“A Good Meal but. . .”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

The Fleetian is well situated at a major intersection in Wellfleet with an outdoor setting that is just right for drinks and dinner. A recently installed small raw bar adds to the available selections for food.. A modest menu with some interesting appetizers and entrees. Try the drunken oysters for a starter or extend it for a full meal. The seafood is nicely done with some interesting sauces. Surf and turf tonight included shrimp and flank steak with a side of home fries and a small green salad -- very tasty! Limited wine and beer menu. The crowd comes to sit outside and enjoy the breezes off harbor and an occasional musical group. However, it is understaffed both in the dining area and the kitchen so the wait for everything is tedious. Also, an army of ants seemed to find it way throughout the outdoor venue. Enthusiastic wait staff, but overworked. This new option for Wellfleet dining has some work ahead to be top notch.

“Amazing food, friendly staff!”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

The food is incredible. We had the oysters for appetizer. I had the lamb special. Our waitress was very attentive and very passionate about the food. Drinks were amazing! Great dinner, highly recommended.
