The menu is small and trying to be classy. The food is ok, but the prices are too high for what you get. It appears to be an average fish place, but they attempt to be fine dining on the inside. I say "fine dining" loosely as you can't use your cellphone, the clientele is ancient, the decor is RUSTIC... More

We have gone here off and on since it opened with mixed results. Early on it was excellent but went through a not-so-good period. There has been some chef turnover. Our most recent meal was disappointing and overpriced. With 2 entrees and 1 dessert we paid over $92 dollars and had no drinks or appetizer. My tuna was tasty but... More

The best prepared seafood on the Cape! A bit small inside, I don't really like feeling quite that crowded while dinning, but if you don't mind rubbing elbows with your fellow diners, you'll get one of the best dinners available on Cape Cod.

Food was excellent in this adventurous and classy restaurant. On a very snowy night, the place was busy with locals and visitors. We had salmon and scallops to start and sole as our entre. Dessert was a homemade Napoleon and strawberries. Staff were very attentive, friendly and chatty. We'll be back.

We had dinner at the Brewster Fish House last night. We hadn't been there in years as it is always crowded and they don't take reservations. It was a snowy Valentines Day and we thought that it was a good time to give it a try..We were anxious to try it after hearing many good reviews and were not disappointed.... More

We love this place for lunch or dinner. It's a cozy place with a friendly and efficient staff. The menu has good variety and the seafood is very fresh and consistently prepared to perfection! Fish and Chips are very good. Plan ahead since this place is very popular! I highly recommend this restaurant for great seafood.
