We had hoped our experience would be as good as the restaurant's local reputation. El wrongo. First, the menu is limited and difficult to understand. Secondly, the restaurant is very small. We sat what felt like 2 inches away from the Hostess, who kept staring at us, it seemed. It was super awkward and in retrospect we should have left.... More

Loved this restaurant last year but on returning we were left disappointed this time. The food was OK but the Fish House lacked atmosphere. The tables were laid with brown mats, the lighting was poor and we felt rushed. It was not the dining experience we enjoyed last year. Not sure what's happened. The food, well it was OK, my... More

When visiting a friend in Brewster this past spring, she told me we were going to Brewster Fish House. At first, I wasn't excited. I thought we were going to a clam shack because of the name. Boy was I wrong!! It was a charming small bistro that served wonderful French inspire cuisine. Our meal was exceptional, the service attentive... More

This place was recommended in our guide book - we don't often follow their recommendations but we were in the area and it was lunch time. We first drove past it but so glad we turned around! It was the best meal we had all holiday. I had the scallops with squash ravioli and lobster sauce which would be my... More

I asked for the open face steak sandwich, cooked medium. It came out lukewarm, at best, as if it had already been prepared and was kept under heat lamps. The waitress said she could have it heated up more. It then came back out slightly warmer, and certainly not at all hot. She brought it back to the kitchen again... More

We went in for an early dinner...so glad we did, as it got crazy busy shortly after we arrived! The service was attentive; the food was excellent. Between us, we had the lobster bisque, crab cake with pancetta leek tart & Atlantic salmon. All were delicious! As was the triple chocolate mousse (frozen) dessert...

Amazingly fresh, locally sourced seafood prepared in a simple yet tasteful way. Great atmosphere with top notch service and the owner came over to see if everything was ok. A must try when in Brewster

We stopped mid-afternoon for a late lunch after reading good reviews. Very good food, good choice of wines and beers. Food was fresh, nice "twists" to the standards and attractively presented. Friendly staff.

Thank PrinzErik
