Great Variety on the Menu and Delicious Seafood

I tried their famous lobster roll and wasn't disappointed. Huge pieces of claw meat topped the sandwich... pieces so big they needed to be cut to fit in my mouth. Other family members had the fish and chips and seemed to love every bite.

As advertised, a great lobster roll, but the real attraction is their fruit pies, which we have been addicted to for years. Call ahead if you want to score one, they go fast. Great buttery crust and fresh fruit in perfect proportions. A little bit of vanilla ice cream and you're basically in dessert heaven.

Read all the reviews, so we were excited but yet again let down. Fish sandwich was good portion of flaky fish but lacked seasoning. I ordered Lobster Bisque. Bisque?? it was more like colored orange water with a tiny shriveled up piece of maybe lobster. It cost $7.00 in small cup. I tried to return it and told them it... More

I thoroughly enjoyed a fresh, flavorful and delicious scallop roll. Non-greasy and generous and did I mention - fresh? The rolls come with fries, but when I asked for a side of cole slaw to go along with my order, the order taker offered to substitute slaw instead of fries. Excellent customer service! The cole slaw was delicious and was... More

Many signs at this fish market/roadside restaurant remind you that they are highly rated by Trip Advisor and Zagats. They are also well-known for their lobster roll. We went twice, and had the same opinion both times. We went back the second time in case we were missing the boat the first time. The first day we ordered the fish... More

I went here prior to reading any reviews for clam chowder thinking it's the cape how could you screw up clam chowder until I ordered it and it looked like the dirty water in my washing machine. Well, lesson learned. Much better chowder available elsewhere. I did actually eat the chowder but grey watery just didn't cut it for me.... More
