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

Largely a clam shack. Nice assortment of fried seafood. Oysters were very good. Wife had the bay scallops. Breading is light and the scallops were very sweet. Happy with our meal. Recommended for this sort of fare.

If you're looking for a classic fried fish sandwich, definitely try Cooke's! We've been going here over the years and the sandwiches are always consistent - a nice big piece of fish, lightly fried and fresh (unlike some other places on the Cape). Great place to swing by if you need a good, quick meal - delicious!

Stopping at Cooke's is somewhat of a Cape Cod tradition for our family, and that tradition continues with overpriced average food, just as it was years ago. But we needed a relatively quick lunch and this was the most efficient place to eat. The food is really just average whether it be the fish and chips, the burger, the hot... More

If you like expensive Lobster rolls ($17) and soggy onion rings, then this is the place for you. The wait staff is very courteous but there should be more supervision over the quality of what comes out of the kitchen. Fast is not always good, even in fast seafood. This review may not be true of all Cooke's Seafood locations... More

We have gone here several years in a row but this year was very disappointing. Chowder I was unable to eat. Almost flavorless and pasty. Fish and chips was so so and this place is no bargain. Won't return.
