If you want a bang for your buck, here's the place. The food is good solid food for families at reasonable prices. Kids no problem at all! The atmosphere is created by being in half a boat on the river with outside patio dining as well as indoor seating. Best pina coladas on Cape. A solid value!

Wasn't crowded when we went. Good deal on twin lobsters. The warm bread was to die for. My seafood dish was excellent but not gourmet. Keep that in mind. Great for families.

We ended up leaving before ordering anything. Had been there several years ago and was not impressed. Decided to give it another chance. Big mistake. On the positive side we were seated right away. Just had a chance to glance at the drink specials on the blackboard - did not know if there were meal specials. The waitress came over... More

I ordered a cup of Clam Chowder along with a lobster roll! The lobster roll was delicious! The clam chowder was also delicious but the cup was very very small for the price! Our waitress did an excellent job! Overall gave it an A-!!

Typical cape cod eatery on the water. Nice sized place, indoor and outdoor seating. Plenty of options to choose from. She had the captain salad which was lacking the seafood. The portions seemed small, and I had the lobster boil which gets you clam chowder, lobster, corn, potato and muscles. We also got a steamer appetizer which was delicious and... More

I can't rate the food because we left before even ordering anything. This may had been the most disorganized place I've ever been to. From the hostess, to the bartender, to the waitress... wait, we never saw a waitress after sitting at our table for more than ten minutes. The front host station took our name, and then "wasn't sure... More

We were 4 adults. Our guests wanted lobster(larger than 11/4pd) and fresh seafood. The good news we were told 45 minutes for a table, but name was called with in 30 minutes, took longer to stand at the bar and get drinks. The waiter introduced himself asked if we were ready. Being a local resident with out of town guests,... More
