We had lunch then dinner the next day here and enjoyed it completely. Food was fresh and very good, portions above expectations. The service was very good, friendly and efficient. The harbor view was great in my opinion but some who don't want to see mothballed deep sea oil rigs across the harbor might not agree. We witnessed an outstanding... More

I enjoy the food at Fisherman's Wharf! It's always fresh, the service is good, the wait staff friendly! Ive been there with a large group for wedding rehearsal dinners and with just a couple of friends outside where we could view tbe Tall Ship Elissa, an historial 3 masted ship!

We visited for an early dinner around 4:30 pm on a Tuesday. They were not busy and we had no problem being seated on the outdoor patio by the water. The view is part of the port entrance and mainly you see stored oil rigs and boats, but by the water none-the-less. Our server was Brandt and he was efficient... More

The crab bisque is very good and highly recommended. The calamari was delicious. The seafood was fresh and delicious. The atmosphere was rustic. Had an awesome family dinner ending a perfect day.

We came here for dinner expecting great food for reasonable prices. We were disappointed. The seafood gumbo was good but we have definitely had better. My crab stuffed tilapia was the best tasting of our meal for sure. Quite delicious. Our shrimp cocktail appetizer was rather rubbery in texture. My husband ordered the crab and it was just okay. It... More

We went to Fisherman's Wharf since it was by the Elissa ship. We ordered the Gulf Red Snapper. It was very pricey for what you got: three little rolls in a lunch bag, a small piece of red snapper, zucchini filling over 1/3 of the plate and rice pilaf covering over 1/3 of the plate. Both my husband and I... More

I am conflicted about this review. This place seems quite popular if a 40 minute wait to be seated on a weekend is any indication. We decided to try on a weeknight and did not have trouble getting in. The service was attentive and friendly. Suitable to families. Our food was very good. We enjoyed the crab cake entree topped...

Having eaten here before, we had to go again. Food is great! Servings so big that we had a filling meal with just an appetizer of Shrimp Kisses and a main course of the fisherman's platter. Yum! Service wasn't as friendly & fast as we had seen before.

My kids are so getting use to me taking pictures- I almost forgot Jessica was our Awesome server and gave Awesome recommendations! Food was great! I have found with a large menu - to ask what they like. It helps to narrow down the choices! Thank you!
