We had lunch here and were overwhelmed with all the choices on the menu board behind the counter where you place your order. The seafood options were good, hearty and fresh.

Huge menu up on the wall of every type of seafood. You can't go wrong. Very casual and friendly staff. Open for lunch and dinner with an ice cream window adjacent. What more do you need?!! Went several times during our stay. Yum.

The Gawker is perfect for lunch and informal dinner. Fresh local food, much is fried. I ate many meals there as it was right across the street from where I was staying. Very family friendly.

Very friendly staff serving fresh seafood. Choices to satisfy any diner. A decent selection of beer/wine. Growing up on cape cod I am very familiar with this style of dinning.

We really enjoyed this restaurant, ate there twice during the two days we were there. Everyone was very friendly, seafood was fresh and plentiful. Great value for the money. Loved the setting on the water and the decor inside.
