We ate at the Brewster Fish House twice during our recent trip to the Cape. They do not take reservations, so we were prepared to wait a bit for a seat. The host was very friendly our wait was less than expected. Also, we had...More

We both had 4 scallops each which unfortunately had been cooked in burnt oil/butter. Tasted very burnt and bitter against the sweetness of the scallops. Unpeeled and undercooked Jerusalem artichokes. In all a very disappointing and eye watering expensive meal. We will never ever return.

Been coming to Brewster Fish House for too many years to count and the food just keeps getting better. The classic favorites, Fish House Chowder (Velvety Goodness) and the Freshest Calamari on the planet should not be missed. The specials are just that, very special....More

We started going to the Brewster Fish House a few years ago on our annual weekend on the Cape. Should have added the sooner. Get there early or plan to wait. Craft cocktails, small but varied menu. Good service, big flavors. It was a crisp...More

Dropped $60 on lunch while enduring glacial service and bland food. I wrote to the owner a few days later and he replied that we should have said something while were there. But here's the thing, we were on vacation and I felt we had...More

Used to go all the time when we could sit in the window by the bar but were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Service was fair to good. The quality of the food made up for any other problems..

Came very highly rated, found the restaurant to be very causal. We had a party of eight (8) but they would not give us a reservation for a Monday night. Found the prices were very high and the quantity of the food less than expected....More

I have visited the Fishhouse approximately six times. There will not be a seventh. The hostess and waitress where shabbily dressed and looked dirty. To begin with, oor beginning drinks were mixed up. The offering of rolls were hard and chewy. I specifically asked to...More

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.
