“Fried Clams! YUM!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

We stumbled upon this place and were happy we tried it. We got the fried clams and onion rings. Best clams I've ever had. You can sit on their dockside porch, on a picnic table, and watch the boats come in and out of the harbor. A great Cape Cod experience.

“This place is a MUST!”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

I spend summers in Falmouth and this place is a MUST visit. Everything I've tried is so good. Their clam chowder is the best I've ever had. Don't even get me started on their lobster roll, it's to die for! And who wouldn't love sitting out by the water watching the boats and enjoying a delicious meal?

“Overlooking the harbor and the fireworks with best fried clams ever !!”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Best spot in town. Fantastic seafood, watch boats go in and out of harbor. Sit on the "hidden" top deck and enjoy the breeze. And on the 4th of July ----- the best fireworks show in New England.

“Good food, excellent location, average prices, poor customer service.”
Reviewed 6 July 2013 via mobile

The women taking orders were not friendly and have us a lot of attitude when we asked for more ketchup. Then when we couldn't locate our drinks we were scoffed at like we were idiots. I guess we should have know where to look. Management seriously needs to clear out these bad apples. Otherwise the location is awesome! The food is average, not bland but nothing to rave about. It is definitely a classic clam shack.
