3,478 miles of coastline featuring beautiful beaches and picturesque lighthouses, blueberries, L.L. Bean—these are just a few of the things that the great state of Massachusetts is incredibly well known for. But more so than anything else, the one thing that New England’s largest and northernmost state does arguably better than anywhere else in the country is its elite seafood cuisine scene. While they may be new to the scene, there are two brothers who know the fishing game better than almost anyone else and have recently been making some serious waves with their new restaurant complex: Fisherman’s View!
A Restaurant with a Tradition Birthed in Excellence
The founders of one of the best restaurants cape cod, Fisherman’s View, are Bob and Denny Colbert, a pair of local fisherman who have fished out of the Sandwich Marina for over thirty years! After they completed their engineering degrees at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, the brothers fell in love with fishing, and while they may have begun with just a small boat, they have evolved their business to include three large commercial vessels.
Not content with the success they were finding in the fishing business, the Colbert brothers wanted to take it one step further and decided to conquer the Cape Cod dining business as well! Thus, in August 2015, the two brothers obtained an adjacent piece of land on the Cape Cod Canal and built their vision: a boat-to-table seafood market, restaurant, bar, and wholesale complex. With a focus on fresh, locally sourced seafood, coupled with stunning views of the canal and marina, the brothers hope to give all guests of the Fisherman’s View a truly unique experience and glimpse of modern fishing!
What truly makes the restaurant at the Fisherman’s View stand out amongst Cape Cod dining as a must visit is the Colbert’s commitment to their boat-to-table style of food, and from your first bite, you will truly be able to taste the difference this makes. Open daily year-round for full-service lunch and dinner, Fisherman’s View serves everything from Cape Cod classics to globally-inspired dishes. Whether you want an old classic like the Warm Buttered Lobster Roll or something unique like the Grilled Swordfish Steak with autumn vegetable cous cous, every bite is guaranteed to be the freshest bite in all of Massachusetts!
Take Some of Our Fresh Fish Home!
One thing we love most about this restaurant is the opportunity they provide to enjoy fresh fish; one visit here and you can truly experience the difference for yourself! The Fisherman’s View fish market (on the northwest side of the building) is open daily and year-round from 8 AM to 7 PM for retail seafood, their full restaurant take-out menu, made-to-order sushi, local groceries, wholesale, and so much more!
Don’t Forget About the Bar!
Last but certainly not least is Sandie’s Outdoor Bar, a fast-casual oceanfront bar on the east corner of the property featuring nautically inspired drinks that are made with the freshest ingredients, and are perfectly paired with their catch. As long as weather permits, Sandie’s is open every day during the summer months!
With decades of fishing experience to guide them, Bob and Denny Colbert are ready to show you the difference that boat-to-table can truly make in seafood cuisine. Feel free to stop by today and taste the difference! Fisherman’s View is located at 20 Freezer Road in Sandwich, MA, and for more info or to make a reservation, feel free to call them at 508-591-0088!
