    I have enjoyed Fisherman in the past but this week I dined twice and found both times to be unsatisfactory. The lobster grilled cheese had dry lobster and the stuffed clams were just bread, no clams or other ingredients, the fish and chips were mostly coating- very little fish, even the iced tea was off.

    The food was great! It was a nice little ride to celebrate Mothers day. Lobster roll was fresh and juicy. We had the fisherman's platter, clam chowder, calamari, cod cakes, lobster Rangoon, strawberry shortcake and creme Brule all were absolutely delicious!

    I go there a lot , last night the food was cold and I was embarrassed, so I was extremely disappointed. I ordered a glass of Prosecco with dinner that never came. I wasn’t billed for it so I didn’t complain, the iced tea our guest had was horrible. So not sure how that brewed tea was made but she had two sips. The young waitress was very busy and was very sweet. I think it was just an off night there. I will still return because we’ve had such great meals and service in the past.

    Saturday early evening dinner, wasn’t busy at all. Waited 20 minutes before anyone came to our table of 2. Drinks came then another 25 minutes before waitress came back. Food came out quickly and was very good. No visit after that, had to wave down someone to pay. Wish the service was better but alas, they won’t get a second chance.

    The food was delicious and beautifully presented. It was easy to find gluten free options, and the server was very knowledgeable about the menu options. We could see the cove water on both sides of the restaurant and the evening light was beautiful.

    The place is great, the views are terrific. But with all the glass it is an echo chamber and the family party next to us had VERY VERY LOUD PEOPLE in it. I would recommend staying out of the raised corner unless you have a loud party.

    Tough prime rib. Suggest getting fish at this fish restaurant. Homemade deserts, but cheesecake was dry and mostly crust. Busy Friday night, but service not good. Did not fully clear dirty dishes between courses, never came back with water refill, lots of excuses made by waitress. Maybe still short staffed. Overall disappointed.

    We were randomly looking for dinner by the water and spotted this restaurant. The view was amazing, your surrounded by 360 degrees of beautiful scenery. The venue was so nice, the food was delicious and the service was spectacular. This is by far my favorite restaurant and I will be sure to come back

    A lovely setting. Appreciate the creative expression with the Rainbow Poke bowl yet it was sorely missing on actual tuna and salmon as the main highlight. A portion of finely chopped fish tartare the size of an ice cream scoop doesn’t fit this dish being sold as an entree. Very disappointing overall. The menu has changed recently with the removal of the pepper black crusted tuna which was outstanding and priced very well. This dish kept me coming back and telling all my friends. Please re-consider this item. Thank you.

    In full disclosure, this is our local restaurant, a three-minute drive and a ten-minute walk away. We are very fortunate to have such a great place to have a bite, watch the sunset, and or just enjoy the scenery. The food is always well prepared, the wait staff is pleasant and you can't as for a better dining experience.

    I was there for the second time with my husband and one of my sons. The first time we were there, we loved it. This time, not so much. My scallops were over cooked and scarce, and my son’s swordfish was over cooked and tough. It was pricey, and we won’t be back.

    Food was outstanding. The price was very reasonable and way better than Red 36, so we will be back. The service was subpar. We got to the restaurant in time, but our table wasn’t ready. We were a party of 5. No problem, we went to the bar for drinks while we waited. The man bartending must have had a bad day. He was so unfriendly and slammed our drinks as he served them. Making a mess of his own counter. Think we will just bypass the bar next trip. The waitress was nice, but after serving our order never came back to see if we needed any drinks nor take plates away which made table crowded. So we had to flag someone to ask for such simple things. Things that can be fixed. We had the great time and again the best food ever!

    Wife was extremely happy lobster was Amazing as well as everything else we ordered. Only draw back was they were closing up for the week for renovations so they were out of many things. But we knew that going in and changed our plans to make sure we got there before they closed up. Wife and her friend got last 2 of remaining 4 lobsters. Totally worth it looking forward to returning after the renovation is done
