Since moving to Wellfleet 10 years ago, I've come to love the Bookstore as my favorite. I've never had a bad meal, always excellent. Year 'round comfortable walking in anytime and either eat at the bar or in the restaurant. An amazing view of Wellfleet Harbor right across the street. Love it!

As homeowners in Wellfleet bookstore is one of our "go to" restaurants especally in the off season. The food is always above average and the waitstaff works hard to bring your food quickly.

My wife and I had the broiled seafood (shrimp, scallops and cod) - it was great and priced about right.

Very tasty local shellfish. The baked scallops are my favorite. The best wine and martini list on the cape. Best view of the bay of any restaurant in Wellfleet. Must be doing something right, the restaurant is celebrating 50 year anniversary this year! Congratulations!!

We have been to The Bookstore several times. It came as a recommendation from a local shop owner. The view and the food are fabulous. They make a great Bloody Mary.

I've been here many times. I recommend this place to all my friends and visitors to Wellfleet to visit this restaurant. It has the best fried oysters, and many other wonderful seafood dishes. If you like raw oysters and a good martini this is the place to go. Also have had some wonderful breakfasts here. Prices are not too steep... More

Have been coming here for years and years, it is always a special spot in both summer and winter, to enjoy some really great seafood, fresh from the sea right across the street. Can't beat the view of the harbor either. Surprisingly creative cocktail menu, and great beer list. Great friendly service too. Grab a seat outside if you can... More
