A lot of their seafood is filled with bread crumbs, the decor is out dated. Was not impressed and would not go back

Awesome service!! We had a few awkward questions and our server had no issue when it came to finding out answers for us. The pianist was a nice touch and the atmosphere gave you a good feeling with your dining experience. Reasonably priced and great food!

Came here with reservations and we were quickly seated. Grandchildren got steaks and they loved them. I got Colorado lamb chops served with baked potato and mint jelly. They had the texture of steak - not at all like baby lamb chops - and were cooked perfectly medium as I had ordered. Very good chops. We also had the chowder... More

I went here with my wife and friends for dinner on the Cape. We have been going to the Cape for many years but had not been here for dinner. The food was good, not great. The veges seemed like they were sitting in a pot for a while, not fresh at all. The mains was good, not great. This... More

Very busy place, no reservations accepted; waited maybe 5-7 mins. Not a place to linger, very noisy. Seafood was great, service efficient. Decor a little dated and 'fishy' as expected. Would definitely eat there again.

A little pricey for type of seafood that we had, Lazy Lobster was too greasy, lobster ravioli was o.k. & seafood casserole was good. Cornbread & rolls were very good.

The atmosphere was wonderful and there was a piano player for music. The food was below average. My lobster was very rubbery, did not seem fresh. For what we paid, I think we could have had a better dinner elsewhere.

This restaurant is very popular and I would suggest booking if you want to eat in the restaurant area. We were seated in the bar area which was nice, but a bit noisy. I had the fishermans platter which was a huge portion of deep fried cod, scallops, prawns, clams and calamari on a bed of fries. The two bit... More

Server Branden was very good Soup was very good The fish and chips was lacking.

Also the soup was lukewarm when first served and had to return... More
