If you look at the website you might think you are going to a nice, table cloth seaside restaurant. This was such an incredible disappointment. My husband and I should have known when we drove up that we should have driven out. The Trip Advisor said 89% of the feedback said they would eat at this restaurant. The outside look... More

My business group and I had dinner here on a Wednesday night. The highlight of the meal was definitely the appetizers. We had some of the best shrimp I've ever had. The chef brought out a variety of entrees and the best one was the eggplant parmesan. It was delicious! To be honest, other than the shrimp, the seafood was... More

Fisherman has the best seafood in the area. I had the blackened mahi and it was cooked to perfection with their own spice. They have nightly specials so the menu stays fresh but keeps all the favorites. The prices are reasonable for the quality. The chef always checks with you to make sure everything was as you liked.

I had the cheeseburger and fries. I don't like seafood. But my family members ate the shrimp and said that it was delicious. Also, my husband ate the chicken alfredo linguini and it was tasty with a great presentation!

I have only visited the Fisherman once, but it was a good experience. The food was tasty and priced reasonably.

The food here is excellent. They have a great chef who often comes out and talks to the customers. The prices are reasonable. Always plenty of food - ususally some left over for goody bag. The staff is very prompt and friendly.

Food was very good, although kind of expensive. Went there twice but the second time I got a little sick afterwards. Don't really know if it was their food or a coincidence. Rated it very good because it WAS very good.

I've eating here several times and I think it's just ok. The shrimp grits are really great. The kitchen seems a bit dirty (when you go up to pay you can see inside the kitchen) and the inside smells of cigarette smoke. Today as I was driving by I noticed a sign that said "#1 hamburger." I thought that was... More

Hands down the best seafood in the Gadsden area. Been going there sense they opened, and the quality of the food is consistently good.
