    Tried E & S Seafood and was impressed. Every item was cooked perfectly. We started with a scallop appetizer, which was four nicely flavored scallops, on a toasted bread with tomatoes. A very good start. Salads were very good, nice dressings. Entres were truly amazing. Perfectly cooked and flavored, lightly breaded, with a nice dollop of sauce to complement the seafood. We had walleye and halibut. Sides were nicely done also. The asparagus was cooked to exactly the al dente crispness required. Service was very good also. Prices were about $30 per entree. Excellent seafood restaurant.

    My wife and I went for lunch and were very happy with Giovanni's food prep. I had the fish tacos and green rice. The tacos were good and the rice had some heat. My wife ordered New England clam chowder and it was delicious. She also had a grouper fish sandwich. I had a bite of her sandwich and thought it was really good. Prices are reasonable. The sign outside the strip mall reads E&S seafood market, it does not say Diamond seafood. In case you decide to visit.

    Another fabulous dinner! The food, staff and entertainment make this restaurant consistently great. The owner/chef visited our table multiple times. We LOVE this place!

    Stopped by for lunch during a bike ride with my wife and had a great lunch. I had fish tacos and my wife had a crab cake sandwich. Quick friendly service and you could watch him cook it in front of you. Prices also very reasonable. Certainly not the fanciest place but a great stop for good fresh fish and a nice lunch.

    This is one of those "I've driven past it 100 times and didn't even know it was there" kinds of places. About as unassuming as it gets, but they have phenomenal fish sandwiches. They offer just a few varieties, but each one is done extremely well, so I don't mind the small menu. I've heard the dinner options and the fish tacos are good as well, but I've had just the sandwiches so far. It looks like it's also a great place to buy seafood for your home use as well, almost like a seafood deli. Lots of room for seating and a decent view of the Fox River too.

    Lunch here is fantastic; everything is always fresh, tasty and done well. The daily soups are great and the price is decent, seeing how its fresh seafood, there is no better place for fish in the vicinity.

    On a weekly basis. I am either eating here or picking up fish for dinner. To me there is nothing better than having a local fish market in town. They have an excellent selection of quality fish. Lunch and dinner are fantastic.

    Well, my lovely wife and I FINALLY dined here last Saturday night with two other couples, and as much as I've raved about the freshness of the "take-home" seafood, the dining experience was even more wonderful with the careful and delicious preparations that Ernesto and his staff/family offered. The menu changes weekly and, as other have mentioned, you can also request anything from the fresh seafood case to be custom prepared. So it was with my Grouper and mango salsa over steamed vegetables. Scallops, Walleye, Salmon, everything our table ordered was perfectly cooked and plated. Lucky for me, Ernesto still had several of those cantalopey Pacific coast oysters on hand that were the perfect opener for the rest of our meal. Even luckier, no one else at our table likes oysters, so they were ALL mine! The smoked salmon appetizer was also great. ONE NOTE: Diamond Seafood is now "E & S Seafood" on the sign above the door.

    I ate lunch here with a large group recently. The waiter was excellent and the food was delicious. I had the blackened grouper sandwich and it was fantastic! As others said, it is not Diamond Seafood anymore.

    A hidden little gem with an always changing menu, Diamond Seafood is worth exploring. The menu is extremely limited (2 apps and 3 entrees to choose from) but the options were very tasty (ceviche and lobster was amazing, red snapper just okay). Some items (like oysters) aren't on the menu but if they have them in house, they'll prepare anything you like so check the chalk boards!!! Also, Diamond is BYOB and doesn't charge a corkage fee! The atmosphere is just okay. It feels like you're having dinner in your Aunt's kitchen as it seems the entire family (kids included!) is helping to serve everything from bread to water to entrees. That part is great but one child was dressed in his (hopefully not post-game) soccer uniform and another server was wearing flip flops! Not the end of the world but I would have preferred a little less of the "at home" feel. We will definitely be back!

