We were so pleased with this little hole-in-the-wall. We just wanted an uncomplicated lunch (and hubby wanted a beer). We were passing through Chatham to elsewhere----and out of season. I told hubby that there was a pub almost across the street, but he was drawn to this more family-style little place. We both had delicious sandwiches, at a reasonable price.... More

The food is good, but over-priced even for Cape Cod. My wife had a turkey sandwich with chips and I had a chicken pannini. We both had coffee. The bill was $27.00 before the tip. Granted, meals on the Cape tend to be expensive, but there are better values out there for your money and I will go to those... More

A great little restaurant with good food and service. The only problem was that they ran out of the daily soup special which looked so damned good. It was a damp cold day and they had a tomato-chicken-vegetable soup and grilled cheese, which was just what the weather called for. Unfortunately there was only one bowl left, so the rest... More

Decent food. This is a good location when everywhere else in town has a wait. Stick to the chowder and fried food. Also a decent burger.

Best lobster roll on our whole trip - so good that I went back the next day and had it again! Crab cakes good too.

Visited for lunch on a Sunday afternoon and after waiting a short time we were seated indoors. This place is tiny and staff is rather confused and disorganized. We came in and were told by a server a table would be cleaned. Another couple came in after us and told a different server that they wanted a table. When the... More

Loved their NE clam chowder. Had two bowls which I've never done in my life. Not too thick and not too thin. Chowder's consistence was just right and clams were tender and fresh not chewy.
