We had a wonderful dinner at the Lobster Boat in West Yarmouth on a Saturday night in high season on a beach day. We arrived well before six and were seated immediately. Staff told me they get the most business between five and seven but that it’s impossible to predict when a crowd might show up at their door. .... More

This is a family style restaurant, no frills, just regular food. The server was pleasant and helpful. We wanted lobster and ordered the twin lobster at market price. It didn't disappoint. Served with corn on the cob and fries, we felt it was a good value. If you just want a good casual dining experience, this place wil fit the... More

Do not go to this tourist trap "food factory". Wednesday night visit, wait to sit outside was 45 -50 minutes. Told to wait in the lounge and "have a drink". Only 2 bartenders present, one dedicated to the filling the orders for the wait staff. The other seemed to be a waiter/bartender/computer repairman. It took 9 minutes before the bartender... More

The view is also very nice, located along Plashes Brook, with nice view of a small marina directly across the brook.. The waitress was attentive, and very pleasant. We were a party of (8) adults.The food was average at best. We all ordered a... More

It's a nice place with very polite staff and decent dishes. I liked the mix of pasta and seafood, but the portion was way too much for me, so I guess that's a good thing, at least you get a lot for what you pay. The waitress was Bulgarian, very nice and very friendly. Very pleasant atmosphere.

We got dinner to-go while staying in West Yarmouth. No complaints- food was hot and packed nicely. The batter on the fried scallops was one of the best I've ever had. Lobster was super fresh. We didn't look at the reviews before picking it but we liked the name of the place! My husband did indicate that he had to... More

Waiter was great, very friendly & outgoing. Food was average, "waterfront" is a small canal/river. Prices high for what you get.
