The place is not much to look at and service is pretty average, but the food is very well worth it and the prices are great. It will definitely be on out TODO list every time we visit Maine.

Never been to the other noted restaurant. But the food at Fishermans Catch fresh and simple and good. Not fancy. More of restaurant atmosphere compared to a true shack
