This was our first time visiting the Island. We decided to eat here and it was a great pic! Excellent waitress, the food we had was awesome. I had eat and peel shrimp which was clean and tasted great! My only regret is not getting a lb instead of the half of lb I got. My husband got the crabcake... More

We only had the soup and salad so we cannot speak to the rest of the menu. The salad was adequate, served with your standard (probably bottled) dressing. The vegetable crab soup was okay, the addition of a little hot sauce punching it up a notch. With little to choose from on this quaint island it hit the spot. The... More

We stopped in before leaving the island. The crab bisque was absolutely delicious. The salad that came with it was a yawn. We heard other travelers talking about the bread pudding, so we tried one to share, and ended up ordering another one. It was made with coconut and pineapple and was incredible! Would happily go back, but next time... More

We brought friends from Michigan to the island and chose Fisherman's Corner to introduce them to Crab Cakes. We were disappointed that they were not made with "jumbo lump" but shredded crab meat, instead. The other dishes, crab soup, seafood medley, desert, were excellent

Only had dessert here so that is the only thing rated. Desserts were about $5 a piece including a delicious caramel apple pie with vanilla ice cream and a tall glass of brownie, ice cream and caramel/chocolate sauces. They were very rich, great to look at and tasty The decor was really enjoyed by my wife and the staff were... More

Nearly every seat was filled on our visit but service was friendly and efficient. Time is precious for day visitors and it is possible to eat a freshly cooked crab cake sandwich and fried flounder plate and still have ample time to explore the island.

We figured we'd try this place one night and another place the 2nd night, but it was so good we ended up going back for dinner the next night, and for lunch the day we left. The crab cakes were great, the portions were generous, the service attentive and even the garden salads were of high quality. The day we... More

It's been a few days and I can't stop thinking of how good the hot crab dip, and homemade potato chips were! I also enjoyed the shrimp! Totally worth a ferry ride just for the food.

We had a great meal here. Likely the best, freshest local crab you'll find anywhere. Their crab cake's only ingredient is crabmeat. The portions were large. We could have easily shared one dinner and had enough to eat. (The building has been painted since the photos here were taken.)

We chose Fisherman's because a local woman recommended them, and were we ever glad! My favorite food in the world is she crab soup. Fisherman's Corner had a crab bisque that was the absolute BEST soup I have ever had in my long life. After eating a bowl of the soup, we had their soft crab platter. UNBELIEVABLE! Their food...
