I've always heard this was a great restaurant, and after visiting many others in the area since 2006, we decided to finally go here. Great expectations - big disappointment. First - it was a VERY small menu. The only fish offered was Salmon and Monkfish....More

The Brewster Fishhouse is a informal and cosy spot best for seafood. The menu emphasizes local aspects by denoting the origin of the different items. So we had Point Judith Calamari, Chatham Monkfish and Ora King Salmon, all of them tasted great. Don’t miss the...More

Small, no reservations taken so you'll likely wait a short bit on their list (there's a nice bar as well). Excellent food and service in a pleasant atmosphere. It's obvious the locals like it and that's always a good sign.

Located on Cape Cod. The evolution of the Brewster Fish House from retail fish market to an acclaimed seafood restaurant has been remarkable. A fiercely loyal clientele reflects the quality of food and service. Rated in the "top 50" by Zagat, "this unassuming cottage garners raves for its outstanding contemporary menu." We are happy to accommodate vegetarian and celiac diets.
