My favorite place for seafood in Wellfleet

you can either have a traditional restaurant experience with people waiting on your table or sit down in the long informal shared tables in the front, which is my favorite. The Nantucket bucket is a great standard. But there are a lot of other choices, all fresh and tasty.

We managed to get in on the last day they were open for the season. My girlfriend never had a lobster roll before, and we heard that this place was good. I'm glad we managed to decided to go! Service was friendly and overall very good. Food was very good. Their lobster rolls were bigger than expected; I couldn't finish... More

Great food, great prices and great people. We enjoyed the night this restaurant as it is real old Cape Cod atmosphere. The owners as well as the staff were great. The other tables were full with out of towners who you end up chatting with and a very enjoyable time.There was a bus with a tour going thru Cape Cod... More

kind of a hybrid fast food experience. you order and pay as you enter. the menu is a nice blend of the expected seafood venue with enough basic burgers etc to please everyone then you proceed to seating where a server takes care of the rest. the food is very good and service attentive and friendly attractive building and grounds.

We ended up getting "to go" and the meals came in perfect little boxes in perfect little brown bags with handles. Food was amazing ( lobster bisque, crab cake sandwich). Would go back in a heartbeat

The staff here is amazing. The food was fantastic and the prices were good for the area. The strawberry shortcake was simple and delicious. Fresh strawberries, a biscuit and whipped cream. So good. Free refills on soft drinks and iced tea. Burgers come with a basket of fries. Everything was excellent.

It was really tough to decide what to order at this seafood place! Despite sitting on Rt 6, the atmosphere was really enjoyable. My husband and I had the tuna sandwich and the scallop roll - both were excellent. The portion size was great for lunch. Wish we stayed longer to go back and try more on the menu -... More
