Waitress Nikki was accommodating and helpful. We shared the fried catfish dinner which has two six ounce fillets and two sides. The broccoli was cooked well, and the boiled new potatoes were just right! We also ordered the mango cold slaw, which could use a bit more vinegar. My husband enjoyed a cup of clam chowder, which had a good... More

The food was good but a little expensive. We were sat out on the patio for enjoying the lake view. We didn't like terrible table and benches! (

We had dinner here last night. The fried shrimp are great and the catfish is good. My wife had raw oysters which she said were very good. The atmosphere is great, over the water with Canadian geese all around. I highly recommend this stop.

Last night in Hot Springs, read reviews of trip advisor so off we go. The experience was very good. Sat where we could watch the ducks swim around, the old steamship off for the sunset dinner cruise (get that on our next visit) The restaurant was clean, well lit, menu had many really good selections, food was very good. Made... More

Good food but the service was a little slow. Our waitress appeared hurt in some way so maybe this isn't normal service for this restaurant. Very good broccoli salad along with stuffed bacon wrapped shrimp. Would go back.

Because we never got served! We went to Fishermans Wharf because it was right on the lake. There weren't many people there as it was just before 5:00 on Thursday, so there is no excuse for us being ignored. There were 3 hosts. We were sat out on the patio. No waiter ever came to our table even though two... More

We ate here on a busy Saturday night and the service was spotty. The waitress and server were smiling in spite of the crowd. Our fish dinners were good not great. Everything was very salty. The side dish of green beans was inedible - too much salt and some sort of vinegar sauce. The hush puppies were fried pastry tube... More

Really enjoyed this place. We sat outside with covered dock atmosphere. Long plank tables. Children can feed the ducks and geese. Seafood was fresh and well prepared. Service was friendly and efficient. We will definitely make this a repeat place to visit when we are in the area.

Having lived in the Gulf I expected a restaurant that specializes in seafood to know what's going on, not the case with this place. I ordered the herb crusted tilapia with coconut shrimp. The tilapia tasted like a piece of fish I've eaten while staying at a hospital, the shrimp tasted okay but you can tell it is artificial coconut... More
