If you want perfect clam bellies, delicious lobster rolls and delectable sides, head to this summer staple of Cape dining. A trip to Orleans requires a trip to Cooke's with its minimalist furnishings and counter ordering system. No seafood is better, fresher or more delicious especially when hot from the fryer. My pal loves to get a hot dog and... More

Cooke's Seafood is always fresh, yummy, and plentiful. We are usually disappointed when we go somewhere else. Always busy, but the wait isn't too long. We go there every time we're on the Cape.

I got clam chowder and it was really, really good! We also got fried shrimp, French fries and onion rings. All was excellent!

Like many of the reviewers we were surprised that it was a order at the counter place. They had a nice selection of many of the foods you can find on The Cape. Fried clams, oysters, fish and lobster. We each ordered a different item and a side salad each. The meal does come to the table in containers ready... More

Seafood? Of course, but we don't get that here. They simply serve the best hamburgers on Cape Cod. You can enjoy a Bass ale with your burger and need little else.

Surprise find. Most excellent food. Clam chowder was on par with the very best. Lobstar roll was delectable and burgers were terrific. We would gladly return and wished we had found it earlier in our trip!

I have been going to this Cooke's location for many years and have never been disappointed. At first glance, this looks like it might be a fast food kind of place with pre-fab fare. It is not. Yes, you do order at the counter, take a number, and the food is then brought to your table by one of the... More
