“Big attraction?”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Unless you love to shop, avoid this place. Older, smelly, not nice. Birds were flying into the bar and stealing food from the tables.

FishVille, Resort Manager at Fishermen's Village, responded to this review, June 15, 2013
We are so sorry to hear your impression of Fishermen's Village during your recent trip to Punta Gorda. While we do have some wonderful shops, we try to have a little bit of something for everyone. Our shops range from men's wear to high-end women's wear to fun, touristy items. We have sightseeing cruises and fishing charters, boat and kayak rentals, and several yummy restaurants and cafes.
It sounds like you dined at Harpoon Harry's - the open-air restaurant at the end of the pier. The birds do love it when diners feed them; sometimes, they get anxious and treat themselves to French fries. I invite you back to dine at one of the other restaurants, which offer both inside and outside dining options.
Hopefully, on your next visit, you will be able to take advantage of everything that we have to offer.

“Quaint with some good food”
Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

A must do in Punta Gorda. You will spend anywhere from 2-4 hours depending on your food choice. Take the time to enjoy a sunset at harpoon Harry's.

“Lovely Shopping Environment”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Fishermens Village has nice little stores for crafts and gifts, as well as a few places to eat tasty food and have nice dessert. The view is nice in this open air mall and off the Bay, and boat rides are offered. We enjoy going to this mall to walk, shop, eat and browse around. Very relaxing, as well as sometimes there is live entertainment.

Everytime my wife and I have spent time at the Village it has been most enjoyable. Visiting all the shops, walking,browsing and eventually having some dinner at the Captain's Table has been a great experience.

“Shopping and Lunch”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Friend heard about this place so we decided to check it out. It is a nice size so you can stroll around and enjoy the shops. It was fun going in and out of the shops and of course buying a few things along the way. Very pleasant atmosphere. There are plenty of spots to sit and relax. There are also a number of nice restaurants. We went to Beneath the Sea and had lunch overlooking the water. Overall a very nice place to visit. Very glad we checked it out.
