Always have a good time at Fathoms. Good food, good drinks , friendly wait staff. Love sitting on the deck and watching the boats go by.
We’re dying here at least 3 to 4 times a month and bring our friends and they all love the place and the food see you again soon
Great reprieve on a Friday night. Oysters were fresh and delicious!
My husband and I typically enjoy dining at Fathoms, we are somewhat regulars. Unfortunately, this was not the case this time.
Our server took at least 10 minutes to first come to our table. After she took our drink order, it took quite some time for our drinks to arrive. Unfortunately, my husband ordered Corona Extra, and was served a Corona light. I ordered a raspberry Mojito, it was very disappointing, I did end up sending it back. As we have been here so many times, we did notice one of the regular bartenders, who is excellent and makes amazing drinks, was sitting as the host for the restaurant. We understand times are different now due to Covid, but this was a very disappointing evening. We ordered six oysters as an appetizer, and unfortunately they were very watery, which they typically are not. Drinks service continued to be very slow. Luckily, when our entrées came, they were very good and as ordered.
Had a reservation and was told to leave without any notification. Employees act like you owe them something for being there. As a frequent business traveler I don't think I've ever been treated this rude. Abandon all ye who enter here!!
Great food, great staff! Loved our clams casino and Ahi Tuna! Seafood platter was the bomb! Drinks were generous! Thanks for a great night out and that bar seating feeling!
Excellent! They are very mindful of the social distancing. We had chowder/onion soup, appetizers: clams casino, fresh crusted sesame ahi tuna, and we had fried clams. Everything was fresh and delicious.
Great service great view sorry the outdoor season is coming to an end
Awesome time and the waitress was the best.
We had a 4:30 reservation which we had to wait an additional 30 minutes for. However, the menu selection was great food fantastic. Beautiful view of the harbor!
wife had clams i had fish and chips both were real good sat out on the deck. server was real nice and fast. always liked this place food has been up to par service has always been good
Great place. Love looking out at the boats, the bridge and the water.
1st visit to this place. Waitress was attentive and cordial. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Only gripe would be that we accepted outside seating, as host said it was heated??? Don't believe that was the case at all. Anyhow, it was a pleasurable experience and would definitely consider a return visit.
Love this place! The food and service never disappoint! Advice: When the weather permits sit outside on the deck for a gorgeous view of the sunset!
Delicious food, with service that really cares. My mom's order was just a pizza and it was a little on the dark side (overcooked a bit but not burnt) it was ok to eat but before she got through a slice they brought out a whole new pizza cooked perfectly and apologized about the first pizza. We didn't even complain about the first one, they were aware and fixed it which was commendable. If it's nice out especially, eating out under the covered deck is awesome!
Food was delicious, as usual. The waitress even gave us a dessert on the house because we were celebrating a birthday!
Food was good and reasonably priced, especially for a place on the water. I had the Mozambique Scrod....fantastic!! Trump 2020
Felt rushed , every one was running around
Nice visit to fathoms. My husband loved his meal! My meal was also delicious and so was the sangria. Great deck seating and ambiance
Always meets expectation
Reservation made, and we were promptly seated outside.
Service was fantastic and safe
Food was delicious
Perfect dining experience
Easy to use online app for making reservations. Accommodated our request for table location.
The steak tips were a little tough.
I had to send my plate back because they gave me a vegetable I didn't ask for and couldn't eat.
I ordered a meal to go when I ordered our meals and she forgot to put it in. So we had to wait an extra 15 to 20 minutes.
So good. All four of us were more than satisfied. We ate outside on the sheltered patio looking out towards New Bedford Harbor...the food was wonderful, moderately priced and exquisitely presented. Social distancing was enforced. Someone wanted to add a fifth chair to a 4 seat table, and he was not allowed to, as it would not have met the six foot distancing ( he would have been in the aisle, essentially) . Have been before a couple of times, and would def go again.
Reservation ? Apparently that’s not a thing here. 7pm reservation seated around 7:25. When asking about having a 7 pm reservation I was told the time is just a suggestion not a confirmation and if we didn’t have a “reservation “ we probably wouldn’t have been seated at all. Food was okay but not to the point of waiting more than 15min. The waitress was good and the food came out fairly quick.
Outstanding food and service...the view is great also...ate on the covered deck...plenty of time to relax and eat...try it ,you will like it!
Fathoms always delivers excellence with their menu and staff! Great place to eat and relax!
The food was good.
Good pub food for good price. Not great but not bad either.
In my opinion this is the best restaurant in the City of New Bedford. The food is consistently delicious and the drinks are worthy of the price. Had the prime rib, end cut, this time. It was perfectly cooked and absolutely satisfied my craving.
Great food with family and toasty on the deck. Service great bper usual;
Doing their best to be compliant w social distancing. Customers not so much. Reservations necessary on Fri and Sat, even so 30 min wait. Just expect it, not their fault.
Food was very good. Service excellent. Recommend scallops wrapped in bacon. Awesome.
Always a great place to have a bite and a beverage on the working waterfront!
We waited 45 minutes for 2 waters and an adult beverage. Piece of fish was very overcooked. We go there at least once a week but not sure when we’ll be back. Food and service is usually good but not last night
Never dissapointed. Always a great dinner. Great service
Making online reservations is way easier they take you right in. The food and drinks were awesome and we got to sit outside near the water. I didn’t want to leave!
the staff , food, management atmosphere always the best every time I go,, there was a party of 14 girls there this time celebrating someone's birthday made it even a greater experience, ,, staff was outstanding,,,,,,see you again soon,, I tell all my friends and family to go this is our favorite place to eat...
It was a little chilly on the deck, but the food was delicious as always and our server was great!
Nice dinner and drinks for our party of four before the weather changes. Deck dining great but the dubs glare was tough. Some seating needs to accommodate for that.
