The Brewster Fish House


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

Located on Cape Cod. The evolution of the Brewster Fish House from retail fish market to an acclaimed seafood restaurant has been remarkable. A fiercely loyal clientele reflects the quality of food and service. Rated in the "top 50" by Zagat, "this unassuming cottage garners raves for its outstanding contemporary menu." We are happy to accommodate vegetarian and celiac diets.

The food is quite good, albeit pricey for what you get. I went for lunch with my folks. The price might lead you to think it’s gourmet, but it’s just decent standard fare.

Dishes have a unique flair to the standard fare. Food is fabulous as is the service. They don’t accept reservations, the wait is worth it.

I've always heard this was a great restaurant, and after visiting many others in the area since 2006, we decided to finally go here. Great expectations - big disappointment. First - it was a VERY small menu. The only fish offered was Salmon and Monkfish....More

They do not offer specific gluten free dishes - would not recommend for a child eight years old.
