The Saltwater Fish House

The Saltwater Fish House in Langley Brings in the Best Customers
by Deborah Mahuji

On a sunny Friday afternoon, three local men who are faithful customers of Saltwater Fish House & Oyster Bar, shared their honest opinions on why they love the restaurant. The Saltwater Fish House & Oyster Bar is a seafood place derived from the restaurant Prima Bistro on 201 1/2 First Street of Langley. The Prima Bistro was the first restaurant of owners Jenn Jurriaans and Sieb Jurriaans until they decided to open their second restaurant, “Oyster Bar.” They serve fish and chips, clam chowder, lobster rolls, crab cakes, mussels, clams, an excellent oyster selection, etc.

The 3 local men rate Saltwater Fish House & Oyster Bar a 5 out of 5 stars because it’s the best place on the island when it comes to selection and quality. They say, you don’t have to just come for the oysters, but there are more options, for example, cocktails, fish’n’chips, and lobster rolls. If you have never heard of a Lobster Roll, it’s a classic New England, made with lobster, tarragon, and blue mayonnaise. Another item on the menu is the hamburger, and Dan says, “this is a local secret, but their hamburger is one of the best around.” And lastly, another dish to choose from is the Boar Ragu, a pasta dish with wild boar.

Langley seems to have gained a new place that local customers value and cherish. The Saltwater Fish House satisfied that thirst for a seafood-oriented menu. Although other restaurants in Langley had seafood options, what was missing was a place with a complete menu.
