For those of us who are likely to occasionally partake of fried foods while on vacation; Cooke's is fantastic! They obviously change their frying oil frequently, because everything on the plate (scallops, fries, and onion rings) tasted fresh, and they were delicious!

The best fried clams in the world. Jenny, Spiro and Jimmy will give you great food with quick service and a friendly smile. Eat inside, on the patio or take out. My first stop when I get to the Cape.

We got 2 friend clam platters which were delicious. They came out hot and fast. Every time we come to Cape Cod we have to eat here at least once.

Great meal and good service. Food portions were very good and everything tasted good. The onion rings may be the best I've had ever.

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
