According to owner Joe Beter, the amazing popularity of his downtown eatery can be traced back to Huntingtons love affair with the fish sandwich... and seafood.
Joe Beter, Owner of Jewel City Seafood "When I founded Jewel City Seafood in 2000, 60 percent of our business came from the sale of fish sandwiches," says Beter. Before opening Jewel City eight years ago, Joe worked 13 years for a seafood wholesaler in Central Florida, servicing many little restaurants right on the beach; local hang-outs where the food was the priority. "Id go in these places in my suit as a seafood rep and all the guys without shirts at the bar would laugh!" Those experiences helped determine the kind of place Jewel City Seafood Market would be when Joe found himself back in Huntington. "My grandfather and his brother, my great uncle, built this building in the 1920s," says Joe. Since Joe opened his restaurant, several other eateries have opened up on the east end of Fourth Avenue including Pita Pit, Hussons Pizza and Roccos Little Italy. Joe enjoys the daily running of Jewel City and is happy to have built up a regular clientele. He bounces back and forth between overseeing whats going on in the kitchen (and doing some cooking himself) and making sure his customers are comfortable and satisfied. "Joe always brings french fries to my two-year-old, Ethan, even when we havent ordered them," says Christina Bailey of Barboursville.

New dietary guidelines call for more fish, less meat

The best in terms of good fats is salmon, said Joe Beter, owner of Jewel City Seafood Market in Huntington, which always has 12 to 17 fresh catches to sell, and more than 100 frozen. "Salmon is the highest in Omega 3s, but all fish have it," Beter said. When it comes to preparation, baking, grilling, blackening and steaming are healthiest, Beter said.He recommends baking fish at 375 degrees for 10 minutes per every inch of thickness."When I bake it, I,ll rub it with an olive oil and put a dry-rub on it -- spicy or lemon and dill," he said."One of my favorite dishes is to use margarine and crush up some Ritz crackers.Then put a fine crumb topping and garlic powder.That works with white, filet fish -- grouper, snapper, cod or haddock."Beter said calories start really getting up there when you fry a fish or start preparing it with heavy butter and sauces.


Jewel City offers high-end seafood at competitive prices

There's something fishy about Joe Beter, but that's just part of his appeal.As owner of Jewel City Seafood Market, Beter makes a business of knowing about everything from frog legs to tuna fish.And since the market's opening in January of 2000, sharing that knowledge has been routine practice.Before moving back to Huntington to be closer to family, Beter managed seafood restaurants in Florida and worked as a seller for fish companies.Now, instead of selling, Beter is doing the buying.Beter said his resume assists him in knowing which companies along the East Coast will provide the best seafood for the best price with daily shipments."It's like value price seafood," Beter said of his market, which added a restaurant-style take-out option six months after opening."We've got competitive, high end seafood with low end costs."Customers can either take the seafood home to be cooked or order prepared soup, dinners, sandwiches, and pasta dishes.A lot of local restaurants buy their meat from Jewel City Seafood, adds Beter. "Everything is made fresh from scratch," he said.Most of the menu is designed to be cooked in five or ten minutes, said Beter.As a result, everything is cooked to order.Even if a customer calls in an order it doesn't get cooked until it's almost time for pick-up, he said.Healthy eating is another concern Jewel City Seafood Market addresses by preparing everything in olive oil and offering sides like parsley potatoes, red beans and rice and fresh spinach.Sandwiches cost as little as $3.99 and the highest priced dinner is $14.99."It's low priced for seafood, but seafood is expensive," said Beter.The Sternwheeler, made with white fish and traditional toppings, is a common favorite among the public.Beter said the sandwich is so large people often end up splitting it. Menu selections can change depending on the weather.For example, Beter says a storm may increase the amount of crab meat normally available."Here, we can just change gears and go, go, go," he said in regard to the food offered.Open seven days a week, Monday thru Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Sunday noon to 6:30 p.m., Jewel City Seafood Market, offers the only fresh seafood in town."We're still Huntington's secret fish store," said Beter."It takes a while to get the word out."The Herald-Dispatch profiles area restaurants each week.For suggestions or comments, e-mail barker36@marshall.edu.
