    This has to be one of the best dining experiences I’ve had. Krystal our waitress was exceptional. The manager checked on us to ensure we were happy and we even saw him diving under a table when a child lost his shoe. Now for the food! It was delicious and fresh to the very last bite. The seafood chowder was delicious and the lobster risotto was creamy and tasteful. This is one restaurant I will visit with each trip to the Maritimes.

    We had a great meal while celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary. The service was outstanding, from the moment we entered the restaurant until we left a couple of hours later. The food was really tasty and the service and presentation was top notch. They even included a couple of extra touches as we were celebrating a special occasion. We have eaten here a couple of times over the last few years when we were in the country visiting. The food and the service just keep getting better and better.

    We went to 5 fisherman because of the reputation and unfortunately it doesn't live up to the hype. Our server completely forgot about us and we had to flag down a new server. It took an hour to get out food, with no bread or anything during the wait. Fish was overcooked and portions were small despite high prices. We were hungry afterwards and disappointed

    Nice ambiance. Great food and drinks. Staff willing to go over and beyond to provide the best service. As with most restaurants these days the pricing is a bit much but quality of food and drinks was good.

    Our server, Krystal, was excellent. She was appropriately attentive and went out of her way to ensure our experience was top notch. Rather than ordering entrees, we shared six different appetizers consisting of 5 different seafoods and a grilled romaine salad. Every appetizer was packed with flavour. The mussels were probably the best we’ve ever had as was the tuna tartare. The oysters were fresh and flavourful and the scallops ceviche was delicious. The crab cake rangoon was our least favourite because it was richer than the other dishes, but still top notch. This restaurant is highly recommended!
