This place survives because of historical lore. Have been coming here since the 60's. Always a fun spot for a drink, hor d'oeuvres, music and ocean view. Food is so-so. Great service, lively crowd. Get the freshly shucked oysters.

I'm from Chicago, and have visited The Wellfleet Beachcomber is the past and loved it. I believe that greed has taken over this establishment. If you are looking for a quick bit and in and out quickly this is the place for you. We had a drink and got up and order our own raw bar items and retrieved them... More

Excellent food, wonderful drinks! A don't miss if you are on the Outer Cape. We had a minimal wait for a party of 13. Service was good, but not great.

The Wellfleet Beachcomber was an excellent bar/restaurant right on the beach at Cahoon Hollow. The food was very good and the mudslides (alcoholic drink) was delicious! The prices were a little high but that is to be expected at a bar/restaurant on the beach.

Really looked forward to this experience but found it more like a tired dirty basic food,I had frozen squid I think not really what you expect on a beach in the cod. We were sat by outdoor bins which stunk and toilets so not good and waitress was forgetfull. Cocktail was lovely. The music may be good but we were... More

Biggest downfall in the summer you can't just park here to eat as people will come for the beach and get their $20 reimbursed when they eat at the restaurant. Since we were told we "HAD" to eat here, we paid $20 for the beach down the street and took the bus here. Normally I wouldn't care if I had... More

Let me start by saying that I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food given the location and Bar atmosphere. but the food was overpriced. Had some Oysters and a Lobster roll... Lobster roll was on a SMALL hotdog bun but did have Lobster overflowing it... For $22 I expected something more substantial in the way of presentation,... More

Cool place. My suggestion is the tuna burger. It's not on the menu, but ask for it. Sushi grade tuna roughly ground and made into a patty. Get it medium rare. It should be served with Wasabi mayo, but it comes with chipotle mayo. Doesn't quite suit the fish, but tasty none the less! Is the menu cheap? No. But... More
