Cooke's features the standard Cape fried seafood, but I like the clean and bright interior if you've had enough of sitting at picnic tables.

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

Ordered the whole clams. What I got was good . . . excellent, but I had to finish all my fries to feel full. For $25 I expected all I could eat. High quality but very high price???

A friend and I went to Cookes for lunch. We ordered the fish sandwiches. Someone at the fryer knows their business. The fish was done perfectly. It is served on a oval roll so it does not hang over the ends and become difficult to eat. We saw some very nice appearing meals being brought to tables. We plan to... More

Divine fried clams and delish onion rings. A family owned business with darling kids helping. Just needs better beverage service instead of plastic bottles.

I wish that there was a rating between Average and Very Good. If so, i would put Cook's in it. It is much better than a typical "fast food" place, but it is not a real destination. Sort of a good place to go for decent food when you are in a hurry. Hamburgers are quite good and prices are... More

Came here for a quick dinner the night of a Cape League baseball game. My clam strips were pretty good but overall my party was pretty "meh" about the place. The Greek salad was not memorable in any way, and the clam chowder was also forgettable. We got some from PJs the next day, and PJs just destroyed Cooke's, and... More

I was expecting a little something more but instead didn't realize this was just like a fast food place. The person who took our order looked like the mother of the two young girls working there. She was so unpleasant and didn't even smile. My gosh it look like it killed her to say "may I help you". The food... More
