“Best fish sandwich I've ever had”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

My husband and I sat at the bar on a busy Thursday for lunch. We ordered the grilled fish (cod) sandwich and it was excellent: a large, thick piece of fish perfectly cooked and tasty. French fries were also prepared just right. Beers on tap were cold and the bartender was friendly.

We also enjoyed the people watching.

“cod reuben-yum!”

We had lunch at the lighthouse. The lunches, 2 burger platters and one cod reuben was served quickly and was good. We voted the cod reuben to be the best.

“A Mainstay on Main Street”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

The Lighthouse is open year round, so has become the mainstay for residents and tourists alike. A very good menu with excellent omelettes and good blueberry muffins sets the stage for the early (and late) risers for breakfast. Lunch is typical diner food with sandwiches, soups, salads and some specials (the fish and chips are excellent!) as well. Decent beer selection at a bar that takes up a major share of the restaurant so ask for a table in the alcove if you want some space for conversation and relaxation. The wait staff still finds it difficult to warm to tourists But, It is still the place for a good, solid meal without the frills.

“Great Home fries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

We only go here for breakfast. Though we miss the cranberry and blueberry muffins, the coffee always keeps coming. The staff is nice, it is a good value and in the center of town. Everyone goes there.

“Lunchtime sandwichs at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Easy access restaurant on the main street of Wellfleet with reliable if not spectacular local food at very reasonable prices. Two of had fish sandwiches, one had a reuben, and the fourth had a seafood reuben made with fish instead of beef. All sandwichs were excellent, and we paid about $40 for a table of four with soft drinks or water. Service was a little slow - they were crowded and there appeared to be a shortage of servers. We'll go back.
