We had googled this place as one to get a great lobster roll and it was!! We had a great lobster roll that is served with French fries. It was a great price for a great meal. It has a nice small area to eat outside which is great for kids.

We enjoyed a tasty lunch of lobster rolls and fries. Then, we went right next door to pick up fresh scallops, which we brought home and cooked later. The scallops were obviously quite fresh, local, and extremely good!

We often stop here on our way in to Truro when staying on the Cape. We find it to be casual and good choice for either eat-in or take-out. The lines are nowhere as long as other clam shacks such as Moby Dick's, despite the fact that the food and prices are very good.

The Friendly Fisherman is a family friendly, informal restaurant. It is semi-self serve. The food is what gives a great rating. Sumptious lobster rolls, and wonderful fried seafood

We have been coming to the Cape since 2001. And we always had great memories of the Friendly Fisherman and the amazing lobster rolls. Well after not making it out to the Cape for several years we were really excited to get some of those rolls. The food was as good as we remembered. Lobster rolls were still overflowing with...

Okay. We placed order and counter clerk read back correctly. Came up wrong (but charge was correct for what we received, so did not overcharge us). Pick Up clerk told us to get back in very long Order line, didn't bother and just shared food. Fish sandwich was only okay. Husbands crab, shrimp and clam cakes were very good!

Unlike Arnold's, which doesn't serve baked fish for lunch, Friendly Fisherman's does. The option for the kind of fish changes, but on the day my family and I went, the two options were striped bass and flounder. I chose the flounder. The bread topping was light and flaky, and the portion of flounder was quite generous. The fish itself was... More

My kids generally love mac'n cheese and both thought it was terrible! I caved to a purchase of a $4.25 hot dog. Just 1, no fries or chips. The ice tea had no ice! I gave 3 rating bc the salads and swordfish were very good. And, there's small play area to entertain kids. Sword fish tacos were good but... More

Staying in the area for a few days and wanted to try some whole belly clams. Arnold's is known for them, but we passed by the Friendly Fisherman and decided to give them a try. We were not disappointed. Fresh Whole belly clams, fried perfectly. Very tender and tasty. A bit pricey but that is not a surprise considering. Definitely... More

It's simply lobster. (Large chunks, not pieces of legs) little mayo on a little bit of iceberg lettuce in a roll. It's the way lobster rolls should be made everywhere, we'll done! Some other places on the Cape (and elsewhere) use some large pieces mixed with a lot of small filler, celery, parsely, etc. Friendly Fisherman's is most traditional and... More
