This place has been a Cape cod tradition for 41yrs passed down from father to son. It is a clean warm welcoming family oriented place. We've had the privilege of dining at Cooke's for the last 22yrs . My wife and I were introduced to Cooke's by her parents (Ruth &Jack Foote who were one time residents on the cape... More

We stopped for lunch one day and had the clam chowder and a fried seafood platter. The food was good and the service was good. Great place for quick meal

I was really looking forward to eating here after reading the comments others had reported. I ordered the crab cake platter and was disappointed. The crab cakes tasted like more filler than crab, but the fries and Cole slaw were good. Not sure that I would go back to try something else.

I've been coming to Cookes since the mid 1970's and the food has always been perfect. Their fried clams and cheeseburgers are the best! You won't be disappointed.

As someone always having to monitor my sodium intake, I find this destination is a must for my vacation eating on Cape Cod. They do not use salt and they cook everything with the freshest ingredients. Very efficient in taking the order, paying, receiving a number, the food is delivered to the table. Cannot wait for next year's treat of... More

Clean parking lot, easy entrance, well lit, I point these things out due to the area some or most restaurants you can not find the parking lot entrance. Walk in and place your order, I told the gentleman at the counter it was my first time in, he recommended the New England clam chowder, OUT OF THIS WORLD..... I watched... More

Our party of 8 dined here last week and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. My son and daughter raved about the lobster rolls and my daughter's friend loved her fried fish sandwich. My other daughter said that the chicken tenders were some of the best she had ever had and we all loved the fries. The clam chowder was yummy, creamy... More

This restaurant is not your average seafood restaurant. You go in, place your order, and seat yourself and your order is brought to you, pronto! The prices are very reasonable, and the portions adequate. The menu is varied, and they also have specials. Seafood is fresh! What more can you ask for, especially in Cape Cod?

I was craving a lobster roll since I crossed the Sagamore Bridge. After a morning on the beach, I was on a quest to find one. I checked my Trip Advisor app for places nearby and off to Cooke's we went. Supposedly voted "Best Lobster Roll on Cape Cod" by the Boston Globe, I gave it a try. Not bad... More
