You can form a positive opinion of a place when things go wrong. It's how it's handled. In our case, we never complained. The server came to apologise. The order had gone missing in the kitchen and our food was taking longer than it should,...More

An employee on the ferry to Provincetown recommended this restaurant when we asked where to get the best lobster. It's small and lively and fun! And the lobster and mussels were wonderful.

Nice bar, with some water views. If you get a large goup in he bar, they seem to quickly take it over (second visit, second time it's happened). Food was fair, service ok. Shame they are not making more of the deck area.

Went here for the chowder and it's one of the best. Wife loved her fried clams. My swordfish portion was small and way over spiced and priced. Service was outstanding.
