Lindsey's prides itself on always purchasing the freshest fish from local fishermen. A bad filet of haddock is NEVER acceptable! Please come back and we'll be happy to serve you what most enjoy as the freshest seafood around. This one's on us!

We try to make a trip to this restaurant about 4 or 5 times a year. We have never never been disappointed. I highly recommend this restaurant. Most people seem to leave with extra food that they will eat later.

Headed to the Cape for a quick getaway. Wanted to bring some of Lindsey's famous seafood bisque, and surprised to find out they regularly freeze some for frequent shipments to fans around the world! Able to bring several pints home for family!