    My wife, toddler son, and I were in South Carolina last year and really enjoyed the fresh and expertly prepared seafood selections. It had been so depressing to come back to the midwest and be stuck with paying for average "restaurant-chain" seafood. That is of course until we heard about E&S Fish Market (formerly known as Diamond Seafood). We have been there for lunch several Saturdays this year already. It feels as if this is our private little "fisherman's warf" in our backyard. We have not been to a dinner service yet, because we have been that happy with the lunch selections, price, quality, and unpretentious feel of experience. We always have a habit of purchasing a fresh selection for us to prepare at home later in the evening. We do plan to find a sitter for the little guy so that we can come by for one of Ernesto's dinner services, because his FB posts look so amazing!!!!!! I have had the blackened grouper sandwich, salmon burger (I hate salmon but this is actually quite wonderful), halibut, crab cake, and the fish taco which were all out of this world (or at least way out of the midwest). This weekend I know that I am going to get the scallops for lunch because I saw them being prepared for another customer last week and I was jealous. I would love to see E&S on the TV show - Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.... but not because it falls into any of those categories. E&S belongs there because of the quality, precision, and their love of the food they prepare. This place place is a true gem!!!!!!

    I don't know if I can really write a review for this place yet considering I haven't eaten hear but have had plenty of fresh fish taken home from here. I've seen their menu and what they have to offer and it sounds good but usually I've purchased fish from here because recipes have been inspired to be attempted and usually a good fillet would work best. The people are really nice and it's a small restaurant. St. Charles really needed a seafood restaurant because Red Lobster doesn't count and we need another sushi place like a hole in the head. I know we have St. Charles Place but this place is a little more casual. It can be a little pricey but your paying for what you get here. Now that I haven't had a bad piece of seafood from here it's now time to order an entree and experience what they have to offer.

    This is a rare little gem in St. Charles. We went there last night for the first time and had a wonderful dinning experience. Everything is cooked right before your eyes. We started with shrimp with avocado and mango salsa, yum. Then we has calm chowder, one of the best I've had in a long time. My husband had mahi mahi with a crab cake underneath, it was delightful. I had the grouper with the coconut cream sauce, this was a very surprising combination that worked. The chef owner is a hardworking man that waits tables, cooks, greets guest and filets fish for customers. I will be going there again very soon, friendly staff and great food.

    What a pleasant surprise! There's nothing I love more than to try a new restaurant and be overjoyed at how superb it was. That's how I felt after dinner at Diamond's Seafood in St. Charles. My wife and I met some friends for dinner on Friday night. Our friends have raved about Diamond's for a while now. They say they have the best fish tacos around. I'll have to try them next time I'm looking for some good grub for lunch. But anyway, going in we had no idea what to expect. Diamond's is located in an unassuming strip mall near downtown St. Charles. It's a cash and carry fish market by day serving up quick service lunch. But on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights Diamond's opens their doors for dinner. There are literally 6 tables in the place with one table dedicated to a party of 6-8. The rest of 2 and 4 tops. So if you plan on going you MUST make a reservation. They don't serve alcohol so come prepared with your favorite bottle of wine or six pack of beer. They don't charge a corkage fee either. This is a humble operation that is truly a family owned business. I really thought it was extra special when our water was served by the sweetest little girl after we were seated. She couldn't have been older than 10 tops. As for the menu...it usually changes all the time. There's a limited number of entrees to choose from but enough to make even the pickiest of eaters happy. The food consists mostly of fish and other seafood delights (i.e. shrimp, crab, lobster, etc..). I ordered the potato encrusted Striped Bass. It was cooked to perfection and served with a light sauce that didn't over power the freshness of the fish. In fact, everyone's entree was prepared with care and attention to detail. It's hard to believe they can pull this off with such a limited staff but they do. I must warn you though. Don't expect to be able to get in and out of this place in under an hour. It'll be tough. Just sit back and relax with your friends, family, loved one, whatever. Most of all enjoy the simplicity of Diamond's Seafood. Appreciate the uncomplicated menu and effort and true pride the owners take in preparing each and every plate with care. I got the sense this is a place where locals tend to gravitate to. I'd say it's a unknown secret in the Fox Valley except for the fact that all the tables were full the entire time we were there. Like I said...make reservations. I should mention that despite the location (i.e. strip mall) and the fact that Diamond's is basically a takeout seafood market by day they really do a good job converting the dining area at night. White table cloths, flowers and candles, and decent lighting. If you love fresh seafood and fish and like a place where you can bring your own bottle of wine/beer then you really need to get to Diamond's Seafood in St. Charles. You won't be disappointed. In fact you'll be coming back again. I know I will!!

    The fish here is always fresh and Emesto is very knowledgeable. His fish is consistently excellent and his mango salsa is fab! If I'm having company and fish is on the menu....this is where I buy it. His smoked fish is great too. Last year I ordered a platter for Super Bowl and it was a hit!
