Best steak in the world! (well definitely in South River!)
There is one reason and one reason only to head over to the Fisherman and that is for the Angus Na Casserola. The Angus Na Casserola is a gorgeous Black Angus cut of beef that is at least 18 ounces that comes out sizzling and served in and extremely hot clay dish. The steak is then finished table side by the chef and is lovingly basted in garlic butter and sliced for you if you so wish. We have had this steak many times and it never disappoints. It is in our top 5 steaks of all time.
There is actually one other reason to head to the Fisherman. The Sangria. They have the best Sangria in all of NJ. We have had a few seafood items and they were always very fresh and tasty and we love the Pork Chops in Garlic Sauce, but we have not had too many items on the overall menu to offer full reviews here. The menu is simple and straight to the point with several versions of Paella and many variations of seafood. The granddaddy of them all on their menu is their "Festival de Marisco for Two" which includes a whole stuffed lobster, succulent shrimp, scallops, clams, and mussels broiled together and served on a silver platter.
The inside decor of the Fisherman was recently re-done after the unfortunate storm damage and it now has a hipper vibe with a more modern feel. There is also a nice large bar area. The Fisherman is our choice for best Portuguese in Middlesex County NJ and it wins that title solely based on the Angus Na Casserola and Sangria alone!
