That's what it's like eating there. You expect the old crusty captain from Jaws 1 to stroll in for his morning eggs. Good service. Good cape food. Cash only. Offer a non sweetened ice tea please!!! It's 2016! Will stay on our annual visit list.

This is the type of place you want to keep to yourself but it's too good not to share. We have been making a pilgrimage to Capt. Cass every year for longer than I can remember. No pretenses, no credit cards accepted, no liquor license....More

We have been regulars here for over 10 years and it is simply the perfect place for dinner. Delicious. Consistent. Freshly caught, local fish is picked up by restaurant staff daily in Chatham. But the best part is the staff. Total gems. Lovely people. BYOB....More

Cute little shack covered with buoys. Great spot for a quick lunch. Bring your appetite because the portions are hearty but the food is great. Fish & chips dish and lobster roll are awesome!

One of my favorite places to enjoy seafood on Cape Cod. This is an old building with few amenities, but it serves great food. This is a cash only facility, and you have the option of BYOB.

OMG. I got a combo of fried belly clams and fried scallops. They were the most delicious, freshest melt in your mouth things. The scallops were so tender and flavorful - I've never had scallops that good ---- I didn't know they could be that...More

and sit in this little spot with blue gingham curtains blowing with the wind. Unpretentious, limited hours(11-2; 5-8) and oh so worth it. Fries, cole slaw and lobster salad roll excellent.
