We stopped in for a light lunch and I ordered only a cup of clam chowder. It was the best I've had on the Cape yet. It was all I had, but I've be sure to go back for more.

Went here one morning for breakfast instead of the hotel. Excellent food and prices were reasonable for the amount of food they serve! Have the Bloody Mary...not as spicy as other places but enjoyable. Also try the Linguica...a Portuguese sausage.

We were hoping for breakfast but realized that the breakfast place was down stairs that were not accessible for my husband who uses a walker. So we were early lunch customers. Bloody Marys were nothing special. The clam chowder had lumps of flour and was...More

We go there once or twice a season. Lots of beers to choose from. Food is mostly pub food. It's good, not real good or great but you can sit by the window and watch the world go by. The Bar can get lively at...More
