Bend Fish Company

It has been a long time since we visited the Bend Fish Company so we thought we’d check back in. It’s still good stuff. It’s still a little on the spendy side. But, as with any fish house, you should start with the chowder:

Bend Fish Market Chowder
The chowder is good but we found that it contained quite a bit of sand. That was unpleasant.

The wife had the Salmon Caesar for $6.95 (add grilled Salmon for $2). It took me a bit to understand why we had to pay extra for Salmon on a Salmon Caesar. I thought it was amusing/confusing. You’d think it was included. But the Salmon in the dressing was little bits. There was quite a bit of Salmon in the dressing but it was still worth the extra two bucks for the two pieces of grilled Salmon.

I know in my previous Bend Fish Company post I said that I’d go for the fish and chips next time. True to my word, I went with the Black Tiger Shrimp for $8.75. Now I do still feel that the menu items are on the spendy side but Deschutes Brewery charges $14 for Fish and Chips. So in comparison to Deschutes, the Fish and Chips is quite the deal.

When you get the fish and chips you have 8 choices of fish, 3 choices of slaw, and get to choose 2 of the 8 types of tarters they have available. It can be quite overwhelming.

I went with the Cilantro-Lime slaw and the Cap’n Dicks (Horseradish Cocktail Sauce) and the Toky (Wasabi, Soy, Pickled Ginger, Cucumber) for tarters. The shimp, slaw, and tarters were all very very good! The fries were edible but not really that good. There were a ton of fries though but we barely touched them. After the sandy chowder and stealing bites of the wife’s salad, I still got my fill.

Also on the earlier post, Dave asked a question in the comments which I don’t think I ever answered. “do they have anything for freaks like me who don’t like seafood?”

Well Dave, you can get the fries, spanish rice, refried black beans, potato salad, green bean salad, salsa, guac, and slaw…all of which on on the Sides portion of the menu. Enjoy.

LOL. Thanks, Boris.

Poor Connie. I don’t think I’m ever taking her to the Bend Fish Company. Besides, she loves the steelhead at Pine Tavern and the catfish at Baldy’s. Fish, shmish. 🙂

This used to be one of our fave spots, especially after they added a sushi bar. But we have had a couple of bad experiences lately. Seems the management has hired some folks who would rather be somewhere (maybe anywhere)else.
