Making Dallas Even Better

Mainstream Fish House Will Close

Mainstream Fish House, the cozy family seafood restaurant with a Mexican accent in Preston Forest, will close at the end of the year. It will open a few weeks later as The Hanging Halibut. NOT REALLY. It will open in January as…drum roll, please: Rockfish Seafood Grill.  What? No more bread pots? There is a foodie god. Sardines, all aboard!

    Sad, never have eaten there but if this trend contiues Dallas is going to have all dining diversity of Longview.

    Just last week I was going to eat with some friends and they just love Rockfish. I didn’t win any points when I said “Rockfish is just a Chilies with run of the mill seafood”. I pitched a fit and we ended up at Shuck’s and all they could do was btich about “Where’s the peanuts?’

    I love that place. I’m so sad to hear about their closing. I will miss their Lobster Louie and the Ahi Tuna salad.

    Mainstream was never the same after MCrowd took over day to day management from the founders. We took our seafood dollars to Fish City.

    I tried to signup for your RSS feed but it didn’t work. How can I do this?

    Does anyone have a recipe for their Lobster Louie salad and dressing? That was my favorite salad!

    My husband Mark and I met or our first “date” there back in March 2006 – I actually invited HIM out and paid for the meal – we had the best time and “clicked” he wasn’t what I was looking for at the time. We became best friends and a year later we started dating. We actually exchanged promise rings to each other at the restaurant – great food – great service – it will always have a special place in my heart.
