An annual stop for us to meet with other friends that are also vacationing on the Cape. The oysters are really good and reasonable, the food better than average, and a view that is great. The kids saw seals and claimed to see a shark go after one. True or not, The Beachcomber provides memories for all.

This is much more than the beach shack it appears to be. The raw bar on the deck serves amazing oysters, clams, and (don't miss it) seared (basically raw) sesame tuna. It may be the best tuna we've ever had.

Great spot. Terrific employees. Enjoyable drink choices. Pretty good food. A perfect place to go for lunch by the beach. And a really hot nightspot.

This was our favorite place to eat on our most recent vacation. The view was amazing and the food and atmosphere was perfect and very family friendly. We had no cell reception. The Grizzlied gentleman at the raw bar just felt extra authentic. Fresh, delicious food. And the mixed drinks were all outstanding.

Great place to end your beach visit with one of their many house cocktails and the raw bar! The other food we've had here is good, but typical, bar food from a sea side venue. By all means worth a visit!

Such a fun beach bar atmosphere! whenever I am in the area I always stop here for a drink and to buy a tee shirt or sweatshirt. I love everything about this place. Great fried scallop plate! It's huge and I get it once a year and it's totally worth the calories lol

After battling the waves of the Atlantic ocean for most of the day, the Beachcomber is the place to have a few drinks, a few oysters, and relax. Wife loves the fresh shucked oysters (not the vodka ones!) and kids love the greasy food. The crowd watching is also fun as it ranges from very traditional Boston/New England to people... More

The Beachcomber is one of our favorite bar/restaurants on the Cape. It's a throwback for sure. If your looking for a fancy place, this isn't it. But the drinks are great, the food is good, and the location is killer. Gotta have the tee shirt, for sure.

Getting a seat at the outdoor bar is not easy and who wants to sit inside? It's a really cool location and beach which is the attraction. There is a lot of seal watching from the beach below.

Love that there is a great place to eat and drink when we need a break from the beach. Bartenders and waitstaff are excellent and the food is really good. We'd never been here before and we have visited 3 times in the last month! That's how much we love it!
