Located on Lake Hamilton this resteraunt sports beautiful views, exceptional service, and a full bar that is reasonable! My wife and I love this place! I'm a local and eat there often! Not only great seafood, but steaks as well!

Party of four. Every meat selection was very bland taste. Salmon was like a cheap frozen that tasted like cardboard. Traded out for a boneless chicken breast that had NO taste. Veggies and salad were good. Service was good. Meat is very poor in taste, flavor and preperation.

I would give this place 5 stars but for a couple of things. First, it's not a 5 star restaurant and does not pretend to be. Number 2, it is not quite worthy of the honor. The place sits right on the lake just east of the Hwy 7 bridge. The parking lot may make you wonder where the restaurant... More

This was our third visit and we were not disappointed. Food is fresh, my wife had oysters on the half shell as an appetizer and I had peel and eat shrimp. My catfish and my wife's gumbo was excellent. another recent review said there were no hush puppies on the menu that is strange because I had wonderful hush puppies... More

My daughter and I had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant while on vacation in Hot Springs. Fisherman's Wharf has the freshest and most delicious seafood that I have ever eaten. Although there were several restaurants near our hotel, we chose to eat at this one every single day for lunch or dinner. We will definitely eat here again!

Other than having a view of the lake, there is nothing memorable about the food here. I would say it's somewhere between Long John Silvers and Red Lobster. Waitress brought hubby a Corona with no lime. My popcorn shrimp contained the veins. And no baked potatoes or hush puppies on the menu. Maybe come for a beer and the view... More

I couldn't decide whether to rate this place average or poor, I decided on average. On one hand, most of the food our group of four had was good, not great, but good, and then on the other hand, the place was dirty. The whole place looked like a tornado hit it. Food was all over the carpet, you had... More

The service and the atmosphere were great but the food was mediocre. Undercooked rice, food heavy even though we all opted for broiled vs. fried, poor selection of fresh veggies sides.

Enjoy some of the best seafood & steaks you've ever had by visiting Fisherman's Wharf on beautiful Lake Hamilton in Hot Springs, Arkansas. This is not just your typical lakeside establishment/bar scene...oh no...it's the BEST!! The fantastic staff will seat you either inside or if the weather is nice, outside on the deck. This is my favorite place to eat... More
