Great fried anything. Big portions. Just too small inside. Never able to find a table available so I don't recommend groups.

It looks almost like a dive. We weren't sure this was the right place. But boy! does it have the best fish and chips EVER! They use fresh haddock, and the pieces are huge. Very good and filling, with good french fries, too. Sir Cricket has a fish market next door, and the next day we bought two 4 lb.... More

We decided to try Sir Cricket's after reading some good reviews. The restaurant is small, there are some tables inside.There is no table service, you order at the counter. Food was tasty. We had a lobster roll which had nice hunks of lobster meat in the sandwich. The fries were perfectly done and the fish & chips & coleslaw tasted... More

This place is the gold standard for fried clams. Forget about those places that say they've been voted number 1. Stopped here on the way back from a quick getaway to the outer cape and, having been here before, knew that high quality would await. I ordered a medium size box of fried clams and they didn't disappoint. Glad to... More

Small place but busy and the fish and chips were tasty although a little too much breading. Coleslaw and fries were also good.

On the way back from Coast Guard Beach, searched Trip Advisor and found this place with pretty good ratings. Hmm, we thought it was average. Yes they have tons of fried seafood - we thought it was just okay and a little over priced for the portion size. We tried the fried clams plate $16.95 and fried shrimp $11.95 1/2... More

They should have a "pretty good for the value" rating on Tripadvisor beause that's what this place is in a nut shell. It is quickly served which is a plus. The Fish and Chips satisfy and there is a good amount of it. The oil it is cooked in a light tasting oil and the flavor of the fish is... More

Fried seafood heaven. We had fried shrimp, Jr Captain's platter, clam strips and a crab roll. The crab roll was OK and everything else was very good. The slaw and fries were also good. You order at the counter, grab a bottled drink from a vending machine and hope for a seat (limited) inside or there are a couple of... More

Sir Crickets was recommended to us by some locals when we were looking for a place to get some food. They said the portions were huge and the fried seafood platter was really good. We did try it and they were right!

THe chowder id very good and a great value on the cape. The lobster roll has a fair amount of mayonnaise. I prefer without mayo, however that said, this one was chock full of lobster meat and very very tasty. again great value for money. fried oysters and clams looked and smelled fantastic
