This restaurant was recommended to us by the visitor center and we were very dissatisfied. The fish and chips were like a fish fillet you buy Frozen and had no flavour. My husband had the lobster roll which was ok but $ 25.00 too much!...More

The location is beautiful right on the Hyannis pier overlooking all the beautiful boats- Seafood Bisque was so thick and huge chunks of seafood- I needed a knife to cut into smaller pieces. The fried scallops were very light and sweet and the Fish and...More

One of few restaurants where you have a choice. Service dining area with a small outdoor deck or self service area also with a larger outdoor deck. If you have a boat you can go park it on the dock and walk right up into...More

Its a necessity to go here every summer. Even just for drinks and people watching. There are always tourists that don't know what things are on the menu or that are eating steamers with the necks on! The food is good and consistant but a...More

Fish and chips were very good. My son ordered a chicken sandwich and it definitely wasn't cooked well. Tasted rubbery. When I informed an employee at the front counter all she said was "I'm sorry about that." Nice location right on the water with outdoor...More

Let's put this place into perspective. Yes a very scenic harbour style establishment but we chose to eat in the non-service area basically, with picnic tables and absolutely no service all do it yourself. Firstly the drinks were of average quality and average price for...More

No - Baxster's NEVER take reservations! Although you may wait to place an order, there's almost always plenty of space on the cafeteria side. If there's a wait on the bar/sit down side (21+ at ALL times) it won't be too... More
