We stopped in here because we had read how great the lobster rolls are but we never got to try one. First you have to pay for parking because they have no parking on-site for their guests. When we walked in the staff were watching...More

This was a convenient lunch stop with great views. The Lobster is as most reviews say, fresh and plentiful, but its a high price to pay when there is plastic (or NO!) cutlery, paper napkins, plastic cups and as stated salad in plastic boxes. Convenient...More

The reviews I'm seeing here are all about the lobster rolls, which we didn't have, and they may be accurate, but... what we DID have were the raw oysters at the bar for happy hour and enjoyed them. A tray of 12 sampling regional fresh...More

There’s a reason so many people are using “overrated” to describe this place. Yes, the lobster is fresh. It’s the freakin Cape and lobster is cooked live. It’s really hard to not have good lobster. The rolls seem like cheap hot dog buns from the...More

Lobster roll was not as full as expected. Not tasty. Roll was limp and small.. Much better places on cape of to eat lobster rolls. Not as it was seen on Boston tv .

You know how the pictures don't do a place justice? Well, that is this place. not for the better, but rather everything is just a grade less than you would expect. The stuffed clam app is gross, couldn't eat it - they put a slice...More

Many seem to enjoy the lobster rolls and many share the same disappointment in service. We agree service was cold and forced. Staff appear to be seasonal and don't seem to care about repeat business. Patio has great views but not worth the lax service....More

Barbados Bob was on a diplomatic journey to the United States from his home in the Caribbean. His small ship sailed along idyllically on a beautiful moonlit night. Suddenly the sky darkened and the ship was unexpectedly caught in a squall. Barbados Bob was swept off the top deck by a mighty wave into the sea. All through the night, his faithful crew searched for him to no avail. Little did they know the Barbados Bob had been rescued by a Mermaid and brought to the shores of Cape Cod. As she dropped him off safely on the shore she whispered in his ear, "You shall open a Raw Bar and sell the freshest seafood in the land." Come and see why the Raw Bar has been voted the home of the number one lobster roll in New England by Billy Costa of the TV Diner, Channel 5's Chronicle, The Phantom Gourmet, V.B, and Maria of Fox News.
