Good BYOB option.....generous portions.....lobster roll over-rated

So first, the small fried clams were an excellent and generous dish. My wife found the lobster roll (perhaps) over-rated. Tasty, but too cold and not sure about the fuss. Great to sit outside.....next time we'll bring wine/beer

Friendly Fisherman's is a casual restaurant that serves up a good lobster roll. It's a pretty good portion, but not really enough to justify the price. It's served with fries but not other sides. You eat outside or under a cover, but I wouldn't recommend going there in bad weather.

This is the best place for fast seafood in Eastham. Even though most of the menu is fried, it is always very fresh and not overly greasy. It is typically busy, so I'd get the early or phone in your order for pick up.

I thought I knew what a great lobster roll was but Friendly Fisherman's was beyond my expectations. There was so much lobster it was ridiculous! Fresh, delicious and worth every penny! The other food looked good too but order the lobster roll and you won't be disappointed.

I've eaten at Arnolds a handful of times and don't see why the reviews are so great. You want good fried seafood- go to Friendly Fishermans! Went for a late lunch with a few friends. The girl behind the counter was clearly new, as it took her a very long time to take our orders. It didn't quite matter though... More

Really great fish and chips. Hot and flaky. Excellent fried shrimp. Outdoor seating. One of our favorites.

Saw the recommendations and popped in our last day at the cape. The setup was not bad with a little garden to eat in, on a picnic table. Weren't there expecting white glove service but an outstanding lobster. Unfortunately we were left a little disappointed. The portion size was right but the lobster had a little, almost fishy taste to... More

We've been going to FF market for years to get fresh and other provisions on the Cape. Always fresh, always a best price around other fish markets, and always a good selection. Some times ago we also started to order lobster rolls and other fresh fish specialties from their restaurant kitchen next door. It's worth every penny. Lot's of fresh... More

It is another "food through a window and eat at a picnic table" place on The Cape. The fish tacos had a good amount of sword fish but then topped with hmmm let me guess??? cold Old El Passo salsa in a soft flour tortilla. The fish was baked, not grilled. They had no idea how to make a fish... More
