I wish I had something nice to say about Cooke's, but that's a hard one. It's conveniently located and has lots of seating - that's about it. The food is just so-so, but if you like your seafood and burger that way, by all means visit this restaurant. The prices for what you get are outrageous. There are so many... More

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

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
