This little fried seafood shack is situated over in Barnstable Harbor right next to Mattakese Wharf. It's a small, clean, presentable joint with a small outdoor deck with about 5 picnic tables. And it's counter service. The Service was fabulous. The staff were very friendly, helpful & accommodating. Luv that! They do a great job! We orderded fried clams, clam... More

We visited Osterville Fish twice during our week on Cape Cod. First for a nice piece of haddock and again for a couple of steamed lobster. Both items were very fresh. The staff went out of their way to to provide the extras needed to make it a perfect meal.

There is no inside seating here, but if you have a place to bring your lunch or dinner back to or simply to eat outside ( no tables) , it is well worth the visit. We had the lobster rolls and clam chowder one day and went back again a few days later. We had the fried whole clam plate... More

This is where you come to take food out. You won't want to eat here. It's in a busy strip mall on a major road, so, no ocean view (try their other location to eat in). The food is fresh and they do a lot of volume. The seafood is prepared either fried or broiled. This is a great place... More

Excellent seafood, fresh and clean. There is a market and prepared meals available. Staff is friendly And you are in and out quickly. They also have an affiliate that puts on clambakes. Great!

You can always count on fresh seafood at osterville fish. Lobsters and seafood dinners cooked to order are excellent!

This is a good market for take out seafood. Menu had good selection of seafood. We had lobsters, clams and clam chowder. Everything was fresh. Clams was a bit sandy. The chowder was excellent. Prices are reasonable for the quality seafood you get.

Prices are hefty, but you're getting some of the best fish money can buy. In the fish market everything is super fresh and perfectly trimmed. The take-out menu is limited, but also high quality. The portioned are on the small size (especially the broiled seafood platter.)

We decided to do take out for July 4th rather than to fight the crowds at the restaurant. We ordered two pounds of clams and they were very good and not the least bit sandy. Then we each had a lobster roll, which comes with a choice or one side - either fries or cole slaw. I can't say it... More

We just arrived at our cottage and were looking for something to order and bring back. Found this and was pleasantly surprised. The Clam Chowder was so good and so were the mussels. The fried fish platter for 4 was quite big, but lacked flavor. Glad we tried it.
