Been driving by this place for years and never went in. To be honest it doesn't look that appealing especially with the "We Welcome Tour Buses" sign. After having problems at Sir Cricket's I decided to give Cooke's a try by ordering my usual a clam roll. Was I surprised, I think it was the best roll I had all... More

We are visiting Cape Cod at the end of the shoulder season, so many restaurants and shops have already closed for the season. Cooke's was open, and we tried it for lunch. i can't eat wheat, so they made me a special dish of broiled haddock that was quite good. My husband had the fish 'n chips, which was almost... More

For those of us who are likely to occasionally partake of fried foods while on vacation; Cooke's is fantastic! They obviously change their frying oil frequently, because everything on the plate (scallops, fries, and onion rings) tasted fresh, and they were delicious!

The best fried clams in the world. Jenny, Spiro and Jimmy will give you great food with quick service and a friendly smile. Eat inside, on the patio or take out. My first stop when I get to the Cape.

We got 2 friend clam platters which were delicious. They came out hot and fast. Every time we come to Cape Cod we have to eat here at least once.

Great meal and good service. Food portions were very good and everything tasted good. The onion rings may be the best I've had ever.

This place has been a Cape cod tradition for 41yrs passed down from father to son. It is a clean warm welcoming family oriented place. We've had the privilege of dining at Cooke's for the last 22yrs . My wife and I were introduced to Cooke's by her parents (Ruth &Jack Foote who were one time residents on the cape... More

I was really looking forward to eating here after reading the comments others had reported. I ordered the crab cake platter and was disappointed. The crab cakes tasted like more filler than crab, but the fries and Cole slaw were good. Not sure that I would go back to try something else.

I've been coming to Cookes since the mid 1970's and the food has always been perfect. Their fried clams and cheeseburgers are the best! You won't be disappointed.
