“Fresh, fresh, fresh seafood”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This restaurant has it's own seafood market and fresh catch which it uses to determine it's daily specials. Nice relaxing atmosphere for families and great spot that is a bit out of the way from the normal tourist routes. That it is open year round is my favorite part, as that is hard to find for a place like this on Cape Cod.

“Lobster Reubens - Enough Said!”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

I've never had a better sandwich! All they need to do is add sweet potato fries and I might never leave! The atmosphere is great, very casual with a nice view. Parking is a nightmare on busy days/nights, valet pretty much required. I agree with other reviews that the food is a bit overpriced, however that doesn't stop me from satisfying my cravings for lobster here! The service at the bar was ok. Not stellar, but acceptable. Well worth the visit.

“Great calamari”
Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

Stopped here on a whim; calamari was delicious.... Fried banana peppers and a nice chili sauce. Lobster roll was good but I'm no expert. I didn't think it was overpriced as others said.

“Decent food, but way overpriced”
Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

Food was OK. Portions are decent and all food looked and tasted fresh. Unfortunately, prices are way over the top. No one should have a kids meal for 6 bux that does not include a drink, especially when it's just a half box of Kraft Mac and cheese with some Parmesan sprinkled on it.

Adult meals were very pricey (23 bux for a lobster roll, which was good but for the price, not really). Service was also lacking. Although pleasant, the waitress was slow and orders came out incorrect.

I don't mind dropping 80 bux on a family of 4 to eat, but it should be for exceptional food and great service.
