Met a friends there for before-theatre dinner. Food was good. Service, not so much. Friendly, but slow. And it took until the end of the meal to get our drink order. Suggest you not be in a rush when you go ther!

During our time in Brewster, we ate dinner there twice. The only place for lobster tails. Clam chowder was excellent. Service was very good, especially Jody!!

We stopped in after debating on driving out to Hyannis. There were a lot of people on the front porch so it seemed promising. The waitress seemed overwhelmed, the busgirl looked miserable the entire time. My niece ordered Shrimp Scampi - it was pretty gross,...More

Don't be afraid of going to this restaurant because the parking lot isn't crowded. The people are all friendly and helpful. The food is very good especially the twin lobster dinner. The prices will fit all budgets. No reservations needed and the prices are reasonable.

We were intrigued by the twin lobsters for $20. Hubby and son ordered them. Son's lobsters were over-boiled so the shells were tough for him to crack. I had the salmon. Meh. Not sure I'd go back. Waitstaff was very attentive.

There were only 3 cars when we arrived. We were greeted nicely and sat quickly. Our waitress was very nice and pleasant. The food was overpriced. Since it was over priced, my wife and I ordered steak tips. They weren't tips...they were, I don't know....More

Skipped on Arnolds in Eastham which had an hour long line, remembered getting decent lobster at the Lobster Pound so we went. The sign out front said twin lobster $19:95 and jerk chicken, the chicken being something my wife would like. Went in to a...More

I've eaten here several times over the years while in Orleans and it is always good. Friendly service, lobsters, and decent prices. Granted, you are going to shell out some big $$$ if you want to 6 pound lobster, but we had the twin lobsters...More
