The Great America Fish Company is on the North End of the Waterfront area, close to where the boat launch is. Fair amount of parking so can park close to get in, they also have a separate bar, which you will see a number of local fisherman in. Overall service was very good, the staff friendly, and the ambiance of... More

Due to bad weather there were not many people at this restaurant when we were there but the staff made us very welcome and took good care of us. Food was served promptly and freshly prepared. Very enjoyable meal.

Staying at Best Western Tradewinds where this restaurant was highly recommended. As is was raining we took the advice and walked past Stax to get here. We were pretty wet on arrival due to the unusual but persistent rain. The staff were friendly and welcoming and no faults with the service. The draft IPA beer was very good and was... More

Sounds like you ordered senior portion which is a good portion of food for the price in my opinion. If you were hungry than the full portion is nearly 10 ounces of fish in my experience.(5 cuts at 2 ounces each instead of 3 cuts). Did you mention to your server that your fish was dry so they could fix... More

What a wonderful little town, we were advised to eat here, and great choice it was. 4 of us ordered different meals, and were all happy with portion size and taste. Probably the pick of all was the macadamia crusted halibut. Staff were very accommodating and friendly.

With only one bar of reception, couldn't access Tripadvisor for recommendation so chose a random place-turned out to be a winner. Our fish was mesquite-grilled and juicy, good Bloody Marys and we loved the slaw-instead if mayonaisse-based dressing, ir was marinated in oil and red wine vinegar-delicious!

Great food and friendly staff. My wife and I ordered the Cioppino, it's a large bowl with everything from the sea in a spicy tomato broth. It had fish, jumbo prawns, clams, scallops, and a large crab legs along with grilled french bread and a salad.

This was such a good place. The waitress, the waiter all very polite. They give you bread with your drinks. Great view. Cleanness all the way around the whole resturant. You get to see the bbq and watch them. Smells wonderful in there. I highly recommend this place.

Was looking for a place along the warf that would not bust my budget. This place fit the bill. Has a tiny bar where it was obvious the locals went to. Good drinks there.... The food was very good. We really wanted to try Bbq oysters but they were out... Other than that....very good food for a very good price.... More

We've been many times to the Great American Fish Co. This visit we were with 2 other couples. As always I order my fish & chips mesquite grilled, not battered deep fried like other restaurants. I enjoy the taste better plus it's lower in calories, who doesn't appreciate that! It was a busy night last night due to the Morro... More

Shrimp & fish were overcooked. Snapper filet was tiny. Clam chowder & fries were good. Won't recommend or return.
