Foursquare Tips

  • Excellent spot for all you can eat mussels!
  • Lobster Roll - Done.
  • Best calamari I have ever had! Servers were not friendly.
  • You have to eat here, at least once, as a Haligonian, because seafood is our coast's forte and The Five Fishermen does it RIGHT
  • Happy hour oysters and drink special can't be beat. Lobster Cobb was very good as well.
  • Cioppino is superb! Tomato sauce to dream about. Try the niva Scotia rose Leon Millott - wait for it to reach room temperature before tasting...then discover dark red cherries and dark chocolate
  • Oysters are amazing at happy hour!!!
  • Great appetizers and setting
  • Groartige Weine aus Nova Scotia (Probier bitte: Nova 7) und leckere Desserts! Alles liebevoll arangiert.
  • Great oysters, tiny entrees. .. but delicious. Pricy too.
  • Had the Arctic Char with wild rice/roasted peppers. Fish was INCREDIBLE! Rest of it? Meh at best. A bit pricey for just meh.
  • Happy Hour Oysters...$1.50 each daily starting at 4pm! Stay away from the Fish Tacos... you'll go home broke and hungry. Lobster Roll isn't bad.
  • Seared halibut tender and great. Dolce de Leche excellent - portions could stand to be bigger though
  • Building decor, and staff are great, but the food isn't worth it on any count. SO many better options for seafood. Go elsewhere.
  • Over 6'3"? Watch your head at the top of the stairs!!
  • Love this spot for a meal or just a glass of wine. Largest selection of NS wines anywhere :)
  • DELICIOUS food. We had the lobster linguine and the pancetta chicken, and a fantastic dirty Caesar!
  • Unimpressive. Steak is way overpriced and below average. Friends say seafood is unimpressive as well. Do not recommend.
  • You can't go wrong with a classic, especially one with complimentary mussel and salad bars! Try the Grilled Leg of Lamb, Seafood Pie, Bouillabaisse or Blackened Haddock, and end with Pudding Chomeur.
  • Nice ambiance. Roasted halibut was excellent.
