Pittsford Seafood Market was a fish market attached to Pittsford Seafood restaurant. They offered a wide selection of fresh fish and shellfish. The prices were reasonable and the staff friendly and helpful.
Pittsford Seafood Market: This curiously named fish shop — it's actually in the city, not Pittsford — also has fresh and fried fish. It adds the twist of Eastern European canned goods and candies. See a recent menu for details.
Alas, Pittsford Seafood Market closed in January 2012, with a sign on the door thanking customers for many great years in business.

2006-09-22 18:49:23 Great fried seafood served here, there's not much seating but it's never busy. I highly recommend the tuna burger cajun style. I prefer going here than any formal seafood restaurant. —TravisOwens
2006-11-12 12:36:51 The Market makes the BEST fish sandwich in Rochester. You have to get it with cheese. He makes his own tartar sauce and though I have no clue what the secret ingredient is, it is fabulous! They hand dip the fresh fish right there and then serve it on a hunk of fresh french bread. We love the soups and bisquest too. Our fave is to have lunch there on Friday afternoon and top it off with a Greek beer right out of the cooler. —DeniseElliott
2007-11-02 22:33:43 We just stopped by for dinner, and found that the restaurant is closed, though the market (and casual dining) are still open and busy. There's a realtor's sign in the restaurant window, and the guy that took our order agreed that it's closed for good.
That said, we had a marvelous dinner anyhow — they'll cook any of their fresh fish for only $1.00 more than its raw price. The Artic Char (a salmon relative) was delicious baked with a sprinkle of spices (and half the cost of a fancy restaurant!)
Can't wait to go back and try many more varieties! —TracyLogan
2009-01-26 20:03:17 I've been meaning to try this place for a while, and I wasn't disappointed! I took my mom, who's very picky about seafood, and we split a fried oyster plate and a bowl of seafood bisque. Both dishes were perfection. The soup had big chunks of fish in every spoonful. The place came with delicious coleslaw, perfect potato, and crisp, fresh oysters golden-fried. We polished it off with some baklava for dessert. We came back the next day for some beautiful, fresh monkfish to take home. We'll definitely be back!! I can't wait to get some hush puppies. —AliMcGhee
2009-01-26 21:24:19 We buy fresh seafood here from time to time. Yum. They have dry scallops, which are what you want for searing; they can be hard to find elsewhere. —MariahBetz
2011-12-12 12:55:41 good selection, decent quality for being inland —jberna
2012-01-07 08:25:56 What happened? Our favorite source of fresh fish for many years, and Nick such a wonderful, friendly guy. They're suddenly gone?! —JamesBudd
2012-02-06 12:00:36 What happen? I loved this place. —MartinWright
2012-02-06 15:23:20 My guess is the business was 'sinking' because they couldn't make enough 'clams'. Places like this often 'flounder' in a weak market. Customers get 'shellfish' with their money, and if the 'groupers' go away, you're left with walk-ins as your 'sole' business. Maybe the owner got 'eel', or maybe he just got tired of all the 'abalone', but I'll bet that his 'perch' there on Monroe was just too far from the 'pike' to get enough customers. —Alex-C
