Visited with family who eats here often. They said best clam chowder anywhere and I agree. Ordered a lobster roll to go with it. Sweet and succulent. The staff is excellent and ticket times very quick. Highly recommended if you don't get to Ptown often.

A rainy, chilly night in P-Town with few options for dinner deep in the off-season. The place was packed. A good sign. Straight and blackberry/pomegranate cosmos were excellent. Clam chowder equally so. But when we got to the entrees my wife’s prime rib and my...More
