Sent there by locals!

Great dinners, locals love it and the staff is friendly. Cash only so stop at ATM. Little place yet perfect!

This seasonal throwback bar was once a Kennedy's hangout, the a favorite of an Olympic figure skater, and the venue of choice of the subject of the convicted drug dealer who was the subject of the movie "Blow." Today it's more low-key, catering to the local bar crowd as well as some families who ignore the shabby-chic surroundings to sample... More

Overall, it was hard to find AWESOME food in Cape Cod, a lot of the places are pretty average. Don't get me wrong my lobster was delicious, but I had to point out to my husband his lobster roll was served on moldy bread. We pointed it out later to our waiter, just to make sure others wouldn't be served... More

Went for the first time. I think we never noticed it before because it's kind of talk the way and almost like a neighborhood style setting. My dinner was great girlfriends lobster was done to perfection. Would give it five stars but for the acoustics, a little noisy. But I guess that's the deal when the place is that busy.... More

I usually stay in the Dennisport area when on vacation in Cape Cod and was recommended 'The Wooden Shoe' by a good friend. How right he was! I ordered the two lobsters plus side salad meal for around $27 - what a bargain. The restaurant is cosy, has a great atmosphere, and the staff are very friendly & helpful... would... More

Cash only restaurant. Portions are large but the dishes were a bit simple. Good spot if you are just looking for a bite to eat but not exactly a date/family night place.

The Wooden Shoe is a simple Cape Cod sea food pub that serves delicious fresh food. Just had tender, sweet steamers and $2 Pabst Blue Ribbon drafts. The Caesar salad was also delicious. This is a relaxed, fun place to eat fresh sea food.

We were in the mood for steamers, and this was the place. We each had a bucket, a pound and a half. Nothing left but the shells!!! The young women beside us had the lobster salad roll, it was huge. They said it was fabulous! The staff were very welcoming and friendly, it is a homey place. Try it!

My husband found this place in a search. He made us reservations before going. The place is small. The ambiance is casual. The food is simple. Seafood and corn on the cob and other dishes such as steak tips or chicken. They have Mac and cheese for kids. The food was good. Not excellent but was definitely tasty and a... More

A good sized lobster, cob of corn & potato salad, typical for the area. Good service, clean bathrooms & price was good. I would recommend the Wooden Shoe for a casual fun night.
