Fathoms Waterfront Bar & Grille is located in New Bedford, MA, the seafood capital of the United States. Our mission has always been to bring the freshest seafood, best drinks and extraordinary culinary creations to our customers while providing a fun, beautiful atmosphere to enjoy it all in.

Fathoms was created in 2010 by Lars Vinjerud II, a local fisherman who knows a thing or two about the seafood industry. Lars started fishing decades ago out of Alaska at 15 years old. Eventually, he bought his first fishing vessel, the Lisa Lynn, here in New Bedford. The F/V Explorer, which still fishes today, was his first scalloper. Now decades later, he owns a fleet of boats with some of the best fishermen around who fish for scallops, lobster, crab, tuna, swordfish, monkfish and much more.

Speaking of fleets, did you know that all of our seafood comes directly from Fleet Fisheries, our sister seafood processor? This vertical integration guarantees that Fathoms only gets the best and freshest seafood around!

Our ultimate goal is quality, comfort and an overwhelming satisfaction for every patron who visits our establishment. Whether is at our glass top bar, high top tables, comfortable semi-circle booths, dining room or outside on our waterfront deck overlooking all of the harbor's commercial fishing action, we highly encourage you to come join us for a delicious meal, drinks and fun!

Hope to see you soon!
