“Seafood as fresh as the morning dew!”– Chicago Sun-Times.

Davis Street Fishmarket is an Evanston restaurant and Chicago area’s #1 seafood destination for nearly 30 years. We are a full service restaurant and bar located near Northwestern University and just blocks from Lake Michigan.

Daily seafood specials comprised of fresh seafood flown in every day from around the world to your table. We also sport a bustling raw bar with up to 10 varieties of oysters. A terrific beer, wine and cocktail list can be enjoyed in our quiet and relaxed dining room, or in our lively, 50-seat bar.

If seafood is not your thing, don’t worry. We are known for our wonderfully tender, aged steaks, an amazing burger, fresh salads and the best po’ boys anywhere. We also feature a wide selection of gluten-free items.

Established in 1985, Davis Street Fishmarket, is at the corner of Hinman and Davis Street in downtown Evanston. Within walking distance from Northwestern University, the restaurant actually sits in the NU original administration building.

Locally owned and operated, Davis Street Fishmarket was one of the first Chicago area restaurants to deliver fresh, “off the boat”, seafood from around the world to the Chicago area at honest and fair prices. The restaurant is dedicated quality food, simple and flavorful preparations, and genuine hospitality. This commitment has created 30 years of loyal customers who have enjoyed some of their most memorable dining experiences of their lives at Davis Street Fishmarket.
