Clean tanks, fresh seafood smell, friendly staff; call ahead to have them steam food, ready for your pick-up; average-to-good prices

This is our new "go-to" place for uber-fresh fish when we want to "cook in" on Cape Cod. Recently enjoyed delicious swordfish and a heaping collection of shellfish from here, and would highly recommend. It is buzzing busy and frequented by locals. The adjacent Sir Cricket's (common ownership, I think) is also fantastic, albeit tiny (nab the outside picnic table!).... More

My husband is a fisherman so he really knows his fish. After buying fish elsewhere, we always come back to this fish market. Not only is the fish really fresh but the variety is top notch and the cleaning of the fish/shellfish stellar. DH complains about nasty parts left on the filets bought elsewhere but never here. The bluefish is... More

This is the first place I visit while I vacation in this area. The fish is always fresh caught daily. You can't get it fresher, they are all friendly, full of knowlege, the price is expected in this area. So be prepared to dish out some cash, but I am sure you will enjoy what you buy especially if you... More

Got some cooked shrimp from them and they were smelly and tasted weird/slimy. Maybe we just hit them on a bad day? Well, I probably will give them one more chance but generally, did not enjoy the shrimp.

Expected better prices off season. We would have liked some salads or side dishes to take back to our rental with the steamed lobster.

As others have mentioned, this is not a restaurant. But if you live nearby or are heading to a barbecue, it is a good place to choose from a nice array of seafood, including dozens of lobsters of different sizes waiting for you inside a humongous pool. We came home with some sole and outsize quahogs. Everything was fine. The... More

I went to the Nauset Fish & Lobster Pool based on the ratings on TripAdvisor. However, it is not a restaurant. They are a fish market that offers to steam your lobster for you... that's it. It is not a criticism, just to let people know.
