Opening day 2018. My wife thinks they have the best fish and chips. I think they have the best clams. It remains true again this year. Always enjoy it, never disappointed.

Always take an annual visit to Baxter’s on Hyannis Harbor. Come by land or SEA. All ages welcome. Gets crowded. Closed in the winter months.

I enjoyed the food here, as much as any kind of fried seafood can be enjoyed! It's good quality, but I love sitting at the end of their dock and watching all the boats go by in the middle of the summer.

We went to lunch expecting some great seafood. The chowder and bisque soups were delicious but our salads were less than impressive especially since the salad dressings are served in squeeze packets. For the price of meals, I would expect salad dressings made from scratch....More
