The award-winning Jamestown Fish in Jamestown has been listed on the market for $1.6 million, according to a property listing from Kirby Properties.

“This turn key restaurant has attracted both summer crowds and year round locals for years,” the property listing by Kirby Properties states.” The floor plan consists of a formal dining room, two bars, an open concept kitchen, excellent storage and outdoor patio with an additional bar and seating”.

The restaurant’s website is inactive and google results say that they are permanently closed.

The restaurant was put on the market last week by owner John Recca, according to a story from the Jamestown Press on Thursday. According to the story, the restaurant had planned on opening this spring but decided against it after co-owner Matthew MacCartney and Recca had parted ways.
