Fresh is an Understatement

Easily some of the freshest seafood I've ever tasted. Honestly can't imagine better seafood - MAYBE as good, but definitely not better.

We wanted to find a place that sold lobster that we could cook back at camp. This was the place. Lots of lobster here that look fresh & feisty. They were delicious too. We will definitely return. They will cook them for you too if you need them to. They had a lot of other seafood too.

We have been customers of Nauset Fish & Lobster Pool since 1988. In all these years, only once did we have a less than perfect piece of fish, which they made good on. They have the best fresh fish anywhere and their stuffed clams are outstanding ! If you need wine or beer to go with dinner, they have that... More

Went here during our trip to Cape Cod, it was the perfect meal to go. We bought 2 lobsters, they steamed and cracked them for us. They have everything you need for a delicious evening in your home or condo. They were very courteous, this place will start you off for a perfect evening.

Went here twice on our trip. Great, fresh fish. Steamed and cracked our lobsters. They even had a 10 pounder. The lobster pool was a nice surprise for the kids.

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
