Cute place. Nice people. Excellent lunch! I had the Haddock Reuben and it was delicious! Perfectly fried fish. NO grease. Virgilio's rolls and yummy "beach fries". We would easily recommend to others.

Great food and right across from the beach. I did not dine in but did go to the take out window and everything was very good. You can call ahead with your order if you would like.

Stopped in for lunch after reading the reviews. Definitely not disappointed! The shrimp boat was incredible. The pannins perfectly grilled. The coleslaw fish and crunchy. The waitress was very prompt in attending to us and the coffee and ice tea was continually refilled. Most definitely would recommend to anybody looking for a simple , relaxing delicious lunch!

Wow!! I would bet that there was an entire lobster on this very nicely toasted frankfurter bun! And, the french fries that came with it were light colden and, if they were not homemade, the certainly could have passed for it. The place is pretty tiny and the restroom is incredibly tiny but, the food, the service, the cleanliness are... More

My husband and I were in town for a few days and after reading the reviews and recommendations from locals, we stopped in for lunch. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was very good. We shared a Greek salad which was one of the best I have ever had. We also had the native clams and haddock,... More

Unpretentious and clean. We had two lovely breakfasts there. On Friday night Nate''s was open for dinner and we had outrageous fish dinners at a much lower cost than many of the other restaurants in town.

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
