From the outside we didn’t know what to expect, however the interior/ styling of this restaurant is amazing. We all ate warm buttered lobster roll, was heaped with lobster that was cooked to perfection. The friendly waitress explained that the fish is caught by the...More

One of the most celebrated restaurants in the area. The advantage of having their own fleet of boats and marketplace, guarantees fresh. The kitchen then creates quality dishes that will have everyone at your table wanting to share. I enjoyed one of the best fish...More

They do have great starter items. The crab and artichoke dip is amazing with home made chips. Crabby patties are also one of our favorites.

Fishermen's View is a restaurant, seafood market, and wholesale complex bordering the Cape Cod Canal and Sandwich Marina that is owned and operated by local fishermen. Brothers Robert and Dennis Colbert opened a family-owned business delivering a "boat-to-table" experience in summer 2016. It features the brothers' three core seafood products (lobsters, Jonah crab, and scallops) among other locally caught seafood, for both classic New England dishes and innovative seafood fare. The restaurant and market is surrounded by action, including views of the canal's diverse vessel traffic, a nearby playground and park area, and access to bike and walking trails. Be sure to catch the frequent un-loading of the Colbert brothers' three fishing vessels at the nearby dock and winch provided by the town of Sandwich! As fishermen working in the area for over thirty years, Robert and Dennis Colbert are excited to build a space for the local community to enjoy fresh local seafood with a spectacular view!
