I have been going to the Beachcomber for 43 years and it has yet to disappoint. Food is amazing. Offers a full menu. Drinks are refreshing and tasty. Watch them shuck oysters right in front of you. Family friendly. Dress code: bathing suits, flip flops and sunglasses. Situated at the top of the dune at Cahoon Hollow Beach. Get there... More

So many happy memories down here over several summers - the staff are great, as is the food and the banter. You'll always have a great time & you'll want to come back again.

As I drove down a long, dark road looking for the Beachcomber, I thought I was lost. Then you see the glow of lights. It's like the party oasis at the end of the tunnel. You first realize something's special about the Beachcomber because parking (& there's plenty of it) is tight. There's an electricity in the air as you... More

It is very casual and lively. People either just hop in after a swim, or come specifically for the restaurant, so it is a mixed crowd in attitude and dress code. Variety of local beers, excellent seafood and bar food. A mandatory local experience!

It is a little loud and raucous but is a beach bar, that's what I hoped for, and my expectation fell way below the great service I experienced. the food was excellent mid-range fresh and fun. the drinks were great (if it is running, take the funk bus to the next beach...

The Beachcomber is not that easy to find but well worth the effort. As far as I know it is the only restaurant and bar located within the Cape Cod National Seashore national park. Because it had existed before this area became a national park they were grandfathered in to continue operating as a restaurant and bar. It is casual,... More

Had dinner on a recent weeknight after a day at the beach. Waited about 45 minutes for a table at about 6PM. Decent place on the water....so it make a great way to end a day.
