About Us

Our Story:

Family owned and operated since 1985

Bailey Seafood was founded in 1985 out of a passion for fresh seafood.  Started out with only one employee, the market quickly grew after customers from the neighborhood realized they can purchase the freshest seafood in Buffalo without having to travel far.  Through a lot of hard work and word of mouth, Bailey Seafood quickly anchored itself as one of the best places to get a fast and fresh fish dinner in Buffalo.

We value our ability to bring our customers only the highest quality fish and seafood products.  From Northern Canada all the way down to Argentina, we find a way to deliver a never-ending flow of seafood products to our fish cases.  We obsess over quality and one-of-a kind menu items that you won’t find anywhere in Buffalo.  Come in and try one of our famous Belly Busters or a Haddock Super Sandwich!

Ever have a Super Sandwich?  How about a belly buster?

Bailey Seafood has been family owned and operated since 1985 and is proud to say we’re still going strong because of our loyal customers.  All our fish is hand breaded and never pre-cooked.  Our salads are made fresh several times a day and our Sweet Potato Pies are made from scratch.  We work hard andspare no expense for freshness!  Our vendor partnerships ensure you’ll get only the best and highest quality seafood and meats.

“I’ve always wanted a business where I can be with my family and know my customers on a first name basis. This is what I enjoy, this is my passion.” – George Kontras, founder Bailey Seafood


Update: 2018 Remodel and Extended menu

In January of 2018,  after much consideration, we removed our raw seafood case to make room for an additional kitchen. We’ve added an extra 23 feet of exhaust hoods, plus stoves, char grills, ovens and a sauté and steam station.

Our kitchen concept hasn’t changed.  We want you to see your food being cooked, we want you to be able to select your fish, we want you happy.  You always have access to our chefs because they’re right in front of you cooking!  The new addition is just an extension of our passion to please every customer, plus it’s pretty neat seeing how a busy kitchen runs!

With the new kitchen naturally we’ve added a bunch of new menu items.

We continuously update and improve our menu and will source only the best seafood for you, our loyal customer.  Stay tuned because we have lots of exciting things planned for the future of Bailey Seafood!
