Good bar food. Drinks are worth it. Famous history and worth reading about it on the menu. Very good music and noisy. We had a blast. One last thing: don't forget to buy a t shirt

It's the whole experience of the beach and a restaurant/bar overlooking the beautiful Ocean atop a big cliff. The food is very good, but expect a wait (worth it though) for a table.

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
