Great place for lunch or dinner. Two locations: Mashpee or Hyannis. Counter service. Full bar in Mashpee. Plenty of parking both locations. Every once in a while the fried seafood tastes really good. We enjoy the fried shrimp, but have tried many things on menu...More

Cooke's remains one of the best places for fried clams on the Cape. They are so good that I rarely try anything else. This time I ordered a clam plate to go, and the portions were very generous. Fries good, maybe could be crisper and...More

This restaurant is clean and comfortable. Don’t expect anything fancy or china and stainless steel flatware. It’s paper and plastic. The menu is mostly seafood either fried or broiled. The selection is ample. The service is good as expected for a resort town.

We have visited Cooke's twice and frankly don't get the hype. Perhaps, as lifelong New Englanders, we're spoiled but the food was just average. There are certainly better on the Cape.

I will give it an A for cleanliness and friendly staff. But the food is average at best. The fried clams had the smallest clam bellies that I have ever seen. Keep in mind I live in this State so it far from my first...More
