Family of five visit to the adjacent Wellfleet beach (steep ramp access to sandy beach with lots of seals). The restaurant has a large free parking area that can get very busy. Good location for a casual lunch with ample fried seafood and salad options....More

Had streamers & crab cakes. Food was good. This place needs some plumbing updates. No dress code. Anything goes.

What a great place! This sits at the top of Cahoon Hollow Beach and is very popular with couples and a younger crowd. (That may have to do with the brutal 75 foot sand dune that you have to climb down to get to the...More
