Best lobster roll and some family members love fisherman's platter - all so good! Service is friendly as advertised!

Went to the friendly fisherman with a group. I ordered the lobster (how can you go wrong with fresh lobster). Well being from coastal NH I was stunned to get such a fresh lobster with margarine, not butter. I'm sure people who have never had lobster wouldn't have known but this was a MAJOR NO NO. The clam chowder was... More

This is mainly a takeaway, and is much used by local residents rather than vacationers. The food is good, cheap and plentiful, but the seating, outdoors on backless benches, not very comfortable. Eat their good food, but take your meal and eat it in your car.

A good place to go for some quick food. Won't be anything special or anything you'll think about again. I got the fried shrimp, tasted just like the deep fried shrimp at Applebee's. Crabcakes weren't good at all. Okay place, but if I go back to the Cape next summer, I probably won't go here again.

The biggest surprise to us was that there were no proper washroom facilities. There is potty party available but no sink to wash hands. This was a problem for us We had fish and chips and it was tasty and portions were decent.The price was somewhat on the higher side than we were anticipating however I am guessing that the... More

We were starving driving up route 6, saw the line at Arnold's and decided to find another place to have lunch. Found this gem; monster lobster roll, and incredible 3 piece Cod fish & chips. Best I ever had, outside England. They even had malt vinegar! The very young counter girl was polite, and the food was done quickly. There... More

Came here for a late lunch. Cost $93 for 6 people! The food wasn't bad, but for better value, we'll stick with Arnold's.

Was told to try this restaurant out. Decided on trying it out at lunch. The service was quick and friendly. The area was very clean. I had the clam strips and the onion rings. They were both amazing.... I loved the outdoor seating; it felt really homey. I would recommend this restaurant to others... I might return myself...

Nice Place to stop when leaving the Cape for one last Lobster Roll. It is not a cheap stop, but lobster rolls are on average $18.00 each all over the Cape. Also, a great selection of live lobster to go at $8 per pound.
