Burhop's Seafood Market
The Burhop family keeps their fish markets stocked with just-caught, never-frozen goods. They do this by going right to the source—wholesale distributors in Alaska, Hawaii, New England, and as far away as Australia. Their connections with these distributors stretch over the course of Burhop's 88-year history, which started when Albert "Pops" Burhop founded a wholesale-seafood business in downtown Chicago. When locals started offering him money and moon rocks in exchange for the prized cuts of fish, Pops decided to cut out the middleman.
Today, they proudly report that many of their loyal customers are transplants from the East and West Coasts, where fresh seafood is easier to come by. Ironically, Burhop's gets fresher stuff than many stores on the coasts do, thanks to Chicago's central location, which enables quick shipping from all of America's shores. In the shop, customers can watch as the filleters skillfully ply their craft. Get to know your Burhop’s fish mongers! A series of online video tutorialss teach home chefs to prep mouthwatering lobster tails, soft shell crabs, tuna burgers, and more.

“I used the $30 Groupon Coupon and the Fresh Grouper I purchased was $29 a lb. The fish was good, however, I would not go back there as most items were very pricy compared to other well stocked high end fish markets in say Standard Market or Caputos. Prices were close to Whole Foods fish, however, Ive been spoiled as we have a place on the Gulf in FL and Fresh Grouper in season there at the local fish market is about $17 lb. Burhops was good but pricey. If cost is no object to you, you will like it. I was glad that I paid the Groupon price so I was happy with the "Groupon Grouper"!”
