The Best!

I have been vacationing to Cape Cod almost every year since I was a child and the highlight of each visit is eating at Liam's for the best seafood in Cape Cod! everything on their menu is just perfection and their onion rings are to die for! The location is great, right next to Nauset Beach. If you... read more

If you are looking for great fried seafood, go to Liam´s. As a whole-belly fried clam aficionado, this place was highly recommended to me - and it did not disappoint. You order at the counter and eat at one of the outdoor tables. Not a place for your anniversary dinner, but just a no-nonsense, good food shack at the edge... More

Even if you bring your own goodies to the beach, Liam's cannot be resisted. I always say no to onion rings, but not at Liams. They are soo good. Worth a visit there just for them. Ice cream was delish even a hot dog taste good at Liams. A must try!!

It is what it is. The long lines before Labor Day notwithstanding, the food is average. My fried clams were the worst I've had on the Cape: small and mostly batter. The onion rings were OK. The franks were ball park at best. My next visit to Nauset Beach I brought my own lunch. Not too hard and better that... More

In practice I love the idea of this place... but waiting an hour and a half here a few Tuesdays ago kind of soured the experience. Granted there was a bus full of teenagers that were in line here... but still. I got a fried clam roll which was fine, the fries were a but undercooked. They have a great... More

What has happened?! In the last 2 weeks suddenly the lobster rolls have so much mayo they are hard to eat! No shredding of the lobster meat just claws doused in too much mayo. Bring back the old lobster rolls! Please!!!!!

We had the burger, hot dogs and chicken fingers for dinner. Line moved quickly and all the food was very good. We sat and ate at the picnic tables overlooking Nauset Beach on a nice evening. It doesn't get much better than that!

Good food at the beach. The line was very long, but the staff was friendly. There were plenty of shaded picnic tables to eat at.
