This West Virginia Seafood Spot Offers Fresh Food Straight From The Chesapeake Bay
Comprised of a fascinatingly eclectic assortment of boutique shops, restaurants, and stores, the
Capitol Market in downtown Charleston, West Virginia is well worth a day of exploring. And at some point during that day of adventuring through this one-of-a-kind little shopping center, be sure to make your way to the Fresh Seafood Company, a small but mighty seafood market and restaurant with the freshest of fresh seafood (like Chesapeake Bay oysters!) tucked away in the Capitol Market of Charleston, West Virginia.
It's amazing what can fit into 250 square feet of space. Take The Fresh Seafood Company in Capitol Market, Charleston, West Virginia, for example. This little market and restaurant has a small footprint, but it makes a big impact. As the restaurant proudly proclaims, it's "a little space with BIG taste!"
The Fresh Seafood Co features an extensive fresh seafood lunch menu.
The "Home of the Big Fish Sandwich" (a savory seasoned cod fillet, deep-fried and served on a croissant, one of the best fish sandwiches in Charleston), this restaurant also boasts made-in-house tartar sauce, coleslaw, and hushpuppies that come with each made-to-order lunch.
In addition to eating in, check out the sale case stocked with fresh, flash frozen fish that is flown into Charleston directly from the Atlantic Coast (Boston) and the Gulf (Florida) three times a week. There's also oysters and scallops direct from the Chesapeake Bay.
And, in addition to greeting every guest to their little market with a smile, the folks here will even share their favorite seafood recipes if you're unsure of how best to cook one of their products.
Hosting an event? Wow your guests with high quality seafood from The Fresh Seafood Company, plus add one of their famous crab and cheese balls to the menu. Or opt for a shrimp tray with The Fresh Seafood Co.'s secret recipe cocktail sauce. Around the holidays, The Fresh Seafood Company even stocks smoked salmon platters.
Even if you aren't a seafood lover, you'll still find something to enjoy here, because The Fresh Seafood Company also sells all beef hot dogs on steamed buns with homemade chili and slaw and freshly cut onions (West Virginia style for the win!).
