“Scallop Heaven!!!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Fresh authentic Maine seafood served up without any frills or fuss. I got a pint of the scallops on my first visit, they were so big and juicy I had to go back for more before we left. On the second trip I ordered a quart of pan seared scallops and every single one was perfectly crusty on the top and soft in the middle. So amazing. I would give anything to have a place just like this out in LA. Get there early to beat the crowds.

“The only lobster roll worth having...anywhere”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We went to Fisherman's Grill on a a Friday afternoon and waited in line for an hour, until we left. We went home and made a plan that we would arrive the next day as the doors opened at 12 noon. We got to the restaurant at 1130 am, and there were already 10 people waiting outside. At this point the only thing I could say was that "this food better be worth it". 2 "mini" rolls=1+1/4lbs of lobster per roll, 2 clam chowders, and and order of fried clams later and I will never eat a lobster roll anywhere else ever again in my life. The staff was also amazing, even though I'm a Yankee fan these are the only Red Sox fans that I will visit many times again in the future!

“AMAZING!!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

A group of friends were on the Carnival Glory and went here for a "light" lunch. We were so miserably stuffed from all the incredible fresh cuisine. Best lobster roll EVER!!! The fried clams and fries! You guys were amazing. Best part of the entire trip. Thanks for opening up on your day off!! Can not say enough good things about this establishment!! It's so quaint and unexpected. This place will blow your socks off!!
