Great family restaurant but you need to choose your time to eat carefully otherwise it's full (same for the parking) .... good, solid, no-nonsense Cape Cod food in a homely 'spit and sawdust' environment ... no way the kids can trash this place ! Food, drinks and service are what you'd expect, but full marks to the restaurant team for... More

The beachcomber is the reason for our trips to Wellfleet. The beach, live music, raw bar and atmosphere are fantastic. There is a twenty dollar parking fee you can apply to your meal. Always packed and parking is limited.

This was my second visit and the first time my family and I thought it was great. However, this time, we did not feel the same. The location is great, below the dune is the magnificent Atlantic Ocean. We waited at least 40 minutes for a seat indoors. The restaurant was extremely busy. Our waitress was ver nice. I ordered...

No other beach bar hot spot like this on the lower, outer Cape. Massive crowds, tons of under the 30's and under, with a sprinkling of old guys like me who just never grew up. Get here early in July & August. Parking is at a premium. Good entertainment.

The best place to have a drink and look out over the ocean. I look forward to visiting The Beachcomber every year. The drinks are good but the view is the best. Usually have raw oysters here. They are fresh! It gets busy, so you have to time it just right.

One of my favorite places to visit. Great vibe, staff, food, and drinks. Beautiful views while eating fried clams with beers.

We had a great time at the Beachcomber! We loved it was close to the beach so we could easily get lunch - which you earned once you climbed back up the huge dune!!

The place just has awesome atmosphere. From the time you arrive and the restaurant is right on the beach in between two dunes to watching the seals near the shore. There just nothing to complain about. The staff is friendly and helpful picking out your food., and the food is quick and tasty. Definitely worth a visit.

The Beachcomber has been around for years (and it shows!). It's the quintessential Cape Cod beach bar and restaurant. The food is good and the atmosphere is laid back. Wear flips flops or sandals....heals and sneakers just don't work well here with all the sand! The bar has a great drink menu. It can be loud, but that's why you... More
