Great experience!

We ate here on vacation in MV and sat at the outside seats along Circuit Ave. Not something I would do with kids, but perfect for a couple to do some great people watching at dinner time, as long as the weather is great.

Great lobster roll best have ever seen huge chunks of lobster and great bun. Market price but well worth it. Chowder is amazing too. Staff is very efficient and fast. Yes the inside was dim but we opted to eat outside on the deck. Great place

We were there for a late lunch. My husband had the chowder and was extremely pleased. I had the best fish and chips I've ever had. The fish was perfectly done-crispy on the outside, flaky on the inside and not in the least bit greasy. It came on top of fries and there was no oil on my fries. The... More

This is a not-to-miss restaurant. Need to order their award-winning clam chowder, which certainly deserves that title. My fish and chips lunch was excellent and very filling--as the food filled the plate completely. Server was very good, always there for us, and even talked to us about the Gingerbread Houses. We had some questions about them and, as it turned... More

They said it was the best chowder and so we went. We had a great bowl for lunch sitting outside under the shady umbrella.,service was good, chowder even better. Price was very reasonable. Stop here.

We went here for dinner during our recent trip to Oak Bluffs and had a good meal. My BF tried the famous chowder and thought it was pretty good - I think opinions here will vary based on what kind of chowder you like. Also we are bisque people so inherently biased. I enjoyed the ricotta appetizer and had absolutely... More

We ate there at about 4 PM and were able to order from the Lunch Menu. The chowdah is a must. We also enjoyed the lobster roll (Buttered version). Cheese Plate was also greaet.

I came in right at the beginning of lunch before any crowds. Best time to go. Sat at the bar and had a cap'ns punch-- so delicious and the baby arugula salad. All yummy and the staff was so friendly. I'll definitely be back for some chowder!
