We went to eat here with 6 of us including a 2 year old, the service was prompt and friendly, the food was delicious, we just made it in time for the early bird dinner, great value, the salad bar was superb!

“Great food and service in upper Cape”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Found this very nice resraurant hidden among the numerous clam shacks on Route 6 on the outer Cape. Excellent (and varied) menu, great servine, good ambiance, nice and reasonable wine list and mostly excellent food. Needless to say superior oysters. A great fresh salad bar was a special treat.

“Our 'Must Eat At' every year.”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

One of the best around. Salad bar is top notch. Seafood is even better. Been there many times over the years and I don't think I have had the same thing twice. Peter (owner) treats everyone well when he greets you personally upon entering. Even remembers us by name. A must 'Go To' for all ages.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

12 people for dinner. Last minute reservation. Seated with very short wait. Our server was so pleasant and efficient despite the size of the group and some changing of seats! The lobster and short ribs were out if this world!

“Fantastic Family Dinner”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

Came with my three sisters, son and niece. Chowder excellent! Oysters the best! Early bird portion was awesome for one sister. Filet was melt in your mouth. Just a fantastic experience.
