Fodor's Review

This East Coast–style waterfront seafood joint may not be textbook Cape Cod, but that's okay—dine here, and you'll get the best of both coasts: true New England–style clam chowder and lump crab cakes but also local rock cod with Italian lentils, bacon, and Brussels sprouts. Indoor seats are in several long dining rooms; outdoor seats are warmed by gas fire pits and heaters on chilly days; and every seat in the house looks out to the water.
