The exec chef tried hard but his helpers seemed disorganized. The kitchen didn't look particularly clean. Servers were literally running. I wondered if they were poorly trained, inexperienced, or badly managed. Or all three. Woman leading us to the table was confused and couldn't answer...More

This is a quaint spot in cozy harbor, fun to navigate by boat. The fish tacos are very tasty as are the fish and chips. The only negative is that they build in a 20% tip which is fine if you get good service, but...More

The entire menu is overpriced. Everything is extra--fried, coleslaw, etc. Lobster roll had gobs of mayonnaise. Service was very friendly and view is beautiful. But sadly, I left restaurant feeling taken advantage of with pricing--in all of New England from Maine to NH to Cape...More

A first-class casual restaurant on the shore of a beautiful little harbor. We're lucky to be able to get here by ten-minute boat ride, but we'd drive a long way if we had to. Our favorites are the haddock tacos and the all -crabmeat crabcakes,...More

Can’t beat the view with the sun shining and the little turnabout boats coming in! Fish tacos were great. Salad was terrible. Greens were wilted and too much dressing. Service was OK but overall, very pricey. Clever the 20% gratuity included— no room to make...More

Oliver's is consistently good, year after year. Most wait staff are high school or college students and while not overly experienced, they provide sincere service. Recently we enjoyed the special pulled pork sandwich, the grilled salmon with veggies, as well as the lobster roll. Both...More
