one never ever gets a bad meal here. one also never gets a great meal. the generally elderly clientele ( think blue hair ) want no surprises and believe me they do not get any. avoid the shelf vodka at all cost - order by premium brand name for your martini. The one standout is the date nut bread, worth... More

If you want the "Any Fish You WisH" experience. eat here. A mostly 60 plus crowd but they do treat family well. The fish is always fresh and the specials are very good. Pricey for what you get.

Not a great place. Service, food and atmosphere is fair to poor. Sorry, you won't get your jollies at Jolly Fisherman.

The Jolly Fisherman is a throwback to a plainer time. High quality fish professionally prepared is a joy. The crudite platter brings back fond memories. The service is friendly and professional. Definitely worth it when you've had it with nouvelle cuisine

Dined there Friday evening, 10 August, 2012. Although a table was available right away (we were a party of 3), all went downhill from there. The waiter eyed us as 'non regulars' and his actions throughout followed in kind: a disengaged, aloof attitude during order taking, plates gliding onto the table, and a one-time passing by (yes, not really attending)...

Ate here last evening. Have always been happy with the food and service. However last eve. I ordered a steamed lobster and it came out broiled. The waiter insisted it was steamed. The manager agreed after checking with "the "facillitator". She went back to the kitchen and said that the chef admitted that the row looked black so he put... More
