We try to get to this restaurant at least twice while we stay in North Truro...the ride is worth the good food. It's always friendly and busy. The menu offers lots of choices and everything we've ever had over the years has been great. The food is fresh and well prepared. Last visit we had fried calamari that were the... More

We really like this place. We've been here a few times and found even better than reviews. Upstairs porch is fun though even inside seating is worth it. Loved their seafood reuben sandwich, fish sandwich, oysters Rockefeller, clam chowder...even their plain salad had been good. Friendly waitstaff makes this place stand out.

This is probably one of our favorite restaurants to eat at on the Cape. We stumbled upon it a few years ago when all the restaurants in the area had huge wait times. This place had a huge book store attached to it and the shortest wait out of all of them. I'm a big book lover so I was... More

First, the view of the water is fabulous. The quality of the food is outstanding. The Caesar salad is very nice. I get it with salmon, and white anchovies. The Lobster salad plate is creative, large, fresh, and has a wide variety of ingredients. Every thing here is wonderful. I highly recommend the Book Store restaurant in Wellfleet,

Nice view (request a table upstairs). Varied menu with (of course) several seafood items. Lobster rolls are on the small side, but tasty. Really good chowder with lots of clams. Just ok cod sandwich. At $39 (without drinks) a bit pricey for lunch.

Stopped here for lunch on the long weekend. Fabulous clam chowder! A great menu with something for everyone. The sandwiches were huge (pastrami was great). I had the steamed mussels - which were fabulous. If you like powerful bloody marys - they have it! Cannot wait to go back!

Wife and I stopped in for lunch after a hike at the nearby Audubon Center. The place was packed. Because we knew that we would only be snacking at night, we opted for heavier meals. Wife had a salad with grilled salmon that she said was excellent. I had the 'fish pot' - their version of bouillabaisse/ chioppino. My only... More

If you like like oysters, go here! You can watch them being harvested right across the street and know what's on your plate was over there just recently... You can't beat the freshness of the seafood here. They even have a few GLUTEN FREE selections to partake if you require. I had the fish chowder and it was fantastic! I... More

If you are a history buff this is one of the last of a dying breed of restaurant that will soon cease to exist. The atmosphere in the summer is retro cape cod of years gone by! The oysters are from 25 yards away. The clams evan closer! Clam chowda the way it should be. Fried seafood to baked scrod,... More
