What a gem! Beautiful white sand, free of rocks and broken shells. Parking is on an elevated perch overlooking the ocean which makes for spectacular views. That said, it is a steep decline (and incline) onto the beach on a man made sand path. Parking is $20, but you get a $20 voucher to use at their beachcomber bar where... More

You know you're going somewhere off the beaten path when Waze can't even tell you the name of the road to turn on. The restaurant is located at the entrance to the beach in the middle of nowhere. It is rustic and screams of cape cod charm The setting was perfect. The servers were friendly The food was good and... More

Nice view of the ocean. Great frozen drinks, super cocktails, typical beer offerings except a blueberry beer that was tasty. Great raw bar offerings along with steamed shellfish, lobsters and the famous Wellfleet oysters. Yummy lobster bisque and clam chowder. Crazy busy on a Friday night but everything was prompt. Kid menu available but if it's crowded, might be difficult... More

This is a fun place that I have always wanted to try. It is very busy and you can expect a half hour wait on week nights. Service was very good and so were our meals. The lobster was a bit pricey in comparison to some other places, but it was delicious. My husband had the crab cakes and enjoyed... More

Don't bother unless you are on the local beach or are an immature 20 something. The food is ok but grossly overpriced for the quality and the ambience is awful.

An annual stop for us to meet with other friends that are also vacationing on the Cape. The oysters are really good and reasonable, the food better than average, and a view that is great. The kids saw seals and claimed to see a shark go after one. True or not, The Beachcomber provides memories for all.

This is much more than the beach shack it appears to be. The raw bar on the deck serves amazing oysters, clams, and (don't miss it) seared (basically raw) sesame tuna. It may be the best tuna we've ever had.

Great spot. Terrific employees. Enjoyable drink choices. Pretty good food. A perfect place to go for lunch by the beach. And a really hot nightspot.

This was our favorite place to eat on our most recent vacation. The view was amazing and the food and atmosphere was perfect and very family friendly. We had no cell reception. The Grizzlied gentleman at the raw bar just felt extra authentic. Fresh, delicious food. And the mixed drinks were all outstanding.
