We loved the service, quick and very helpful with menu. The food was delivered slow, but it was cooked perfect. Well worth the small wait time. Yummy from beginning to end. I had shrimp and grits and my husband had stuffed talapia.

The only negative thing was we had a large party so they added the tip in which was fine but when... More

I just ate at Fisherman's Restaurant for the first time. My friend, who lives here in Gadsden, took me. I ordered the ribeye and my friend had the large shrimp. My steak was good, well done, just the way I ordered it. They brought out a basket of hush puppies, which were really good too. Our waitress was friendly, but... More

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.
