Small and friendly

We enjoyed local fare of clam chowder and seafood with local ale. The meal was good if not outstanding in an area with good eateries. We enjoyed what we had at a reasonable price.

we've driven by thousands of time, but never ate there. we stopped in after a movie in dennis. the chowder, which gets rave reviews, was average. one special, seafood wrapped in puff pastry with cheese sauce was a bit overcooked and dry, though two large slices. one scallop dinner tasted "off" and our friendly waitress didn't charge for it. a...

Lunch or dinner, you will find the Brewster Inn and Chowder House very satisfying. All food is fresh and appetizing. Their chowder is sublime. If you want a quiet spot to enjoy fresh fish, go on the early side. Service staff are accommodating. Chef knows what he's doing!! Great food at affordable prices.

The Inn seems quite run down. Lots of locals there the day we lunched there. The food was really mediocre though the prices were good. Not much atmosphere. Could be incredibly charming but just didn't make it.

We ate here for the 3 nights that we were in Brewster. The chowder, sourdough rolls and salad made for a wonderful dinner. The last night, we ordered a fish dish with baked potato and salad. Excellent dinners.

Our meal was excellent. We got the puttanesca special and it was made to perfection. The service was excellent too. Both waitresses (both blondes) working in the dining room made sure our table was acceptable and away from the more cooler window. They helped us move which was nice of them. We plan to return to this restaurant in the... More

A great find for Foodees! If you are a chowder or bisque fan, they have a unique and tasty take on these two New England favorites. Small venue, can be loud on the weekends when they are busy. One of our favorites on the cape.

Come for the Chowda. It was buttery and filled with big pieces of clams. Hit fresh rolls. The rest of the menu was a bit dated and over priced. Service was attentive but the peach cobbler tasted like canned peaches and no crumble. A miss.

We ate there once on our trip. Got there around 6:15 PM, not crowded. The wait staff were attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The meals were average as the lobster roll had too much mayonnaise. The other fish meals were fine, nothing special though. Overall, an average place.
