Nothing better then having clam chowdah and onion rings on the beach. Something I look forward to every time we visit Nauset Beach. We are usually there in the spring time and back in Sept. again. My vacation isn't complete without having a few trips to Liams. Of course the onion rings are out of this world. They are usually... More

After a decades-long, grueling search for the finest onion rings in the world--Liam's onion rings are still without compare! Not cheap, and painfully long-lines in peak summer season, but hugely worth the wait. Other seafood (e.g., clam strips) are also extremely good.

Any time my wife and I are even close to Nauset Beach we have to go to Liam's. The food is always incredibly fresh and great tasting. Yesterday we went for onion rings and clam "chowdah". The rings are just superb. The clam chowder was good but slightly bland. That was a first. I highly recommend this place. Realize you... More

We had huge lobster rolls a couple days ago (seemed to be the promised half -pound each) that were delicious with fresh and sweet lobster. We would have rated them five stars if there had been some lemon and a little less mayo (probably just personal preference). Only open mid-day on Saturdays through Mondays this time of year.

CapeCoddah48, Owner at Liam's, responded to this review

Thanks for your great review!! We always have fresh lemons and limes behind the counter, but for sanitary reasons leave them on ice for customers who want that option. We strive to not soak our seafood rolls in mayo, and will prepare them with no mayo on request. Our last day of 2016 is October 10, then open for our... More

Renting a property near by for the week, we decided to try Liams for lunch after reading the reviews and craving fresh seafood. We pull in and immediately see a parking attendant. We tell her we are not going to the beach (weren't dressed for it any ways) that we just wanted to grab lunch at Liams. We were told... More

CapeCoddah48, Owner at Liam's, responded to this review

Thanks for this review. Liam's is located on Nauset Beach with breathtaking ocean views. The parking lot that includes Liam's is operated by the town of Orleans and they charge a $20 fee from 7 AM to 4:30 PM daily through September 16, 2016 We at Liam's have no control over that fee structure. We hope you can return and... More

We spend a week or two in Orleans every summer and head to Nauset Beach almost every day. The rest of the year we just look forward to Liam's onion rings. They are simply the best. I assume the rest of the food is good too.

Stopped here after a day at Nauset beach. Terrible food and costly. Onion rings were onion strings and got cold immediately. HIgh cost for frozen food reheated.

CapeCoddah48, Owner at Liam's, responded to this review

Liam's serves only fresh food, cooked to order each and EVERY meal. It is NEVER reheated. Our pricing is in line with all local restaurants as I as the owner, monitor our competition. It is impossible that food "got cold immediately' by laws of nature. We always respond to customers that have an issue with our service, if they come... More

To avoid during high season, this beach restaurant offers small meal portions at salted prices , but it is the only inside Nauset beach park at Orleans on the west shore of the Cape

There are so many errors in this brief review, but we will try to respond appropriately. We do not salt or garnish with sauce our food in any way, allowed our customers to add what they please at their pleasure. Liam's is an ocean view restaurant on the Atlantic Ocean as far EAST as you can get on Cape Cod.... More

We find this place most enjoyable for food while at the Nauset Beach. The service is always efficient and the food of good quality. They are know for their onion rings. However, we really enjoyed their salmon sandwich for lunch. It wasn't a salmon burger but a real piece of salmon. It was excellent. Of course their onion rings were... More
