This is quintessential fast food New England. Real nice fried clams etc, chowder, etc served on a fast food format. Very clean, zero atmosphere, great place for a big family to eat New England style. Quick and out.

This restaurant was close to our motel, so we walked over for dinner. The prices seemed a little high, but the fried clams were delicious. The inside of the restaurant feels like a generic fast food joint, and the outside tables overlook the parking lot and Rt. 28. For my fried seafood, I go down the road to Cobie's in... More

Stopped in for casual lunch. The manager was super friendly and nice. Very professional and made you feel like you have been coming to the place for years. The rest of the staff was friendly and hustling around the place bringing out orders. The fried clams were excellent as well as the fried scallops. The best thing about this place... More

We haven't eaten here in a long time. Looking for real casual and simple food we tried it again. It was very good. Grilled shrimp on Greek salad and fish 'n chips for my husband. While I usually don't care for fried food Cooke's does it well. Properly cooked and not greasy. They now serve alcohol drinks too. Not cheap... More

A lot of place say: Best Fried Clams on Cape Cod but this is the real lest of deals. The broiled fish is good, the lobster roll is superb, the beer is ice cold and has varieties but the Fried Clams can not be denied.

We can't wait for Cooke's to reopen every spring. Our Sunday routine includes a trip to Cooke's for lunch, where we meet our friends who also make Cooke's a part of their Sunday. Though most people go to Cooke's for their fabulous fried fish and their famous onion rings, we go for a healthier option: their amazing Greek salad! We... More

I was there a week and a half ago on the day that they opened for the season. I couldn't wait one more day. The fried oysters are sweet, tender and lightly coated. They are those big rubbery honker oysters that some places have. These are the kind that keeps me coming back !!! I can't get there often enough... More

Food is typical of a fast food restaurant. Orderly service and I love the fried fish. typical chain restaurant with tasty meals when in a hurry. [Not in the summer]The place is jumping as it is a reasonable place to eat and service is good.

The food is fresh, cookedd to perfection BUT almost every offering is fried. I know there is at least 1 salmon dish available it may be the only nonfried item. You order at the counter and the server will bring you your dinner on a tray. The place is clean and lights are bright. Highly recoment. Prices range from AROUND... More
