Known for their Onion Rings, but try the Lobster Bisque

Spent the day on Nauset Beach, and of course had to try the "world famous onion rings". They did not disappoint, however, sorry to say that Kreme n Kone has rings as good if not better. Now, as for their Lobster Bisque - that's a different story. I had bisque at the Chatham Squire and the... read more

Best. Onion. Rings. Anywhere. Also great clams, calamari, chowder, lobster bisque, lobster roll, and nice ambiance right on Nauset Beach. Portions are generous - consider sharing the onion rings or the half pint of fried clams. Liam's has been an annual treat for us for many years.

Nice friendly service and reasonable prices at a great location. We love Nauset beach and it is so nice to be able to eat here as we often drive down here just for the day (from Brookline). My son loves the chicken tenders and I love the clams basket. Everything tastes great including the fresh lemonade (there is also the... More

Wow!! I love this place! I came around 5/5:30 after whale watching and shopping up in Provincetown. I was expecting a pretty big line but it wasn't too bad at all. My parents got the lobster roll (served cold) which was amazing!! I got the clam fritters which were also really good but a bit too filling for me. The... More

Liam's is just another fried seafood fast food spot on the Cape. They offer salads and sandwiches. I tried the grilled salmon sandwich which was disappointing - soggy roll, over cooked NOT FRESH salmon. The famed onion rings are highly breaded, not crisp. But the lobster bisque is wonderful.

Too expensive even by Cape mid summer standards. I understand places have to make a profit and if there is one rainy day that affects their bottom line but this place is not family friendly.

Hadn't been to Liams in over 40 years. The onion rings are still a delight. The lines to place an order are not so much fun.

This is a great beach seafood hut. The chowder is always rich and creamy, the scallops are nicely breaded as are the clam strips. Be sure to order the onion rings. This is above average beach food and worth the trip. We normally stop after 4:30 when the parking is free.

Sea foods were good. Though the clam fritters were total wastage. Loved the chowder and onion rings, clam strips. Good one!
