Waterfront views, extensive menu and seafood is wonderful. Watched part of the Pirate's festival from our seat. Nice people and wait staff, even though they were extremely busy.

The restaurant is in the open air Fishermens Village, We had dinner here on a Friday night – they have live music on weekends in a courtyard just outside the dining area. We chose a table overlooking the stage because we wanted to enjoy the music. The band was very good, but our table was not the best location for... More

Very tasty seafood. I had the red grouper sandwich (broiled). It was a little on the salty side but still quite tasty. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the edamame salad was. Be careful of the all you can eat fish and chips though. The fish and chips on the menu uses cod but the all you can eat... More

I dined outside with a group of my friends. We were seated with a nice view of the water, and our server Angie came and took our order. When the server came back to the table with the food, she had several plates lined up on the inside of her arm. As she distributed the plates, we were quite dismayed... More

Been to VFM many times and almost always sit at the bar because the service from Mike the bartender is awesome. Their beer selection is adequate for the few taps they have and the food is good with good specials daily. Others jump in and are friendly as well, but when Mike is working everyone knows because he says hello... More

My wife and I were walking through Fisherman's Village and decided to stop in for lunch. We were seated right by the window with a beautiful view of the harbor. The menu had quite a few delicious sounding choices. I was in the mood for a burger mood and my wife decided on the California Turkey grilled cheese. The burger... More

Food was very good and at a reasonable price. Sat indoors and views of sunset were breath taking. Staff was friendly. Interior does need a little tlc as did most of fishermen's village. Would highly recommend it.
