Great food and cooked just right. If you want excellent seafood at a reasonable price the Fisherman's Grill is for you.

We visited this hole in the wall because of the reviews onTA. Seared scallops and haddock and fried clams were excellent. French fries very good. Bill for 3 with soft drinks came to $ 72. They have 3 tables inside and a picnic table outside. No atmosphere but the seafood is the reason to go there.

Not kidding. We stopped at this hidden place for a quick lunch and we had the freshest and softest sea scallops with fries, plus sodas, for under $20. It's a simple place, seating is outside only, kind of picnic tables. But the food couldn't be better.

OMG, They take an entire lobster and stuff it into a bun to make the largest lobster roll I've ever seen. Had to eat most of it with a fork! And it wasn't just large, it was flavorful. Be forewarned: it's cash only, seating is limited, and there is a long wait at the busy times. But if you ever... More

Came here around 3pm on a Saturday. We were lucky to be able to order right away and get seats easily. We got one of the specials which was a jumbo lobster roll and a pint of scallops. The scallops were very tasty and the lobster roll had LOTS of lobster. Overall a very good experience although in my mind,... More

I'll add another positive review for this place -- the fried clams & lobster roll were both exemplary. Really the only downside is that the place is very small and very popular. If you come here at a busy time you will have a wait, and seating may be taken.

I got the jumbo lobster roll and they could not have balanced any more lobster on the deliciously buttered hot dog roll with just the right amount of lettuce on the bottom. It had tons of full claws and lovely lobster meat. Whenever I go to Maine I will try to time stopping there for lunch.

We came all the way from Alaska to try the Lobsta Roll and Snow crab sandwich. My husband got the seafood chowda and I had the clam chowda. The food was mouth watering and amazingly tasty. Being from Alaska eating from the Pacific Ocean, what a difference in taste with the crab. It was worth the trip, the price, and... More

We came for the famous lobster roll, and it did not disappoint. The classic size was more than enough for lunch and it was well worth $20. The bread was delicious and the lobster was overflowing and fresh.

After reading a bunch of reviews, only one of which was really bad ("they didn't open on time and we left without eating"), we decided on Fisherman's Grill for lobster rolls. We arrived at 12:10, after noting the opening time of 12:00 on Fisherman's Grill's web page. It was closed. A sign on the door said "We open when we're... More
