The best lobster roll on the cape. Excellent scallop rolls. Other items uneven or so so. French fries often soggy and not memorable.

After a lovely visit to Nauset Light and the National Seashore we sought out reasonably priced seafood, using the web for directions. The Friendly Fisherman's place got good press, and looked like what we wanted. The garden area is a nice place to sit, with picnic tables (not my favorite, but hey..) and lobster pot decorations. One lines up at... More

If you're hungry for a lobster roll this IS the place to get one! So much lobster meat and it's Not swimming in mayo. We also had a fried shrimp (sm) - it was also very good but felt a bit light on shrimp for $14.95 and it only comes with cocktail sauce. That said we will come back again... More

Omitted items from our order. Served frozen stuffed quahogs despite saying they were made fresh. Lobster bisque was watery with very little actual lobster meat. Unfortunately, quality seems to be fading quickly.

Ordered at the counter and sat at a nearby table to wait for food and soft drinks. Part of our order was picked up at the window by another family whose buzzer went off before ours. The staff did not notice. Although the customer returned our son's grilled cheese, they kept the tray with my lobster roll claiming it as... More

This is a seafood restaurant not to be missed when on Cape Cod. I just had the best lobster roll ever, and my wife had fantastic fried shrimp. Both dishes came with fries which were fine, but we ordered a side of onion rings which were awesome. The batter is crispy but not heavy or too greasy, with a sweetish... More

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
