We stopped by here for lunch, mostly because of their claim of having the best lobster rolls on the Cape. Well, NOT! They did contain a lot of lobster, which I gave them a star for, but the sandwich was virtually tasteless, no flavored mayo...More

We stopped in here for our first time on the way into Ptown. We were seated outside and had a very nice waiter. Menu was just ok. We ordered steamers and they were VERY clean and tasty. The other items we had were just ok.

I liked this place and would go back. I had the fish sandwich and no complaints. The kids meals are served in cute sand buckets

This place was just alright. They claim to have Cape Cod's beat lobster roll, but it didn't compare with Sesuit Harbor Cafe's lobster roll (in East Dennis). The kids were excited to get their meals served in a sand bucket (which was great for us,...More

This location is right off of Route 6 - very convenient. I loved the yellow awnings and outdoor seating at this location. It is a small restaurant and specializes in...you guessed it, Lobster. You can choose your own lobster. The lobster roll was one of...More
