We were with a group and ate on the second floor deck overlooking the harbor. A very friendly place with good service and fine food.

Been going to this area of Cape Cod for over 40 years, but visited this restaurant for the first time last week. Great location looking out to the harbor and the docks. We had a good server who got us our dinners quickly and was very attentive to our needs. My wife and two friends ordered different meals, but we... More

This little restaurant had some lovely fresh catch--the atmosphere/decor is casual, so don't expect elegant. Service was prompt and efficient.

We love the Bookstore for a summertime lunch of oysters or littlenecks chased down with an ice cold draft, sitting on the upper deck overlooking Wellfleet Harbor. This is living!

Very good site opposite the beach with view from the deck. Not a bad spot to go at odd hours of the afternoon for a drink-with good cocktails and drinks selection. Most of the food is standard fare with good local seafood. Portugese stew is a favorite of mine.

My family enjoyed a dinner at the Bookstore over the summer. Normally there is a line to get a seat at this eatery - it is so popular with tourists and locals. We were lucky to sit on the deck adjoining the bar. Being outside on a summer evening was a treat, with a good view of Cape Cod bay,... More

I have ordered the Caprese Salad the last two times I have dined at the Bookstore Restaurant. It is insanely good. I'm a foodie and this dish knocks it out of the park every time. Highly recommended!!!

The clam roll (my main dish) was stacked with fried clams (the bellies, which is what I prefer) and no sauce to get in the way of the clam taste; the accompanying sweet potato fries were also excellent. The Wellfleet oysters (half-dozen) were succulent and fresh, and a fellow diner showed me how to eat them like a local. Service... More

We love going to eat at the Bookstore, we try to return yearly. Fried Oysters are a must try. They definitely do seafood right!

We've been here several times over the past few years since they opened as a restaurant. The food has gotten better and the prices have gone up. The décor hasn't kept up. Its not fixed up and its not rustic. It feels a bit "pre-fab" ... windows and lighting circa "Home Depot". . That said, the staff if friendly and... More
