Reviewed July 28, 2014

One my favorite restaurants on the Cape. Casual, good food and great views. They have a nice variety of entre choices and good appetizers. I always get the Portuguese stew (Nice collection of seafood's in a spicy sauce), very good and my wife had the steak tips. Highly recommend!

Great food and drinks...well thought out menu. Seafood and other specialty dishes were equally delicious. Generous portions. Really friendly, accomodating staff. We love this restaurant and hope to return many times again.

“Nice casual dinner”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

My family and I went here for a quick sit down dinner. We got a seat outside but the place does fill up quickly. Food was good, buffalo wings had great flavor & delicious scallop roll-very fresh! We were also pleased to see a children's menu. Didn't feel rushed but certainly quick service. We would definitely go again.

“Good Food”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

We went to the Bookstore and Restaurant after a day at the beach. We were too tired to cook and were looking for a place in Wellfleet where the wait was short. There was no waiting for our group of 8 to be seated and to take our orders. We sat upstairs and inside so we did not have a view as others have mentioned. There was plenty on the menu from which to choose , even for those who did not want seafood. They had a wine and cocktail list. The portions were very good. Many in our group had food to bring home. There was no actual bag to carry the remainder of our dinners, just a to do plate. That is my only criticism, a minor one, that I note only because I was holding a young child as well. The main point is that the food at the Bookstore and Restaurant is good and is recommended.

“Great first Night at the cape”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

First time at the Bookstore, and really enjoyed the experience. Children's menu was fairly priced, and the portions were ample. Fish sandwich and scallops were perfectly cooked and excellent.
