Get them in and get them out. The food is ok, nothing to brag about for sure. The service is robotic at best. What do you want, any desert... bye. Not my idea of a relaxing meal. Sorry.

We enjoyed our experience at the Lobster Boat. I had the Fisherman's Platter and it was very good. Our server was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was pleasant. We'll definitely go back the next time on Cape Cod.

Nice looking restaurant inside and outside, but food was disappointing. I ordered a salad topped with scallops, shrimp and 2 lobster claws. The lobster claws were very small (the shrimps were larger!) and the baby greens salad was slimy and starting to mold. I told...More

Unfortunately the restaurant was extremely expensive. The food was your typical fried seafood. Not sure if it were the shrimp or clams but my daughter became ill after dinner.

The Lobster Boat can be very busy early evenings as it is popular with tour buses but can always fit you in.The service is always first class, in good weather you can sit outside by the river for a really relaxing lunch or diner venue....More
