We drove from Portsmouth NH to have dinner here for Christmas and were so glad we did! This place is bursting with charm. When you walk in there is a cozy lounge with piano player. The decorations are adorable.
The 3 course dinner was excellent..salmon better than the haddock. The lobster bisque was terrific.
Friendly staff in darling location.
There is valet parking.
Definitely worth the 25 minute drive!

Upscale burgers including Bison, Natural, and Prime. All Natural Chicken. Fresh cut Maine potato fries. Fresh fruit drinks and frappes. Beer and wine.
We shopped at the Kittery outlets and was heading back to Ogunquit. We were hungry. Saw Wild Willy's Burgers and decided to stop and have a bite to eat. Yum. We got burgers and chicken sandwiches - all great. And let's not forget the hand-cut french fries. So good. And the staff always tries so hard to make the customer happy. Thank you.

The York Harbor Inn’s recently renovated restaurant- “1637”, offers wonderful ocean view dining in a landmark historic inn. Upon entering the dining room, you are welcomed to the past, present and future in both atmosphere and culinary art. Our menu, featured in Food & Wine Magazine, emphasizes native seafood, creatively prepared and artfully presented, as well as casual, contemporary cuisine. Menu highlights include our gourmet Flatbreads made with our own smoked sausage or fresh lobster meat, Lobster Tempura, a Ploughman’s Platter featuring house cured meats and homemade sausage, a Raw Bar menu featuring fresh oysters, shrimp, and clams, Corn and Lobster Chowder and our locally famous Seafood Chowder, as well as the best in steaks and pasta dishes. Our ocean-view piano bar has entertainment many nights of the week and Sunday Brunch is served year round.
Nicely decorated for Christmas, the Inn has a great atmosphere (I should note there is a 'tavern' downstairs that has a low ceiling and shipboard appearance that serves the same menu). Hostess and waitress very cordial and friendly. Very adequate menu with good variety - I had Cajun etuffee - nice and spicy; others had the haddock, seafood pie, and a beef dish - all delicious and well presented. Had mussels for an appetizer - enough to share plus some. Great placer for a special occasion.

The food was excellent as was the service. Loved the atmosphere and will return often. One of my favorite things is they offer many choices as sides with NO upcharge. Fries, Sweet Potato Fries, Mashed Potatoes, Homemade Chips, Coleslaw, Demi Salad, Veggies. The demi salads were great to have with our sandwiches. This happens very rarely in a restaurant. Some of us just do not want fries or chips. Most of the dinners on the menu do not go over $20.00. Next time I want to try the clam chowder. AND that will be Friday. Grandaughter is sleeping over and asked if we would take her there for a burger.

I drive up Route One all the time, but I didn't find out about this place until recently. I'm always on a quest for great pizza, and I wasn't disappointed. I got the small puttanesca (imagine, puttanesca pizza!), and it was great -- wonderful flavor, crust and ingredients. Also had a cup of their delicious roasted red pepper soup with feta and kale. When I walked in, a Pandora mix of 1970s/80s classic funk and R&B was streaming, with a lot of James Brown thrown in (you don't hear a lot of James Brown in Maine). SO cool. They had me at hello.

We have eaten at this establishment twice in 2017. It offers a great location, but the restaurant disappoints, greatly. Our last visit was a few days ago, the day after Thanksgiving. Our waiter was polite, but his delivery of food and service was poor. All of the entrees had something wrong, such as wrong protein, wrong proportion, or delivered late. Two of us ordered the Caesar salad for $12.95. The portion was small, and the lettuce had lots of brown spotting. He delivered our bill promptly, without even clearing our dirty plates. Not good.

Ate here twice while staying down the road. Only downside - they don't open until 8. I enjoyed the maple sriracha sandwich both mornings, but substituted egg whites and a wrap instead. Amazing, generous portion, very tasty and quite filling. They serve great coffee in real mugs. And when you're done, you can browse/taste among the offerings in the store.

What an experience! Probably had to wait 20-30 minutes in a line that stretched to the outside parking lot...but well worth the wait. House Special is the best...I even bought a jar of the hot dog sauce! Flo’s daughter now runs the place and she and another young lady were just cranking out the dogs...If you are in the area...it is a must do...

To our valued customers: Our goal at Fishermen's Dock is to provide a pleasurable dining experience for everyone concerned. We take pride in serving the freshest quality foods available. It is never our intention to be a fast food operation. Good food takes time to be properly prepared. During our busiest hours we will give our best effort to ensure selections are delivered in a timely manner. Thank you for your patience. Comments, good or bad, are always welcome.
Stopped here for lunch on way back to Mass. Greeted with a nice smiling hostess and seated right away. Waitress not too far behind. Had the fish sandwich and haddock taco. Onion rings great too. Both excellent and not greasy at all. Perfect amount of batter and generous portions. It was are second time here and wasn't disappointed at all. As far as a local fish/clam place Fishermen's Dock satisfied.

Casual dining in an historic restaurant and tavern. Lobster, steaks chef's specialties, seafood, American cusine
We thought our dining experience was the best of the year. We sat by a cozy wood burning fireplace in a comfy environment with great service and excellent food. We started with the pumpkin fries which were made from pumpkin not just an added flavor. They were excellent with drizzled sauces. We also enjoyed the chicken which is a speciality of the house and salmon. The chicken was fried but was dipped in chickpeas so gluten free. Very nice to be able to enjoy fried chicken if you are gluten free! The salmon was excellent also with its sauces. Decent wine selection which we felt was reasonably priced. Good whiskey and after dinner drinks and desserts. Overall, the best dining experience of the year for us.
