Went to The Clipper before Nick Lowe Quality Holiday Revue show @ The Narrows. Wednesday, late afternoon, sat right down. Very clean & neat dining room. Great waiter service from John. Ordered Shrimp Mozambique, it was terrific. Would return again.

By far my favorite restaurant. The steak is amazing and my husband says the liver is even better. I get the chicken and little necks and it is always to die for. Portions are huge and the service is great. John is my favorite waiter. Remembers us everytime we go in. And if my kids aren't their he remembers their... More

Stopped in for lunch while in Fall River touring Battleship Cove and Lizzie Bordens house. Had to try Portuguese food while here. Service with a smile even though he was the only server. He was a seasoned professional and handled it well. Thanks for an authentic experience.

Lately my husband and I have been eating at various Fall River restaurants and I am hooked on dining in the city. The Clipper is yet one more good reason to dine in F.R. Absolutely one of the best meals I have had to date ANYWHERE. We started the meal with the traditional kale soup ..just like Vovo's but better!... More

Very friendly and meal was great. Great Portuguese food never rushed through your meal and they have specials ask well. The portuguese soup is excellent and always a little different. Easy parking

As several reviews have indicated, the outside facade does not provide any insight to what type of food served inside. Our friends who are locals to Fall River (and just got back from the Azores) said that the inside is what you would see in a traditional Portuguese restaurant. Our server was very attentive and answered our questions about the... More

The restaurant did not look like a Portuguese restaurant on the outside, nor did the name give it away. I was so pleased to have picked this restaurant while in Fall River. The food was really, really good. The waiter, John, was very helpful with the wine list and answered my questions about the menu as if my husband and... More

You would never think that this is a Portuguese Restaurant from the name. However this Fall River Massachusetts restaurant serves some of the best Portuguese food outside of Portugal. The staff is friendly and doesn't rush you. They have a very good wine list. I had a form of Portuguese pork and potato stew that was excellent. The restaurant is... More

The food is prepared in the old fashioned manner of the Azores. Derek and him father bring a taste of the old country to the states. They have been cooking meals in this fashion for many years. The shrimp "clipper" style is out of this world If you like liver this is the best if you don't care for liver... More
