Excellent value for the price

Whenever we stay at the Cape, we always stop at Nauset Fish & Lobster and purchase lobster for steaming for dinner. We are never disappointed at the quantity for choice and the quality of our choice. This would be a place I would highly recommend!

Great fish, good service, but pricey. Good fish to take home. We've tried some of the prepared items, and they are adequate. While a nice, well run fish market, it is expensive.

Best fried clams and lobster roll on the Cape. We stopped on the drive from Boston to Provincetown. The food was very satisfying. It's a walk/up counter with tables inside. In the adjacent store, there are two huge lobster pools, one for large and others for your standard size lobsters. And heaps of fresh fish of many varieties.

Best fresh fish for your cookouts! Not cheap but well worth it! Right off the boats! Cool vibe and the locals shop here! A classic Cape Cod fish store!

Some of the freshest fish on the cape. You come here to buy fish or lobsters. The resturant is next door The prices on some of the fish is higher than shaws or stop and shop BUT the quality is way above. Actually they are competitive a lot of the time

On our way home after 4 wonderful days in Cape Cod, we stopped at Nauset Fish and Lobster Pool to purchase fresh Cod to take home. The staff was very helpful, wrapping our fish with plenty of ice to last until we got home. All the seafood here is fresh and displayed very nicely. We always stop here for the... More

My daughter lives in Costa Rica but she and her family are home for the summer. She was dying for Cape Cod lobster as the "bugs" in the Pacific don't measure up, not by a long shot, so of course my husband and I went to Nauset Fish and Lobster Pool. If you blind-folded me and took me into that... More

They have an extensive variety -- and I've purchased almost everything they have to offer at one time or another. I've even had them steam lobsters for me when I want to make a quick lunch for company. They even offer recipes on their white board. Funny question from another customer last weekend -- "Are those oysters cold?" You had... More

Easily some of the freshest seafood I've ever tasted. Honestly can't imagine better seafood - MAYBE as good, but definitely not better. My friends and I decided to save some cash by lighting up our grill instead of going to some expensive restaurant. Definitely one of the better decisions of the trip. We found this place thanks to the raving... More
