  • The Old Fisherman

    Biggest disappoint of the entire trip. The service was excellent, the food was mediocre at best. I heard multiple locals recommend the place, however I can only recommend you save your money. I was afraid to ask the market price for the lobster, the reason I went, so instead I ordered the seafood linguine ($28). I only flavor I could taste was garlic. As far as seafood, it had 1 shrimp, 2 muscles, some over cooked squid, and a few tiny pieces of fish. I have never written such a negative review, and my apologies to the friendly staff, but it was not worth the time and definitely not worth the money.

    Decor was nice, staff friendly but a bit slow. It was quite expensive for the food quality. We read many reviews and were quite excited to go, and left disappointed. Recommend going elsewhere.
