Thanks to great reviews on TripAdvisor, we stopped at this place on Rt 6 to have supper. Of all the places we ate during our week at the Cape, this was by far the best. You can order at the window and eat outside or order inside and eat there. I had the best crab cakes I've ever had, and my husband ordered Mussels Italiano, which he loved. we're trying to figure out how to replicate that recipe, as it was so good. My son, who was sampling chowder every place we went, was very pleased with the cup of chowder from here. Affordable, excellent food.. a must experience if in this part of the Cape.

PJs is something of a tradition on the upper Cape and it is good--just not amazing. (I actually prefer The Original down in Dennis.) The fried clams are good but the whole bellies did not seem worth the price--they were a little greasy and a little fishy tasting. The chicken fingers are not home made--at least they didn't seem to be anything other than factory made fare that you could get anywhere. Fried chicken was good, as was the shrimp. You have to fight the crowds in the height of the summer and the wait for food can be long, but it is a fun place to eat. To go orders available, too.

One of the great things about summer on the Cape ~ Love their Lobster Rolls, Clam Chowder & the Onion Rings are amazing! Very relaxed atmosphere, can eat inside, outside, or get your food to go, it's all good!
