Seafood Restaurant

“One of our summertime favorite places. Angela votes this the best lobster roll on Cape Cod despite all other claims! During peak season go early or be prepared to wait in line and risk not finding a parking spot. If you find parking, don't dismay, the line moves quickly! We often choose lunch during the busy season. Seating is all outdoors on communal picnic tables so the atmosphere is beachy casual which includes BYOB. In addition to bringing your own beer or wine, bring cash, this is a cash only establishment althought there is an ATM on site.”
