We stopped in for dinner out on their wonderful deck. Food was ok. Would try again. If weather is good sit outside.

Had a nice Grouper sandwich for lunch. It came with fries. There's a limited craft beer selection but I had a nice bock. Dined on the deck right on Lake Hamilton and enjoyed the weather and lake traffic. Attentive service. Many more selections on the menu.

This is a very relaxed restaurant with a wonderful view of Lake Hamilton. You can arrive by boat or vehicle. They have a large outdoor covered deck open to the lake. They also enclose this deck in winter and add heaters so you can enjoy year round. On to the food I have been to this restaurant many times and... More

This was an off season visit so it was not crowded. The service was good and food was great. The view of the lake is an added pleasure. One visit in our 1 week stay.

Driving by & noticed dining by the lake. Good food, great view. We had Raw Oysters & Grilled chicken salad w Cajun chicken. Great atmosphere, feed the geese & ducks from the outdoor seating. Feed sold by coin machine. Nice place to enjoy their great food!

Up front, we like Fisherman's Wharf! K and I have been there several times and we enjoy the food immensely. Tonight, our experience was terrible! We went to dinner around 6:00pm and walked into the lobby where there was a gaggle of young girls at the front talking. No friendly, engaging welcome. We were escorted to our table on the... More

Wonderful view with good food. One usually doesn't expect good fresh seafood inland. The service along with the food was great, a place I would go back to again.

Excellent seafood selections for Arkansas. Oysters were kind of small but very tasty. Gave me a couple extra to make up for size. Boiled shrimp we very nice and gumbo was excellent. Will definitely return.

The wharf has been around a long time. I enjoy the atmosphere which is usually lively and this night was no different. The building and decor is worn and dated but the food is solidly in the good category. The oysters were fresh and the gumbo was tasty. Service was excellent as always. I'd recommend the deck if you have... More

Lakeside seating (and plenty of it!!), with a great assortment of fish, crustaceans and even steaks and chicken. My wife doesn't care for fish... from anywhere else! After trying my dishes every time we eat here- she now loves food that swam! Service is usually good, sometimes great, and once in a while slow if it's busy. Oh- definitely get... More
