Description: Order at the window. Send the kids to scout a table on the sand. This is the place for a plate of fried clams with a slow summer sunset on the side. Steamers with broth and drawn butter, a lobster roll, a fried fish sandwich, onion rings--they're Cape Cod classics for a reason. There may be nothing better. But here's satisfaction for those who might crave something else: grilled tuna with summer vegetables and ponzu, a scallop burrito, fish tacos, Caribbean fish stew. And ice cream, of course: sundaes and frappes, soft-serve and scooped - served every night until 10pm. Our honest-to-goodness clam shack. Right on Wellfleet harbor, next to our original fish market.

“Good seafood shack”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Great to pick up food or eat at the handful of picnic tables on the pier. The service is a little slow but the hot lobster roll is huge and excellent although VERY pricey.

“Great Family Eatery”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Located right at the harbor in Wellfleet. Order at one window, pickup at another and then sit at one of the many picnic tables at the edge of the pier. All kinds of fried seafood, reasonably priced and all very tasty. Plenty to pick from for all tastes and ages. A very good place to take the young children without worrying about them annoying your fellow guests.

Grilled Swordfish sandwich was very good, clam chowder was good but not the best on the cape. Lobster roll too was good but not the best on the cape. But this place is about location, family fun and pretty decent food at a good price. Perfect family eatery that people with young children look for.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Love their scallop and lobster rolls! Their lobster chowder was not so good, really thin and only one piece of lobster...and luke warm. Everything else I have had there has been great!

“Great family outing”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Hands down, this is our kids first choice on our annual trip to Wellfleet. The food is consistently good. My favorite is the salmon, swordfish or tuna sandwich. If ordering lobster roll, I suggest requesting no lettuce. Otherwise, the lobster is skimpy. One treat for our family is having lobsters steamed and cracked by the market in the rear and eating them at home with the market's delicious seaweed salad plus sweet corn and salads.
