Great ambiance & food

Went for lunch, walked in and sat right down. Great ambiance...traditional lobster pound type place. Scallops, steamers, fish & chips and lobster roll all delish...steamers & scallops were exceptional. Reasonably priced. Good service.

Although this is considered to be a very popular restaurant, we found the food too be some what average. The wait is very long ( up to an hour). Portion size a little on the small size. The Hostess we had could use a little more training on her personality skills in regards to customer service. The food is way... More

We absolutely LOVED this place. Excellent service by Heather Mac! Such a sweet girl, informative and kind. The atmosphere is exactly what we wanted from a Maine fish house. The food was remarkable. Fish and chips was huge, reasonable and delicious. The beer sampler was not only yummy... But adorable presentation. Do not miss this find!

Ambiance is great. My 10 year old grand daughter calls it "The place with the paper towels over your head". Every dish we've ever had here has been great. My 10 yr old grand daughter had a crab sandwich which she devoured, her 18 year old sister had 2 hot dogs( who eats hot dogs at a seafood resturaunt?!) and... More

We have been to Fisherman's Catch many times, and it is consistently great. If you don't want to wait in line you need to get there before 5 p.m. We were late this week so we got there at 5:30 and had a 45 min. wait. There is a sitting area inside and outside. You can order a beer while... More

We saved or visit for our last night of our vacation, and it did not disappoint. We got take out because there was an hour and half wait. The fried calamari was amazing as always,and the fried scallops were beyond fabulous.

We had a wait quite a while, but that seems pretty standard for the area in Summer. The food was definitely worth it though. The lobster roll was amazing! The clam strips were delicious. My husband loved getting the beer flight with the different local brews. All in all, delicious food, quick service, only downside is the wait.

This was some of the best seafood we ate during our stay in Wells. The lobster stew was especially wonderful and we went back to take out more the next night. They also offer a good number of non-seafood selections. If you prefer to eat outside you must order take-out.

This is always our first night in Maine place to eat and is well worth the wait. The haddock is the best, I know everyone loves lobster ( it's great too) but the fish is so fresh and prepared perfectly. The waitstaff is friendly and the atmosphere is pure Maine.

This was recommended to us by the owner of the motel we stayed at. We arrived around 4:30 and the placed was mobbed. We had a 1-1/2 wait but let me tell you it was worth it. We walked around for awhile and there are some great views around the place. Then we grabbed a few beers and waited to... More
