It's a drive up/walk up window that you order from. You can sit in but some of the fun is the walk up. We ordered everything from broiled scallops, fish tacos, hotdogs, tuna sashimi and full rack of ribs. Everything was done really well. The girls at the window were friendly and helpful. We went 2 nights in a row.

We stopped here for lunch. They have both indoor and outdoor seating or take out. I had a salad which was just average. My husband had a fried seafood platter and lobster bisque. He said his meal was excellent. This is an easy place to stop when traveling route 6.

This is one of the best places to get the delicious and famous Portuguese Kale Soup. But don't stop there, P.J.'s offers a menu replete with seafood favorites that will cause your stomach to thank you every time.

If you want a view of the marsh or any body of water this is not your place. If you don't like standing in line not your place. If you want a romantic seafood dinner not your place. But if you want the best freshest Oysters on planet earth.....THIS IS YOUR PLACE. The line moves quick.....but not quick enough for... More

Mark Bittman who does a NY Times cooking review said they had the best clams on the Cape. He was right but they also had great rare tuna tacos and baked chicken. We called ahead and our takeout order was ready in 15 minutes. They do have indoor seating also.

best lobster roll in the world!!!!!! A summer favorite and a consistently good meal. Not cheap for fish shack food, but worth every penny- so fresh, so tasty.

We stopped here for lunch before heading to the beach after driving for the day from Boston . Our hearts sank when we were told there were no fried clams as the morning delivery had not arrived. It took us so long to decide what we wanted instead and just as we were about to place our order the clams... More

the seafood is good the onion rings outstanding. I was a little disappointed the lobster roll came with mayo vs the drawn butter I was hoping for. I should have read the menu more thoroughly. The whole bellies were good as were the fries. A good family friendly place.
