We took a morning Hyannis harbor cruise and then went for lunch at Baxter. We ate indoors, but there is outdoor seating. I had the seafood platter. The service was prompt and friendly and the food was good. I would go again.

We had a nice dinner on the outside balcony area. Seafood was fresh, clam chowder excellent, and view was interesting.

We come to the cape every year and Baxters is always on our agenda. We order the smelt and eat on the deck by the water. The staff is friendly, the prices reasonable and the food delicious!

Can't believe that they call this the best fish and chips. The coating was so dry and not a proper batter. The fish was so over cooked that it fell off your fork when trying to eat it. Fish had no flavour at all could have been eating anything! And to top it all 2 fish and chips cost $38... More

We try to get there at least once on our trips to the Cape. The fish is the best . The prices have gone up again and are a little high for eating on paper plates and plastic forks, but can't deny the fish is really good. Guess you're paying for the view. If you have a nice warm day... More

We just had drinks but the waitress (Shannon) was very good at recommending a mudslide for the ladies and a great craft beer for the men.

Great location right on the harbour with the option of dining on the terrace. We ate indoors as it was getting dark and a bit cool that evening. Very friendly young staff. Food was fast, good portions, hot and tasty. Worth a visit.

Went to this restaurant 45 years ago- still as good as it was then. Place sits right on the harbor and has excellent fish. My wife and I ate lunch there on the day of our arrival. The Cod fish literally melts in your mouth. We ate out on the deck. We noticed the sea gulls did not bother us... More

Someone recommended this place as a good spot for lunch. It is a good location for boat watching and has both inside and outside spaces. The fish was reasonable but a pool of grease dripped out when I cut the batter. Chips were very disappointing (overdone) and I felt the slaw was poor quality (sugary taste).

Thank Anne R
