This place is right next to the ocean. We got there a little late but customers can walk down a steep bank to the beach while waiting or just to look around. The restaurant is beach casual, with an indoor bar, and a deck bar...More

You have to remain flexible at the Beachcomber. The wait for a table can be daunting - they quoted 90 minutes today - but there is a new alternative. A recently added canopy over a take out window is more than sufficient if you don't...More

The view is awesome. My family had a ball running up and down the dunes while waiting for a table. The food was actually pretty good but the place itself is pretty dirty. Not a bad place to have a shot and a beer but...More

Parking is $20. Whether you park a mile away and are shuttled in (no charge for the shuttle, which was a highlight for us!) or if you are lucky enough to park by the restaurant. The shuttle driver did a great job, music was loud...More

This place offers great food, an outstanding raw bar and fabulous cocktails. It's the only bar on the beach in the outer cape. The only drawbacks are the parking and the waiting in line to get in.

My husband remembered the Beachcomber from his childhood, so when we got the opportunity to go to Ptown, this was on his "must do" list. We made the mistake of going on a beautiful sunny Saturday evening so when we got there, there was a...More

This spot is right on the beach. We were seated inside immediately, while there was a 30 minute wait for outside tables at lunch time. Burgers were tasty and came with lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles and a nice side of fries. Service was very quick...More

Beachcomber is situated on the cliff overlooking the ocean. You can park nearby, spend the day at the beach, then hit the Beachcomber for cocktails and dinner while still in your bathing suit. World famous Beachcomber hats, clothes available along with fresh oysters, fried everything...More

Again and again we return for the generous portions and the atmosphere of this busy beach side restaurant. Don't expect waterfront elegance for you won't find it there. Do expect resin tables and chairs, delicious food and drinks in plastic cups. I had the fried...More

We arrived around 11 mid-week and we parked to the rear of the restaurant and there was a lot of parking spaces available. It will cost you $20, but you get a voucher worth $20 for food or merchandise. You need a parking... More

We arrived at 3pm and it was almost full. This is a popular beach so beach goers arrive in the AM and stay for happy hour.
