I had a great time at this place. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the cocktails were delicious. Also loved the truffle fries, short ribs and sushi. Definitely recommend.

We had heard a million ads on the local radio so we decided to drop by when we were touring around Hyannis. The bar staff is super efficient but a bit too attentive - could chill a bit. We had a slightly overpriced martini which...More

I don't know if they're open that early but it doesn't seem like it would be a problem although the atmosphere is pretty "clubby".
