My daughter loved hers and my dish was my favorite in West Yarmouth. I had the linguini in cajun cream sauce with lobster. Simply amazing!!!!! I want to go back for... More

It seemed they had just been doused in hot sauce. I had the twin lobster which was quite good, however, it did not come out with hot butter as one would... More

When you want a lobster cooked any style and sometimes at a special price, this is a place to go. The selections are good and did not leave hungry.

When this place was called Patti's over 40 years ago it was a splendid place. Today however it did not measure up. Mark took our order and then provided us a loaf of of warm bread.

The lobster was delicious. The Greek salad was great. The service was quick and so friendly. And the ambiance was the best thing about this place! Definitely recommend it!

We ate here for dinner one night fast friendly service and great food. The lazy man's lobster was filling and the kids meals were well priced for a good portion size. I recommend this place for sure.
