Great lobsters !

Have passed by the Wooden Shoe many times visiting the Dennis Port area, but never tried it out until this past summer. The atmosphere is very homey, nothing fancy. But, the twin lobsters were amazing and the price was right. One waitress was pretty much running the whole room, which isn;t that... read more

We took our grandkids to The Wooden Shoe in July and all went well. We try to stop at "The Shoe" yearly and always enjoy this spot. I get scallops and my wife had the lobster roll which she raved about. The kids menu was limited but quite accessible to our somewhat fussy grandkids. The only negative is that that... More

Went there later one night because of the reviews. The lobster rolls were huge! I loved mine while my sister said that hers had a "funny" taste. The place is small, so try to go at an off time. there was one waitress for the whole place, but she was excellent! Cash only!

This small place is largely a bar, with great regional seafood. In particular, their lobster roll is basically an open-face roll, with a triple sized portion of Lobster in a light salad. Their NE chowder is also well done. Atmosphere is nothing special, but you can take out.

The Wooden Shoe has avery plain environment with no frills. However it offered the best lobster roll our group has ever had and that is their claim to fame. The staff were courteous and welcoming and they were efficient in putting together our order. Would definitely return.

My husband and I tried having dinner here last year we were shocked by the outside but decided to go in anyway and were more shocked by the inside and very small menu. We left because we thought it was old and dirty looking. I see from other reviews that many people think it's great and love the food they... More

The Shoe offers a small yet great Old Cape atmosphere. The beer is cold and the seafood is fresh! The waitstaff were fantastic on our visit. It was our best meal on the Cape factoring in food quality, laid back atmosphere and price. A cant miss on Lower County Road!

The entire area of Cape Cod is just bustling with activity right now! Last night we decided to try "The Wooden Shoe" because number 1 it was right around the corner from where we were staying and number 2 after reading reviews on it my husband and I couldn't resist trying the lobster roll. I am NOT kidding you, it's... More

We were recommended this place by David,The Old Landing Motel owner. It wasn't anything special to look at but the service was friendly as were all the other drinkers & diners. There lobster rolls were the biggest and best value we had ever seen and the beer was good too.
