If you love lobster, clams, and seafood this is the place for you. The line is huge but it’s worth waiting for - it goes fairly quickly. Fresh, fresh fresh. Friendly staff, lovely views. I highly recommend it.

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.

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
