Just plain fabulous! Brimming with claw meat. Very lightly dressed with mayo. No horrendous line to wait on.

Great service, very simple but outstanding food. The Lobster Rolls were to die for. We would go back there any time. The prices were very fair for what you got.

We came here for a casual dinner on our first night in Wellfleet. The lobster rolls are absolutely amazing! We loved them so much we ordered them again for take out for our bonfire on the beach night. The onion rings and corn on the cob were also quite delicious. The atmosphere is very relaxed and we brought our own... More

Fantastic fresh seafood. The clam strip sandwich is always my favorite thing to get, but I also love their scallops and shrimp. For seating, there is an outdoor area with picnic tables, some flowers, and a few swings for children to play on. My only negative comment is that you can't buy a roll/sandwich alone, it has to come with... More

Our family has been coming to Eastham for 20+ years. The Friendly Fisherman is our #1 choice for fried seafood and lobster rolls. The layout is very basic. Picnic tables, order and pick up at windows. But they have consistent quality year after year. The Fisherman's Platter is an unbelievable amount of food for 2-3 people with a sample of... More

We chose Friendly Fisherman's at the suggestion of a friend who lives nearby. It happened to be the only day in months for a real, soaking rain on the Cape. This was unfortunate, because the parking lot developed immense, deep puddles which were nearly impossible to step around. Also, since the restaurant only has port-a-potties, we had to go outside...

Very good lobster roll. Quite big and very little mayo. The slice of romaine looks nice, but toss it aside -- it makes the sandwich difficult to eat, and detracts from the taste of the lobster. $20 for a lobster roll is resort pricing, but I really did enjoy it.

Casual outdoor dining, order at the window and food is delivered to your table. Ate here with extended family including kids aged 12 and under. I was very impressed with the big chunks of lobster in the lobster rolls--just lobster and a little mayo. Only one little hitch, one of our group ordered cocktail shrimp but fried shrimp was delivered... More

My wife and I were looking for the quintessential lobster shack meal of fried clams and a lobster roll. We had eaten here before, but not for a few years, so we decided to try them again. Service was quick and efficient, the food however was decidedly average. I ordered a whole belly clam roll. I got an empty grilled... More
