Summer lunch

Great lunch , delicious chowder and the homemade chips were amazing. Clam roll was good but around $24.00 was rather steep.

I went twice for dinner in August. Each time, the sunset was FANTASTIC, the meal service slow. The fish is nice and fresh though some was smothered in butter.

We ate there on a Saturday just before Sunset. It is open air and we could see the boats and the harbor. The setting was perfect. They cannot take credit, but so was the weather. Patti was our server and she was prompt, courteous and knowledgeable about the menu and the wine selections. Even the coffee at the end was... More

We ate here, based on the advice of a local. We arrived after sunset, and were seated immediately. It was actually fancier than I expected, since I thought it was going to be very casual. First they serve you warm buns, which are really good. I had the special, which was cod in a pistachio and panko coating, served with... More

Came on Cape on a Sunday afternoon, fighting road race weekend traffic, but decided to jaunt along 6A to Barnstable. I had lived on the Cape for years and knew about Mattakeese Wharf, but had never been there. What a great find! We sat in the bar during Sunday brunch and enjoyed ourselves so much! Jimmie, the bar tender, was... More

I went with a party of 12 family members for a birthday party. After reading reviews of this restaurant I was looking forward to a nice experience. The restaurant was packed with people as to be expected on a nice warm summer evening. We sat by open windows (no screens) overlooking the marina/harbor. Watching the boat traffic coming and going...

There are a lot of places on Cape Cod that cater to an upscale crowd with a great location, great view, valet parking, and overpriced food that is generally mediocre. This is one of them. We had a dockside table overlooking the water that was quintessential Cape Cod, and that's exactly how it felt. The drinks were weak. We ordered... More

Stopped for drinks and enjoyed this waterfront restaurant! Service was slow but loved the atmosphere. Even a small store that sells t- shirts and sweatshirts. Fun place, great views!

We stopped for lunch before our whale watch. We were one of the first customers of the day, so we were able to sit out back over looking the harbor and the water. Beautiful breezes and views. The staff was friendly and the food was good. Good variety on the menu and lots a of seafood choices.
