This is always our first stop when we go to Maine . We live the atmosphere. Food is always fresh. Clam chowder is awesome. I usually get a tuna roll for lunch and we often go back for supper and get lobster and steamers.

The Fisherman's Catch would receive a higher rating if it were on Route 1. The food and service are good and the atmosphere is what you would expect for a small seafood restaurant. We've never had a bad meal or poor service. The food is...More

How anyone could complain about too much good fried seafood is a mystery to me. Friday night before last weekend open, everything was busy, but friendly staff and food was great. This place didn’t get it’s ratings for no reason. Leave room for the Blueberry...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
