On our day of visiting oddities in the area we planned on eating here. Yes, it is a 'hole in the wall' sort of place. First of all they sell fresh seafood; however, if you would like them to cook something for you they will....More

I called this place to order two 1 1/4 lobsters cooked to go. My bill came to almost $30.00. I did find out after the fact that they charged $3.00 to cook them. This should have been told to me when I called. I would...More

This is a hole in the wall with very good and fresh seafood - at fancy restaurant prices. From reading the reviews, I expected spectacular. The food was very good and the portions generous. But for the price - $28 for 5 scallops, average fries...More

Excellent seafood at a good price. Please note that listings for the Fisherman's Grill and the Fisherman's Net are for the same restaurant at 849 Forest Avenue in Portland Maine. The Net is the retail fish market next to the Grill, which is the eatery.

Great quality seafood. It was very fresh and the servings quite large. The location is small and does not offer ambiance, just great seafood.

This restaurant is very small with only a couple of tables, and four picnic tables outside. Ambiance is lacking but the food is excellent in quality and quantity. Our party of five all rated this seafood outstanding.

Stopped in last night for a first-time visit. This restaurant is truly a hole-in-the-wall with about 4 small tables inside and a few longer, community-style tables outside. What this spot lacks in ambience (there is none) is made up in freshness of food and friendliness...More

Great lobster rolls. Didn't realize it's picknick tables outside and cash only. Kids fish and chips good. We would go back.

Choice of 3 sizes of lobster rolls, no filler and low on the mayo. Very tasty and low key, some may even call it a "dive". It is worth a stop if you're in the Portland area. The menu is limited, but why would you...More
