I always loves the friendly fisherman but after being treated rudely by their staff I would not return. Just as easy to go to Arnolds which has friendlier service.

I am a lobster roll lover. I have tried them all across the east coast and the ones here are the absolute best. Picnic tables and byob...not your atmosphere winner but who needs that when you have love at each bite!

We always go to The Friendly Fishermen when on the Cape. We've only ever gotten the fish sandwich but it is delicious and definitely worth the stop.

Small outdoor dining area attached to the main fish market building is nice with a little play area to keep the smaller kids amused. Lobster rolls ($21) aren't cheap but boy are they good; loaded with lobster and seasoned just right. Sampled the clams strips...More
