Mmm Mmm Good

Most tasty food on tbe water. You can watch people dock their boat for the eating experience. We ordered the broiled perch, fried tilapia and crab legs. The long Island ice tea was a pretty colorful and good drink.

I had dinner here on 03/19/15, which was a recommendation from the hotel I was staying at. Overall, the place was packed when I arrived around 7:45 p.m. I sat in the bar with a drink for only 15 minutes when the table became ready. The waitress was friendly and attentive. I ordered shrimp stuffed with crab. It was unremarkable... More

Great food at decent price. Service was slow to start, but once the young man realized that no one had served us, he sprang into action. I don't think we were even in his area but he took great care of us. It was probably an anomaly. Great location, we sat on the deck on the water. Had some great... More

We had lunch there while on vacation and liked it very much. The catfish was excellent. There was quite a variety to choose from and we enjoyed the fact it is located right on the lake.

Our hotel suggested Fishermans Wharf as a good place for seafood. We were seated outside by the lake. Our waitress was slammed. I think they we're not expecting to be so busy on a Monday night. We had a gumbo,crab cake, and corn nuggets for appetizers. The crab cake was lightly fried and ok. The corn nuggets were also fried... More

This was our first visit to Fisherman's Wharf as previous attempts had failed due to large weekend crowds. We managed to get in on a Sunday evening and it was still full with people waiting to be seated. Always a good sign that the food is good. There were four of us and everyone had a different entree from fried... More

This was the best food we had in Hot Springs. I enjoyed their fried shrimp. My husband enjoyed their catfish. The only negative was the service. The server was frazzled and it took a long time to get our drinks.

Everything was great except for the service. I'm a waitress and I only tipped ten percent if that says anything! Worst service pics ever gotten and our Bill was huge bc we were celebrating

Had dinner here a couple of times on our travels, we always make a stop for lunch or dinner. On the water, there is outdoor eating when the weather is better! Good food.
