I've been coming here since I was a little kid and now live out of state, but am fortunate to still frequent the Cape at least once each summer. Our most recent experience is very similar to and consistent with our last several over the years.
The view at the flying bridge cannot be beat, with all the boats in the harbor and the people watching. Definitely need to sit outside to get the full experience. The interior is a little tired and could use a makeover.
Going at an off time ensures no wait and prime seating availability - we were there on a Monday about 2pm. I would recommend the Flying Bride for a late lunch or early dinner, and suggest sticking to the apps and lobster roll. The entrees are just OK, and somewhat overpriced, which is kind of understandable due to the location. It's also a great place to go on those Cape Code overcast days where it's too crappy for the beach but not crappy enough for board games.
We sat outside and had a very attentive server. For our party of 4 (plus a 1 yr old), we ordered bloody marys, chowder all around, onion rings (you MUST get the onion rings), 2 orders of steamers, and 1 order of oysters from the raw bar. Everything was absolutely delicious & fresh.
