After properly cooking a lobster, its once brown exoskeleton turns bright red, letting chefs know that it's both ready to serve and profoundly embarrassed for showing up without pants. Make a meal of deliciously mortified seafood with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of fresh seafood and drinks at the Fisherman's Market on West Seventh Avenue.
The genuine fishermen of the Fisherman's Market reel in boatloads of fresh seafood to satisfy hungry landlubbers with snacks, small dishes, fish and chips options, sandwiches, specialties, and more. The fish-friendly eatery boasts more seafood variety than the reception banquet at a dolphin wedding, with an array of succulent crabs straight from the live tank, served with fries and coleslaw (market price), fresh mahi-mahi grilled or fried and wrapped in warm tortillas with cabbage, cotija cheese, and homemade taco sauce ($8.99), and plump Oregon shrimp served over romaine and fresh veggies and tossed in house-made Louie dressing ($8). The Fisherman's Market fries up a sprawling selection of fish and chips, with more than 10 variations of the classic pub dish, including traditional cod ($5.99), mahi-mahi ($6.99), wild salmon ($7.49), and bay scallops ($7.99). Each platter of fish-filet flavorbombs comes with fries, coleslaw, and two of the Fisherman's Market's six house-made sauces, known to inspire fits of condiment madness in jealous bottled dips.
Open seven days a week, the Fisherman's Market stocks many Oregon beers to compliment its local seafood dishes, including sweet-talking Ninkasi brews.
