Ate dinner with the wife. Excellent menu... Had the duck, scallops, lobster bisque, and saffron mussels. I enjoyed everything but the saffron mussels didnt do it for me. Wife enjoyed them. Duck was cooked great, scallops same. Great place for a nice dinner, but you will pay for it. Awesome place to people watch. Such a different crowd!!! But we're from ohio...

My wife and I ate at Fathom last night and had a wonderful experience. Our server was excellent and our food was delicious. Although we went in thinking we would have seafood we both decided to have the special which was lamb chops. They were amazing. We did have the crab cakes as an appetizer so we felt we had done the Maine thing. We highly recommend it to others. We hope we can return son.

The food was great but wow the price sent us away feeling like we had overdone it- The homemade bread was a huge hit- the crab cakes were awesome- everyone liked or loved their main course and the cappuccino was delish

For those wanting a place that focuses on seafood this is a solid place to go- fine dining that accommodates casual diners, this off the the Main Street restaurant is delightful.

Seafood spring rolls are must...
