Food was greasy and poor quality. I had the salmon and shrimp and it was bad. Made my stomach upset after eating two bites. My husband had the fried oysters and did not like them either. Waste of money. Table was sticky and dirty.

Nice setting out on the patio with views of the waterway and many passing boats. At first I was put off by the industrial feel and commercial boats, oil tanks, etc., but it turned out to be quite entertaining to watch. The outdoor area is large and spacious, but there is also indoor seating with air conditioning, if you prefer.... More

I always visit Fishermans Wharf every time I come to town. The crab queso is very good. I usually stick with shrimp or the fish specials and have not been disappointed.

Great service, wonderful food, and a neat environment to enjoy dinner in. I recommend the shrimp kisses and the spicy lobster/crawfish pasta!

I had the fresh grilled red fish it was amazing. Great flavor. Wife had flounder sandwich. She really liked it. Service was quick and friendly. Manager walks around checking on customers. Clean restaurant short wait. Reasonable prices for what you get. Will definitely come back. Great view of sunset and Gulf of Mexico.

Wonderful location overlooking water and deep sea oil rigs not being currently used. Food was extremely tasty. Staff was attentive and offered to replace part of dis if I was not satisfied since I was trying a new dish - and it turned out I wanted dish replaced and they did so promptly and pleasantly. Both the waiter and manager... More
