I highly recommend eating here! We had a wonderful breakfast. Lots of choices and the prices were fair! If you have a big party you better call for reservations. Setting is limited but it's worth it!

Bearskin Neck was too busy for our taste so we wandered up thru town to Front Beach. The Tripadvisor app told us Nate's was across the street and rated highly. We decided to get our lunch to-go at the take out window and walk a bit farther up the street to the benches at Back Beach where we had a... More

We stopped in for dinner based on TA reviews. I ordered a lobster roll which seemed to be made from an entire lobster. Delicious! The other members of my family ordered fried seafood entrees, which were perfectly prepared. Worth a stop.

We just had a wonderful lunch at Nates. We thought about ordering to go and eating on the beach right across the road but ate inside instead. Very pleasant efficient staff. My husband said his burger was perfect. Flavorful and cooked perfectly. I had a small order of fried clams that was very generous. Too much for me to finish.... More

Ate breakfast here one morning while staying just down the street...very yummy. They are only open for dinner on the weekends, and they change over to their lunch menu around 11am.

I had an awesome lobster roll and my travel companion the friend clams... We were really satisfied, friendly service. It was very small but we got there at a good time and were seated quickly. Lovely, unobstructed view of the beach. The food was really good and the service great!

I love this place. Convenient location, close to everything. Cheery décor. Wonderful family owned business, great service. You can get window service in the summer and bring your food onto the beach to eat, it's almost like beach side service!!!, it's so close. The clams are some of the best I have ever had, and I am a die hard... More

Went here on a whim, looking for breakfast. They change over at 11:15, so be prompt. Outstanding food, great service and very very small. You will wait, so enjoy the beach view, time passes quickly. We had five different meals and all were awesome. When we come back, we will eat here again.
