We stumbled into this wonderful, cute place while seeking chowder and beer on a chilly day. We started with a bowl of fish chowder and were pleasantly surprised by the delicious taste. It was almost like a clam bisque. Creamy and well flavored with sherry and fresh thyme. A definite must try. Next we sampled the fish and chips with... More

I came here off season and had a late dinner. I had no problem getting a table at 8:30 so take this into consideration for service and atmosphere. Service was outstanding. My waiter was there when I needed him, and stayed away when he wasn't, so I could enjoy my meal. Food was served hot and promptly. The place was... More

Great service, good food and prompt! Had the Dover sole which was great! Good starter salad too! I liked the atmosphere as well. I'm a seahorse lover and there were lots of seahorse decorations/ artworks around. Will be back!

Brewster fish house is still good but use to be much better with the original chef. They are now on their third chef in the last four years. The original chef opened her own restaurant called Fin in Dennis. It is expensive but outstanding!

This is an absolute MUST! We have eaten in many places but this was the best fish supper we have ever had. The lobster main was just terrific - high quality food, amazing flavours.

Loved our lunch at the Brewster Fish House. Great service and great food. The crab cake that we shared was outstanding. The crab ravioli special of the day with scallops and the shrimp linguine were very good. For dessert we had the crème brûlée and the sorbet. The sorbet was nice, but the crème brûlée was one of the best... More

Had to go twice so could have the brilliant fish chowder and the lobster bisque. Nice fresh short menu and meats on it too if you dont fancy fish. Worth a drive to it. Had a solo meal at the bar with other solos and made friends with locals. Good wine by the glass too.

It was better this year than last - but still not up to where it used to be. The server told me that they brought back a previous chef - so maybe that will do the trick. Don't get me wrong - it is still good - just not the awe inspiring experience that it used to be.

When we first started going to the Brewster Fish House, it was my favorite. They were always creative with thieir dishes and excellent mix of favors. I visited last year and was very disappointed. With the new addition, we were seated next to the ladies room. Food was ok but not the same as it was before. We recently visited... More

Wife and I have driven by the Brewster Fish House for 40 years - back in the day when it was a fish market rather than a restaurant - but until now we had never stopped in. No good reason - just didn't. Until today, that is. It was our last day on the Cape and we were doing odds... More
