Average diner close to the waterfront with an outside terrace

We went twice as it was the closest food to our vacation rental house. The first time, we sat out on the deck terrace admiring the sunset, but when the food arrived it was dark and we could not see what we were eating. The waiter brought a night light candle which did not help. The food was... read more

We checked this out on a Wednesday for an early dinner and it did not disappoint! We stayed in South Yarmouth and this was only a short drive away with waterfront dining which there isn't much of in So. Yarmouth. Great Lobster roll here if you are a fan of them. Everyone enjoyed their meal and my son loved the... More

We ate at Tugboats twice during our stay in Hyannis. As it is in Yarmouth, it seemed to be frequented more by locals than tourists and has an excellent view, especially at sun set. The service (I think the bar tenders name was Bill) was excellent and food also good.

We loved dinning outside on deck overlooking the harbor. Our 3 year old son was kept busy by watching boats coming and going. Food was very good as well as service. Prices are average for area.

Go to Tugboats to watch the harbour and enjoy the view. We enjoyed the bar so much we visited twice and had a lovely last night in Hyannis watching the sun set and enjoying the atmosphere.

You would think being established on the Cape Cod waterfront it would have fresh seafood. The seafood pasta dish was extremely overpriced, pasta under cooked and seafood had a rubbery taste. The cocktails were full of melted ice and extremely weak. Beautiful view.. Not worth the money. Everyone was very disappointed

My husband and I carefully chose this restaurant for our 4 year wedding anniversary two weekends ago. We both ordered the stuffed lobster tails with scallops and risotto. It was amazing! So good we went back for it again the following weekend! The waitress, owner and atmosphere all contributed to a wonderful dining experience.

Went here with a party of 6 - early on friday night of 4th of July weekend. When we arrived we were told we could not sit until out fully party arrived - yet right behind us a party came in without all their guests - and because they knew one of the workers were seated immediately. We sat down... More
