When I first moved here and joined the NRC, we came here as a group venture. Service was dismal, the salad bar looked so sad with wilted lettuce and not much else to call it a salad bar. Some people got tired of waiting to order dinner, that they walk to a nearby eatery and ate there. There's two nice... More

From the first moment with Chef-Owner Al and Chef Tim, you are transported to the delicious sensation of eating out on the docks in Provincetown or Boston Fisherman's Wharf! Those days are probably gone, but if you dream of returning to Cape Cod where abundant fresh fish flowed over you bowl and the chefs were your friends bringing extras to... More

From the moment we walked in we were treated like royalty. The owner Al was excited to see us and his server on duty was extremely attentive and she was very polite. Al is very proud of his years of experience in the food industry. He shared tastings with us of his menu favourites and provided pictures on his iPad... More

The fried food is very crisp and tasty most of the menu is baked, grilled, poached or Broiled. We had an awesome SHRIMP MARGARITA, 6 LARGE SHRIMP SWIMMING IN A 10 OZ FROZEN CONCOCTION. If your looking for a old fla style joynt this is it we will return every chance possible

We took the family out for my son's 17th birthday, instead of getting a sitter for our 4yo daughter, we brought her along. We had a party of 7. We were seated right away and we were quickly greeted by a tub full of toys for our 4 year old and drink orders were quickly taken and brought out. While... More

Everything here was fried and heavy and unappealing. I ordered a martini, and the BARTENDER asked me how to make it! Interesting funky, shabby chic decor, but man they don't know what they're doing.

Just celebrated my birthday at the Moorings. What a great dinner. The food was so fresh. I rarely eat out because I have a very delicate stomach, but I can tell you from the fish to clam (caught that day) , the fried bread stick, to the cordial, it was the best meal I had in a long time. Let... More

A few lines to introduce myself. My name is Al Whelan, I am from Boston and worked at a famous "waterfront dive" known as Kelly's Landing. A seafood business in a Catholic community with lines down the street, literally. I worked there for five summers and enjoyed every minute of it. My first date with the counter girl (she couldn't resist a man in a paper hat), my first kiss, etc. One rule was demanded, cooking with clean oil! In those days it was lard! Today we use canola oil both on the grill side and on the fry side... Most of our dinners are on the grill side. Fish shrimp, scallops, steaks, ribs, chicken and pork round off our menu. Our Irish Connoli is like a little piece of heaven and our homemade bread pudding is to die for. Both topped off with sweet whipped cream. We've added a 6000 square foot patio surrounded by trees. A truly private and romantic spot. Also some added features such as, a basketball cage, beer pong table and corn hole court.
