Each time we go to this area we have to go to Fishermans Catch. Always a wait but who cares. View is spectacular too and the food and service are the best

Casual dining off-the-beaten path! Crab cakes, chowder, lobster...all perfectly cooked and served by a friendly staff member. Try the fried lobster with truffle sauce! Yum!

Wife and I had the Lobster dinner. Service terrific, meal wonderful. A busy, noisy, very informal place. 15 minute wait for a table, an hour before closing. Worth it!

Never been to the other noted restaurant. But the food at Fishermans Catch fresh and simple and good. Not fancy. More of restaurant atmosphere compared to a true shack
