Glad we read reviews before deciding on where to go for a light snack. The bar at Fisherman's Wharf was a great choice. Shrimp kisses were absolutely wonderful. Combine the kisses with 1/2 dozen boiled shrimp -who needs anything more

We stopped in at the Ocean Star Offshore Oil Rig & Museum. Decided to take a lunch break before the next adventure. We got promptly greeted and seated by a window view as requested. Our server was very friendly and courteous. Really enjoyed the service. Both of our entrees was very tasty and we had a most pleasant experience. The... More

I was here with a very large group of people. We had 2 people waiting on us (1 male and 1 female) and they were amazing - I wish I could recall their names. I actually thought that the appetizers and dessert were the best part. The main course was good but the appetizers and desserts stood out the most... More

We visited Pier 21 in the mid-week and mid afternoon. The patios on the water were minimally occupied by guests. We wanted a break with a view, a cocktail and light appetizers. The staff said that the patio was only available if we ordered a full meal. Had the restaurant been busy, we would have understood, but sometimes good hospitality... More

For the two of us. It ended up being a $100 lunch. Which is way more than I would usually spend. But I have to say I would go back. The view was fun. The shrimp kisses were great. The stuffed flounder amazing. I had the flounder sandwich and it was the best fish sandwich ever. Our waiter was also... More

The food is delicious. Great selection of fresh local fish! Loved the Gold Line Fish! Outside eating is nice if warm and not fogged in.

Had a great lunch on the patio overlooking the bay and the cruise ship docked next door. The shrimp kisses were amazing as were the queso appetizer and key lime pie.

Great ambiance, great service with a smile. The cocktails were good, appetizers were excellent, oysters fresh and main courses were great. I had the Gumbo too. Excellent. Funny quest...can a vegetarian get a good meal here....YES but why bother coming to a seafood restaurant? If you want to graze in the pasture go!

We ate at fisherman's wharf the night before we left on our cruise. This was not our first visit! We sat on the patio and watched the carnival cruise leave port! That is always exciting! My husband had oysters on the half shell, and he said they were fabulous! I had stuffed shrimp with crab, and as always it was... More
