Visit on the Cape

Really good food. "Lord of the Rings". Nice people working there. I'll go back to this beachside sweet spot.

Liam's is one of the places to get the best onion rings. My husband insists on a stop at Liams whenever we are on the Cape. you will usually find them open even in the Fall if the sun is shining. We were there on Columbus Day (October 2015) and YES they were open!!! My only issue was that the... More

Liam's is the beach oasis at Nauset Beach and we are lucky to have it. The pricing could be better but the food hits the spot when experiencing another day at the awesome Beach. Ice Cream, the usual fried fare and cold unhealthy drinks are offerred for our consumption. The Fried Scallops seem to be ALWAYS sweet! And the Fried... More

Last year, I got an ice cream cone at Liams and I thought is was so good, we made a point to get back to Nauset Beach this year for their ice cream. However, even though we had good weather for the most part that week, the day we went to Nauset for our ice cream cone was so cold... More

Great Snack bar for the beach, or even a place to go for Dinner after the beach is closed for parking charge. We used it plenty while on the beach, and would go back at night for ice cream and another walk on the beach. A gem for sure.

Not only enjoyed the fried clams but loved the friendly service. The owner, John, was nice enough to exchange a tee shirt we bought which was too small for my Dad. A simple phone call and the arrangement for exchange through the mail was planned and carried out! Thank you so much for taking the time to make Dad happy.

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.
