Consistantly...eh – My first visit to the Jolly Fisherman wasn't what I expected as far as the food was concerned. While the service was decent, the majority of the dishes (ranging from the salads, cold seafood dishes, etc) lacked flavor. When a friend of mine asked for a certain sauce for platter of oysters (instead of ketchup and horseradish), one waiter seemed confused and wasn't sure if the chef knew how to make it. FYI, the requested sauce was just a small bowl of shallots and vinegar. It's not that hard.
All in all, the food wasn't horrible, but it wasn't spectacular either. The Jolly Fisherman is mainly for people who enjoy greasy dishes along with the seafood.
Consistantly the best – I have been dining at this restaurant for over 40 years and have NEVER had a bad meal. While many say it is "past its prime" I still say it is the best around for excellent food. If you are looking for fancy, "in" cuisine, don't come here. If you are, on the other hand, looking for a pleasant dining experience with good, wholesome food, then this is a good place.
Consistently Great! – Best and freshest fish you will ever find in NY. Our favorite restaurant. Lobster is the best here. Everyone we recommended this restaurant to returns for life! Shrimp and crab are also great. Stone crabs are fantastic, when in season.
Love this place
