    Wow!! What a view! Bring something warm just in case, the breeze can make the patio chilly. Great wine list, and the seafood Benedict was on point!

    This is the perfect seafood restaurant. Old school, classy, great service and perfectly cooked, very fresh fish. Most importantly, they leave it alone. No unnecessary adulterants hiding the flavor

    Most amazing poke...the wasabi adds such spice and dimension than your norm...this is incredibly flavorful. The Mai Tai is strong and transports you to an exotic locale :)

    Amazing views! The bar food was fairly decent, both the clams and clam chowder were very good. The cocktails were decent, but rather weak. The bloody Mary's were the best.

    If you actually want chips with your fish just go to the oyster bar instead of the restaurant, or ask for skinny fries when in the restaurant. Potato wedges just aren't the same!

    Go to the bar on the right, rather than the restaurant on the left. The bar has a better vibe. The drinks are good and you can't beat the view!

    What happened to this place? Gorgeous location.. great everything... except the service is terrible 8 out of 10 times.. even the managers don't seem to care.. only a few good waitresses left here..

    Looks like a tourist trap but it's actually quite nice with friendly staff and food that is way better than expected.

    Check out Fisherman’s for post-beach-day food and drinks. The “Trestle” is the best drink to have on the patio while watching the sun set.

    Worst service ever. Staff is rude and not accommodating. Assumed that a large party would want to sit at separate tables and penalize us when we would rather sit together.

    Monday Night Football rules here, you get free food and cheep beer! Also, the bucket of wings on any given day = pure deliciousness!

    You can't beat their calamari sandwich. Order it with a brew and kick back on the deck of the pier overlooking the coast. Brill.

    Go somewhere else it's so filthy here and watched a server take her meal onto bathroom plus servers are eating while bartenders are making their drinks -

    The Cajun ahi is really flavourful. White sea bass was pretty nice too. The Mud Pie deserves a special mention!

    Wear sunblock in the summer if you go for lunch and sit outside, it gets very hot around that time.

    Great place to watch Monday Night Football! They bring TV's outside and have free popcorn and inexpensive chili cheese dogs!
