“Wowzah!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

hadn't eaten here in along time. We were just going to stop by for a drink and move on. When we saw the meals going by our table we had to ask diners how was their meal. All responses were positive so we asked for menus. Nice selection and we just couldn't resist. I enjoyed the salad with blueberries and the shrimp wrapped in bacon...yummo, and my husband had prime rib that was seasoned to perfection. To top it all of we had the most beautiful sunny evening and the most fun waitress, Nicole! If you read this Fisherman's Wharf, thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

“Worst Meal and Service Ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We went to this restaurant last night with some friends we haven't seen in a year. We suggested this restaurant because we had such a delicious meal last year (we visit Boothbay Harbor twice a year). First of all we were there after a bus group (but they were almost done eating) so we kind of knew that we had a little wait. The waiter (Jay) kept on messing up. We told him who would be on the checks (one party of 2 and one party of 3 and we pointed out who they were) Even after he repeated which was which he still got the checks wrong. The wait between our appetizer and our dinner was long and the food was warm to cool. My potato was so overcooked I only got 3 bites out of it and it looked like it had a tan inside. My Husband and I had stuffed haddock which was overcooked and very dry and the meal was not hot. The friends that we invited had decent meals but the waiter got the man's meal wrong (messed up the steaks with another friends surf/turf, he was to have prime rib) and the waiter never came back to check on us for a while. When we got the checks, he still got them wrong and had to get his attention to have him correct it. Our friends had to wait again because he didn't put the slip to sign for his credit card. We don't go out to eat much, but when we do, we expect to have a decent meal and service. This was the worst meal I have ever,ever had and as of today, would not go back. Very disappointing.

I am tremendously sorry for your experience last fall when you dined with us. We have an entirely new restaurant staff this season, and we would love a chance to show you the level of service and professionalism that we strive to offer our guests. Though I would understand if you don't, I truly hope that you will allow us a second chance should you be in the area again.

“They blew Restaurant Week”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We started the restaurant week by going to Fishermans for a haddock dish that was on their website as well as the local newspaper specially prepared for the week. It wasn't on their "restaurent week" menu. We then read on the web site that a different separate menu was specific to last weekend, and that what was published, will be back for the full week. Went back a few days later and NO, same ol, same ol menu. Apparently the chef ordered the wrong ingredients. These would be the ingredients needed by the chef, for the chefs menu. And the chef couldn't fix the error. Can you imagine. So we foolishly stayed anyway. My prime rib was ordered medium+ and it came rare. it went back, and it came again a little less rare. I took care of the waitress who was excellent. But the kitchen is in trouble at Fishermans Wharf.
