Great Place to Hang During the Oyster Fest

Been here a few times and always liked it. Great atmosphere, food and drinks. Food is flavorful with a farm to table and local flare. During the oyster fest its a great place to hang outside and watch all the action.

We ate lunch here early in September. We were seated before opening time and still offered a drink which was nice. I had a crabcake sandwich and my husband had the BLT (prosciutto, lobster, tomato, and aioli). My crab sandwich was very good. My husband's sandwich was "goopy", far too much aioli, and very little lobster for the price. The... More

Flavors were very good for our meal but the seafood dishes were lacking...enough seafood. Also, we were very happy to be seated outdoors street side yet the service was incredibly slow. Our party ended up having a two our dinner and were only offered an initial drink. It was a bummer.

While I'm glad our outdoor terrace impressed and the flavors of our dishes did as well, I'm sorry to hear that other areas were lacking. Usually our dishes are filled with hearty portions of seafood - please could you let us know which dishes you had because this is a very unusual point of view. As for the service, it... More

We stopped in for the famous Bloody Mary's at Winslow's Tavern during the crazy busy Wellfleet Oysterfest. We ended up with our group standing outside on a beautiful sunny and warm afternoon with deliciously spicy Bloody Mary's and enjoyed people watching. A great spot, and a fun atmosphere .

WOW! What a find. Each year we spend a week in the Cape(this year we came the very end of Sept.). We have our usual dining places, but opted to try something new. All four of our meals were delicious - the cod, scallops, lamb shanks and seafood linguini... The homemade bread was served hot, fresh out of the oven... More

This place is the perfect example of "fake cape" ambience and decor nicely blended with miserable food

I've got to say, I'm really disappointed to hear we didn't meet your expectations. We've been a staple on the Cape for the past decade, and everything we cook is made with locally-sourced ingredients that should be full of flavor. It may have been an off day, but I know we're capable of more, so I hope we can show... More

This restaurant, purchased by owners of Moby Dick's when Oesop's Tables became available, has a delightful patio in comfortable indoor seating. We were hungry in that pre-dinner when most Cape Cod restaurants are closed, but upstairs for served delicious drinks and light fare, well we waited for dinner time. Their menu offers many seafood choices, all well-prepared and reliably delicious.... More

My mom and I absolutely loved this place. Service was very friendly, and the atmosphere was awesome. They have an adorable front yard dining area that is in shade so you're not boiling under the sun. We had burgers that were cooked as requested, and were very good.
