I've always liked their food!. I always enjoy eating at Tower Bay! Their food is good and the price is right. I like the atmosphere and the service is friendly. I like to have my fish and chips once a week and Tower Bay does it for me!
Ugh.. I only went once, and maybe they were just having an off day, but the food was so bad I'll never go back to find out. All we got was the fried cod, chips, and hush puppies, which all seem hard to ruin, but ruin them they did. The fish itself was alright, but the fried batter was tough and chewy. The hush puppies were nice and crispy outside, but still uncooked on the inside. The fries were limp and soggy, and had seemingly been cooked some time before the rest of the food. Other than the awful food the place was great, fun casual atmosphere, friendly servers, and a nice location in the tower district.
Fresno may be a good distance from the coast, but you wouldn't know it inside the Tower Bay Fish Company..
The ambiance at Tower Bay Fish Company is much like that of a little cafe on the southern coast of California, especially when you're sitting on a pine barstool facing a large tank filled with tropical fish. The menu consists of various fish cooked in a variety of ways: deep-fried cod dipped in their famous micro-beer batter; char-broiled rainbow trout, catfish, halibut, and salmon; or a combination of mussels and clams steamed in Anchor Steam beer. These can be paired with a side of hush puppies, fries, cole slaw, or potato salad to make a meal, but for those who aren't keen on seafood, there are options for them too: a sourdough burger with jack cheese, a broiled chicken sandwich, or a grilled chicken Caesar salad. These feasts are served up in a casual, order-at-the-counter fashion, and the bar is pretty cool too. On days when Fresno temperatures are close to those on the coast, the patio's a good place to dine as well.
If you order one thing:
Try the steamed mussels and clams.
