Great food not so great portions

As usual the food at this establishment was outstanding. The portions, however are too small and the wine pour for the price is not good. Because of this,I do not feel fair value is offered for the price. Like so many other places at Cape Cod, they are busy so they can get the price. Sooner or... read more

The descriptions on the menu are great, too bad the food doesn't live up to the description. I agree with others, small portions and overpriced.

Decided to visit BFH again after a long hiatus. After a short wait we were shown to a great table for four. Service was excellent, but the menu had few options that appealed. My daughter in law and I ordered the special salad (already forgot what it was) and the tuna entree. We were very happy with our meals. My... More

“Ec-lec-tic” is my one word for summing up the Brewster Fish House. It is necessary to quickly point out that the Brewster Fish House does not accept reservations, and tables are available on a first-come, first-served basis. And, it is relatively small, with maybe seating for 50 +/- customers, so ending in a waiting line during the high season has... More

Small place but very well run. Great food and service. Price is on the higher end of dining. It gets very busy and reservations are recommended all year. Locals like this as well as tourists.

Read good reviews about this restaurant and wanted to try it out. It was crowded, and we had to wait outside for only about 15 minutes before our table was ready. Our waitress was not the best, but the food was good. Overpriced in my opinion, given that it wasn't spectacular.

This restaurant has been there forever. I think it is considered a fine restaurant - and the food is good, don't get me wrong. However, it is WAY too expensive. The portions are not large enough to justify the price. Also, the wait staff is snobby. You get "looked over" when you walk in and you're treated like a tourist... More

We followed the recommendations of Lonely Planet and Tripadvisor to this really great fish restaurant in Brewster. A reservation was not possible but we had big luck: Our estimated waiting time of 30 minutes (sitting at bar) was shortend to 5 minutes only. Service was very kind and fast. The fish was delicious!

I tried to take my wife out for but the Brewster Fish House was a BIG MISTAKE. I wanted scallops for dinner but the only thing I could get was three scallops, a midget lobster and pig belly. For sides i got a couple grill onions and mushrooms with three sticks of something that wasn't editable. I ask they leave... More
