Beach food!

We got the munchies and Liam's took care of it! French fries and onion rings were to die for. Would have gotten more but didn't want to spoil our dinner.

We read the first page of reviews and got excited because we were looking for a spot near the water to eat. Then we drove there. We opted not to pay $15 to enter the parking lot since we just wanted lunch not beach time.

Orleans charges $15 to park each summer day through Labor Day. You can always bike, walk or roller blade there for free. They never charge to park after 4:30 pm and Liam's is open until 8 pm daily. Come when the parking is free and the crowds have left! More

Can't leave Nauset beach without getting the onion rings here, and nothing better then sitting on the beach with some clam chowdah, from Liams. We were there the first week of opening,,when the new staff were starting, was a little frustrating when they didn't know what cream was for the coffee and then to get down to my chair to... More

Thanks for the heads up. We do hire several new students each year, mostly from Eastern Europe and language is a challenge in the beginning. But we always have senior staff readily available to assure great service. More

The world famous onion rings did not disappoint. However the lobster bisquE did, Not one piece of lobsteR in 2 cups. When I mentioned it to a staff member, she replied "there is no lobster in it, it's just a creamy sauce." A little disappointing.

Hello, We are proud of our affiliation with a local company, Blount Company, who makes our lobster bisque. My question always is "Why complain online when we appreciate the opportunity to correct ANY perceived problems with a customer's food order or service delivery while you are still at our restaurant? We receive many excellent comments on our smooth, tasty bisque,... More

Liams is right at Nauset Beach, on the sandy walkway. It's famous for it's fried clams, to die for thin and crispy onion rings, chowder and other typical Cape Cod fried foods. They also make nice lobster rolls, salads and of course, burgers and hot dogs.

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 have not... 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
