Outrageous chowder must stop to experience true Cape Cod fresh clam Chowder, the best! Pier is 100’ away, local fishermen bringing in their daily catch all to be enjoyed by you. Can’t get any better than that.

Where else do you see the fish you are about to eat (well, not literally, but close) being brought in by the fishermen? When we were there we saw them offloading mostly skate and huge numbers of dogfish (also called rock salmon). You can watch...More

Fried fish, fried potatoes, lobster rolls, and clam chowder. What you'd expect at a location like this. All were fine but not particularly memorable.

The portions and food were great, however, we did not know what to expect. The seating is 5 picnic tables outside ( tables covered with bird poop) and the place is infested with bitting insects. Great place if you are taking the food home to...More

Awesome seafood. No frills, no pretension, just classic New England seafood. Incredibly good lobster bisque with a nice hint of sherry that wasn't watered down with milk like some places. Deliciously crunchy clam strips and excellent fish and chips.

Boiled lobster, lobster roll were both excellent. Didn’t try fried clams. Fairly typical seafood shack but seating inadequate so lost a point. Meant entirely for takeout.

The best clam fritters I’ve tasted! Everything looked good here. It’s a fish market and small take out window. Great views! We saw one seal who was very cute. Rest rooms available. We will go back.

Just average. Tasteless fish n chips (try beer batter) and overpriced lobster rolls. Service could not crack a smile and only two small tables to sit customers outside. Just "ok".

Basic deep fried seafood but done exceptionally well. Crisp batter. Picnic tables outside. Not fancy but a nice meal.

This is a no frills operation. Walk in choose your meal. Pay for your order and you get a call number. Ten minutes or so wait time usually gets you a pretty good fried dish. It’s a standard deal with OK fries and a tiny...More
