“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

12 people for dinner. Last minute reservation. Seated with very short wait. Our server was so pleasant and efficient despite the size of the group and some changing of seats! The lobster and short ribs were out if this world!

“Fantastic Family Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Came with my three sisters, son and niece. Chowder excellent! Oysters the best! Early bird portion was awesome for one sister. Filet was melt in your mouth. Just a fantastic experience.

“You can't go wrong with this restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

We've been eating at this restaurant for the past 10 years and have never received a bad meal or service. Peter, the owner seems to be there day and night just greeting folks. The dinner menu has plenty to choose from whether you crave meat or seafood. All meals are well prepared and well priced. Servers are very friendly and helpful which make for a complete dining experience. Many options on how you would like your meal prepared. Leave room for dessert as the selection is great. Wonderful atmosphere wherever one is seated. I can see why they are voted one of the best on the Cape.

“Consistantly Excellent Food and Ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

We liked this restaurant so much we came back for a second dinner the next day. Excellent food, friendly and efficient staff. very pleasant ambiance - a bit unusual since this is a family friendly restaurant.

Scallops were well prepared and delicious. Bluefish, one of my favorites and not on many restaurant menus, was excellent both as a 'special' and with their 'coastal' presentation.

Desserts were great -specially the Creme Broule (we had it on two separate visits).
