I went here for a wrap up business dinner, and was very happy to see the place had been renovated. It was in need of a face-lift and they did a great job. The menu is updated with some delicious new dishes. The plating has also been improved. I recommend you give this place another try.

Hard to find a seafood restaurant these days so we end up here. I think there are new menus and new prices. I had the shrimp Francaise and it was pretty good. My friend had the fried shrimp and liked them. They do give you lots to eat - a nice assortment of rolls, muffins, breads; carrots, celery, olives and... More

Nice restaurant on main road into Roslyn. Plenty of seating and on site parking. Views out the rear dining room windows are very nice. Food is very good and the deserts even better. The menu is extensive. Service is quick and attentive and the prices reasonable. If in the area I would go again.

Parking is a nightmare with cars lined up for valet while holding up traffic, then a long wait for reserved table with hoards of older people waiting. The restaurant is loud and service slow. The value is not bad as it includes a salad with dinner. We've had lobster there before which was fine and last night had Dover sole... More

I have coming here for sometime. I have never had any meal here that has not been first class. The wait staff is very professional, and the menu varied enough for me.

We ate in the Jolly Fisherman twice during our week in Roslyn. Beautiful food and great service. It was always crowded - a great sign .

Visited this place as it was 5 minute walk from our hotel and we really enjoyed the food and service. I recommend a reservation on the weekend as we were there Saturday and it was packed. They have a really good menu with something on it for everyone even if you don't like seafood. Just a mention that the wedge... More

The food is always outstanding as is the service. It's hard to get a bad meal there. Our go to restaurant in the neighborhood but you'd be well served to visit there with guests. Children are welcome, but you've got to clean them up first. You can actually have a conversation there as the noise level is reasonable. There are... More

The atmosphere is nice, quiet and comfortable. It was my mother's 91st birthday. We were a party of 8 including 2 children. The seafood is excellent. The service was wonderful. My adult niece felt ill (related to the heat and her preganancy) her husband took her home and our waiter cheerfully arranged for their food to be prepared as take... More

We have enjoyed the delicious meals at Jolly Fisherman faithfully for over 30 years. The atmosphere is top-notch, the food is always a culinary delight. Whether we dine on steamed, succulent lobster, The Jolly Fisherman Platter, Chilean Sea Bass, Shrimp, clams, calamari, sword fish, red snapper, scallops, lamb chops, or steak. The house salad is our favorite.The bread is always... More
