Pretty view and food food!

We came in for a late lunch and had fried shrimp and catfish. Pretty decent food, excellent service and beautiful lake view. A very family friendly environment.

Food is good, some dishes are better than others but for what restaurant is that not true. Even during pouring down rain, sitting outside was pleasurable and enjoyable. Food served HOT! Staff was friendly. Price is very reasonable for seafood.

What can you say, over priced mixed with snail service and small portions. I don't go to a Fine dining restaurant for Atmosphere, I go for a Fine Food Experience. There's lots of places to sit and look at the water. Don't need to pay big dollars and still leave hungry! Must one say anymore?

Very disappointed. The service was okay. Our waitress seemed in a rush to take our order and hurry us through the meal when there was only one other family sitting on the patio. Our food comes out after decent wait only to be room temperature. The shrimp was supposed to be grilled but was cold and tasted very fishy.

Great views of the Lake and the food was good reasonably priced. Outside seating seemed to be the preference. Some wait for outside if they are crowded,

Good food, but you come for the atmosphere! Sit outside on the deck. Even in the summer time it is cool because they have big fans blowing.

Good food but nothing overly special. However being able to pull up in your boat, and sit on the porch while you eat makes the food taste much much better. Carrot cake is awesome.

Our ticket was $60 for two people just for some mediocre food that was bland. We also had to wait over 45 minutes for our food and it was not busy at the time we were seated. The only highlight I would say is that the restaurant has a view of the lake.

We love to go and sit outside by the water. The ducks and geese come up close to the deck. The food is good. I love the house dressing. Excellent service.

We ate here as a family (17 people at the table) after a funeral. For such a somber occasion, we had a really good time at Fisherman's Wharf. We shared appitizers - I barely got any since everyone was chowing down before the plates were passed. That turned out to be good thing since my meal of catfish filets was... More
