Been here may times with family. Great atmosphere, great views of the water, and great seafood. Lobster tails and fried shrimp are A+. Make sure to try he fabulous raisin bread in the bread basket!

For a lovely restaurant with nice surroundings and good sea food, try the Jolly Fisherman. They are open for lunch and dinner. The food and service are very good They prices are a little high, but sometimes you have to spend a l ittle more for some really good food.

Jolly Fisherman has the best lobster on Long Island, that is indisputable. However, I have found many of their other dishes to be either bland or just downright boring. So if you really have a lot to spend on a lobster dinner, this is the place to go. They will welcome you to your table with lovely rolls and crudites (I eat everything). Their lobster bisque is also delicious.

This is a very nice restaurant. The food and service is great.
It is a little pricey but worth the money if you like good seafood.
If you are seated by a window you a overlooking a lake.

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.

Pros: Shrimp cocktail and lemon sole

Cons: Greasy entrees, brainless wait staff, loud ambiance

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.

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
