We were with a bus tour group. I really can't say enough good things. Latoya boarded the bus to welcome our arrival. The staff was so efficient it was almost unbelievable. They were not only efficient, they were friendly and welcoming. This really makes you feel like the establishment appreciates your business. Unfortunately, this wasn't always the case during our...

This place jumped to the top of my favorites list, joining the Sea Glass in Salisbury and Hawthorne by the Sea in Swampscott for oceanfront Ambience excellence. The food was incredibly reasonably priced, and the menu diverse. Our waitress was excellent as we're, from what I observed, the other waitstaff. As others have commented, the boat facade is unique, and... More

Good menu and the lobster was worth waiting a long time for. Possibly Sunday evening after 700pm was the wrong time to go

My family and I have been going to the cape for years, one of the first places we go to eat is the lobster boat.. The outside of the building is unique because of its boat like shape. Inside is very relaxing and vacation like. The scenery out on the patio is so pretty with the view of the water... More

Ate a Supper here and meals for wife and I were good. It is on HWY 28, so it is easy to locate. While wife and I did enjoy our meals here, we enjoyed our meals at Captain Parker's Pub, which is directly across the street.

My husband and I decided to give this place a go. After all, we've just driven by there every vacation for the past 3 years. Not knowing what to expect, because I've read decent reviews and not to decent ones. We were quite satisfied! You have the choice to sit inside or outside...outside of course! The dining area outside sits... More

Went to West Yarmouth to eat at another restaurant, but the wait time was so long that we went to the Lobster Boat. There were plenty of people at the Lobster Boat too, but it is large enough that we didn't have to wait long. We had several of the seafood dishes, including scallops, and everything was satisfactory. No dish... More

My family and I visited this cute spot on our last night of vacation. The clam chowder was outstanding as was the swordfish. Our kids really enjoyed the fish and chips and the chicken tenders, which come with tasty fries or rice but no veggies--odd for a kid's meal. My wife got the inedible lazy man's lobster which tasted like... More

Food it good and service is fast, My husband has shrimp and I had steak. both were very good. the only disappointment was I had sangria which was mostly soda. for what little sangria costs to make, it should have been better. lesson learned order a glass of wine or beer.
