I came here on recommendation of the lobster rolls and I was very disappointed. It had some shells in the roll that I felt like a cracked a tooth on. My wife had the fish tacos that were good though.

Food was overall good until we found a fly in my son's mac and cheese. Needless to say everyone lost their appetite after that. Disappointing.

The service was great. The clam chowder was nothing to write home about but the Tuna Pad Thai was fantastic. We got their earlyand got seated right away....there was. Line when we left. The restaurant is very noisy though and lacks charm for the prices.

If you are a seafood junkie as I am you are always on the lookout for top quality, fresh options. Doesn't hurt that this restaurant also has a fish market and processing plant on the premises. A couple of dishes really stand out for me: Traditional lobster roll served on a grilled, buttered brioche roll and using chunk lobster claws... More

Great spot for lobster rolls. The soups are outstanding and the variety is very good. Everything is very, very good. The service, friendly atmosphere and food all are excellent.

We loved the ambience of the outdoor patio. Food was highly priced, beautifully presented, but a little overcooked and slightly bland. I had the scallops with risotto. Scallops were a bit chewy and risotto lacked flavor. I traded with my husband half way through and he came to the same conclusion.

The seafood was so fresh and well prepared and our waitress was wonderful! We made a dinner out of having four different appetizers! Mussels, clams, oysters and Quahogs! Yep, Quahogs are amazing local clams that are served in a stuffing. They have inside and outside dining. Excellent!

Brothers Dave and Dan have brought an amazing cross between solid traditional Cape Cod food (lobsters, oysters and clams etc) and creative new age dishes with locally fresh sourced ingredients. I was just in Europe for 2 weeks and have too say the swordfish dinner I had sitting at the bar was beyond "WORLD CLASS"! Cooked to perfection with some... More
