This may look like a typical tourist attraction, but the food was quite good. My wife and I had a lobster roll sandwich and a fish sandwich. They were both tasty and the portions were huge. There is a nice patio outside and is a good choice on a sunny day.

Arriving without a reservation, we were squeezed in by the helpful owner and enjoyed an excellent meal.........I thought the knowledgeable servers were particularly impressive.

We stopped to pick out a couple of lobsters, some shrimp and blue fish for dinner. Great variety of fresh seafood and they will cook and crack lobster. Really great selection, but a bit pricey.

This establishment's employees need to take a crash course in customer service. We arrived around 5 pm on Monday night to buy fresh seafood. The young man seemed exasperated when asked to see how big the littlenecks were...one would think he had to run up three flights of stairs to get one. We felt rushed and unable to get exactly...

I shop here every summer for weeks. Pro: High quality fresh fish. Cons: Price. Some members of the staff are very rude. I was so offended in the early summer I avoided it the rest of the summer. Try Orleans Fish Market.

Sorry Nauset Fish, I used to be a customer. Friendly Fisherman's in North Eastham beats you in freshness and price. In July your prices for striped bass and flounder were $5 more per pound than FF. Your other location, Youngs at Rock Harbor, used to be a favorite for lobster rolls but is not so good any more.

This place has super fresh fish. Everything is beautiful. We've been here many times when a large fish is getting dropped off by a fisherman for processing and sale. They also steam lobsters for you - and since we are often at the Cape during one of the boys' birthdays, this is one of our go-to meals to take back... More

We stopped in to the market and were aware that it was close to closing.Our intention was to get information to purchase lobster for dinner on Friday July 29th. The young man was very accommodating to our questions and then suddenly like a nor'easter a girl, not a woman came running out shouting we're closed shutting off the lights in... More

I live on the Cape and when I have visitors, I will only buy from these guys. They are the Tiffany's of seafood and that comes with a price. And the high cost is ALWAYS rewarded. But this time, my visitors wanted mussels, which I have never gotten here before. I have to say that they were a disappointment: out... More
