We stopped by the Friendly Fisherman for lunch. The staff was friendly, the food was good. The outdoor seating was nothing fancy but was fun and relaxing. I would recommend it.

Pleasant outdoor seating with shade and without. Lobster roll stuffed to the gills (although not sure lobsters have gills)

Always fabulous fresh fish. Outside dining where you can kick back in comfortable beach clothing (bathing suits and cover-ups).

The service and food at Friendly Fisherman is a wonderful Cape Cod experience. We make sure we stop in for a meal whenever we visit North Eastham!

You park, walk up to the counter and order your food. They give it to you a short item later and then you go back to their patio to eat it. The food was good. It was not fine dining, but it was good food and the counter person was friendly. I would go again.

The best lobster roll on the cape. Excellent scallop rolls. Other items uneven or so so. French fries often soggy and not memorable.

After a lovely visit to Nauset Light and the National Seashore we sought out reasonably priced seafood, using the web for directions. The Friendly Fisherman's place got good press, and looked like what we wanted. The garden area is a nice place to sit, with picnic tables (not my favorite, but hey..) and lobster pot decorations.

If you're hungry for a lobster roll this IS the place to get one! So much lobster meat and it's Not swimming in mayo. We also had a fried shrimp (sm) - it was also very good but felt a bit light on shrimp for $14.95 and it only comes with cocktail sauce. That said we will come back again... More

Omitted items from our order. Served frozen stuffed quahogs despite saying they were made fresh. Lobster bisque was watery with very little actual lobster meat. Unfortunately, quality seems to be fading quickly.

Ordered at the counter and sat at a nearby table to wait for food and soft drinks. Part of our order was picked up at the window by another family whose buzzer went off before ours. The staff did not notice. Although the customer returned our son's grilled cheese, they kept the tray with my lobster roll claiming it as... More
