Reading through previous reviews I can see how their complaints could be valid. We arrived just as the doors were opened. We were told that there was no indoor dining because there was only one waitress and she was handling the outdoor seating area. We were happy to accommodate and sat outside. Since we were the first there our order... More

Stay away from this place. No liquor license. They took over a half hr to deliver a sub par lobster roll on a none busy day. Just avoid

We also went here because I was starving and the line at Arnold's was crazy (this was our first night in Eastham). The menu was lacking in options and the ambiance was strange - I almost felt depressed eating there. They have a boat full of lobsters in the middle which could be cool except that they are just floating... More

From the outside the restaurant looks quite upscale and interesting. Once inside there is a different story. Some highlights of our dinner include being served food on paper plates, everything on the menu being fried, despite having a large visible bar no ability to get alcohol, a wait staff that seemed disinterested and distant (and hard to understand). We stuck... More

We ended up going here because Arnold's was insanely busy. The ambience was horrible and the food was blah. The bigger problem was that you paid for fine cuisine which it definitely wasn't. To add insult to injury we tried to order beer (which was on the menu) but apparently they lost their liquor license. Find somewhere, anywhere else to... More

Pricey menu with average food makes this about the same as many other places on the Cape. The only memorable part was the massive onion rings!

The price on the blackboard for a clam belly plate was $17.95 (already a little pricey, but it was what my dining companion wanted). We were seated outside, and on the menu the clam belly plate was listed as "market price." We had seen the price on the board indoors, so it didn't occur to us we had to ask... More

Last august my family and I went to the lobster shanty and had a good experience, good good and service. However, this years experience was awful. My family and I were very disappointed due to the fact that the restaurant served no alcoholic beverages what so ever. We than decided to order drinks and soups that were served to us... More

Omg! Should have known better when the parking lot was empty on a Saturday night in August on the cape! On the menu they say full bar only to find out they lost their liquor license. It had been going downhill the last couple of years where they would over charge for marginal food and drink but this year was... More
