We really enjoyed this restaurant. The drinks were great and the food was gorgeous. The raw oysters were in season and they were huge and delicious. Everything was delicious. We will return.

I was part of a group of five that kept asking me where I wanted to go to celebrate my birthday. But as it generally goes, I told them and everyone said no, so we ended up here after Bubba Gump had an hour and a half wait. I'd much rather not go to a chain anyway (I actually have... More

Friendly Fisherman's food is basic, ok. Don't expect anything fancy. Don't look at the bathroom. It's not really the cleanest place we have been.

This was our first visit to John's Pass; FF looked to be a nice seafood restaurant especially since it boasted "fresh" fish. I should have know right from the get-go that something was amiss when their "CATCH of the day" was Tilapia......nobody catches that!

Sit outside DOWNSTAIRS and watch the dolphins non-stop for 2-3 hours before sunset. I went three times in my week at Madeira Beach! I had Brittany as a waitress all three times; she was great! The crab cake and clam chowder are delicious. My daughter loved the crab-stuffed mushrooms. I had the grilled mahi mahi with sweet potato and grilled... More

The food wasn't all that great, but sitting outside and watching the dolphins almost made up for the bland food!
