Excellent seafood at a good price

Excellent seafood at a good price. Please note that listings for the Fisherman's Grill and the Fisherman's Net are for the same restaurant at 849 Forest Avenue in Portland Maine. The Net is the retail fish market next to the Grill, which is the eatery.

Decided to try this out based on reviews. We ordered the sampler platter to split with an order of fries and slaw. The whole belly clams were the BEST...each one was a kiss from the sea!!.The scallops were plump and juicy and there was an abundance of Maine shrimp. Lightly fried and not greasy. The cole slaw was fresh and... More

I finally found it and it was closed. They are only open late in the week, and then only till 6, and they had a "sold out" sign on the door anyway. It's a shame, since the other reviews are so great...

We are in Portland for a hockey tournament and had a wonderful dinner here last night. The owner stayed open to accommodate our group. The food was so fresh and prepared perfectly. He was friendly and fun to talk to. If you are in Portland and want a great meal this is the place to go. It is a very... More

This is the kind of restaurant I love. It's a very local, hole-in-the-wall with amazing food! But let's talk about said amazing food. First up, the lobster roll. My friends, this lobster roll is 80% delicious meat and 20% everything else. I kid you not. So generous, so bountiful. Next, the grilled scallops and fish. To. Die. For. Those were... More

I had the mini lobster roll and my husband had the classic roll and a "chowdah". We also got two bottles of water and our total was $45. Buns were lightly toasted to perfection and portions were generous. The rolls had a mix of claw and tail meat tossed in the perfect amount mayo. We arrived at exactly noon (opening... More

A nice little seafood restaurant with limited seating. We had the best fried clams and scallops that I ever had. The batter was light and very tasteful. The owner is from Portland and quite knowledgeable. If, you love New England style seafood as much as I do, you should plan to take in the Fishermen's Grill.

This little place, correction, very little place....looks to be the real deal hole in the wall place that you will probably pass and have to turn around, but DO TURN AROUND! The most Lobster meat Ever! I had to use a fork to eat half the lobster just so I could pick it up! And it was truly amazing. Great... More

This place is kind of a hidden gem. I ordered a traditional lobster roll, and was simply blown away. This was probably some of the best lobster I have ever had. Hard to believe this is such a tiny location. If we had been staying closer to Portland I would have definitely come back for another. The cook was very... More
