We felt welcome here from the moment we stepped in. The woman who greeted us made us feel instantly relaxed, and we were lucky enough to also have her as our server. Food was yummy, the mixed drink I ordered was surprisingly strong (woohoo!) but also good. Service was attentive and well timed. We were able to enjoy our meal and have some nice conversation without being interrupted, but when we were ready to leave, our bill came quickly. I would say that the food was a little pricier than we're used to, but then again it's the Cape. Can definitely see us coming back here.

Seven of us met there and all enjoyed great meals and tasty, ample desserts. Nice, stylish atmosphere, too. However, the shabbily dressed server never made eye contact or smiled, and she didn't even reach to serve us our food. She just handed it to someone to pass around the table. The host was sullen and didn't speak, although he would walk by occasionally and stare at us in a cold manner.

Over the years drove by but never stopped. Never heard anyone praise or mention it. This weekend stopped in on Sunday night. The front desk was pompous. The restaurant was empty and he suggested he could accommodate us at the bar! Looking down without eye contact he mumbled "reservations only". Don't need such BS on the Cape. Atmosphere is as appealing as a wasted up dead haddock on an August afternoon.

Wonderful atmosphere and service. A favorite with locals for good reason. Fish is the primary entree, dispensed creatively in generous portions. Good, limited wine choices.

We've never had a meal here that we didn't like. Small town service in an upscale, quiet restaurant. We loved the tapas bar menu for a quick lunch!
