Never disappoints owner (steve) cares about ALL his customers Thanks SO much for putting the seafood Crepe on the special hopefully it will be there more often
Consistently excellent food and service at Jolly Fisherman. One of the best restaurants around.
A return to an old favorite - it didn’t disappoint! Food was excellent! Huge portions! Our cocktail was also delicious! Well worth the money!
Food and service was excellent. Can’t wat to go back
Dining at this restaurant is not the same since the pandemic. The staff were very nice and appreciative that we came there to eat. We were the only ones in the restaurant for the whole time we were there. It was a Saturday afternoon for lunch and usually they would have been very busy. The food was good but the prices were a bit higher than usual.
Enjoyed an outstanding meal on what was a very hot evening outdoors, but the quality of the food and service were impeccable. Highly recommend.
As you can probably tell we come here often. The food and service are excellent. I had the three pound lobster with the expensive stuffing which I didn't like...I hope that they will survive during these hard times.
After years of driving by this restaurant we’ve decided to try it for a birthday dinner. Excellent, warm and friendly service. The food plentiful and delicious, complimented by an impressive selection of libations. We enjoyed our dining experience and will surely return in the future.
Always a great meal with nice environment and professional wait staff. One of our favorite restaurants.
The food was great& service was great.We plan to dine with you in the future.
Food was great as well as the service. Bread basket had a great variety. Waiter was terrific.
Food was wonderful. Our waiter was a bit difficult. Very combative and didn’t listen too well but jolly fisherman always delivers a great meal.
It’s been a classic since as long as I can remember. It remains very much the same, with good food and service — and a scenic view of the pond. Their bread basket is the best anywhere!
I hadn't been here in years, but I had a yen for swordfish and Jolly Fisherman didnt disappoint. Starting with a basket of rolls that included their famous date nut bread, and a free bowl of crudites and olives, the whole dinner was delicious with old fashioned professional service. I won't wait so long before coming back again.
We had a great meal. The only negative is that they don't honor reservations. We had an 8:00 reservation and we waited at the bar and had a drink. That is fine if you can get a seat. We were seated about 8:40. Many other people were still waiting.
Wonderful meal and absolutely fantastic service! Very crowded so a little noisy but to be expected with no open tables! Will be back as soon as we can!
Not a busy Thursday night. Good service. Always reliable for a good meal.
Good food and great service. Been there many times
We dine with you every week and have noticed things slowly and steadily declining.....what is going on?
For a time there were no celery stalks.... they’re back but the radishes were frozen and there were no green olives. We used to love the pretzel rolls, but they too are no longer available.
This week our waiter was not around much, although the restaurant was far from filled, and we had to wait and wait to order and then for coffee.....
My snapper was subpar, to put it mildly.
This has been disappointing, as we’ve always loved the Jolly Fisherman and have recommended it to so many of our friends.
I hope you can turn things around soon.
Awesome food, nice view.
Went for lunch. Great bread basket. Nice lunch menu. Would go back
AMAZING..... Everything was so delicious. Amazing service.... this restaurant is definitely a Gem.
Valentine’s Day at a very special place to my girlfriend
I've been to Jolly Fisherman a few times. They're not a low-end seafood place, so don't be expecting the 'low' quality (and price associated) from Red Lobster here. Don't underestimate the amount of food, either. Each dinner serving comes with 2 side dishes (I got a salad and a twice-baked potato). Jolly also puts down a vegetable bowl and bread on the table. They make some of the best bread around (Mom was looking for more to go!).
It's not your everyday type restaurant, we keep it for special occasions. And will definitely be back again!
How can you not love JF? Always consistently good food, and our waiter was really great. Business lunch with 2 out of state colleagues and they were very happy.
We were placed in the secondary dining room yet there was adequate room in the more comfortable one. This shouldn’t have happened because I had reserved well in advance and I am a returning patron.
Very nice service. Great waiter. Nice cocktail. Taken on time . Very nice experience over all
We have been here so many times, and we have never been disappointed! The food is always great, the service is top notch, we really just enjoy the entire experience each time we are here.
We've been going to the Jolly Fisherman for over 50 years. The food is consistently good...dinner is very expensive, prix fixe lunch is very reasonable.
We have been coming to the Jolly Fisherman for years and it is always wonderful! Best seafood around.
This is a perfect special occasion restaurant. It is pretty, the food is delicious and the service is attentive without being cloying. Dinner portions are generous. I always bring home leftovers. A lovely bread basket, crudités and dip are provided along with two large sides. The fish is always fresh and perfectly prepared. Reservations are honored. I have been there many times and never been disappointed.
Overall, a great dinner. Our group had steak, salmon and scallops and all the meals were great. Great service. The cost was somewhat pricey.
Excellent and reliable. Lunch is a good value with varied selections.
Wonderful as always!
Great h”hot lunch” place. Both regular and set menu. Great selection at reasonable prices. Pretty setting. Relaxed atmosphere and we weren’t rushed!
Consistently good service and menu
Food fantastic. At the pricing level they services should be first class, this visit the service was poor. Other times first class. Could be where we we’re sitting,
Great food as always! Cannot go wrong with the duck.
Caesar salad perfect. Everyone enjoyed their dinner.
Will def return.
We have been going to The Jolly Fisherman for only about six months, but it has become our “go to “ restaurant for a date meal, a great night with great food and service.
