Fresh lobster roll and delicious fries

Came here craving a lobster roll and this place delivered. Sometimes when you go to places like this they focus so much on the lobster quality that everything else is average. We got fries and cole slaw with our food and it was delicious. The cole slaw was just right (not too runny) and the fries... read more

This unpretentious eatery is a real gem. The food is excellent. You eat outdoors but you can find a shady place especially in the back of the restaurant. Prices are reasonable. You can get broiled items if you don't want the fried fish. We have eaten here several times and have always enjoyed it.

Stumbled across this place and decided to have something to eat. Lobster roll was ok but not the best. It's a nice spot by the harbour but was quite pricey and if you are looking for really good seafood I'd go elsewhere.

Take the hassle out of steaming your lobster at home. Have it done here. We called, told them what we wanted and when we wanted to pick it up. It was ready on time. Simplified the evening tremendously!

All of the New England classics are available without the nonsense of waiting around in a more formal restaurant. The clam chowder and lobster bisque were delicious, and the lobster & crab rolls were very fresh. The kids menu pleased all 4 of our children and the only downfall was that adult beverages were not available on premises.

We were primed in our minds for scallops and shrimp over rice pilaf, which was great. But they forgot to give us our portion of cole slaw, and we didn't realize it until we had driven down the road....a little bummed.

We visited Osterville on a rather grey day which probably influenced my experience to leave me with a sense of 'that was ok'. I decided to go for my first lobster roll.....well it was......'ok', but, if it was typical of this somewhat revered or famous local dish, I wasn't particularly overwhelmed by it. Perhaps my expectation was too great! I... More

Service was pretty fast and friendly. We actually went 2/3 nights we were in Barnstable! The lobster roll is AWESOME! Worth the price. The lobster bisque wasn't great - too thick/rich and not much flavor. But everything else we had was delicious! Fish tacos, lobster roll, clam chowder, stuffed quahog all great! It's laid back, BYOB on the deck. Order... More

We stopped here after our whale watch. We enjoyed the casual environment and the weather was perfect for sitting outside. The lobster bisque was probably the best I've ever eaten - both creamy and buttery. The fried fish and clam strips were equally good! Our kid's chicken strips were real chicken. So far, this has been the best food we've... More
