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

As I said above, the perfect way to start a long weekend at the Cape, except a dune ride in p town on a gorgeous fall day!

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.
