“Freshest fish in the desert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

We usually pass on fish in the desert. Fisherman's has its own fishing fleet, guaranteeing the freshest catch to be found in the desert. Preparation is fantastic, from calamari appies to grilled halibut, fish and chips, fish tacos...........we've never been disappointed. Try their Ahi sandwich pepper seared........fantastic. Friday and Saturday nights in season they have a great rock and blues band on their breezy covered patio. A great meal, full bar and free concert. We go often for a dance and fun night out!

“Fish is Excellent, Staff is Mediocre and Unfriendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

The reivews about the staff are dead accurate and this goes for the bar staff also. This is common in the Coachella Valley and you'll find it pretty much everywhere. I've been dining at Fisherman's Market & Grill in Palm Springs for many years and have occasionally been here. I usually have the Sashimi or the Fish and Chips. If you can look past the unfriendly staff, then this place is ok. However, if service is important to you, go somewhere else because you'll be disappointed.

“Once again, very good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

Each year, we take a short vacation to La Quinta and Fisherman's Market is always our fist stop. Year after year they have maintained the quality and prices we enjoy. The lunch specials at $7.99 are a great value. Going there only once per year, we would expect to have a bad experience now and then (expecting that something may have changed in the last year). But it never disappoints! The fish tacos are great as well as the mahi mahi sliders. We always find smiling, helpful staff. We'll look forward to our next June visit.

I cook fresh fish frequently at home. Not only does Fisherman's Market have great meals in the restaurant, their fresh fish is amazing!

“Not That Good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

we were met at the counter by a non smiling cashier. She took our order with no smile or warmth, nor suggestions. Bad start! Fish was not very fresh, everything was bland, including coleslaw, even the fried fish lacked seasoning.

This location IS not like the Palm Springs Location!!
