The Incredible Fish Market With The Most Delicious Seafood In Austin
Gorgeous red snapper, stunning lobster, and beautiful mahi mahi are just a few of the things you might find at Mongers’ massive fish market. This glistening East Austin gem sells fresh fish to take home as well as divine dishes to eat inside. When you’re craving a delightful clam chowder or oyster stew, this is the place to go. This incredible fish market has the most delicious seafood in Austin.
Owner Shane Stark and fishmonger Roberto San Miguel make the perfect team.
Stark met San Miguel while walking through a local farmers' market one day. Roberto offered to show him his fresh fish from the gulf, and Shane was blown away by the beauty and quality of the catch.
Stark and San Miguel drive to the coastline every week to ensure they always have the freshest options.
Due to the fickle nature of the sea, the selection at Mongers' fish market changes frequently. When lobsters are abundant, you're certain to have a vast variety of delicious red shellfish. If the mahi mahi is looking especially appealing, expect to find plenty of this impeccable fish.
There are a few staples you can always expect to see on display.
Vibrant red snapper, locally sourced grouper, and tasty gulf shrimp are almost always available in the fish market. When they're in season, you can expect to find some crave-worthy razor clams and softshell crabs. If you have a specific request, the fishmongers can likely track it down for you. Simply reach out to them at

If you don't feel like cooking, you can purchase some chef-made creations to eat at home.
The culinary heroes at Mongers know how to prep an incredible meal. Your friends will applaud your prowess in the kitchen when they dig in to the perfectly smoked salmon, rich gumbo, and jumbo lump crab cakes. (You don't even have to tell them that you didn't do any of the cooking)
You can also dine in style at their charming eatery.
When Shane Stark opened Mongers, he enlisted the help from his wife for the interior decorating. The vibrant colors and attention to detail will enchant you. Elements of the sea are scattered all across the space, and it'll make you feel like you've escaped to a quaint little beach town.
The food is even more beautiful than the interior.
Mongers' extensive menu is full of gorgeously-plated dishes. From top to bottom, you'll be in awe of the stunning sights.
Sunday brunches are pure bliss.
Brunch is served every Sunday from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm, and there's simply no better place to start your week. Mongers' low country benedict is made with jumbo crab cakes and covered in old bay hollandaise. It's served with black pepper biscuits and a side of skillet potatoes. If you like things on the sweeter side, you'll swoon over Mongers' butter pecan french toast. This decadent dish is made from sourdough bread and pecan sorghum butter. A side of colorful fresh fruit accompanies.
You can't beat these fish tacos.
Come by for lunch and savor the delicate and divine crispy red snapper tacos. Covered in a chipotle crema and topped with cabbage and cilantro, this meal is like a vacation on your palate. Also popular on their lunch menu is their refreshing poké bowl. The Mongers' team serves you the fresh selection of the day with your choice of rice or greens and one of their flavorful sauces.
Come by for dinner and taste their perfect lobster rolls.
Fish and chips, northeast scallops, and gulf grouper are also available during dinner hours, and you can't go wrong with any of them. Tack on a side of garlic-parmesan wedge fries or lobster mac and cheese, and you'll send your taste buds to seafood heaven.
This unique East Austin restaurant will leave you speechless.
