Some touristy places just rely on their location too much. Definitely the case here. Situated right on the pier at Barnstable Harbor, this restaurant appears to offer an evening of fine seafood dining as a complement to the seaside view. It doesn't deliver. Part of the problem is found in the considerable size of the place. It gives the feeling of an over-sized hall that just doesn't have enough staff to keep up with the tourist hordes seeking that special ocean meal. There is an over-reliance on fried fish - the type of meal that you can get at any of the seafood "shacks" on Cape Cod. We started with the clam chowder and got a kind of "McDonald's" version of this soup - bland and floury. However, we have been here several times and there is always a crowd. So one has to understand there will always be a new-tourist demand for average food in a great location.
