Went to Lighthouse for a vacation breakfast on 8/8 - not bothered by the hour wait except that staff was sweeping the outside and cleaning the entrance with no apparent concern for the waiting patrons. We were in his way I guess. When breakfast came obviously burned toast ( one slice with an $12 omelette) was presented. Ham in the... More

I had scrambled eggs, bacon, and toast here. It seemed heavy with grease. It could be that I came later in the morning and the grill was not clean, I'm not sure. I think things could have been fresher. The Lighthouse was known for its breakfast so this could have just been an off morning.

Scrambled eggs good as well as coffee but my side of fruit was warm and mushy. Strawberries and blueberries. The home fries were incredibly greasy and I thought inedible. The bacon as well tasted like it was cooked then allowed to sit in the grease. So, some good, some bad....service okay.

This is a great place for breakfast or lunch in the downtown of Wellfleet. Do try if in town. The area and the place is very scenic.

We stopped here for lunch while exploring Wellfleet. My husband had the oysters as an appetizer and raved about them. I had the spinach and goat cheese salad and it was delicious. They also have a great beer selection we did not sample because it was lunchtime. Waitstaff was friendly and helpful. Kids meals are available.

Was a very quiet day when we went. We were the only ones there around 1 pm. The server was super pleasant. We just had wine and some dessert. The ambience is very dated and the place needs an overhaul to attract any large groups or functions. Nice view though. So in need of some marketing and renovation, but a... More

Stopped here for lunch on the way home from a brief visit to the Cape. We had drinks and sandwiches, very good! Our server was friendly and efficient. Will try it again.

Arrived early to have dinner and to get a good seat at the bar for the USA vs Germany Women's World Cup semi-final soccer game. We asked the bartender, Jody (the owner’s daughter) if she would put the pre-game show on. With utter disdain she said; "No, I hate soccer. I'm willing to put it on at 7 but not... More

We went for lunch... there were only two other people in the restaurant, which should have given us a clue to go somewhere else! But we didn't! We had two hamburgers, two soups and a salad. The burgers were both ordered medium. One came rare and the other so well done it couldn't be cut! The soup was the only... More
