We came here knowing that we were in a state known for its seafood and therefore every place knew how to prepare seafood. We were somewhat disappointed. The app was chowder followed by an entree of baked stuffed sole with newberg sauce and clambake. The taste of each meal seemed as if it was either from the can or was... More

Very disappointing meal. U had an appetiser from 'specials'. I expected baked oysters in their shell. What came was battered oysters so no flavour. For main corse I ordered lobster neuburg. Do if disappointing. A couple of bits of overcooked lobster slopping around in an unpleasant flavoured runny sauce. When the waitress twice enquired as to whether I was enjoying... More

This was a very cute traditional seafood restaurant. My husband had Lobster Newberg but the sauce was not very good unfortunately. I had deep fried lobster and clam chowder which was good. The gift shop was cute and kept my niece busy the whole time we were there. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was nice.

We had a big family reunion in Cape Cod so we were eating out at a lot of different restaurants. It is a nice restaurant with a good family atmosphere. The food was very fresh and delicious. The service was also great. The gift shop was nice, and I regret that I didn't buy anything from there since in that... More

A large restaurant, clean, good service, great value. We arrived at about 5pm to be told that we were in time for the early bird special. It was a great deal! Free clam chowder, free soft drinks, and free desert. You pay for the main course and the rest is no charge, well that is the sort of price I... More

Four of us had lobster for dinner on Friday, June 13, thanks to a tip from a local. Would eat here often if we lived nearby. Highly recommend for authentic fresh cape cod lobster Service was pleasant and the lobster fresh and good. A good value, fun nautical decor was entertaining.
