They actually stay open for after WHAT theater performance for desert and drinks. Fantastic upstairs bar, most friendly staff, the owner is actually involved in WHAT productions. We returned the following night for dinner and were most impressed, and have already been back several times. Tiny downtown Wellfleet IS the old Cape Cod still alive and vibrant.

I ate here years ago when it first opened and while it was good, it wasn't anything special. Recently came back and was completely amazed. The duck pappardelle was fantastic! Nice selection of wines by the glass. Nice to have this as an option when seeking out something different from the usual cape cod seafood fare.

Happy to know the second time around really blew you away, especially that duck pappardelle. Hope we'll get to cook something just as delicious for you this season as well. Best, Winslow's Tavern More

I have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. In warm weather it is so pleasant to be seated outside on the front terrace. On cool nights it is cozy inside . There are always nightly specials in addition to an excellent regular menu. I particularly like the special way that WT does a Caesar salad. Unique, with thin... More

There is nothing quite like a consistently good restaurant, equally very talented in food, presentation, service and wine list. It has a pretty good bar as well, but as I am a wine fan, I don't stress the bartender very often. Tonight we had the oysters for starters, both the baked with pesto, and the raw with the Pernod mignonette,... More

We have been here many times and the food is always fantastic. Our only complaint is that they aren't open year round but it is always worth the wait till May to see what new menu the chef has come up with. Each dish is thoughtfully crafted and when all the components of the dish are eaten together they create... More

Winslow's Tavern has a lovely ambience, nice lighting, tables spaced well apart, attentive staff. The menu is nice and contains some interesting and unusual dishes. The menu is definitely not typical "tavern" food ~ much more eclectic choices. If you like nice dining, you will like it here. Prices are moderate.

This was a repeat visit for my husband and I. Since we had a good experience before, we thought we would try it again. They did not disappoint. We went for an 8pm sitting as they do not take reservations and their has been a lot of visitors on Cape. There was a small wedding party in progress and we... More

One of the finer dining establishments in charming downtown Wellfleet. Weather permitting, dining in the garden is a must. Excellent, deliciously prepared cuisine, combined with great service ensures a pleasurable experience. An excellent choice for lunch or dinner.
