Jumpin’ Jay’s Fish Cafe

NOTE: Jumpin’ Jay’s is closed for the winter season. It will reopen in early spring, 2021.

Located just two blocks down from Market Square, Jumpin’ Jay’s has become an overnight institution among locals who appreciate exceptional seafood.

The quality of fare is unsurpassed, with fish arriving daily from local fisherman as well as some exotic catches from locations such as New Zealand and Ecuador. Four to six varieties appear on the ever-changing “Catch of the Day” menu, complemented by your choice of a gourmet sauce or marinade.

The standard menu offers a more traditional flavor, including Maine
Crab Cake, Haddock Piccata and the popular Linguine in White Clam Sauce. The atmosphere is casually hip, with no pretense.
