Empire Fish Company has been Milwaukee's largest seafood wholesaler and premier retail seafood market since 1913. In that time, we have developed the expertise to procure and handle all types of seafood in a way our competitors cannot.
We specialize in sourcing only the finest fresh and frozen seafood from around the world. Moreover, we are obsessed with quality, sustainability, and customer service. All our fresh product is cut in our state-of-the-art production facility; therefore, our customers are getting the freshest product possible. We strive to provide competitive pricing by offering daily specials and discounts. We receive several deliveries of product daily to maintain optimal freshness; while allowing us the ability to fill any size order on a call ahead or walk-in basis.
In 2020, Chicago's Fortune Fish & Gourmet, purchased Empire Fish, along with our parent company, Neesvig’s, to provide even higher quality service and products for our customers. Given that Fortune has always had the same commitments to quality and sustainability as Empire, it was a perfect match. Since then, Fortune Fish & Gourmet operates the wholesale side of the company servicing hundreds of restaurants and food service providers throughout the region along with two Coastal Seafoods retail locations in the Twin Cities. Our new combined efforts allow us to offer even higher quality and more sustainable seafood options than ever before to customers all across the Midwest.
Empire Fish would not be what it is today without the participation of many incredibly special people. The expert staff possesses an extraordinary knowledge in all things related to fish and seafood and are always happy to share new recipes and cooking ideas with customers.
If you are looking for a retail seafood market in the Midwest that feels like a coastal market, we are confident you have found your place.
