I visited the restaurant August 2017 and they were very busy ( Friday night). The bar area is large and the food was very good. The bartenders were friendly and I enjoyed the atmosphere. I recommend stopping by if you are in the Hyannis area.

I don't know if they're open that early but it doesn't seem like it would be a problem although the atmosphere is pretty "clubby".
