Great clam chowder

Went to the Friendly Fisherman and had a bowl of clam chowder... It was very good and a very large bowl. Lots and lots of clams.....Good service also. Had a nice view of the water.

I think this is typical fried seafood restaurant. I will say that they have done a good job with the coating, better than most. Disappointed in the attitude of the hostess. You only have one chance to impress people who come in to your restaurant and they should be the friendliest people on your staff.

Our group of four adults and two children enjoyed a very tasty dinner here. We started with stuffed mushrooms and mozzarella sticks and both were very good. My husband loved his pound of fresh tail-on shrimp. My shrimp and scallops dish was delicious. Service was very prompt and attentive. This is located in the Johns Pass area which has so... More

My husband had the blackened grouper with baked potato, slaw & fritters. Lunch portions a tad on the small size. We had a very nice attentive waitress. Busy restaurant... More

It is right at the pier facing the water. We thought location was great. Waitress was a trainee but we had great service. Food was a bit on the expensive side but it was expected. Portions was generous and my fish and chips was not greasy at all and fries were very crispy. I was afraid of thick greasy batter... More

I did not think the prices were too out of line for being located on the boardwalk. I have a large family of six and we still made it out of there for less than $70.

Had to have grouper here, based on local advice, but wish we had not. Tasty cole slaw and very good clam chowder, but on the whole, not impressed. Had the grouper three ways among our group of four and none of us was wowed. Prices are high even for this area.

Great atmosphere on a cove right on the water. Birds are aggressive though. Great food, nice location.

We had the shrimp boat and you got alot of shrimp in this. It was a nice place to sit and eat and socialize. It was very chilly in there though.

the fish here was very good, and if you want a relaxed meal this is the place to go. It is a family restaurant and very popular the portions are large but that is to be expected in America. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful.
