Seafood shack, ice cream, T-shirts too!

Kate's delivers just what you would expect: fish and seafood sandwiches and dinners, and plenty of options for non-fish lovers, too (hot dogs, BLTs, chicken). Kate's offers more than 25 ice cream flavors, as well. Take out or sit at a table under one of the umbrellas. You can even buy a Kate's... read more

Wow! What a find for those who love seafood and ice cream! Service is friendly, quick and most of all, the quality of fried seafood is the best you can get from a shack. It's fresh, light without tasting greasy and heavy. The whole belly clams is one of the best I've had anywhere in the Cape. The portions are... More

Kate's Seafood has a nice variety of fried seafood that is exquisitely fresh and never has the heavy greasy taste that fried seafood can have. The clams are sweet and succulent, the fish sandwich was perfect! Coupled with fries and a shake, you have an iconic Cape Cod lunch or dinner. Pass on the shake and indulge in the choice... More

A joke. Order in the front, collect round the side - your number is called and you collect. Trouble is when your number isn't called you stand there waiting like a lemon. When challenged, the woman insisted that our number was called - it wasn't. She was too busy yabbering on the phone to take much notice. My meal had... More

Get the Cape Cod Rueben which is a Rueben made of fish and the rest. Anything is good but you can't fail with that. Ice Cream is great and so are the shakes. The specials are a nice combination which I really don't or should not eat because of my weight but give in because it is too goo. At... More

We stopped in here for a fast lunch during our summer trip to Cape Cod. It is a nice stop but nothing special. They have nice picnic tables outside under the trees if you want to relax in the shade, but the view is of the parking lot so overall nothing special. Overall I would recommend you find some other...

Decent selection of food... hot chicks behind the counter... but they have a big problem that they need to do something about. I've seen some cute animals there... chipmunks, bunnies, birds... but they have a rat problem and I saw a young rat too. I noticed at least 3 rat traps around the perimeter so I had an idea that...

Our family went there with an appetite for fried fish. The servings were small and overpriced. I ordered a dinner that came with coleslaw which was spoiled. My husband ordered a Reuben made with fried cod. It was topped with the same spoiled coleslaw. We returned both into their credit they refunded my husband sandwich. The french fries were dry...

Been going to Kate's every summer. Never really had anything other than ice cream and fried clams / oysters, etc. Love it all. Will continue to go there for the scoops and sinful shakes for sure. Lobster rolls are still good - but getting pretty pricey for what they are. There's better out there. Walked up from Paines Creek beach... More
