We ate there often; it was comfortable and nicely decorated; the food was fabulous every time and the staff people were all so friendly and helpful; great prices too! Don't miss it!

Maybe it's the items we selected. We chose to eat here thinking that the food would at least be fresh, since this is a fish market as well as a restaurant; but the food was horrible and way overpriced for what it was. We ordered...More

We pride our selves on fresh well prepared product. When told about a problem our server or manager are supposed to react quickly and replace it or take it off the bill. We appologize for your disappointment. This will be discussed with the crew.

Stopped for a cup of clam chowder...Mostly soupy...very few clams or potatoes. Flavor not good. Very small place. Didn't appear to be that clean. Big disappointment. Will never return. Not good value.

My husband sent back the clam chowder and the chef came out and apologized. The server took it off our bill. I had fish tacos and while edible, they were the worst fish tacos that I have ever had -- cajun seasoning, corn salsa, no...More

The chowder issue has been resolved, thank you for letting us know. Chef and I are talking about possibly adding avocado to the menu next year as we do not carry any currently

I got the Wellfleet Fisherman's Stew and it was very mediocre. The description says "in a spicy saffron seafood broth". Not only was it not spicy, it needed any seasoning such as salt and pepper. Saffron is in the description but why was the broth...More

We both started with a mug of clam chowder; which was notable by the almost total lack of clams in it. It would have made a nice potato chowder (with a clam stock base). The manager mentioned that they had the chowder made up for...More

Still undiscovered by many tourists, Catch of the Day is one of the best seafood restaurants in Wellfleet. Right across from Marconi Beach, it is nestled away in small, clapboard building with a small front dining room and larger open-air porch. Excellent fresh fish menu...More

We decided to give them a try since they're owned by the same folks who own Van Rensselaer's, which we love. The atmosphere is more casual, with customers in and out purchasing seafood to cook at home. The menu is extensive and includes twin sliders...More
