We ended up here somewhat by chance, but our party of 6 greatly enjoyed our experience. We arrived at a busy time for lunch, but were quickly seated outside on the terrace and were immediately struck by the wonderful panoramic views. The waitress was efficient...More

We went here on a Sunday afternoon and order outside for take-out. I've been to the restaurant in the past (usually take-out) and the food was ok - nothing special but nothing wrong with it. I am giving this restaurant a 1-star review for two...More

Soy-Free fish and chips were a solid choice for two of us. Wifey likes the lobster roll. Kid liked the Tuna salad. Great views on the deck, just watch out for the gulls or they will steal your lunch.

I'm pretty sure it is. You may want to give them a call (508) 645.3867 before heading over. If closed There's a good take out place across from the entry. I'd go just for the view. :)

Our restaurant was founded at the beginning of World War II by Napolean Madison, the Wampanoag tribal medicine man, and whaler. Presently it is owned by Napoleans son Luther, his wife Anne, and her son Cully. Much of the fish that we use is cought by Wampanoag people from the surrounding waters.
