My husband was in the mood for fried catfish. Since we had been to this Fisherman's Wharf before, we went there for dinner. When we asked for a nice seafood platter with fried catfish, the server said he did not have that on the menu. However, there was fried catfish on the menu but we could not have it as... More

I'll preface this review with the disclosure that I am from Louisiana. If you have ever eaten seafood that is well prepared by a Good Louisiana chef, then You probably know why I disclose that and understand my favoritism. If you have never eaten Our food, you are missing out. On vacation, my husband decided he really wanted fried shrimp... More

This place was awesome. It was a big place and kinda busy. Everyone had good food and the portions were big. Everyone was very happy with the quantity and quality of the food. I wish I was eating dinner there tonight.

Happy friendly atmosphere. We were there last Sunday night. Not very busy. We sat out side over looking the lake which was lovely. I had crab bisque which was nice. My husband had gumbo dish which he didn't like. I think he is not used to that type of sea food. Atmosphere happy, good music. We didn't have fish but... More

Fabulous seafood! A little pricey but not too bad. $10 catfish. $16 grouper, $20 oysters. Grouper in Arkansas...thank you! I can't even get it in TX! Catfish and shrimp are good too. Kids can feed geese and fish. Thanks to the nice waitress for dealing with our 6 kids and our rowdy selves! Ate there 3 times for lunch last... More

My family has eaten at the Fishermans Warf several times. We've not always liked the food, but this time it was very good. We sat outside and enjoyed the view of Lake Hamilton. Our server was fun and did a good job. We weren't in a hurry and the place was busy. Misty had the coconut shrimp and I had... More

Ate here while on family vacation over memorial day weekend. Not all that many options near Lake Hamilton and even with that said, I would say this place is just OK. When we walked into the restaurant we noticed it was really warm and a bit musty. With the weather near 100 degrees, the last think we wanted was to... More

We saw this place on the Duck Boat tour. Great food and great service. I tried the chowder and it was really good. The kids spilt a popcorn shrimp meal and the Mrs and I split the Trio shrimp platter. It was so much food we couldn't finish it all. I'd come back here again in a heartbeat.
