Enjoyed the outdoor covered patio. Staff was super nice. Food was very good. Slider a little dry but flavorful. Loved the cucumber salad. Looking forward to going back for apps

We loved the wonderful unique rolls we had there and my thought the rice crispy milkshake was great. The All American Bacon Double Cheeseburger burgushi was amazing, we weren't sure what to expect when we ordered it but we're not disappointed. The Riggs RR Crabcake...roll was also unique and wonderful. The Tropical Storm Roll and Spicy Crunchy were also outstanding. The staff was very friendly and helpful.More

Just not that great! Service was slow. And yes I understand being understaffed, but it seemed only our server was being slow. 10 minutes to get ice. By the time he got to us half the class was water. The hostess and food server twice...has to get our requests- not our actual server. The sushi was not good at all. I can’t believe they use imitation crab!!!! I’ve gotten better sushi at Lowe’s Foods! I will say the burger was cooked to perfection. Fries were cold. Would not go backMore

Food(Sushi) was good did not go in for the savory meats served as sushi. Got two of the specialty rolls. Big circular fish tank. Occasional gongs and chants going(had no idea what was up with that).

This restaurant is perfect when your family wants both sushi or burgers. Some people in my family will not touch sushi, but will happily enjoy a burger, this restaurant lets us all go to one spot and make all the varied tastes happy (need to...support vegan also). The sushi was fresh and tasty, the sweet potato fries were perfectly done. They also let you build your own everything for a truly tailored experience. Great local beer (Red Oak), and boozy shakes. We all enjoyed it very much!More

Been here twice now and I have been nothing but impressed. Not just the food but the servers are always attentive and enthusiastic. They might want to teach the hosts how to treat customers, because they are the only complaint I have.

The appetizers were great, the service was excellent. Kasey was amazing! Personable, positive, sweet and gave great suggestions! We loved her. The appetizers were delicious Blackened tuna nachos, crab Rangoon dip and the spicy Poke Dip were very fresh and delicious. I had the Apple...berry Turkey burger.. would not order again, on a whim tried it.. not my thing. My son had “Yo! Adrian!” And he said it was great. Moscow muleshine and Save the Tatas-tini were very delicious. The decor was a little hokey.. the fish tank was huge and the dish looked very happy. Thank you for a great dinner!!More

Look no further than Cowfish. This energetic restaurant will entertain you with their wild birthday greeting, the humorous art work and the huge salt water aquarium. The meals are incredible. This restaurant is very busy all the time, but insiders know to join the “waiting...list” on the app. You must confirm by responding to the follow up message. Once on the list the wait is very short. My family love the burgers and wraps. The service is always fast, friendly and efficient. The owner makes a special point to greet each table. A must go restaurant in Raleigh.More

We were traveling from Wilmington for a medical appointment and love sushi so we stopped in here to have a bite. Had the blackened tuna nachos, raw instead of blackened, and they were outstanding! The tuna was fresh, and the sauces delicious! Also the calamari...was terrific, and the drinks were generous. The only bad thing is the parking, had to park quite far away which was difficult for my husband to walk far (he has a serious joint disease)/ May I suggest Valet parking service as a remedy? Nevertheless, we will be back, a visit to Cowfish will now be a must each time we are in town. :)More

Took my granddaughters, who love Sushi, out for lunch. I am not a sushi person, but the burgers at Cowfish are the best in town. I had the Texas Longhorn, well done, and it was perfect. Sometimes, well done means a hockey puck, but not...here. Cooked all the way through and not dried out. The girls ordered all kinds of sushi and loved all of it. We ate on the covered patio, lots of fans and very comfortable. Service was friendly and helpful with various questions. Great variety from all kinds of sushi to salads, sandwiches, and their great burger selection.More

If you’re from out of town, as we were, this is basically on par with Cheesecake Factory or the like. Very basic chain food. I’ve had better sushi in an airport. Even the neon green wasabi was weird. We ate at Whisky Kitchen the day...before for lunch and it was almost laughable how much better it was. If you have kids and aren’t particularly food savvy, this is type of restaurant for you.More
