Lots of choices, including local seafood. The salad bar is a great value. The staff knows how to get their diners seated, served and on their way without feeling rushed or crowded.

We had a great meal. A number of fresh fish options creatively prepared. A well-stocked salad bar. The setting is not ideal on a busy road, however the excellent service and food more than made up for it

The prices were not too expensive and the food was superb. I had a plate with 3 types of fish, all good but the Tuna was the best I ever had. Family of 5 bill less than $200... Well worth it!

This is one of our favorite restaurants on the cape. They have the best and freshest oysters in the half shell. The sea bass, seafood linguine and filet mignon are also delicious! Highly recommend!
