As someone who has lived on the Cape (mid) for almost 30 years, this is a restaurant I have been to many times. It's a good stop on the way to or back from P-town. Today I stopped on my way back home from P-town. I saw a line of people outside the front door and thinking it would be... More

The food is very good and the clam chowder is excellent. The line is long but it moves. The biggest challenge is the limited parking.

If you want beer or wine, you need to bring it with you. The portion of my shrimp meal was large, but it was extremely... More

You can see by the picture how generous the portion was. First time I've ever had lobster in a bun but it was excellent!! And the key... More

This restaurant is fantastic....The food is consistently delicious. Best fish and chips I have ever had by a large margin and compared to many places on the Cape it is reasonably priced with decent portions.
