Specializing in the freshest sustainable fish and seafood in Chicago!

Here at Dirk's Fish, I have taken my 40 years of experience in the fish and seafood business and expanded and enhanced the tradition of great products and dedicated personal service.

We're still here and going strong!

As we go into our fifth year, all of us here at Dirk's want to extend our thanks and appreciation to all of our customers, old and new. We certainly could not do it without you! Our customers make our day - every day - and we hope we can make yours too. We have had a successful first year with many accolades, including "Best Fish Shop in Chicago" from Chicago Magazine. We have been featured in the paper, on T.V., and even on the radio with Dean Richards. Check out the What's New Page. None of this would have been possible without you, our loyal customers. Thanks again and we look foreword to seeing you at the shop.

The one that didn't get away!
My Wife Terry (of Cuban descent) is a great culinary inspiration in quite a few of our selections.  She has fine tuned many of our marinades to perfection. Her Ceviche is truly awesome!  I am truly grateful and proud of all of her contributions to my shop
