Coleman's Fish Market

2226 Market St., Wheeling, WV - (304) 232-8510
Coleman’s fish sandwich is simplicity itself: two pieces of soft white bread holding a cluster of steaming hot fried-fish filets. It is delivered across the order counter, wrapped in wax paper; then you find a table somewhere on the broad floor of the renovated century-old Wheeling Centre Market House, unwrap it, and feast!

There's no fish fresher, no sandwich better than the one made by Coleman's.  The crunch of these filets, seen in extreme close-up, is one of the most appetizing sounds on earth.  And the taste ... and the aroma:  forget about it!

Joe Coleman holds up one of the big filets of fish that will soon be cut into smaller filets to be breaded, fried, and sandwiched.

That's Joe Coleman, current owner of the fish market, in the foreground.  The formidable gent pictured behind him is Joe's grandfather, who started the market in 1914.

A rare photo of Coleman's -- without a long line of people waiting to get their sandwiches.

Coleman's is a highlight of the historic downtown marketplace.  The market and the area surrounding it are worth a tour.
