We went on a thursday for dinner which happens to be their Mexican Night. We ordered a seafood special which was very good. Although this is a pub type of place, the tables are OK for families with kids.

Service is pretty quick, the restaurant is open early and closes late, and is more moderately priced than other options in Wellfleet. You can show up with a large party, get seats, and even get everyone's order correctly. The food is basic eats and just ok, despite its attempts to vary the menu with Mexican night. Stick to burgers, sandwiches,... More

We had parked in the 2 hour lot behind town hall. The replica of the Nauset Light and the banner announcing 20 draft beers and a musical event made the restaurant look appealing from across the street, but appearances can be deceiving. As soon as we sat down I noticed a gob of something sticky on the end of the... More

Went to Lighthouse for a vacation breakfast on 8/8 - not bothered by the hour wait except that staff was sweeping the outside and cleaning the entrance with no apparent concern for the waiting patrons. We were in his way I guess. When breakfast came obviously burned toast ( one slice with an $12 omelette) was presented. Ham in the... More

I had scrambled eggs, bacon, and toast here. It seemed heavy with grease. It could be that I came later in the morning and the grill was not clean, I'm not sure. I think things could have been fresher. The Lighthouse was known for its breakfast so this could have just been an off morning.

Scrambled eggs good as well as coffee but my side of fruit was warm and mushy. Strawberries and blueberries. The home fries were incredibly greasy and I thought inedible. The bacon as well tasted like it was cooked then allowed to sit in the grease. So, some good, some bad....service okay.

This is a great place for breakfast or lunch in the downtown of Wellfleet. Do try if in town. The area and the place is very scenic.

We stopped here for lunch while exploring Wellfleet. My husband had the oysters as an appetizer and raved about them. I had the spinach and goat cheese salad and it was delicious. They also have a great beer selection we did not sample because it was lunchtime. Waitstaff was friendly and helpful. Kids meals are available.

Was a very quiet day when we went. We were the only ones there around 1 pm. The server was super pleasant. We just had wine and some dessert. The ambience is very dated and the place needs an overhaul to attract any large groups or functions. Nice view though. So in need of some marketing and renovation, but a... More
