AC Foodie: Barbera’s Friendly Fish Market in Atlantic City


Why has Barbera Seafood in Atlantic City been in business for almost 100 years? Is it the smile & friendly banter from current owner; Dominic Alcaro? Maybe it’s his great fried flounder sandwiches? Maybe both?

We stopped in recently for one of their signature fried flounder sandwiches. Lo and behind, look who we bumped into. Man about town, ‘AC Mike’ Lopez. Watch video.

Barbera Seafood. Atlantic City. 2243 Arctic Ave. (609) 345-0671. Just across from White House Subs, Formica Bakery and Bass Pro Shop.

Barbera Seafood in Atlantic City is a classic, old-school fish market established back in 1919.

Barbera is legendary in Atlantic City. High quality, fresh, eat in, take out & raw seafood. Free parking & outdoor seating too.

“A MUST” Dominic was super friendly. Great fresh fish. Prepared well and a good price. Nothing fancy but clean, friendly and fantastic taste. A must do for an afternoon lunch.

FRESH seafood, great prices. I ordered a sea bass sandwich. It was ridiculously good.

Fried Seafood Goodness. Looking for some good fried seafood? You need to come here. They even have an outdoor patio to savor the food while it’s hot and fresh.

This no-frills fish market slings can’t-miss classics like fried seafood platters, crab cake sandwiches, clams on the half-shell and fish tacos.
