“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

A delicious cut above the rest, and a good wine list. Incredibly fresh sea food, the striped bass special was very good. A great choice for couples. Bring your iD!

“Dining on the Cape in the summer is a fire drill ...buyer beware...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

We have been to this restaurant on two prior occasions and we and our companions were very pleased. Today's lunch for 4 was very different. Everything was inferior..the only way to explain it is that the summer demands are such that a restaurant can often not competently keep up. Previous excellent service was ordinary at best...wine by the glass menu was excellent ...bread was offered 45 minutes after we were seated and 30 seconds before our entrees were served..my fish taco was bland...had to request additional aioli to inject some taste..the fried calamari was breaded so heavily that it appeared to be fried clams...yuck..the Tuna burgers were served medium instead of the promised medium rare..big difference when dealing with tuna...sweet potato fries did not compete with other available versions..my chowder was excellent..did value exceed price?...35 per person with wine...no...in the past it had... Moral of the story? Dine in during high season or reduce your dining expectations if you dine out.

“Try lunch if early dinner is not for you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

We don't like to eat early or go to restaurants that don't take reservations but we like this Place.So we go at lunch although you need to be there by noon to get one of the high boys in the bar by the window which we like! The Lobster bisque is too die for. The fish and chips must be flash fried as they are not greasy. The mussels are excellent in a lovely broth. The wines by the glass are a good choice. Hope they change back to last year's rolls as they were the only disappointment!

“Consistently good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Every year when we visit the cape we eat here, every year it is excellent! This year is no exception. Although our waitress was a little disinterested, food was still great. Love the menu! The small cozy atmosphere is charming.

“yummy yummy yummy!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

This was location 2 of a night out that started w drinks elsewhere...this was DEFINITELY the winner of the evening. It is a tiny, cozy little place with a very small bar-that's the downside. The food was incredibly fresh & flavorful & everyone at the table loved what they ordered. Service was excellent & personal. It's a great place for an intimate cozy dinner w friends or date night, wouldn't necessarily recommend for kids.
Will definitely return!
