The owner Michelle was so nice. My husband had never had steamers before so she offered to make a half order in case I had to be the only one eating them. The steamers were so sweet and fresh. She also got me hooked on a new beer. (Cape Cod Blonde ).

Stopped in recently to see the owners of this wonderful local eatery. We did not intend to eat while there but, after seeing the delicious meals go by us, changed our minds. Are we glad we did! We ordered the chowder and steamers. The very critical chowder eaters in our midst all loved the chowder. It was creamy without being... More

The Wooden Shoe is a great local place to get a quick bite to eat. The food is always good and a terrific Cape experience. The only problem is the menu is limited in the selections making it sometimes difficult to satisify the whole group.

We called to order 2 broiled lobster. They said 1 pound and a quarter, but one of them seemed bigger. It was tasty and came with corn on a cob and coleslaw, Miam!

We walked to this place given its proximity to our motel. We read a good review in a local paper and decided to give it a try. We were looking for appetizers primarily and I had a cup of clam chowder which was a thick creamy base chowder. Flavor was good, and some clams present but not an abundance. My... More

It would be easy to pass by: in fact, even when we got there we thought the place was shut. But it turned out to have been worth trying the doors. The food was excellent. My companions went for the double lobsters, which were something of a feast. I had the lobster sandwich, which was enormous. Memo for Brits: remember... More

The experience at "The Shoe" is unusual. It is not like a regular restaurant. They rarely have menus. They have a daily blackboard usually with lobster and other Cape Cod's favorite food...It is very small and simple with a faithful bar trade and a small dining area with booths....Do not expect perfect service, but do expect good Cape Cod fare.

We read somewhere that the Wooden Shoe won Best Chowder on the Cape so we figured we had to try it. This place is walking distance from our house so why not. It is defininetely more of a bar than a restaurant, complete with a few locals hanging out at the bar. Don't get me wrong, we usually prefer "dive"... More
