Typical Cape Cod restaurant

It is not that great. I had the fish sandwich but the fish did not seem to be cooked well. They are noted for their fries but I did not see the appeal. I felt that the prices are high for the meal.

Went to the Cape "off season" when other fish markets weren't open. "Take Out" ordered steamed lobster (only - just the lobster) to take back to our cottage. $25.00 for a 1.5 lb lobster!! $100 dinner for 4 people with no salad, potato, vegetables! Royal rip off! And they no longer drop the lobster in boiling water, which kills them... More

We love the Catch of the Day and visit it when we stay next door at The Southfleet Motor Inn. The food is fresh and the service is very friendly. We love Stormy the bartender. He is great.

We've been to many restaurants over the years, but the one we always consistently enjoy is Catch of the Day. Their chowder is delicious and fresh. Their fried plates are not greasy, but rather light and flavorful. The whole belly clams are fat and tasty. We always start with a bucket of mussels. While the inside dining room is bland... More

This restaurant is next to and run by the same owner as the more elegant Van Renssalears Restaurant nearby, with the same attention to freshness and quality. The atmosphere is more informal, the food is somewhat less expensive with less variety in the menu. Still very excellent quality, fresh seafood, with choices of 4 sauces/presentations. The Cajun blackened seafood is... More

Really good food here. Not sure why it isn't more popular. Best fried clams in town IMHO. Van Rensallear's, next door, is much busier, and while it's good, I'd choose Catch Of the Day first.

It's not fancy, but Fresh seafood is awesome, menu includes the ability to try two soups, most patrons get a bucket of shellfish but we visited on a cold rainy day so chowder was in ordered. Friendly staff

My husband and I were in Cape Cod for the day in October and happened upon this gem because the restaurant we had found on Trip Advisor was already closed for the season. I don't know if that one was good but this one was a true find! Tiny little place but very fresh and simply great! We split an... More

This is a small restaurant with very simple but fresh seafood. We ordered the grilled fish with asparagus and a bucket of local mussels. The grilled fish came with no sauces which we really appreciate and it was cooked to perfection. Very fresh and tasty. The mussels were very good but the broth could be tastier. Nice service.

This roadside seafood cafe is a must for anyone who is in the area. The lobster roll is delicious and the raw oysters are so fresh. My daughter had delicious fish tacos. I think the cook is from New Orleans and everything is seasoned really well. My only complaint is that the lobster roll didn't appear to be fresh. I... More
