Wife and I came here for the first time for dinner over the Thanksgiving weekend. Place is pretty big and they let us sit wherever we wanted. Wife ordered king crab while I got fried catfish. Crab was absolutely perfect. Catfish was very good. They also happen to offer deep discounts on double cocktails, so be sure to ask about... More

We like this place. It has a very diverse menu so everyone can find something they like and it is all good. The service is always good. In the spring and fall we like to sit out on the deck and watch the ducks. Once in a while we come here with a big group. They can usually seat 50-100... More

My family and I love coming to Fisherman's Wharf, especially in the summer! Food is good (nothing fancy...just simple, good food). Good drinks. In the summer, you can arrive by boat and sit out at their outdoor seating on the dock for a nice view. Inside views of the lake are great too!

What a fantastic location. Right on the water of lake Hamilton. The décor was very fisherman. Model boats, and fish everywhere.. really great atmosphere. We both had clam chowder that was amazing. She ordered the crab stuffed flounder and I had shrimp and fish. There must have been a big party somewhere in the building because there seemed to be... More

Start with one of the many excellent appetizers, but you must have a cup of one of the best clam chowders in the South. The gumbos are great, too. Catfish, crab cakes and shrimp were very good, as was the crab legs, and the side dishes were excellent. Great waterfront views and a very attendant waitstaff.

We ate here with friends when we visited Hot Springs. Our friends split stuffed shrimp with sweet potato fries, and we split crab-stuffed flounder with sweet potato fries. Each order of sweet potato fries was $1 extra. We also split a cup of crab bisque. No bread was served with the meals. With water to drink, the total for the... More

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants years ago, however the quality of food has slowly dwindled. The broiled grouper has always been my "go to" dish, it had no flavor or seasoning and even tasted freezer burnt. The salad was old and had already started turning brown, which made it inedible. Tea glasses remained empty throughout dinner,... More

This is our favorite place to eat in Hot Springs. It has a very relaxed atmosphere and the seafood has always been good. The fried shrimp is wonderful and the view is special.
