Nice atmosphere close to Ferry Boats and Harbor Actvity. Good food a little pricey but good place for a casual lunch.

The food was definitely good, but the real charm here was the service. We stayed in Hyannis during the last 2 weeks of August, at a very busy time of year. The restaurant was packed, but the service did not suffer. Aside from some confusion with the buzzers at the hostess station (by what I hope was a new employee),... More

Great food. Giant lobster roll was a little smaller than I expected (only about 6 inches for $25), but would go again.

We had only a short wait for outside seating (plenty of space inside) and as it was a muggy day we were glad to be able to dine outside. We had the chowder (recommended by the hostess who seated us) and shared a lobster roll. Chowder was excellent. Among the three best I've ever had. But the lobster roll was... More

To start off, the food was tasty and well presented. However, that didn't make-up for the following issues I had with my visit. We were seated quickly with menus and were told by the person seating us he would return with the drink/wine list. Never returned. So, we had iced tea. Our server wasn't very personable, very bland and didn't... More

I found these to be a little overdone for my taste but they had a lot of flavor. The service was absoultely great.... More

Lovely outside seating areas with patio heaters. Indoor dining area is comfortable, although a bit noisy when busy, and there was a slightly tuneless pianist/singer on the Saturday night who could have been a bit less intrusive. Great location next to the Hyline ferry terminal

Had dinner here on 9/21/2014 with friends. Stuffed lobster had a lot of breading, baked potato was very good, broccoli was a over cooked a tad. Desert of grapenut custard was served warm but could have used some taste,a cinnamon or nutmeg would have Amadeus it excellently, the whipped toppling fell off the top as it melted.. Might have been... More
