What a treat! We were told the wait for a table would be 45 minutes or so, but it was 10-15 minutes less than that. Our waitress was perfect, and most impressive was watching all of the wait staff work together throughout our meal. It was almost like a symphony. The food was amazing. I had shrimp scampi and it...

We were looked over several times while waiting for a table. Over 10 separate parties were seated before us when they arrived after us. Upon asking why, we were seated right away only to be snubbed by the wait staff. We were seated for over 20 minutes without any server coming to our table. We left and went to the... More

When we entered, extremely large fish sitting on beds of ice set the atmosphere of what to expect. We were seated overlooking Ellisa, their local Tall Ship, which was docked right beside us. I watched some dolphins playing behind the ship, as I waited to place our orders. It was such a lovely setting. Beside us was a large lobster... More

Their rich flavorful Clam Chowder is the best I've had. Last visit some friends who have traveled New England looking for the best clam chowder ever said that Harry's Bar somewhere on the east coast has better chowder. But they still ordered it twice at Fisherman's Wharf. It's good stuff. As for the rest: Every time we visit Fisherman's Wharf,... More

Good food, great fast service, good value. Good choice for those staying in the Strand district before a cruise. Go here to have a good meal before you are subjected to cruise line mass chow for a week.

We got off of a Royal Caribbean cruise and missed our 10:00 AM shuttle to Houston because of the lines at US Customs. The next shuttle didn't leave until 1:30 PM. We walked to this restaurant and told them our plight. They set us up at a side table where we ate lunch, drank coffee and played cards until our... More

Brought a business group of 12 here for lunch and must say the service was great, no problem with such large group without any reservation (may be different in peak holiday period) and great service. Prices reasonable and good special. The inside and outside seating areas offer a wide choice.

Skip this restaurant unless you want bland food while overlooking a tall ship at anchor. Fisherman's Wharf was just not anything that it should be. The food was bland and the prices outrageous. For $180 for three adults and one adolescent, this should have been great food! We adults had only one drink apiece, so the alcohol bill shouldn't have... More
