LOVE it here

Always come here in the summer as it is the yummiest seafood place in town. In my opinion it is very underrated and should deserve the type of recognition that Arnold's does.

I always loves the friendly fisherman but after being treated rudely by their staff I would not return. Just as easy to go to Arnolds which has friendlier service.

Love their lobster roll! Did take out and all was very good for five people. Their fish market is great too. Fresh fish and other items for a great seafood dinner.

Once again we were here for dinner - one of our favorite places on the cape! We had the lobster roll and it lives up to its excellent reputation and fond memories. The roll is chuck full of lobster and very little mayo. There is never a long line but would be worth the wait if there was one. So... More

The Friendly Fisherman is consistently great! Every year this is our go-to place for take out for a quick bite to eat, for lunch on the beach, eating in, or take out to bring to the Wellfleet Drive-In with the kids! The lobster rolls are fabulous, with big chunks of fresh, succulent lobster and very little else! The clams, scallops,... More

I am a lobster roll lover. I have tried them all across the east coast and the ones here are the absolute best. Picnic tables and byob...not your atmosphere winner but who needs that when you have love at each bite!

We always go to The Friendly Fishermen when on the Cape. We've only ever gotten the fish sandwich but it is delicious and definitely worth the stop.

Small outdoor dining area attached to the main fish market building is nice with a little play area to keep the smaller kids amused. Lobster rolls ($21) aren't cheap but boy are they good; loaded with lobster and seasoned just right. Sampled the clams strips and they are also very good and piled high. Would definitely go back if just... More

My wife ordered two take out meals here and paid over $65 which I thought was a bit pricey to begin with. When we arrived back at our house was when the shock really set in. The whole belly clams were few and far between compared to the mountain of fries they came with. Even the clams were overcooked and... More

Oh my goodness. This crab roll is unreal. My sister had the fish tacos (sword fish!) which were also excellent. I'm so glad our original restaurant idea fell through.
