Beach lovers will love the Beachcomber

You don't come for the food, you come for the EXPERIENCE. You are literally on the beach; a large bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The food is your typical burger fare, and they do have a good raw bar, BUT you came for atmosphere. It is loud, there are crowds, there is laughter; this is... read more

How do you close at 8 pm on a holiday weekend? Way overrated. When it is open, there is a long line and never any parking. Having to take a shuttle what amounts to a frat party is not my cup of tea.

Ok, I'm not a big party girl, if you are, this is the place in Wellfleet for you! The food and drinks are just your average bar food, and the atmosphere is very loud and fun. Too fun for an old fuddy duddy like me. Also a bit too crowded for kids, although you do see families at lunch time.... More

It is difficult to assign an overall rating on a scale of 1 to 5 because the Location and the Raw Bar are top-notch Fabulous(!!!!), but the food and service are only mediocre at best so I had to assign this only 3 stars. It is absolutely worth a visit because of the ambiance and the character of this amazing... More

If you are in Cape Cod and north of Orleans make this a destination for the day. Arrive by 11 am to get parking on site or pay for the town lot. On busy days there is a shuttle. If there is a wait , relax and have cocktails at the side door bar while you wait. I like to... More

My family and I were at the Beachcomber about a month ago on a rainy Wednesday afternoon. We had already been to the Beachcomber a few times over the Summer and had a good time. It was our last night on vacation and the kids insisted that we visit here again. Our server was initially a girl who wore glasses.... More

This is a great beach bar. Granted, we were not here during the normal busy season. We happened upon it by fluke and they were open and holding a fundraiser for the owners son. RIP Lou. What great people! The entire staff was wonderful. The raw bar was the best on the Cape. The biggest and best of all shellfish.... More

Off the main strip on the Cape (Route 6) you find the Beachcomber. Notorious beach bar at the top of one of the worst hills you bike up (remember all you PMCers). We arrived at the gate to find that cars were being turned away. We were greeted by Jeff Spicoli (Fast Times - Sean Penn) who told us it... More

Took the motorcycle to the cape for the weekend and planned on going up to Race Point. Wanted a place to spend the afternoon and have a nice lunch by the beach. Beachcomber did not disappoint. Great beach bar with good food. Motorcycle made it easy to park because this place gets crazy. Don't miss this place if you are... More

Had to check this place out, we had heard so much about it. Arrived around 1pm on a Sunday, we were able to park in the Beachcombers lot which was pretty full. An attendent collects 20 bucks from you before you park, and gives you a voucher worth that for food, or swag inside the resturant. We were able to... More
