They old owners must have sold Cooke's in Hyannis because the fried seafood quality has changed. Cook's Hyannis used to be hands down the best seafood around. You can imagine my surprise when I went in the other day and ordered the seafood platter and the quality as very different from before. Gone were the incredibly thin and delicate onion... More

Had broiled seafood dinners - scallops and haddock. Both very tasty, not greasy, good portions. Order at the front counter and meals brought to your table. Very clean dining area and very clean bathrooms. Must have made some changes since last year when we ate here. A very nice place to eat.

Unsure what to expect but wet night and close to our hotel so went in. Lots of choice, served at the table, a beer or glass of wine available. It was fast food and not 'fine dining' but it was good, hot and fresh. Great

Wasn't sure what to expect, because it has a "chain" look about it, and you have to order in front and they server brings your order. I wasn't expecting much - but then the fish and chips arrived! OMG! I consider myself a fried fish aficionado, and the two huge piece of fried fish were perfect! To make excellent fried... More

Not from here, never been, just hungry. Right from the start, welcomed professionally by a family employee eager to set me on the right track. Had to have the Clam Chowder...Yum. Went right to the fresh Lobster Roll...Yum. With the Chowder appetizer, and the Lobster Roll with hot crispy fries, the amount of food, and its appearance was spot on.... More

While nearby for a family wedding, we took a break from all the togetherness to take advantage of local seafood. Cooke's is a comfortable, straightforward eatery, not at all fancy, but with hard-to-resist fried fish or fresh lobster. We both had po'boys; one was fried shrimp (with cole slaw on the side) and the other fried blue belly clams (with... More

My kid ordered a burger and said it was good. We only ordered fried food, so no comments on other kind of seafood. They have kids menu, as well as a daily specials - similar to their platters, except they are couple dollars cheaper and smaller in portion. That worked well for us.

My senior Aunt and Uncle love this place. I've eaten seafood all over the Cape and I have to agree with the elders: this is the best and most consistent seafood restaurant of it's class. We like to get take out and watch the sunsets on the bay. The menu is mix and match, you have many choices/options and it... More

We got the fisherman's platter for take out. Was disappointing in terms of amount of seafood vs fries. We didn't realize the difference until we got the same platter at a different seafood place, which had almost double the amount of scallops, oysters, and shrimp and was $6 cheaper than Cooke's. We got take-out this time because last year we... More

Having read so many great reviews we had high expectations. The restaurant feels like a fast food cafe with paper plates, plastic cutlery and serve yourself dining so no feedback on service needed. We had lobster rolls which were OK but nothing special. The white wine was very poor so I'd give it a miss even if you normally take... More
