If you want a huge place that accommodates large groups, this might be it. Its menu was large enough to accommodate all tastes, but the food was mediocre (at best) and the atmosphere more like a circus tent than a dining establishment. The only two positives our group of 6 experienced were a wonderful waitress and the best spicy Bloody... More

Really, really like this place. Love the atmosphere, service excellent, and a broad menu for landlubbers or sea goers.

Visited here as part of a tour to Cape Cod, they are set up to get the group in and out in a short time. The menu is clearly for tour groups, with the drink, food and bill produced quickly. This was the only place where the tip had automatically been added, the food was reasonable. I would like to... More

This place is mecca for vacationers. It looks like a boat and it is on the water. Lots to look at and plently of parking. We went my birthday. I ordered the lobster bisque. It was very good, a bit heavy on the sherry and a tad bit skimpy on the lobster but quite tasty. I also ordered the lobster... More

I've been coming here for over 20 years and the food and service is still as good as it always was. This is a seafood restaurant so if you're not in the mood for seafood it's not the place to be.

We sat outside at the furthest table to the left and against the building. We had a great view of the water which was like a river and even got so see some fish jump. I had the twin lobster meal and my son had an adult cheeseburger which was a 12oz angus burger. The food we had was great!... More

The food was good and there was a variety but the best part was our waiter who was attentive and helpful and who told great stories.

Ordered baked stuffed haddock with rice and barely ate half. I asked for bread which the nice server brought but still left feeling underwhelmed. The one thing i did like was the nice outdoor seating and my server was very friendly and accomodating. I would not return again next year.

The restaurant looks like a boat with sliding glass doors at the tables that open up to an outer deck on a harbor. It's a very casual family restaurant and they have a lot of seafood options for a good value. We enjoyed our cod dinner but were very annoyed by the out of control children across from us whose...
