Great place for lunch

I have been here numerous times for lunch after golf, and it is always great. Service at the bar is friendly and the food excellent. The Rubin is strongly recommended, but they always have great daily specials.

To my family this is the best chowder on the Cape and possibly even the world! One catch: be sure to call ahead to arrange for your carry-out chowder. They like to know you are coming, presumably so that they have enough chowder for the dining-in crowd. The chowder is definitely worth a courtesy call!!

This restaurant takes you back in time as it is on the main road in Brewster in a building that was once an Inn. The interior, therefore, is a bit old fashioned, kind of like a Victorian house with a number of rooms and hallway. Service is friendly. Food is somewhat better than okay with reasonable prices. Try the Mango... More

Staff was always very nice, and the burger and fries are delicious!! The staff have good recommendations for the area as well. Also the salads are nice, especially with sauteed scallops added :) And apparently the pie is out of this world (as per my coworker).

Food was great, staff was engaging and kids loved it. Not to mention this is NOT a seafood tourist shack. Historic house with warmth of small town hospitality.

The Chowder House always has delicious food I just wish they would change up the one vegetarian option they have once in a while, although it is really tasty only being able to eat one thing on the menu has definitely made our group decide to go elsewhere a few times. My boyfriend and a few other friends say the... More

Our flight was cancelled so we were very late getting to our B&B and we needed something close to get a bite. The Chowder House was an excellent place for a meal. The freshest salad I have ever eaten and the french onion soup was delicious. My husband had New England Clam Chowder and Fried clams and raved over his... More

We ate at the Brewster Inn and Chowder House last year and went back this year. On Cape Cod restaurants change from season to season so we like to try them out before bringing guests. We went with four of us and three of us chose meals from the specials list. The regular menu is somewhat unexciting and is typical... More

We stopped here for lunch and were not at all disappointed with the food. The clam chowder was delicious, the best I've ever had, and the sandwiches/fries/cole slaw were all delicious and large portions. Our only complaint is that they serve their soft drinks (i.e., coke/diet coke) in very small glasses and they don't have free refills. The server did... More

Friendly townie-type place that delivers good, yet uninspired food. Ample parking. Not inexpensive. Has kids menu.
