“Friendly cafe with great sandwiches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

We had lunch there today. My wife had a Fishwich (fried cod) and I had the Philly Cheese Steak. We shared fried onion rings (this is pre New Year's, so the fried food violates no righteous resolutions. Everything was delicious, the fish was fresh, and everything was served nice and hot. This is a great little cafe next to the Old Fire House, and a dependable spot for breakfast or lunch. No dinner. The atmosphere is spartan, and one's utensils are plastic. And there are cases of beverages that would be better out of sight. Finally, as of yet there's no sense of decor: the wall hangings are a random collection of posters, photographs and collages. Countering this is the fact that the sandwich menu is just fine, and the service is quick and friendly. You go here for the food, not for interior design breakthroughs. And they serve takeout, on the way to the beach.

“Do not miss!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

One of the best lobster rolls on the Cape is found at Nauset Grill. I highly recommend the Lobster Roll Club Sandwich. It is delicious and one of a kind. WOW!!!
The chowder is also very special.
This is a great place for breakfast and lunch. In the summer, you are able to dine inside or outside on the picnic tables and watch the world go by.
The young couple that owns the Grill are quite delightful and you know you always will have quality food with a warm smile.
The location is perfect for wandering the quaint shops in downtown Orleans either before or after lunch or breakfast.
Enjoy!

“Best Lunch in Orleans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

I've been lunching in Orleans for a long time (40 years or so) and have seen a lot of places come and go. The Nauset Grill is the best lunch in town. The Cape Cod Ruben alone is worth the trip, clam chowder is the best in Orleans and the owner seems to always be there with a smile. Kind of across the street from Friends market, to the left and in front of Post Office.

It's only been open a few months but it's future is bright

Best place for a quick lunch in Orleans. The Cape Cod Ruben alone is worth the trip. Clean, great food and friendly owners. You might have to look a bit for them but it's worth the effort
