“The Fish You Buy Today Swam Last Night in Cape Cod Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2007

The Friendly Fisherman is a combination fish market and seafood snack bar. The title of this review is taken from a plaque that hangs on the wall over the fish counter. I can honestly say that you WILL be able to find the freshest fish, shellfish and lobsters here. All during the day, fishermen make their deliveries. What is not available earlier in the day, perhaps will be later in the day. Their fish market also has fresh garden vegetables, freshly baked breads and pies, as well as anything else you would need to make your meal complete such as boxed rice, pastas, seasonings, etc. We have eaten once at the take out window and the food is also very fresh and enjoyable, although there was alot of lag time between when we placed our order and when our number was called. There are several picnic tables and even a small playground for the little ones to enjoy while their parents are still eating. We look forward to trying the take out eatery again, but really do prefer to prepare and eat their delicious seafood at our Cape House rental when we visit Eastham in the summer. The freshness of their seafood is incomparable!
