We stopped in for lunch after a long hike and really enjoyed this place. Lobster roll and fried cod were both very good and they have absolutely the best fries.

This was my first visit and I was blown away! Cute decor, amazing staff (thank you, Julius!!), and one of THE best lobster ravioli dishes I have ever had. The beer selection was pretty good, and the creme brulee was also phenomenal. A fun place with a great atmostphere!

Good food, friendly for dogs outside on patio, really good lunch and breakfast options. They brought my dog a bowl of water because it was hot outside and I thought that was really sweet. Great food, great location, great service.

OK for the view or people watching Watching the people on commercial Street can be your gas. The backside of the restaurant has a nice view of the beach and bay. But don't come here for the food or the service it's just mediocre

Great place to sit outside and people watch on commercial st. If you like lobster then I recommend the lobster salad. Big scoop of lobster over mesculin salad, the fish tacos are great, as well as fried fish. Have always gone for lunch and enjoyed with friends.

Had fish and chips, 2 chowder cups and mussels - decent price for good food and draft beer in P-town. Nice location - view of harbor - and attractive decoration.
