This is a perso al favorite. I love dinner here and lunch is a particular favorite. The tuna steak sandwich is very special as are the poke dishes. Love the ambiance as well.

We opted to eat in the cozy bar, rather than the white table-clothed dining room. We were immediately welcomed by the maitre'd who immediately asked our names. This is fine by me, but a bit too familiar for my wife. Several other servers welcomed us...More

Casual up scale dining with great food and a great atmosphere. Tavern side has the bar and high top tables for dining. Same menu throughout. Bistro side is casual but fine dining with white tablecloths and blue napkins. Really makes you feel right at home on Cape Cod.
