It tastes just like my mom's seafood and man can you get that old time taste with no transfat. I love this place. I wish they had spots all over. They should expend please!!!!!!!

Fried fish on a friday has been and will always been a staple in my house as I was a child and into adulthood. Famous fish is the best. At one time prob 4yrs ago they started to fall off with their fish but that was briefly for about a few months. I've been going there for well over 12 yrs and I'll tell you the are not only the best in Harlem but in all of NYC and prob all of the NorthEast!

My favorite? The 'All Shrimp'. Since it's take out only and I don't eat it unil I get home I skip on the tartare sauce, etc. so that it won't get soggy. The shrimp is perfectly spiced, battered and fried. The lines can get long but the wait is quick, they know how to get them in (taste ) and get them out. Martha Stewart did a segment on them and that says a lot. Expansion is something I hope they do not do because the prices compared to the quality are the lowest in town and they would have to compensate by raising the cost of the food. Great fried shrimp! This is not seafood covered in batter this is seafood perfection.

Famous Fish is one of the Best Fish Spots in Harlem. If you visit Harlem and you like fried fish, you have to check this place out. Also great Value!

This is one of the best take-out fish dinners! we call it "crack fish" : once you taste it, you're hooked!. they should really expand to a larger space, but given NY real estate prices, that's probably not a reasonable request. If you are ever in the area, remember this spot!

the only problem is the long line & even longer wait in the smallest of small spaces.... perhaps it's time for EXPANSION for a full dining expereince ?

This is the best fry shrimp and fish with no doubt my family has been eating there for generations. Hole in the wall but you'll appreciate good food.
