I'll start of with the positive, the service was good, that's the only positive. The food was EXPENSIVE and way over cooked. I ordered the scallops and clam plate. The scallops we so over cooked they were like rubber. The clams as well. Small portions for the price. Will not go back

Food was mediocre. We had an array of clams and they weren't presented well nor were they tasty. Service was basic, and the ambiance poor. Expensive for what we got. We won't return.

Husband and I stopped for dinner. So many choices but we decided to share the Captains Platter. The food was excellent and was enough for the 2 of us. Employees are wicked nice and very helpful. I have also been there with my Mom who love the clam chowdah and I love the seafood chowdah.

We had the baked scallops & fried fish & scallop combo plate. Both were good. The only negative was watery coleslaw. Mine was very watery. Prices a little high, but it is Cape Cod.

My kids and I went on fathers day because everywhere else was packed. I was pleasantly surprised. I order fried fish and shrimp with onion rings, it was delicious. The serving was big, the food was fresh. The place slowly filled up as we ate and all seemed to have a good meal. The prices were cheap. An extra bonus.

One evening I stopped by on a whim. I heard great things about this place. It is a small place, very casual with very nice waitresses. Upon looking at the menu I thought the prices were a little high. I ordered a clam chowder. I have to say this was the best clam chowder I ever had. I was sorry... More

Went off season so we were served quickly. Fast and friendly. Reasonable prices too. Coleslaw was the only negative.
