We stopped in for a beer while we were waiting for a table to open up at Winslow's, which is across the street. It is a nice place too get a drink or two. We didn't eat there but the who did looked like they were happy with their food.

While attending the oysterfest 2016 we stopped by here for some oyster stew. A bus driver told us they had the best oyster stew in the area. She was correct with her advice. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our oyster stew experience. The stew consist of many flavors and lots of oysters. We lined up outside for our stew... More

The green goat was one of the best omelets I've ever had. The home fries were disgusting and inedible. The waitress was unconcerned about this when I did mention it. Honestly the omelet was good enough to still warrant going there. It wasn't particularly clean or enjoyable atmosphere-wise.

Usually I just stop in here for an iced tea or a coffee, but I have also had the steamed mussels which were good. There is always a lively scene at the bar when the Pats are playing -- if i followed football I'd join in.

The Lighthouse Restaurant is an old reliable lunch stop when I travel through Wellfleet. There are quite a few good dining choices in this town, but this is a place in which I'm always comfortable and can count on a good meal and an interesting beer. It is a simple space with a bar in the middle, and it has... More

Enjoyed lunch here (seafood reubens) in this quaint, rustic venue. The bar area seems fixed up/nicer than last I remember, making the venerable Wellfleet landmark all the more welcoming for relaxing with beers and the standard bar fare. Also solid for breakfasts and Tuesday's "Mexican Night"! You can count on The LIghthouse!

When I visit Wellfleet, I usually meet some of my local friends there on Monday nights. The staff fills your order and leaves you to socialize. They keep accurate tabs, so there is never any doubt as to what you owe. I've also had lunch there, and it's good old burgers, fries, and other all American goodies.

We have been here for their Mexican nights (Thursdays) but went when they happened to have lobster dinners on a special. These were 1 1/2 pounders and they were super fresh and tender. These were the best lobster dinners we had all summer!

We chose this spot since it seemed a lot more laid back than restaurant across street. Lots of choices of draft beers, Menu pretty basic. Nothing very note worthy but served its purpose by offering a contrast to other restaurants
