Great place for takeout during Covid! We had the hot lobster rolls (a favorite of my family and hard to find outside of CT). We also had the fried chicken BLT and gobbler sandwiches. Also an order of onion rings. The fried food didn’t travel...as well, but the rest was amazing! Hope to return post Covid to eat inside!More

We’ve been coming here for years, we always get their chowder because it’s the best on the Cape! Just had THE MOST amazing, warm, buttery lobster roll. It was the best I’ve ever had-so fresh, buttery and tasted like candy of the sea! We will...always keep coming back. Reasonable prices for the freshest catches of the day, great customer service. They’ve made curbside pickup very convenient during this difficult time of the pandemic. Thank you! 🦞🦞🦞More

I had chicken wings as an appetizer for $13 you got a half a dozen wings mine were lukewarm. We forgave that so onward and upward to the main course of fish and chips. That’s when the rubber hits the road and quite frankly the...fish was like rubber overcooked and small in size. Big pieces of potatoes for chips soggy lukewarm and certainly not fresh. $22 For that treat overall I would pass on this place it’s sucked PS the only positive thing I can say is the staff were very nice it’s not their fault the quality of the food or the preparation of same absolutely horrific... Cape Cod can do better than this old place!More

Captain Parker's is a must for me anytime I am in the Cape. Even with the challenges of the pandemic you will receive delicious food and terrific service. The restraunt opens at 11am daily. Closing times may vary at this time. The chowder is as...delicious as always. Salads are very fresh. Seafood is amazing as well as the steaks are burgers that are charbroiled and cooked to perfection. This is a place for everyone. The children's menu will satisfy even the most picky eater. You will be so glad you came and leave looking forward to returning.More

The chowder was why we came but for Jim it was too thick. I thought it had a good taste to it but not too many clams in it. However, the stuffed quahog combination was awesome. One of the best stuffies I ever had! Jim...had the fried cod with the crunchy crust, biggest piece of cod I ever saw in a restaurant. He said it was perfect. I got the fried shrimp platter with roasted red bliss potatoes as a sub! SO good. The way they partition the tables with plexiglass is great and all employees were practicing safe Covid precautions. Our waitress, Abby, was very attentive and fun to talk to.More

I think that after a few visits here, I find myself comparing any clam chowder to what they have at Capt Parker's. It is our favorite clam chowder. This time we added on a well-stuffed quahog and some very tasty poutine made out of steak...fries. Service was very prompt and friendly. It was another great visit. I'll also add that the restaurant had great Covid practices in place, including plexiglass partitions hanging between tables.More

We were looking for a lunch place and drove by and saw how busy it was so decided to give it a try. My husband was craving seafood since we were on the Cape. He started w a mug of Clam Chowder which he said...was very good and hearty. We didn’t know if you get it in a mug, you get a mug to take home! Matt was our server and he was awesome with a great personality! I ordered the burger, my son got the kids chicken fingers, my daughter got a huge Caser salad and Hubby got fried clam strips. Everything was huge portions and the homemade potato wedges were off the charts!!! We loved the food and experience and would go back!More

Again, not my first time here. Always come here for the chowder and lobster roll and as always it’s amazing. I swear I had over one whole lobster worth of meat. Hubby got the beef tips and they were filet mignon quality with the most...unique sauce.More

Supposedly they sell their brand of Chowder at the local super markets not sure if they can ship to your house, I don’t think they do!!! It’s to bad it would have been very popular and a successful business.......
