Location and contact

Fishermen's View is a restaurant, seafood market, and wholesale complex bordering the Cape Cod Canal and Sandwich Marina that is owned and operated by local fishermen. Brothers Robert and Dennis Colbert opened a family-owned business delivering a "boat-to-table" experience in summer 2016. It features the brothers' three core seafood products (lobsters, Jonah crab, and scallops) among other locally caught seafood, for both classic New England dishes and innovative seafood fare. The restaurant and market is surrounded by action, including views of the canal's diverse vessel traffic, a nearby playground and park area, and access to bike and walking trails. Be sure to catch the frequent un-loading

Fisherman’s View offers more sophisticated and varied food than typical for a Cape Cod seafood restaurant. There are always lines to get in and we have left a few times during peak season because we did not want to wait. However, in low season, the...More

They do have great starter items. The crab and artichoke dip is amazing with home made chips. Crabby patties are also one of our favorites.
