The Bemus Bay Pops is housed here and they provide entertainment in the summer season. For the local person to go here for dinner it would have to be an occasion to spend your time on the lake front for a special reason or you have a sizable disposable income. The Fisherman's customer is really tourist.

I won't eat dinner here again. The food isn't worth the exorbitant price they charge. The only positive about this restaurant is that it's on the lake. I ordered a mojito, and the drink I received had hardly any mint in it; the mint it did have was black - no joke. I can't imagine why anyone would think it's... More

The food was really great and you get massive portions, although it is slightly expensive. We really enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent. You have a choice of eating inside or out, with great views over Lake Erie - I would go back again.

My husband and I took a ride recently and ended up in Bemus Point. We stopped and had a wonderful dinner at the Italian Fisherman. We thought it was a bit prices ($9 for a salad and $9 for soup); the meal itself was worth the money. The fish was fresh and the sides were great. We'd go back next... More

If you’re in Bemus Point for lunch, you’ve got to go to the Italian Fisherman and sit out on their covered side deck! The view of Chautauqua Lake is fabulous, and the food is great too. I had the fishwich; my wife had a BLT. Both were excellent. It’s not cheap, but well worth it. Service was good too. A... More

Very good - ambiance excellent - eat on the dock! Food was very good and the beer cold! Seated NY wait was minimal. Staff was very friendly as well.

Had the Tapas which was a wonderful choice. Friend had salmon and equally happy. Ate upstairs and indoors as it was hot but many flies that were annoying but locals say they are not a usual occurrence. Friend also went downstairs for lighter fare and sat near water. Nice waiters. Good service.
