The food was excellent- lobster roll is all meat and the fish and chips were cooked perfectly. No frills, but no worries you are there for the awesome food.

If you hadn't told me the fried seafood was gluten free, I'd never had guessed. OK - that's *why* we went, but it's always great to get GF that's not an also-ran. A good old paper-napkin seafood joint, since they're a fish market also, the seafood is fresh and tasty. No difference in the off-season, when you might think the... More

The lobster bisque was the best i've tried in a long time, homemade, creamy and full of lobster meat. Crab cakes and fish sandwich were also delicious. They have great variety of gluten free options and great gluten free cookies.

I have to start with this was the first fried fish I have had since I was forced to go gluten free 4 years ago. Words cannot describe how excited that made me. I thought it was heavenly, and had to ask my Husband his thoughts since it had been so long. He agreed this fried fish was the freshest,... More

We were staying in a cottage nearby and I visited this restaurant multiple times during the week, both to eat in the restaurant, as well as picking up fresh seafood to cook on my own. The food offered in the restaurant is typical from a fish and chip place; meaning the seafood is battered then fried, but what stands out... More

This place was recommended to us last year when we were on the cape but we did not get to eat there, so we decided to make a special drive over to chatham this year for a lobster roll. Although the size of the lobster roll was decent, a good portion of the lobster in the roll was overcooked and... More

The seafood here is fast and fresh. It's not fancy, but man is it good! The staff is charming and helpful. You can eat in, take out or get fresh to cook yourself! The scallops were crisp perfection. The lobster roll sweet and the best price on the cape. The clam strips were more than one person could eat. And... More

Ate hear trying to get out of a very busy Chatham main st, and it's a safe bet for great seafood. order your meals right- lobster corn chowder all corn no lobster. Disappointing...but the fried clam dish was probably the best dish we have ever had! Atmosphere is very hectic, worth the wait!
