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.

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."

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

If you like excellent Alabama catfish this is the place for you. The town of Southside is across the river from Gasden. The lady at our hotel in Gasden recommended The Fisherman and we took her up on it. I'm so glad we went. The food was excellent. We got catfish and various vegetables and it was delicious.
