“Great location / Food, not so good”
Reviewed May 11, 2010

This place used to be great. I always took my family members from back east to Fisherman's. The last few times we had dinner there the food was salty, and uninspired, and aside from the 'unforgivable' overcooked, dried out portions of fish we had, the portions were amazingly small. The chowder is also floury and buttery, not a good sign. No more, now we only go for a beer and maybe some steamed clams at the bar. It's a shame really, as it is now nothing more than a tourist trap.

“Watch the sunset from the deck.”
Reviewed April 24, 2010

This seems like this place would be a tourist trap on the ocean but in reality it is quite a good seafood restaurant. I had the pasta special with crab. It was delicious and arrived at the table piping hot. The fish special was also very good. The sour dough bread they served with the meal was very good as were the sides...veggies and rice pilaf. Definitely a great place to have dinner and watch the surfers and the sunset.

“GREAT LOCATION NOT SO GREAT FOOD”
Reviewed April 17, 2010

Great view right on the pier , Food kinda yucky . Fishy shrimp cocktail, watery clam chowder and flour tortillas with the fish tacos IMO that is a no no . Our waitress was nice but will be passing on this one next time around .

“good food...Great view”
Reviewed April 4, 2010

Had been here on a business trip several years ago...it created a great impression...so much so that on a family vacation to Southern CA. I felt compelled to bring my family, and none of us were disappointed.
From marketing perspective, they could do a better job differentiating the two sides of the restaurant... it was halfway thru my second visit that I discovered by accident that the menus were different...minor thing, but odd.
Would definitely revisit
