“Nice change from "resort restaurants"”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

We have been vacationing on the north shore & the Cape for a long weekend. We hit the BHT bc it looked like a place locals might eat. We had soups, clam chowder & tomato basil; we enjoyed a mead (super yummy) and a porter draft with them. No complaints - in fact our server even provided us with samples before we ordered the glasses!

Then we went all out on ice cream, we had the schneeball a huge ball of vanilla ice cream coated with cocoanut and drizzled with raspberry sauce - so good. We also had the "Adult Ice Cream" made with Baileys Irish cream. I'd love them to open up another location for us to enjoy in Florida!

“Sorry We Stopped”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

We had heard good things about this place and since we are ice cream-aholics we decided to stop and enjoy the "adult flavored ice cream". We were greeted after about 5 minutes with a small glass of water-no verbal greeting. After sitting for about 15 minutes with no further communication, we left.

“Local resident”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Years ago, we frequented this restaurant. Then the chef either left or got let go. Since that time the food quality had suffered seriously along with the service. Although we are local residents, we don't go here to eat, we'd rather travel a little further to find better food. We're patiently waiting for the quality to return, stopping in once a year to check, hoping the owner sells out or hires a "much" better chef.

“Great seafood”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

We were looking for a nice place to get some great seafood. This place was cute. We sat at a table in the bar area. The fisherman's platter was great, and so were the broiled scallops. A little pricey but worth it. We will definitely go there again if we're in the area again.

“Recommended to us and would recommend to others visiting Sandwich”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

Relaxing and friendly atmosphere, hearty food for a great price! Just what we needed after a full day of Cape Cod exploration.
