Great harbor front seafood restaurant

This was a fun little place in John's pass right on the water. Food was fresh and plentiful and they had a good kids menu.

My family and I stopped in while we were checking out the local shops at John's Pass Boardwalk. It was around 2 ish and we stopped in for a few appetizers for ourselves, a drink, and our children has developed an appetite so something for them. Upon looking over the menu my mother in law noticed that there were no... More

We went to this place on a Friday night andv there were not to many people inside. I wanted to eat on the Boardwalk but this place was inside. Not much of a view even from window seating, unless you enjoy people watching. The pricing was lower than other prices but when we got our fish and chips I was... More

We took our cousins to Fisherman's and enjoyed our visit. We ordered the Shrimp Dinner and the Shrimp and Scallop Dinner. Our cousins were very pleased because of the great food which was very fresh and the plate presentation was excellent. The sweet potatoes were good and the size of the shrimps and scallops were well worth the money and... More

In gem in John's Pass. Right on the pier, the views are beautiful! The food was excellent and the service was even better. Prices were very reasonable as well.

This restraunt has been open since the 1970's and has been popular ever since. Although when the Hubbard family owned it, it was much better. The food is still excellent for lunch and dinner. The last time I remember having breakfast there was several times about 6-7 years ago. Breakfast here was always amazing and I wish they'd bring it... More

I have been to this place several times and I always love it. Their clam chowder is slamming! The drinks are delish. Their fish always is fresh and nicely prepared. I love everything about this place. The thing that would make this place better would be to have the windows open up to the harbor. Will definitely come back.

The food was fantastic, but the service had more of a "chain restaurant" vibe. my wife and I had clam chowder and corn fritters as an appetizer. And split the shrimp salad and grouper sandwich. Everything tasted fantastic. And the drinks were great too!

We stopped into the Friendly Fisherman while visiting Johns Pass one evening on our vacation. We were excited to get a good seafood meal but what we got was pretty average - blah bland almost the same as Long John Silver seafood. We were asked to wait 15 mins even though the place was pretty empty. We were seated at... More

Everything we ordered was delicious: scallops, oysters and shrimps. But I had an euphoria when I've got main dish. Best seafood spaghetti Alfredo in the whole world! I was told that they make their own Alfredo sauce and it tastes like heaven.
