Five of us came in for dinner at 9:20 on a Friday night, their website says they are open until 10:00. We were not welcomed warmly. Because it was the end of the night, the hostess rudely discouraged us from dining. Our server was much friendlier and didn't mind us being there later in the night (thank god). Two of us had filet mignon. I found the filet oddly chewy and the mashed potatoes too salty. The rest of the guests however enjoyed their meals. the atmosphere was warm and quaint with local flair.

This was my fourth visit to the Wicked Oyster. With another couple we have had lunch and dinner here and it was all good all the time. The food preparation and presentation is outstanding . I ate a tuna steak on couscous encircled by tasty Brussels sprouts. It was perfect . The best ever, no need for a knife . The wine list is indeed flawless as is the service. It is a cozy but good sized restaurant which is generally quiet and suitable for all foodies. The scallops were enjoyed by friends as was the steak. Do not miss it. The cook deserves the highest praise.

The breakfast here is outstanding--there is a sizable menu with some unusual offerings. The French toast, for example, was made using an extra large, extra thick bread. The hollandaise sauce was perfect.

The older building that houses the Wicked Oyster is charming, with a delightful garden in front.

This restaurant never fails us. The food is reliable, wine list great and servers are knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
We loved the sashimi app, beet and chevre salad and our seafood entrees. No dessert this time, that would have been overkill for us.
A great experience, as usual.

This is my 2nd dining experience at the Wicked Oyster, and both were exceptional. The food is eclectic and incredibly delicious. The atmosphere is cozy but still with a touch of elegance, Cape Cod style. The service was right on the mark, 100% of the time. Sadly the Cape is a summer escape for me, otherwise this would be a dining experience that I would treat myself to as often as possible. A must experience for those visiting the outer Cape.
