A comfortable but cozy restaurant with a lot of heart. The food is outstanding and their collection of spirits is enormous and includes some rare finds (Pappy Van Winkle's bourbon for one!). On our last visit I had the duck, which was perfectly prepared and delicious but we started with some local oysters and the lobster bisque. The oysters were... More

My wife and I on our way to Orleans stopped by the Brewster Fish House for a late lunch. We got lobster bisque for a starter, mussels, and fish and chips. The bisque was absolutely delicious and the entrees were very good. The kale slaw was also very interesting and the service friendly.

We had originally planned to eat here on the previous day, but the restaurant is closed on Tuesdays. We heard good reviews from our innkeeper and on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed! We went in for a late lunch (they are open until 3 PM for lunch, close until 5 and reopen then. The restaurant was fairly full so... More

Brewster Fish House isn't really a New England fish house. Rather, it's a fine dining restaurant menu with a more casual atmosphere. The food was very good but the Asian influence in most of the dishes will not appeal to everyone. If you are a foodie you'll find it interesting. I'd suggest looking at the menu before going to see... More

Brewster Fish came highly touted by some friends (and others). We were finally able to hook up with them for dinner one evening this past summer. The ambiance and service were excellent. I am a fish eater with a small range, so the outcome was pretty much predetermined. The menu was VERY limited and pretty much only fish selections (what... More

My wife and I drove by The Brewster Fish House and decided to stop without any prior knowledge on the dining experience. We were delighted to find that the food was excellent - we had the calamari appetizer and both had the lunch cod cake special. I especially enjoy fried calamari and found this dish to be excellent - light... More

Excellent meal (seafood of course). Excellent service. Nice ambiance. If we go back to Cape Cod we will go again.

We had a lovely dinner last night at the Brewster Fish House. The dishes are inventive and our server knew every detail about all of the unique ingredients. Between us we had the pompano appetizer, chowder, bouillabaisse and cod. Delicious and great service. Parking is plentiful here -- lots in back. Keep in mind that they don't take reservations. No...

Dining with friends who live on Cape Cod, I guess I expected more. The small space was rustic yet had a sense of elegance. Service was adequate. The limited menu offered a selection of fish, meats and a vegetarian option that left me wanting; I read the choices three times, turned the menu over looking for additional choices. The lobster...

We have lived full time on the Cape for several years and had yet to eat at this icon of fine food. We had tried several times to go with friends but schedules etc always seemed to get in the way. Even lunch never worked out. Tonight was completely different and we were able to get together with four friends... More
