This is a take out with a few tables and part of a fish market next door.The quality and freshness is what makes the place.Very good fish,scallop rolls etc.good hot dogs for the non fish eaters and kids.The prices are a little high but the food is fresh.

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.

We went there based on all the 5 star ratings. There is a fish store, which may be great, but we wanted the restaurant, which is a tiny place with 4or 5 tables. They were out of crab at 1 p.m. in the afternoon. When I asked about whether there is a lot of mayonnaise in the lobster roll, I... More

Our fresh seafood was so good, we went back several times for more and cooked it at home. Happy with their clams, oysters, and fish. They have a huge lobster tank worth looking at!

Picked up some freshly cooked lobster meat and shrimp for dinner one night this week. Some melted butter, a frying pan and a few minutes was all it took to enjoy this wonderful meal. Very knowledgeable staff, reasonable prices and always fresh selection. Always try to make this a must-do when we stay on the Cape each summer. We'll definitely... More
