We went here for dinner on Mother's Day. All our meals were very good. The lobster casserole and seafood casserole were fantastic. Drinks were good and kids loved the mac-n-cheese side. Our waitress was fantastic. The only complaint would be some of the sides were not hot particularly the fried zucchini and onion rings.

Went to Fisherman's Village for the first time in years and decided to have lunch at the village fish market. We were so glad that we did! Extensive menu with lots of delicious choices. They even had menus for those with dietary restrictions. I was able to get a delicious gluten free sandwich and gluten free key lime pie and... More

Go to Fisherman's Village in Punta Gorda A great place to stop and talk with friends or just people watch. The service was ok and the food was good. If they tried just a little harder I'm sure their quality would improve. For being on the water you would think they would offer more fresh fish and ways to prepare... More

This place is not pet friendly at all! I posted a picture of the laminated pet rules card they gave me right after I was seated (outside). Harpoon Harry's down the pier has excellent food at half the price and welcomes our furry friends.

The fish at Village Fish Market is fresh... it should be, it's right next to a marina! I come come the school where anything tastes better fried so order your selection fried and you'll be happy. I had the grouper fingers. A bit to generic in the batter department but it was tasty. My mom's lobster salad roll had huge... More

A great place for drinks and the view is amazing. The food was very average and our server didn't seem to give a damn . The Craggy range Sauvignon blanc was awesome. For food the Turtle club is way better

Despite the crowd at Fisherman's Village, our group of 6 was seated immediately at the restaurant. Meals were a bit slow in coming, but well worth the wait! (Because I'd never been here before, I had read some of the reviews prior to going, & many for Feb/March, 2017 were not good.) All 6 of us seemed pleased w/our choices,... More

Our food was average & service that day was appalling, but hopefully they're working on improving that. The outdoor seating & views are lovely!
