“Definitely Eat Outside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

Tasty seafood on a great location on the water. Fairly quick service... especially considering how busy it is. We got a ton of food for our money and we loved all of it.

“Looks touristy--anbd it is--but the food is pretty good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

My wife got the two Lobster $19.99 special and loved it so we will be going
back every year. Other food was more than adequate. Some nice views in the back of a rather large dining room. Good for kids. Fish market next door.

“Visually appealing from the outside yet another story on the inside”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

After a long day of whale watching in Provincetown, a game of tennis and some beach time my husband and I were filled with hunger pains. We ventured off to find some long awaited delicious food in Yarmouth at 8:00. To our surprise, during the low season not many restaurants are open past 9:00 pm so it was slim pickins to say the least!

We pulled up to a very cute and brightly lit restaurant in the shape of a boat with high hopes of good food. It looked relitively busy with the many cars that were parked outside so we gave it a shot.

There was no one there to greet us when we walked in and once we were greeted it looked as though they were annoyed by our presence. The decor attempted to embody the ambaince of the sea, however, the stench of grease overpowered the senses.

Food - very greasy and buttery but quick. Price was okay. Portions were huge!

Service - attentive, fast, reliable yet not very friendly... that's okay though!

Beside our table, another couple was very unimpressed with the meal and asked for a refund and to speak with the head chef. Our experience was not that bad but it wasn't great. It's not a place that we would go to again or recommend to others who go there.

“Nice Location - but Overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

Our group of 8 arrived as Hurricane Irene approached. Almost noone in the place, but plenty of waitstaff. Food was OK, but not impressive. Many items were cold when served. My wife sent her steak back to be warmed. Refills on soda are NOT free. We won't be going back.

“Future Repeat Customer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2011

The hostess greeted us and asked if we'd like a booth - we are not picking and said that was fine. As we got to the table, she looked over and saw a nice table at the window and asked if we'd like that instead - of course! Our waiter Eric was very upbeat and informative. We saw him deal with a large party of pain in the butts, and he was just as cordial to them as everyone else! We had steamers and mussels, both which were delicious and a good portion. The kids had mozzerella sticks that were super cheesy and they thought the chicken tenders and fries were awesome! The overall price was decent as well.

The atmosphere and hospitality were much appreciated. The restaurant was full and the waitstaff was cruising right along, but never a tension of chaos. Looking forward to returning.
