About Monahan's Seafood Market

“The fish market we wish were next door”
- Saveur Magazine, January/February 2004

Monahan’s Seafood Market has been in business for over 30 years now, but everyday we come to work acting like it’s our first day on the job.

Propelled by a passion for fresh seafood and the need to satisfy our discriminating customers, Monahan’s strives to be one of the top markets in the country. Saveur magazine named Monahan’s to its top 100 Special Issue in 2004. The write up praises Monahan’s for its wide and varied selection. But we don’t like to rest on our laurels. We rather meet the challenges of the market place and the needs of our customers by constantly searching for new suppliers and hard to find specialties. Our discriminating, cosmopolitan clientele in Ann Arbor demands nothing less.

Because we are small and independently owned, we can be innovators. We can be flexible. And we can offer a wider selection and more options than our competitors.

Not only do we have a bountiful case of fresh seafood daily, we can fillet whole fish in store or custom grind for holidays. We have an ever-expanding file of recipes in the store and here on our site. We also offer a full complement of made-to-order, easy-to-heat take-home gourmet meals. And if you come by our store at lunchtime, we’ll happily serve you the daily special or cook to order any item in our case.

Founder Mike Monahan can be found most days behind the counter of his Kerrytown shop offering tried and true recipes or dispensing advice on the best seafood to add to his bouillabaisse base. But on the rare occasion when he’s not there, you can likely find him fishing a local trout stream or lake. For Mike, procuring and preparing the finest quality seafood is more than a job, it’s a way of life!
