“great dive bar! friendly staff and regulars!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2010

perfect place to have a few cold ones after a day at the beach. Owner is very friendly and a great bartender. Can't beat the prices, $2.50 for a bud light on Cape Cod. Food was excellent: steamers, lobster, steak tips! Can't wait for my vacation next summer so I can go back.

“Great local Lobster joint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2010

Dropped in here on a whim after leaving an expensive restaurant which we did not care for. This is a small local joint and just what we wanted. Great clam chowder and steamed lobster, very large martinis as well. Reasonably prices, not fancy but we enjoyed it a lot.

“Tourist trap? Please”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2010

I have to respond to the person who labeled The Wooden Shoe a tourist trap. Anybody who has ever gone to The Shoe, as we locals call it, know that very few tourists go there. That's how we like it. They're the ones who ruin everything by expecting a place that serves $1.50 PBR's to act like a five star restaurant. Rob and Michelle (the owners) are gems. I've been going there for 10 years. It's my favorite bar on the Cape. I'm tempted not to write a good review, because that might mean more people will come to my sanctuary, but I can't begrudge them the extra business.

“Limited Menu but Lots of Character: The Wooden Shoe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2009

The Wooden Shoe is more like a pub. They don't offer a lot of options food-wise but I had my favorite lobster roll of the trip here. I liked the atmosphere, which really felt local, not touristy.
