Last year we were so pleased with the food and service here, but something has drastically changed! Although the clam chowder was still very good, the lobster served to us was tough and dry so that I had trouble chewing it. Very disappointing! We won't...More

Yes, service can be slow but relax and enjoy the best Lobster Rolls on earth-at least ours were and relax-you are on vacation! The staff is nice and friendly and the setting is very nautical-great for families and those who are not chronic complainers.

Met a friends there for before-theatre dinner. Food was good. Service, not so much. Friendly, but slow. And it took until the end of the meal to get our drink order. Suggest you not be in a rush when you go ther!

During our time in Brewster, we ate dinner there twice. The only place for lobster tails. Clam chowder was excellent. Service was very good, especially Jody!!

We stopped in after debating on driving out to Hyannis. There were a lot of people on the front porch so it seemed promising. The waitress seemed overwhelmed, the busgirl looked miserable the entire time. My niece ordered Shrimp Scampi - it was pretty gross,...More

Don't be afraid of going to this restaurant because the parking lot isn't crowded. The people are all friendly and helpful. The food is very good especially the twin lobster dinner. The prices will fit all budgets. No reservations needed and the prices are reasonable.

We were intrigued by the twin lobsters for $20. Hubby and son ordered them. Son's lobsters were over-boiled so the shells were tough for him to crack. I had the salmon. Meh. Not sure I'd go back. Waitstaff was very attentive.

There were only 3 cars when we arrived. We were greeted nicely and sat quickly. Our waitress was very nice and pleasant. The food was overpriced. Since it was over priced, my wife and I ordered steak tips. They weren't tips...they were, I don't know....More
