This may be my favorite place to eat in the Dennis area - love the steamers and the fresh fish. A fun relaxing place off the main roads.

Just get shrimp and fish/lobster to take home. We did not like the crab cakes or stuffy items. Crab cakes were expensive and mostly filler. Very little crab inside them. The shrimp was by far the best we ate.

Great wait staff - Colleen is a gem. I had striped bass - tender and succulent. Cocktails are generous. View of the river and ocean adds to the pleasure. As is common on the Cape, very downscale - summer ambiance.
