Nice spot off Main St.

Nice quiet spot off Main St. in the center of town. Gracious servers and hostess. Food was good but not memorable.

Well as tropical as it can imagine on the Cape, another annual stop for us, as mentioned in other reviews, right off of main street and nestled in a little out-cove off the beaten path, look for the blue shark sign, I believe they were the first to use a shark on their logo - now they are everywhere because...

We stopped here for a late lunch with two kids. Cool and casual hidden outdoor dining area off of Main Street. Nice outdoor bar area and patio tables. We had the Cajun chicken sandwich and the grilled scallop roll special, both were delicious. Scallop roll was tossed in a light vinaigrette, no mayo which was nice. Service was fabulous, fast...

My wife and I split salmon sandwich and a vegetarian panini. Both were excellent. The service was good. The lunch was on the expensive side at $51.34 with only soft drinks for beverages.

Went with kids, was able to sit us quickly on the side so it worked out. Service was good, refilled my kids lemonade no charge. Had scallops, crab cake sandwich, tuna tartar and kids hot dogs and pasta.tuna tartar was the best, crab cake sandwich not so much. Would recommend for food, atmosphere and great break from shopping strip.

Shopped all morning one day and stopped in at The Blue Coral. Loved the outdoor eating especially on a beautiful day. Burgers and salads ordered at our table and was delicious. I highly recommend The Blue Coral!

We went to the restaurant on Saturday after having a disappointing meal at another upscale restaurant in Brewster... Megan our server took good care of us answered all our questions and made some excellent suggestions. My wife and I split a pesto mussel appetizer, SO GOOD, (I wanted to lick the plate clean). Then we both had the flank steak... More

We eat here every summer and have recommended it often. Just recommended it to friends, who wanted desperately to try it, but THEIR friends dragged them off to a bar and grill. Fine if you want bar and grill food, but the Blue Coral is for foodies. Only complaint: they've dumbed down the menu a bit. There was never a... More

A little on the pricey side ... The steak and burger was ok, lobster ravioli and salmon were good. Didn't have to wait as long as the other restaurants.
