A great place for drinks and the view is amazing. The food was very average and our server didn't seem to give a damn . The Craggy range Sauvignon blanc was awesome. For food the Turtle club is way better

Despite the crowd at Fisherman's Village, our group of 6 was seated immediately at the restaurant. Meals were a bit slow in coming, but well worth the wait! (Because I'd never been here before, I had read some of the reviews prior to going, & many for Feb/March, 2017 were not good.) All 6 of us seemed pleased w/our choices,... More

Our food was average & service that day was appalling, but hopefully they're working on improving that. The outdoor seating & views are lovely!

Visiting the Village Fish Market Restaurant was on my bucket-list. I am so glad we made it!! I had the Mahi-mahi and my husband had the Shrimp & Scallop Scampi, both were delicious. And the view....we ate outside next to the water and the view was so relaxing. Will return again next year!!!

Unfortunately they do not take reservations which means the wait can be long but the food is good. I would go there again but not in the busy season.

Very busy restaurant at Fisherman's Village Punta Gorda. Able to watch the sunset while we ate a very good dinner of seafood casserole and blackened redfish. Servers were very good and attentive. Our friends eat here every yearly visit to Florida and we were happy to join them for the evening. Will definitely go again when visiting. Sunset is amazing... More

Thought we'd try the Fish & Chips.....they were overcooked and dry......although they were replaced.....it spoiled the meal!
