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.

We went to Winslow Tavern quite randomly as the seating and lightings outside in the garden in front of the building got my interest. We were really positively surprised! The place is very charming and cozy. The food was fantastic, full of flavours and the portions quite generous! The service was pretty good as well! Defenitely a restaurant worth checking... 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.
