Winslow's Tavern is not a tavern. The restaurant is in what is more or less downtown Wellfleet. When we were there the wait was long, but that was not a problem because we could browse nearby shops while we waited. The food, service, and ambiance were all very good. We enjoyed it a lot. Winslow's Tavern is owned by the... More

Family reunions with the twinkly lights and the grape arbor on there terrace at the back of the restaurant make for magical evenings. Great food too. Wish they would share their gazpacho recipe.

Winslow's tavern has consistently good seafood with a nice wine selection at reasonable prices. They have outdoor dining under the trees to be enjoyed when weather permits. When the weather isn't so nice, there are tables upstairs around the bar that are nice to dine at. We've been eating here for several years and have yet to be disappointed.

We visited Wellfleet, MA for the Oysterfest 2016 and stopped in here for one of their special bloody mary. Not only were the drinks good but the music in the garden was very entertaining. Although the establishment was crowded there is plenty of room inside and outside to move around. We stayed outside in the garden and enjoyed the band.... More

Three of us had dinner at the Winslow Tavern on a Sat. night in September. We began with interesting drinks served an a very good waitress. I had a wonderful pear-apple salad and crab cakes, along with very good key lime pie for dessert. My companions had swordfish and scallops and reported that both were perfectly looked. The restaurant is... More

We were wandering around the extremely quaint Cape Cod town of Wellfleet and our four-year old granddaughter told us in no uncertain terms that she was hungry. We were directly in front of Winslow's Tavern at the time of her announcement, crossed the street, checked out the menu and proceeded to occupy an outside table. All of us including our... More

Late Sunday lunch on a dreary fall day. Scallop roll was very good with mayo/sauce on the side. Seafood panini was good. I think an evening setting would truly bring out the atmosphere .

We were struggling on the Cape to find good food at reasonable prices and then we came here for lunch. At the end of lunch we promptly booked for dinner, it was that enjoyable.

Its Main Street location on a small hill, plus the outdoor seating make this a perfect spot for a vacation dinner. On this visit, we sat inside and each had the Lamb Sugo, which did not disappoint.

Wow! This was a great find. Large front porch with an excellent menu. There is a garden area in the back, downstairs indoor seating and a tavern upstairs that I could see myself enjoying on a rainy day or evening. Loved that the tavern is in an old Cape home.

Description
A dining experience at Winslow's begins with a warm greeting from Tracey Barry Hunt, the General Manager who oversees "the front of the house." A former documentary television producer and director, Tracey loves speaking with guests and sharing local knowledge about her favorite spots on the Cape. Winslow's menu and wine list are created by South African born Chef, Phillip Hunt, Tracey's husband. Phillip is always happy to share his passion and vast knowledge of wine with guests interested in recommendations and food pairings. On any given day Tracey and Phillip's two young sons, Hunter and Romanee (our grill and saute cooks for the 2020 season!) may also make an appearance at Winslow's to pick some herbs for Dad or entertain the staff and guests with Mom.
