    Great service. Cod was very salty and squash was bland 🤔 Scallops were good as were the mussels. Calamari was OK. Creme Brule served cold, prefer warm. Will go back again to check it out!

    We took our Best Friends out to celebrate their birthdays. Great chowder, the fish and chips and fried clams were very good. The service was awesome. Very friendly and attentive. Restaurant was very clean and inviting, with views of the water.

    My lobster bisque, oysters and lobster roll were amazing. My Aunts plate came with cold rice, veggies and Cod. They were bringing a new plate but only put a hot piece of fish with the cold sides. Other sides were offered and brought but also were not hot. My son's miso salmon was overcooked and the glazed side was actually sharp to bite down on as it was a bit too crisp, his sides were also cold. They did take my aunt's meal off the bill but both she and my son were quite disappointed with their meal. Note, the wait staff was amazing and did what they could but something was definitely not right from the kitchen side.

    Maybe an off night, but the food and service did not live up to other's reviews. Also, we requested seating away from the live entertainment, and we were seated adjacent to the stage.

    Took forever to get our food. They call that New England Clam Chowder??? Not a clam in it and tasted like flour and water. Just awful. Ordered the cod sandwich. Fish appeared to be old and so thick on the bun you couldn’t possibly bite in. Had to remove the small piece off the bun. Never again very disappointed.

    Food was good, could have been hotter. Due to crowd and staff I think our plates sat before we received them. Generally fine, I would go back.

    We ate outside, and the ambience was great! The waitress was extremely accommodating. The issue was the food; it was poor. We only had appetizers and then left. The mussels were just boiled in water, no flavor. The calamari were cold, so they reheated by refrying and were inedible. I love the location, but would never go again.

    WE got the Dinghy. OMG for $28 it was awful; the shrimp was old and the littlenecks were so small they may have been 1tsp worth of seafood each clam! Ridiculous!! If it was fresh and somewhat substantial then it would be worth it, it was neither! Our waitress apparently forgot to put our entrée order in, as we saw several people getting their meals that came in way after us. We waited over 45 minutes for our entrée and it wasn't like it was super busy??? Not going back!!!! The only good thing about the Fisherman is when Dan Watson plays, he's great!!

    1. Noise level was very high as restaurant filled 2. Sunshade looking west was inadequate protection for those facing that way. 3. My Scallop/Potato entree was very bland. 4. Waitress badly overloaded as the place filled up. 5. We'll try lunch next time?

    Our entire experience was poor from the start. We waited 10 minutes for a server to greet us and that only happened after we asked for one. Apps took 35 minutes to come out and it was obvious the order was never put in. Meal arrived 55 minutes after we ordered and my sandwich and fries were room temperature. I sent it back and we left. The patio did have a very nice view.

    Oysters ordered were not the oysters delivered to the table. Bake stuffed lobster for $55 would have been acceptable if stuffed with something other than bread crumbs. The peach blueberry crisp was not crisp and had an excessive amount of peach skins. The bright spot in the visit was our server Rebecca who was cordial, helpful and attentive.

    Front desk was overwhelmed when we arrived. People with reservations were waiting 39 minutes despite many empty tables. We had a reservation and got there early. We were told it would be 30 minutes from our reservation time. Walk ins were seated immediately. We pointed this out and got a table. Food was great. Service was on and off. Ambiance was wonderful

    Food was good, but the halibut on our order was overcooked and dry and the brown sauce that was on it had no flavor. The Tuna Lo Mein and Scallops Sainte Jacques were very good. Our server was very personable and made the dinner enjoyable. The drawback was a party was seated next to us that decided to bring a dog (no indication that this was a service dog, which I could clearly understand and agree with) to the restaurant that barked throughout our meal and was being fed from the table and by, I believe, the manager. If I wanted to hear a dog barking during dinner, I would have stayed home with mine

    Huge shout out to our server Elisha. I took my wife there for her birthday and was surprised to find out that they don't do anything for people's birthdays. But, Elisha was on her toes and got us a piece of cheesecake and it even had a birthday candle on it. I was delighted, as was my wife. The food, as always, was amazing, the ambience was incredible and the pricing more than reasonable. We will go there again and again in the years to come. My ask of management, though? Make birthdays a celebration!
