Casual comfort - good eats!

A lovely surprise with great service and excellent food. We enjoyed the fried oysters served with sweet potato fries and their own homemade cole slaw. The oysters were sweet, juicy and had the lightest crispy coating.

The food was fairly average but not bad. But we asked our waitress before we ordered that we would like separate checks and she said no problem but then presented one check and really balked at making individual checks. We were a party of three couples. They were not busy so we were dismayed at her reaction.

Everytime I visit the cape I make it a point to go here for dinner. Their homecooked meals are wonderful. I had coq au vin chicken smouthered with mushrooms over a bed of warm mashed potatoes, with butternut bisque to start the meal off. What a treat.

Riding on the CCRT. Not sure what this place is like during tourist season. But off season, wonderfully local. About 10 people in bar, bartender knew them all by name. Had the fish and chips. Warmed me up for next part of the ride.

Stopped in for a cup of chowder at the recommendation of a local merchant. Chowder was good with a pronounced lemon flavor; Fresh clams and a nice creamy base without any starchiness. Th grilled cheese with tomato sandwich was yummy. Husband had tuna on toasted rye bread which was just OK. Staff was super friendly and attentive. This is a... More

Recommended by our host at The Old Manse Inn. This is one of the best restaurants on the Cape. Food preparation and combination was unique and extremely enjoyable. Make a reservation ahead of time if traveling in season. It books fast.

Party of 6 (we were able to make a reservation) for dinner. We ordered drinks, our only complaint was the wine glasses, and martini glasses (5 oz) were filled to the top, but extremely small. We had oysters, clams, triple play, beef a roni soup and chowder were all great apps. Dinners we had seafood alfredo, roasted chicken, Tavern special,... More

The atmosphere at the Brewster Inn and Chowder House was friendly and welcoming. It was a busy evening but staff promptly showed us to the bar while we waited for a table. Our meals were simple yet satisfying which was exactly what we were after following a long day of travel. My wife's vegetarian meal was particularly tasty so I... More

Have been going to the Brewster Inn & Chowder House for years and it is one of the few Cape Cod restaurants that has not gone crazy with their pricing. The food is very good with a substantial variety. The service is good as well. The Inn's history is quite interesting and the decor isn't fancy but rather sticks to... More
