“Good Seafood - Local Staple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

This place has a great selection of seafood, both local and shipped in. It is a solid place to "know what you are going to get." Steamed shrimp is done right. Good view from the upper deck. Inside the service is friendly. If you want a good seafood meal without going overboard, this is your spot.

“Way beyond expectations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Went there on a whim and was blown away! Place was packed, so we waited at the bar. Bartenders were incredible! Busy, but got to us in a hurry. The hostess somehow remembered we were waiting for a table and found us one quickly. The food was cooked to perfection. The carrot cake is HUGE and the best ever. Tuna was fresh and the cornbread is to die for. Will definitely return

“delicious”

We went during restaurant week. Their crab soup was delicious. The other items we got were delicious as well. The restaurant itself is adorable. Very cape cod like.
