Busy place! If you don't want to wait for a table to open up, choose take-out. But don't leave without food! Cod Reuben was devoured, blackened swordfish sandwich was incredible. I'm hoping to return for another before I leave the Cape. My husband ordered the Tuna wrap, and although it was very good, had hoped there was more tuna. No... More

I arrived at the Cape on Saturday and headed straight to this restaurant for the gluten-free fried fisherman's platter, which included fish, whole belly clams, scallops, shrimp and fries. The portion was generous and the fish was fried to perfection!! So, several days later, I again ordered the gluten-free platter and it was a big disappointment. The clams were not... More

Friendly, fast and delicious. Lobster rolls are yummy. Son loves the burgers and husband the grilled chicken. So something for all tastes. Like most places in Chatham it is crowded and the summer help is not as friendly as in off season. But understandable.

Yes, gluten-free is all the rage right now but to actually have a sign posted on the door that says "Celiac Friendly" is a first! Not only is their incredibly fresh and delicious Fish and Chips Gluten-Free but they also have several side dishes that are GF too. If you want the absolute best Lobster Roll, this is my suggestion... More

I titled this "Restaurant Review", because there is also a fish market here that I have no experience with and therefore this review may not be indicative of the entire establishment. I found this establishment to be very disorganized. I would not be surprised if they lost money due to the flow of ordering, pick-up, and paying for your order.... More

As we are visitors, we did not know that you can only order the lobster for take out. They have a restaurant area for fish and chips etc. but you cannot eat lobster there. We were trying to ask some questions about take-out options, and the staff was very rude.

After looking at reviews we went to this place and ordered 2 lobster rolls and a small portion of onion rings. The total was $58, I was expecting the lobster boat to be included at this price. Still the roll would be a 12" job with lobsters fighting to get out, Wrong. It was a 5/6" roll with a portion... More

This is a casual fish market with a small place to eat-in if you want to sit down. They definitely have fresh products. The lobster roll was all lobster meat with almost no fillers. I wouldn't have known that their fried shrimp was gluten-free if I didn't read it on their menu. It tasted excellent. Most of their products are... More

While the decor may be a bit lacking the food is outstanding. The adjoining fish market is well-stocked. The whole belly clams were very nicely done.
