Many signs at this fish market/roadside restaurant remind you that they are highly rated by Trip Advisor and Zagats. They are also well-known for their lobster roll. We went twice, and had the same opinion both times. We went back the second time in case we were missing the boat the first time. The first day we ordered the fish... More

I tried their famous lobster roll and wasn't disappointed. Huge pieces of claw meat topped the sandwich... pieces so big they needed to be cut to fit in my mouth. Other family members had the fish and chips and seemed to love every bite.

I went here prior to reading any reviews for clam chowder thinking it's the cape how could you screw up clam chowder until I ordered it and it looked like the dirty water in my washing machine. Well, lesson learned. Much better chowder available elsewhere. I did actually eat the chowder but grey watery just didn't cut it for me.... More

Great fried fish...and if you drink there is a package store literally next door as this is a BYO establishment, just wish could substitute rings for fries...

A great place to avoid the crazy lines at Arnold's with friendly staff and excellent fried and fresh fish. Always helpful and they have excellent pies.

We had the lobster rolls...they were large and delicious. Clam chowder great too. They have a BYOB option that we wish we would have known about....very casual and a great place to stop for a quick bit. Play area for kids. Everyone very friendly. We went for an early dinner and by the time we left it was packed.

Smaller seafood place, but I like supporting smaller family places. There is an order window, a pick up window, and the third window is for trash after you are done enjoying the food. Lobster roll is yummy and comes with fries. Seating is outside with tables either in the shade or without.

Friendly Fisherman's is a casual restaurant that serves up a good lobster roll. It's a pretty good portion, but not really enough to justify the price. It's served with fries but not other sides. You eat outside or under a cover, but I wouldn't recommend going there in bad weather.
