“WAITED ALL VACATION FOR THE FRIED CLAMS”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

And the Fisherman's Catch Fried Clams were worth the wait. (As were the onion rings done in the same batter). Loved eating in the screened in porch -- just the right ambience for casual gluttony. Can't wait to go back.

“VERY GOOD TYPICAL MAINE SEAFOOD FARE”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Been going for years. One of my family favorites. You won't be blown away but you will never be dissatisfied either. No overwhelming portions but not small either. Good chowder,salads and burgers as well. They do their best to keep the prices affordable for the family people. The lobster roll is only ok and not overflowing in any way, it is quite typical. There are better! The other seafood is fresh and well prepared. The fries are also very average. The onion rings are fine and look and taste fresh. The atmosphere is "shack"
typical with open windows and no air conditioning. It isn't very hot inside but I'd skip the hotter humid days if I were you. They don't spend a ton on ambience. I'd try it if I were local.
It is much much better than Mike's which is very well known
and exceedingly tourist popular.

“Happy Birthday to Me”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Drove almost 1500 miles to celebrate my birthday in Maine and picked The Fisherman's Catch for my birthday dinner. Wow! Off the beaten path on the road to the harbor. Small screened in dining rooms with picnic tables. Super friendly and efficient staff. Very busy but only had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. Husband had lobster and enjoyed every bite. I had the lobster pie. It was absolutely fabulous!!! Wish I could return every year.

“First time diners!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Have passed this restaurant many times on my way to another spot up the road. This time, other restaurant was closed, new name and undergoing renovations! So, returned to Fisherman's Catch and was not disappointed. The service was very good and the food was great. The fried food was so light crispy and the desserts were good. I will definitely stop here again when in the area.

“Great and plentiful meal of sea food.”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Fisherman's Catch is a great seafood restaurant in Wells, Me. Casual dining at picnic tables with paper towel holder above table to insure clean hands and quick clean up. Good to go off hours, late lunch and early dinner. Food is worth waiting for and the orders are more than adequate, with plenty to take home for later. Good value!
