The food was terrible. I had the lobster bisque, which was literally thickened lobster juice, as well as the fried whole belly clams, which were majority scraps. The food was overpriced for its quality. A member of our group now feels like throwing up. We will not be returning.

The Surf Club is one of the most no-nonsense, basic and good eating spots in P-Town. They make good drinks and offer fresh, nicely made food. Nothing fancy, not an elaborate menu, but good and honest simple food. Friendly staff and a terrific location right on the waterfront of downtown P-Town.

Popped in here for lunch on a walk. Good location. Grilled chicken sandwich served on a soggy bun with fries which were just ok. Coffee rather poor also. Toilets rather disgusting and absolutely no room to swing a cat!! I wouldn't recommend it.

We stopped in for lunch because it was close and it was cold and blustery. The haddock Reuben was just ok and the fries were a little greasy. The chicken sandwich was average. For awhile we were the only patrons in the place so you would have thought the waitress would have stopped by a couple of times. Nope. At... More

We ordered the fried scallop sandwich and a 1 1/4 lb. hot dog. Both were delicious at a good value. It was unseasonable warm for October so we sat outside and enjoyed the gorgeous cape view. Everything was so delicious and great location right in town near parking lots.

I'm not really sure where to start! like everyone else on trip advisor we were taken in by the views. The first hint of something being not quiet right was the sign and bucket of menus by the door saying take one and seat yourself... OK! We sat outside waited 10 mins and then another party sat down next to... More

Right on the wharf and close to parking, this dining spot offers a perfect location and very nice harbor views. That's about it! The food is expensive and nothing special. The calamari appetizer was on a small plate and was just fried rings - $14.95! A small portion of fish and chips for almost $20. For three of us with... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant. The food was good but it is the view that makes it. We had seafood and a sandwich and it was good and priced a little high. We would probably eat there again if some of the other places had a long wait to eat.

We wanted to sit by the beach and shore and we're seated outside on their picnic tables. Beautiful view. However, the clam chowder was too salty and the broiled fish and chips had too much garlic. Go for the view, not for the food.
