Have been here twice and enjoy the food here as well as the view of the harbor in Hyannis. Easy to find and very personable staff. Wish they were open year round.

This is our third visit in about two months! We ordered different dishes in those three visits and all have been excellent and never disappoints us. The service is great, staff are friendly and accommodating. And mostly, the view of the harbor is quaint!

As far as I know, they do NOT take reservations. It's a fairly large place and I did go back on a Saturday night around 7:30 and had no problem getting a table with a view of the marina. Good luck and enjoy!
