Had dinner with my husband and 2 children. We were seated promptly by a courteous hostess, our server was pleasant and efficient and our meals were good. Nothing stood out as outstanding, but it was a nice family meal.

While on a bus tour here our tur guide recommended this place. So glad he did we all were so satisfied. One had the best lobster rolls ever. Two had the fish sandwich and fries. The fish was so white and mild and the best light coating. Clam chowder the best with plenty of clams. The surprise one had a... More

My husband I went here because he wanted seafood. We ordered the calamari boat and the food came to the table dry, flavorless and over cooked. For the entree he ordered the Cap'n Nick's special. The mussels were overcooked and the pasta was chewy. The oyster was under the pasta, taking all the flavor away from the seafood meat. Our... More

We've been to the Cape many times and always drove by this place. This time we decided to try it. Will definitely return. Enjoyed lunch on the patio overlooking the river for lunch. The food was excellent, our server was super nice! It was so good that we went back the next day for dinner. The place is clean, affordable... More

Visited the Cape with first-time ever friends......had to go to a restaurant that would be sure to give a good impression.... Knew if we went here, it would be great food, quiet table (some places are just TOO loud for conversation!!), fast service and very decent prices, the Lobster Boat would be all of that! Thanks again, we'll always come... More

When my Husband and I arrived there was only a handful of tables in there and we were denied outdoor seating which was a bummer but not the downfall. We shared a Chowder and Mussels.. Chowder was VERY salty but Mussels were good. My Husband ordered the fried scallops, he ate ONE.. disgusting.. I ordered the Clam Strips, they were... More

I drove past this restaurant several times because I usually don't go into places that just look so touristy!!! My wife and I decided to eat there last week and the food is really terrific, even for meat eaters. Prime rib roast ala Durgin Park if you know what I mean. I had some of the best Linguine with white... More

We ate heer a few times in the past and would say that its just average. Service has been spotty to say the least. There are much better choices in the area. Probably would recommend you try it at least once.
