The staff were very friendly and helpful. Service was excellent . The sunset over the oyster beds was magnificent.

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

If you are looking for local cuisine, the Bookstore and Restaurant in Wellfleet is the BEST in the area. Their oysters are the FRESHEST and their breading is very light. Always friendly and a very casual atmosphere. It is great for families or 2 people or any casual get-together. We have yet to have a bad meal there and have... More

We stumbled upon this place with no recommendation. Loved it. We have found that bookstores are great places to get advice on local restaurants. So, going to a restaurant attached to a bookstore was a natural. We would have happily returned for dinner. The sautéed mussels were great as was the little neck clams casino. We enjoyed the casual atmosphere... More

We ate several meals here and even did takeout. I would have given them 5 stars as their fried clam strips, cod and fried oysters were the best we've tasted. This coming from someone who never liked oysters until I had theirs. However, we ate a Sunday afternoon dinner and were disappointed. Our Oysters Rockefeller, while tasty, had the smallest... More
