Fisherman's Grill -- Portland Maine

Had lunch there today... Haddock Dinnah -- $13.95.. Comes with fries and excellent cold slaw. Very fresh, very good, but a little too much food. About a 20 minute wait.
The mini kitchen can only handle one or two orders at a time, so its slow. They got busy at 12:30 and was telling people 45 minute wait. They lost as much business as they were receiving. Most people were from out of town. The work staff consisted of only one in the kitchen and one girl taking orders. The lonely chef could not keep up with the orders, and the call-ins were told one our wait. Prices are not real cheap, but you get a lot of food so this makes up for the price. Most seafood dinnahs are big enough for two average people.
Too bad the kitchen is not a little larger with another fryolator so the chef could turn out twice as much food, but that is not the case. I will definitely return, but get there by 12 noon before the rush.
I didn't feel that the Haddock was any fresher then at Becky's for $9.95 (large), as compared to Fishermans Grill for $13.95, but the portion was still larger at FG, and Becky's will serve you in less then 10 minutes, with lots more tables or stools to sit on, as well as fantastic desserts.
