Description: Located on Cape Cod. The evolution of the Brewster Fish House from retail fish market to an acclaimed seafood restaurant has been remarkable. A fiercely loyal clientele reflects the quality of food and service. Rated in the "top 50" by Zagat, "this unassuming cottage garners raves for its outstanding contemporary menu." We are happy to accommodate vegetarian and celiac diets.

We ate here twice while staying nearby- lunch and dinner. Both times the food was very good, but somehow left us a little disappointed. My partner was disappointed that his Fish and Chips lunch included only one piece of fish and my Cape Cod Reuben was not as generous as what I have been served elsewhere. Lunch for 3 ran over $100 ( just one glass of wine) and we were charged $5.50 for ice tea! Dinner was very pleasant but I was again disappointed by my entree- lobster poached in better. The lobster meat was too mushy and didn't have a strong enough flavor. Mynoartner had a ribeye which was good butvagain the portion was small. They were accommodating in substituting the side dishes with the lobster so that I could avoid the ratatouille with bacon. All of the dishes were beautifully presented and the servers were very attentive. Thus is a smaller restaurant and during the summer and on weekends there is often a wait as they do not take reservations. Maybe we chose the wrong dishes, but for us the experiences did not quite live up to the hype and itbis very expensive.

Don't be fooled by the name of the restaurant. This little place showcases elegant dishes of food that rivals any high priced New York restaurant. The chefs are true artists. Don't expect burgers and fries. This place has high quality dishes. The wait staff are proficient and professional. The food is amazing. My friends who just came back from Italy said this was the best food they have ever had. The salmon was cooked to perfection.
If you are visiting Brewster please do yourself a favor and enjoy dinner at this restaurant. You will always remember this place for having your favorite meal.

After being ignored/disappointed at another local establishment, we decided to do a quick google search and came across Brewster Fish House. Instead of waiting to be acknowledged at the other place, we quickly got in the car at 8pm and drove here for dinner. We enjoy sitting at the bar and were lucky enough to have two seats open up as soon as we arrived.

John (I believe was his name) served us all night and provided the BEST dining experience we've had down the Cape. We had a few rounds of oysters and some absolutely incredible main dishes. We were truly impressed with what a great operation they run (despite no reservations) and will be telling our friends/family to come here for nice dinners in the future. Everything from the wine suggestions, to the knowledge of the daily oysters was perfect. So glad to have had our night turned around!

I also liked the simplicity of the menu, but how it catered to all diets. Impressive wine, spirits, and and beer selection as well. Offered four oyster selections that day and all were great (we had three rounds of various mixtures).

We showed up without a reservation and it was over an hour wait, but the food was worth the wait (and we passed the time with great cocktails). Everything we ordered was great and the service was good to. I had the Tuna with Udon noobles and it was delicious.

Pro Tip: make a reservation ahead of time :)
