I got the baked potato and used the whole bar of butter plus all of the sour cream.
I wallowed in my guilt after.

Jerked Costa Rican Tilapia. I didn't try this, but she said she liked her dish!

Clam Chowder. The here soup was decent, nothing spectacular. All this talk about clam chowder is making me crave for one from The Soup Nutsy at TD Center. Those of you who have worked in buildings connected by the PATH will know exactly what I'm talking about. The line ups for the Soup Nutsy are crazy during lunch.

Coconut Raspberry Cheesecake. The cheesecake was a bit on the sweet side. Anything with coconut is good (with the exception of coconut hand creams, I hate that scent with a passion).

A list of fresh fishes it offers.

Overall, I think The Fish House offers pretty good specials. Usually $15.99 can only get you an entree at chains such as Moxies. At The Fish House, you get more value for your money and it's an okay place if you're a fan of fish.


  1. Was this the get together I missed in December?

  2. No it wasn't, I came here with Tracy and Kendra last week. We went to Joe Maggiano's for the gathering. You missed out, you were the only one missing! It's okay we'll all meet up when you get back...whenever that is. Don't get too carried away with all those Beijing girls haha jk.

  3. Ewwww fish. Do they only serve fish here? I don't think I would ever eat here...
