Great Place!

Mrs. M had the fried shrimp platter. The shrimp were very lightly battered and cooked perfectly. I had the clam chowder and it was superior! My crab cakes were just okay, needed a little more seasoning and moisture. Service from Jeff was very good. Loved the view! Prices were reasonable.

Six of us dined at this restaurant. Lobster is not in season yet and was very pricey around the Cape. In fact, when we went to Provincetown, the lobster pots were just starting to be put out. We all ate the twin lobster special of two 1 1/4 pound lobsters. My wife and I split an order, which the staff... More

I was not in the mood for seafood but I had the Delmonico Steak. It was a quality cut, very tender and juicy and cooked medium the way I like it. The atmosphere is like a typical seafood house. I would go back again

I give this place 1 star for the drink, but it is because the pizza was awful. Had it as take-out -- dough not cooked, tried to discover the sauce, smelled funny, tossed all of the "crust" in the trash. My belly is still bloated from it. Don't order the pizza! The people next to me left a full mixed... More

We had asked for a recommendation for a restaurant where we could get lobster, and the Lobster Boat was suggested. My friend and I have both had lobster before, but I've never had a steamed lobster that needed to be taken apart. It was quite the experience! I'm really glad I was wearing the bib! Our servers were fantastic -... More

Ate here 3 times during our stay in Cape Cod. Shared the Cape Cod fried platter than includes a steamed lobster with hubby on the first day we ate there. All I can say is that it was a heaping platter of freshly fried seafood and a delicious lobster. On our second visit, had their Cranberry, Walnut and Lobster salad.... More

Unfortunately we dropped in for dinner, because we missed to make a reservation in our favorite restaurant. The atmosphere of the rooms is the one of a canteen, the table and chairs were were greasy, the service was very unfriendly, and the quality of the food reduced our appetite remarkably (all the four different dished were of the same poor...

Vegetarians beware. Its all sides. Crappy cole slaw, mushy corn on the cob. There is a passable pasta that the chef was willing to add veggies to, so that was nice. And a big greek salad. But the atmosphere is fun, classic Cape Cod. And if you eat fish, everyone seems to really be enjoying it. And the service is... More
