Great chowder and fish and chips. The naked mimosas where wonderful too! Definitely worth a visit. The Kale salad was huge and very tasty.

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.

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".
