Red lobster

Really big place with A/C down by Coast Guard Station. All kinds of seafood: shrimp, fish, clams, etc. Order at one end of the counter, get pager (red lobster) and then go pickup your food at the other end of the counter. Food was very good.

We were looking for a quick bit to eat before heading home so we stopped here. There was a large group of diners in the back room when we arrived. We both ordered clam strip plates. One with fries and the other with onion rings. After waiting over 15 minutes my husband checked the status of our food. The woman... More

Enjoyed a meal here. Food was tasty, reasonably priced. Staff were efficient and friendly. Lots of room to eat in or take out. Was VERY busy when we ate there on Mother's Day, and all mothers got a complimentary dessert or glass of wine, which was a nice touch!

This place is a favorite of mine ,best fried food on cape cod ,great prices ,great view of the canal. Food is on paper plates so no high end place. But you will enjoy. Much older clients. Good value for the money. No wait staff . You do it all. Enjoy.

Of course there will be a wait on Mother's Day but it was only 30 min from time food is ordered till it was ready. When ordering, make sure you know what you want by the time you get to counter. staff efficient and helpful in order process. Because it was Mothers Day, free cake or glass of wine was... More

One of the best places on the cape for fresh fried seafood. A little hard to find if your not familiar with the area. The food comes out quick and hot when your red lobster vibrates!! The batter is not too heavy. Clams, fish, scallops are wonderfiully fresh. I've been here both on and off season, the quality is consistantly... More

Stopped by here early spring and was happy to find them open when so many of the Cape's seafood, on the water places are closed. The food was great, fresh fried and baked seafood overlooking the ocean. The outside dinning would have been great had it not been 30 degrees. staff was friendly and efficient. Just a note their liquor... More

This is a seafood shack. It doesn't aspire to fine dining - no candles, no starched napery. It's a good, honest, seafood-and-no-frills joint, where you place your order at the counter and go back to collect it when it's ready, and on the evening we were there it did everything right. The fried scallops I ordered were the juiciest and... More

Been 3 times on bus tour stops, never have liked their food. I ordered a veggie burger - it was served on toast instead of a bun, was of poor quality, and was dried out. The french fries were OK. Their alternatives for people that can't or don't eat seafood are pitiful - think twice if you're with someone that... More
