Nice little spot across from water. Only had drinks and appetizer because they're closing in a couple of days and we're out of a lot of things.. Service was good Definitely going to return next season and check things out again

Server could care less. She spent more time talking to guys at another table than waiting in us. When they sent our food from the kitchen to serving area.... it sat and sat there until I went and got it myself! I noted someone else bused their own table! And the job of the server? Let's talk food...stuffed quahog was... More

I love seafood, so this place is all right by me. I tried the lobster roll, and I think I've discovered I just don't see what the big deal about lobster is. It's not just this place. Fried fish was good. Pork cuban was amazing. Fun place to go. Saw a minor actor eating there, that was pretty cool.

We were staying at the Inn at Onset bay just down the street. The staff was very friendly and we had a table with a great view of the ocean. The Quahogs were amazing and our food came out fast and was tasty. Certainly worth a stop by if you find yourself in this charming little town.

This was a fantastic restaurant. We sat outside and ordered the large lobster roll. So glad we only ordered one and shared it. It was huge!! And it was delicious!! They had other items to choose from but we were sold on the lobster roll. Would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

The seating outside is limited on busy summer days but worth the wait and once you try the food, it doesn't matter where you sit. Service is great no matter how busy they get! The best burgers ever can be found here! Huge lobster rolls full of prime lobster meat! Parmesan fries are heaven! Great location to people watch in... More

Enjoyed a fun lunch at the Quahog on Saturday. Their twist on a Cubano sandwich is EXCELLENT. Observed several people having the Lobster Roll -- whole pieces of claw meat laid out on a buttered roll with a little lettuce. Not all minced up with mayo. Will definitely order that the next time. Yes, we will return. Luckily, the Quahog... More

Enjoyed our afternoon here. Right across from the Onset Town Pier! Service was good, stuffier were very good, lobster rolls were great, all meat, no fillers! Nice entertainment on the outside patio! Fun for a sunny summer afternoon!

If this is the number one resturant in Onset, then the town is in trouble. Inside dining is bar stools at the bar, The seating outside on a hot sunny day is NO fun. Started off with with ice tea, it was mostly ice very little tea, Mixed drink the same, not sure what I got. Asked about the Oysters,... More

This is our second location now located across from the town pier and town beach in Onset village. We built an inside bar with an outside deck to take advantage of the views and weather. We offer a raw bar, full liquor, wicked good food, and great times. Open seasonally from April through November.
