A LOT of hype about this place so we tried it. Apparently fried EVERYTHING is the way to go. Mounds of fried stuff, but for someone who stays away from fried in favor of grilled or broiled- the food was ok. We had blackened swordfish...More

Casual dining the Hyannis harbor. My husband said his fish and chips were the best he’s had outside of England and my kids devoured theirs! I got the broiled scrod which was moist and light. I was a bit disappointed that they could not offer...More
