Great fried seafood - open year round. Part of the one of the best seafood markets on the Cape. No wonder the fish is so good here. In the off season, they offer daily specials that include chowder and an entree.

Very good fish connected to the best local fishmonger. Specials every day with eat-in or takeout. Busy in the summer. Most fish is deep fried but there are broiled fish options. Very casual with quick service. Good fried clams.

This is a tiny place (5 tables) where you order and they call your number when your food is ready. Most people seemed to do take out. The clam chowder was delicious. Lobster roll at $14.95 was a great deal and very good. This was...More

Been coming here for decades and it’s still a “must stop “ on the way to our cottage on the Cape. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu... The fried clams and fish, the chowder and the coleslaw are particularly compelling. Even the...More
