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

Great fish, good service, but pricey. Good fish to take home. We've tried some of the prepared items, and they are adequate. While a nice, well run fish market, it is expensive.

Whenever we stay at the Cape, we always stop at Nauset Fish & Lobster and purchase lobster for steaming for dinner. We are never disappointed at the quantity for choice and the quality of our choice. This would be a place I would highly recommend!

Best fried clams and lobster roll on the Cape. We stopped on the drive from Boston to Provincetown. The food was very satisfying. It's a walk/up counter with tables inside. In the adjacent store, there are two huge lobster pools, one for large and others for your standard size lobsters. And heaps of fresh fish of many varieties.

Best fresh fish for your cookouts! Not cheap but well worth it! Right off the boats! Cool vibe and the locals shop here! A classic Cape Cod fish store!

Some of the freshest fish on the cape. You come here to buy fish or lobsters. The resturant is next door The prices on some of the fish is higher than shaws or stop and shop BUT the quality is way above. Actually they are competitive a lot of the time

On our way home after 4 wonderful days in Cape Cod, we stopped at Nauset Fish and Lobster Pool to purchase fresh Cod to take home. The staff was very helpful, wrapping our fish with plenty of ice to last until we got home. All the seafood here is fresh and displayed very nicely. We always stop here for the... More
