“Consistently good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Every year when we visit the cape we eat here, every year it is excellent! This year is no exception. Although our waitress was a little disinterested, food was still great. Love the menu! The small cozy atmosphere is charming.

“yummy yummy yummy!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

This was location 2 of a night out that started w drinks elsewhere...this was DEFINITELY the winner of the evening. It is a tiny, cozy little place with a very small bar-that's the downside. The food was incredibly fresh & flavorful & everyone at the table loved what they ordered. Service was excellent & personal. It's a great place for an intimate cozy dinner w friends or date night, wouldn't necessarily recommend for kids.
Will definitely return!

“Worth the Wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The lobster bisque is fabulous! The Calamari was light and almost melted in your mouth; one of the best we have ever had. The halibut was very well prepared as was the unique manner which they serve lobster. As someone else noted we waited for about a hour for our table. We sipped wine at a little table that was set up outside, everyone waiting was very friendly, there was a warm breeze so the time went fast. The service was fine, no teenager servers! The bar tender was quick and the wine was excellent. The price was high if compared with a clam shack, but the Brewster Fish House is no clam shack! We would recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for a fine meal when in Brewster.

“Solid food, decent service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The menu and food are good, service was impersonal and slow.
Not sure if I would go back, plus it is a bit pricey.

“Overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

Totally overrated. Pricey and small portions.
I was told we had a 45 minute wait which turned into an hour and 20 minutes.
The one bartender was so slow. We stood for a long time before even being acknowledged at the bar.
The lobster was fabulous, but took a long time getting out.
I won't eat here again.
