Columbus Fish Market is a noted upscale-casual seafood concept featuring the absolute freshest seafood from Kodiak, Alaska to Tasmania, New Zealand. To translate “upscale-casual” here, you need only apply the first part of the phrase to their service and fare, and the second to your inevitable experience while dining.
Once a Cameron Mitchell institution, Columbus Fish Market’s new owner, Ruth’s Hospitality Group, assures this restaurant will see many more anniversaries like their recently celebrated 10th. Powered by RHG’s founder, the maiden of meat, Ruth Fertel, and her half-century-old reputation for genuine hospitality and an uncompromising commitment to quality and freshness, the Columbus Fish Market remains Columbus’ answer to dining fresh.
CFM tailors its menus twice each day using the finest fish from around the world. All fish is flown in daily, which allows the chefs to take advantage of a variety of seafood options to best meet their guests’ ever-changing tastes and requests. CFM’s affair with dramatic freshness is made evident by its one and only closet-sized freezer, as well as every eight-hour investment each scratch batch of lobster bisque demands.
As vast as the sea itself, CFM’s extensive menu of over 80 freshly prepared items offers something for everyone. Crowd favorites include any of the fresh fish that may be happily prepared in a variety of ways—grilled, broiled, blackened or even a signature style like Shang Hai. To assure each meal comes full circle, CFM offers a boundless selection of fine and fair wines to compliment that perfect seafood flavor. Be sure to browse and sample the evolving custom cocktail menu before and after your meal. Drinks here are made, not mixed.
Your experience is everything to Columbus Fish Market. In an industry replete with turnover, it is refreshing to actually see the same staff from year to year. It means they are happy, which means they care about your lunch hour, date, meeting or party. This staff reflects the virtues of the company, the most important of which is not only telling the guest yes, but meaning it.
At Columbus Fish Market, it is never forgotten who’s paying the check. Time is money, and yours spent here earns interest. Their philosophy is simple and true: when associates are treated with great care, they in turn take great care of each and every guest they meet.
