The best lobster roll award must have been for " the best photo of a lobster roll". It was way over cooked and there was virtually no flavor at all. The onion rings at Burger King were better, it's like they used bisquick and nothing...More

Two lobsters, one lobster roll and one happy family. The price was reasonable and the food good. I recommend giving them a try if you are interested in some good seafood.

I had a nice lobster roll on a Sunday night. Unlike the famous Arnold's, a mile north, there were'nt crowds or a wait. Table service was good. Better than the typical fish counter cafeteria on the cape. Good for families and large groups.

Purposeful venue for a quick meal. Ordered lobster shanty (cold) and warm lobster roll. Both was excellent, the warm roll had less mayo so had more lobster taste. Hearty portions. Good experience

Good food, comfortable environment, decent service. Was with a large party and we all felt we were served well on a busy summer night. Been here multiple times, most recently in July 2012.
