3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We arrived just after 5:30, missing the early bird specials. Loved the grilled bread, Cesar salad, sweet potato fries, and Wellfleet littlenecks. A tasteless seafood stew was graciously replaced with a very good grilled salmon sandwich after we responded honestly to our waitress's inquiry, "How is everything?"

Cups of chowder and gumbo were barely warm. I ordered blackened swordfish that was an extremely small piece, I would guess 4 oz? Right away I asked for some bread to supplement and was charged for it! I had more sweet potato fries than fish. And the swordfish was barely warm. My companion had warm fried clams. Disappointed because it... More

The food was good, however the waiter apparently forgot to turn in our order so after 20 min passed he told us in 7 min. We would have our food. Talked to the manager and he didn't seem to care. The manager stated they where busy. Well if they were busy there would be ppl waiting to be seated, not... More

On our way back to rented cottage in Falmouth, and we found this charming little restaurant/bar. Service was fast and friendly to begin with, but it got busy, and waitress never returned to refill drinks. Left us thirsty. Food, however, was delicious. Enjoyed the atmosphere; there were a lot of locals there.

Great food, service, drinks. Great local flavor, indoor and outdoor seating. Directly across from the entrance to Marconi Beach on Route 6 in Wellfleet, good parking. Nearby gift shops. We started with drinks, beer (Very Cold) and Raw Bar (Very Fresh).

This place used to be fabulous....but...seems to have gone downhill in the past few years. We had been to Moby's the night before and had the fish (cod) sandwich and it was so good, we thought we'd give the Catch another try. Our fried and broiled cod dishes had no taste (usually a sign of frozen fish)...they were both over... More

Sorry to hear your disappointment in your food. We never use frozen fish. French fries are being worked on with our venders as they are unable to send us the ones that we had before. We try to do everything right and are sad to hear you did not have a great experience. we hope you give us another try. More

We have purchased fish/seafood/shellfish from the Catch of the Day market many times. Always fresh! Pick out your lobsters and they will cook them & crack the claws. We have had dinner there many times, always good, more casual than their sister restaurant, Van Rensselaer's a couple of doors down. Both restaurants have great reputations. Catch of the Day has...
