Mixed review...love the spot and atmosphere...however, the male bartenders were absolutely HORRIBLE!!! The nastiest attitudes around...yelling at costumers and stealing their money! I bought 3 beers which was $15 (reasonable) I handed the bartender $40 by accident he gave me $5 back and took the $20 and put it in his tip jar. When we brought it to his attention he threw down my money and snatched the $5 out of my hands...and I mean snatched! It took every once in my body not to say anything and enjoy the rest of my night! He was more concerned with being a "fake" DJ! The real DJ did a good job and didn't need this guy!!! After that, we went to the girl bartender selling at a table and she was sweet as can be! Like I said...love this location but they need to get new bartenders!!!

If you have some time to linger and it's a beautiful summer night-- this is the place. Best fish & chips I have had in a very long while. Amazing fried oysters. Really good fish tacos (but they are small- get 3). But the really best thing is the music, the amazing and creative delicious drinks, the vibe. We went with our two boys, ages 9 and 7, and they were hola hooping (yes, they had hoola hoops) and we were dancing late into the night. This is not the place to go if you're in a rush or you're kind of uptight. It's a chill spot. Really fun and good people.

gorgeous location, right around corner from wellfleet center on the way to the wharf. It's got all the ambiance-twinkle lights, clam shell patio and all outdoor seating, cool drinks, hip music but super relaxed vibe...but the food is just so so. they have a very small limited menu. i would go for drinks and to soak up the atmosphere but get your meal somewhere else.

The food didn't taste fresh to me. The staff was chatting among themselves too much and not paying attention. I eaten here twice and that was enough to put me off.

This is no longer the Fleetian of 2014.
A small area of the former square footage is now called Bol and serves a breakfast bowl of super foods, along with coffee/tea. Another section is a gift shop with crafty handmade items.
The outdoor area is primarily where everyone congregates, around the tiny bar, listening to live music a few nights a week. It's casual and chaotic, appealing to the locals, 21-40ish.
