Our Review

Peter McCarthy made a name for himself with the Jefferson Park storefront Pier 5736. Now he's brought his affordable seafood to the north side, moving into the turreted Edgewater building that formerly housed Arkadash Cafe. He's brought his fans with him too, judging from the packed room, which has the feel of a supper club, from the white tablecloths to the older crowd to the large menu. Each entree comes with a salad, potato, and vegetable, making this a good deal despite prices mostly in the $20s. Green salads were served overchilled, but the dressings are house-made. Shrimp bisque, available along with chowder and a soup of the day, was overly floury, but the fish hit the sweet spot, unfancified walleye and a terrific rainbow trout accompanied by delicious sweet potatoes. There’s a long list of appetizers, including oysters in various preparations, and a still longer list of fish, shellfish, steaks—even ribs and chicken Vesuvio, so there’s something for everyone. Service is friendly and adept, and Kingfisher is BYO while awaiting a liquor license. On Sundays there's an affordable plated brunch, and currently there's a nightly special: the chef's choice of fish with salad, potato, and vegetable for $15.
