Had a great time with friends at this place. We got a table right next to the river and the weather was nice enough to partake in this. Our server was great. She recommended the Fisherman's Friend cocktail which was fantastic. I had the snow crab meal which was really good but it is a lot of work to get the crab meat out. Loved my two sides of mac n cheese and mashed potatoes. My wife got the crab cake sandwich which she wasn't super impressed with. She thought it was a little dry. All in all a good experience and glad we tried the place.

A bar on the river with dockage. Stopped for late lunch on Friday with a group of 9. They have inside, outside seating. Unfortunately had to tell the bartender how to make the rum drinks on their menu-mine was way too sweet. We had some appetizers- just average and crab cakes were mostly bread crumbs. Looks like they can get crowds for music or beach volleyball. In the winter only small portion of the bar is open. Nice location but could improve the food.

this is an interesting Little Fish Joint. Food was not too bad but not great service was poor and the entrance was very hard to find. They didn't have a very large menu thing to be more of a bar than a restaurant. For being a fish place they didn't even offer a fish basket like fish and chips except on Fridays. we had calamari coconut shrimp shrimp tacos crab cake sandwich and chowder all food was decent but nothing to write home about. I want it make an out of the way stop for this place but if you're in the mood for seafood and near the Harley Davidson Museum then it was great.

Located on the river, I went there for lunch with 2 other friends. There wasn't much of a food menu and the prices weren't that great. We decided to split a few appetizers....the chowder was ok, but tasted a bit like it was from a can. The smoked trout dip was WAY salty and they gave us wrapped packages of saltines to spread it on...just a little bit tacky, especially for what it cost!!! The cheese curds, coconut shrimp, and wings were nothing special, I'm guessing bought from a warehouse store.

On another visit, there was a band playing outside under a tent with a sand dance area. Drink prices were meh, on the pricey side, typical of an "uptown" type place. Overall I give it a C-...I don't have any plans on going back.

We returned to the Twisted Fisherman while on our fishing trip. The food was good and the location is great. We arrived just before closing, but they didn't give us the "you're late" treatment you often get. We had shrimp tacos and they were very good.
