Got to the Cape for a few days of R&R with my late teens daughter, after a grueling summer of work for both of us. We have never been here, so had to get our bearings. Were hungry and wanted to sit by the water, which is the main reason we selected this place.
We kind of expected more of a fancy place from the description. The dining room was closed but they serve in the bar and on the deck outside. It is nice by the water, which is not ocean but an inlet with lots of little boats. No beach. The tables are those plastic green picnic tables and chairs; I have the same set in my backyard at home. No tablecloths, which is fine, just not your typical fine dining experience. The service was excellent, pleasant and fast. I had a glass of pinot grigio, which at $7.50 seemed like a deal after a summer of paying between $12 to $15 in Boston restaurants for a glass of wine that I can buy at the supermarket for $9 a bottle. We shared an app of crab cakes for $12 (alot of crab but I like them crispier, with a bland, overly sweet sauce) and a cesar salad for $6 (over-dressed, again with a bland, overly sweet dressing---no garlic that could taste, pre-packaged croutons, and pre-grated processed parmesan cheese). We also shared a lobster, which was yummy, served with lots of butter, asparagus only slightly over-cooked and a good pilaf. We had a regular bowl of ice cream for dessert. I think the prices reflect the food and milieu, if anything they're on the cheap side for being by the water. Most of the clientele are families with young kids and seniors, which might account for the bland food. All in all, an average dinner out while on vacation!
