This is a fun little place to visit next to one of the most beautiful beaches in this country! Food and drinks are a bit pricey, but you are paying for the scenic location. I recommend coming here at lunchtime if you are up at this end of the Cape. This is also a good stop off for a break... read more

Very lucky to get to the Beachcomber early on a gorgeous July day this past summer. Even luckier to find a couple of seats at the corner of the bar. Enjoyed the company of our server Dean. having tended bar in the past, it was very impressive to watch him work. He had at least 25 seats and another row... More

Okay - now when you go to Cape Cod, there are certain things you must do. The Beach Comber is a must, No. 1, be there or be square, destination. go to the beach for a while. Pop up the hill for cocktails and lunch. Back to the beach for a little sun. Then home to clean-up. But don't quit... More

Hands down my favorite beach in all of Massachusetts. The view is spectacular and water is bearable. Just watch out for sharks? :P

Nothing beats swimming in the ocean and then stopping up at the Beachcomber for a nice cold beer and some raw bar! Plenty of options for lunch or dinner but be prepared to wait a bit as this place is always packed!

We use to take our kids here, but it got so crowded outside after a while only my wife and I would go. Food is good. But what makes this place so unique is that you are on the Ocean. Great place to have drinks with friends. Music on some nights. Parking lot can get crowded.

The Beachcomber is an institution...primarily for the college crowd. We are parents of college students, but we still love a visit each year. The fried clams are irrisistable! Get there at 8am to wait in line until 9am for a parking spot. Hang at the beach until you are hungry, then trek up the dunes for your your food and... More

We went in late August, so the place was packed, but we only has to wait about 25 minutes for a table outside (the wait was much shorter to eat inside). Though the place was overcrowded, my chair kept bumping into the chair of the person behind me every time I moved, the atmosphere was still nice. What you come... More

The only restaurant on the ocean beach! the Beachcomber is as casual as it gets. People wander in into the tent covered bar area for quick lunch and drinks, or into the old building for lunch. A shirt over your bathing suit is all that is required and there is often live music. It is mostly a young crowd.
