Don't know what that one reviewer was talking about....our server was friendly, the food was great and we sat in the bar, which had a good atmosphere to watch the Sox. We had the ribs and the pulled pork and went home with leftovers. Unless its your last day on the Cape, avoid the plate sharing charge and just take home some for lunch. Skip the garlic toast -the corn bread is better :)

Very generous portions and friendly staff. Went with our 1, 3 and 5 y/o toddlers, had a very pleasant dinner. Will be back for sure on our next trip to The Cape.

After a long day on the Lower Cape we tried the restaurant after years of vacationing in Eastham and Wellfleet and driving due to traffic or timing. This we stopped in around 4:30 for an early dinner. A good selection of fare for all tastes, but I would stick to the lead items and seafood.

We're not barbecue snobs, but we found the bbq sauce a little sweet but not overwhelming. And when the server didn't know what kind of bbq it was or wasn't we didn't start with a lot of confidence. Maybe I'm watching too much Restaurant Stakeout with Willie Diegel on Food Network, but Servers should know the bbq style of the food when asked - generally. I know there are differing styles, but when they say it's like a mix of all of them....is a bit like " I don't really know, and don't care."

Our kids- under 10 - loved the appetizer steamers and kids chicken tenders. They're generally easy to please, so this isn't a surprise. All in all we didn't not like any of our selections - stay close to the Restaurant's sweet-spot of BBQ and Seafood, but be prepared for a bit pricey of a menu. The portions were generous so they didn't scrimp on product, just not sure the price to product formula works for me.

We had the Steamers @ 14.00 - a healthy appetizer for 4 of us. Nice size - not too large, clean and very well cooked. The kid's menu chicken tenders - standard fare of Sysco frozen tenders with good fries.

Our dinners of Pulled bbq and Ribs and Brisket were good, but we were built up to have great so it was a bit of let-down that way. Their salads were fresh, well done and dressing to the side which was appreciated.

Overall if their prices were a bit more reasonable we'd be likely to make more visits. They did offer an all you can eat fried clams @ 24.00 and fried chicken @ 15.00 so maybe next time we'll try that vs. the BBQ.
