We visit here for lunch and dinner often. Always very consistent, a little pricey but what seafood restaurant on Cape Cod isnt? You get your money's worth. Ask for Eric or Jeremy, both great servers!

On Cape Cod it's Hard to find a delicious seafood restaurant that is open all year round but I did, it was the Lobster Boat. The portion sizes and food were delicious. The staff was very pleasant and very knowledgable of their menu. Their prices and ambience were grea.

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.

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
