This place has the best catfish I've ever eaten! They're shrimp is also wonderful and tastes very fresh. I love sitting out on the dock while eating and watching the boats and ducks go by. The staff is friendly and attentive. We'll definitely return!

Great catfish with really nice seasoning. Nice patio area with fans to help keep you cool. Good view of the lake with the boats going by. They have long tables for families.

You can't beat the view of Lake Hamilton. We had good service, our waitress was very attentive. Chef loved the grouper. Sis tried it and liked it as well. I had the crab meat stuffed shrimp. Will be back this summer!

We were looking for a casual spot without a wait, and Fisherman's Warf fit the criteria. There was a wait for the deck, so we sat inside which was a bit dark. Service was quick and the food was delicious, especially the gumbo!
