Biggest Lobster Roll You've Ever Seen (and delicious!)

The entire area of Cape Cod is just bustling with activity right now! Last night we decided to try "The Wooden Shoe" because number 1 it was right around the corner from where we were staying and number 2 after reading reviews on it my husband and I couldn't resist trying the lobster roll. I am... read more

My husband and I tried having dinner here last year we were shocked by the outside but decided to go in anyway and were more shocked by the inside and very small menu. We left because we thought it was old and dirty looking. I see from other reviews that many people think it's great and love the food they... More

The Shoe offers a small yet great Old Cape atmosphere. The beer is cold and the seafood is fresh! The waitstaff were fantastic on our visit. It was our best meal on the Cape factoring in food quality, laid back atmosphere and price. A cant miss on Lower County Road!

We were recommended this place by David,The Old Landing Motel owner. It wasn't anything special to look at but the service was friendly as were all the other drinkers & diners. There lobster rolls were the biggest and best value we had ever seen and the beer was good too.

Best Lobster Rolls and Chowder. We really enjoyed the food. Very pleasant server who was very good. If you are looking for a nice big Lobster Roll this is your place. It is Cash only but they have an ATM.

This place was amazing, small and far from fancy, my kind of place. Being from Gloucester Ma I know my seafood and I have to say these were some of the best steamahs I've eva had. Cooked perfect, perfect size, and some of the sweetest and most tender I've eva had. Also got the twin lobstahs, also done perfect.

The temperature hit me right away. No AC. Stifling. Loud? OMG. Small and cramped. I asked the waitress if this was really their menu. It had maybe 8 items. Got the sense they're satisfied catering to a small loyal number of locals. Told the waitress we were just going to finish our drinks and leave. They made us move to... More

The Wooden Shoe is a relatively small place on Lower County Road in Dennis Port and, frankly, it can be easy to miss if you are not paying attention. The place looks quite small from the road, but has a fair amount of seating inside. This is another place out of time, like a 1950s old style family restaurant. It... More
