Very casual dining. Picnic tables inside and ver family friendly. Beer and wine also served. A large variety of seafood from baked to fried. Lobster dinners a specialty. During the peak summer hours plan on waiting an hour or more for a table. No reservations....More

Meal was very good great service and I love the view outside and the wait staff is right on the spot. Sometimes you may have to wait if you go later in the day but it is never very long. Got the food quickly.

We ate here our first night in Wells. Got the lobster roll, clam chowder, mixed steamer. We didn't Kno what to expect with the lobster roll, it came cold, which is apparently how it's served in many places, but our group didn't love it that...More

Never been to the other noted restaurant. But the food at Fishermans Catch fresh and simple and good. Not fancy. More of restaurant atmosphere compared to a true shack
