We have been going to Cooke's for many years. We have watched to prices go up and the quality of the food remain the same. You do get a lot on your plate,but ... The service is great and the wait is not a problem even in the summer. But we probably won't go back next season.

Cooke's Seafood is always on our list for the Go to place when we can't make up our mind. They are the "Cape Cod" Subway. Always consistent, very good chowder, fries, lobster rolls, etc., friendly staff. Kinda $$. Seating in/out.

Stopped for lunch after a busy morning of shopping with my wife and daughter. I had a nice flame broiled cheeseburger, stacked with lettuce and tomato and we split a side of fries. My wife had the monster lobster roll, and my daughter the fried shrimp roll. We each had a small soda. All the food was prepared well and... More

Out for a ride, came across Cookes and gave it a try, quick bit, late lunch. I got the fish sandwich which was very good and my wife got the clam strip roll, bigger and better than she expected. We shared some onion rings which were top notch. Glad we stopped in. Noticed on our ride that they have at... More

Quintessential New England seafood place serving the standard items (e.g., clam roll) and a surprisingly good hamburger. You order at the counter, get your beverage and pick a table. In no time at all, your food is delivered and it's piping hot. The decor is basic and the staff is welcoming. Our food was very good. They welcome tour buses... More

I always choose Cookes over other area restaurants. The food is great and the price is comparable for the area.

We stopped here before attending a play in Orleans. We were not familiar with the many restaurants along Route 6 or 28 so we headed for someplace we knew the menu would be standard and not outrageous in price. The place was teeming with families and vey noisy so don't expect to have any meaningful conversations while there. We had... More

Great fried seafood with a very good non seafood menu. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the price was decent.

Good fried shrimp and clams, my daughter was not a huge fan of the fried calamari. Owner and staff are friendly and place runs smoothly, but a basic fried dinner for four was $70, and that seems a bit steep for what it is.
