Brewster Fish House Review

There is nothing ordinary about the menu here: the sweet perfection of just-off-the-boat scallops is enhanced by oyster mushrooms, pancetta, and a chive béarnaise. Look for other favorites like pan-seared Long Island duck. For lunch, the fried oyster po'boy sandwich is a real treat. It can be noisy and it's always crowded in summer, but it's worth the wait. The wine list includes a flavorful selection of by-the-glass offerings. Note: The lack of booster seats and high chairs signals that this is not the place to bring small children.

    Rude Service

    This review should point out that children are NOT welcome at this restaurant. When my family and I walked through the door this past Saturday night, the woman who was hostessing snottily said, "We don't DO high chairs here." My well-behaved year-old daughter was better dressed than most of the patrons in the restaurant, but we clearly were not welcome. I'm very conscious about bringing a child to a restaurant -- I'm mindful of other guests -- but this was early in the evening (5:30 p.m.), and the Fish House is certainly not a five star restaurant. Not to mention that at the restaurant we ended up going to, the gentleman at the table next to ours complimented my daughter on her good behavior (after he told us he was a retired pediatrician). I really think the Brewster Fish House needs to keep up with the times -- people with kids are in abundance, and they're willing to spend money on a meal. I won't be coming here again -- with children or without.

    Wonderful seafood, very good service

    The food here is really excellent. You can't go wrong with anything. I had a trio of crab appetizer that was so wonderful. The other reviewer was just angry--it is tight for kids, better for adults and older kids. I've been many times and always treated very well.

    Long wait...for what?

    This place has a very limited menu but prices that don't come close to matching the value of what you get. The selection of food is reasonable but not very diverse and the quality and portions are limited. The personnel seem like they are doing you a favor to seat you and, on at least 2 occasions, I have had the feeling that they were rushing me out. A word of caution...if you are in a party of more than 4 you can expect excessivly long waits for a table that will seat you all since they mainly have tables that seat only 4. We have stopped wasting our time and money going there.

    Brewster Fish House Review

    I stumbled upon this little gem while working on the Cape off and on, decided to try it because the parking lot was always full. What a treat! This restaurant is EXACTLY what I love - funky surroundings, delicious food (serious foodies in the kitchen), great service, fair prices, and NO CHILDREN. I never, ever miss the chance to eat here!

    Brewster Fish House Review

    Good food, but not much else. No changes allowed to anything on menu , arrogant staff, rushed meal. Simple request to take home a desert after our $100+ meal , refused. Considered takeout. No Amex Cards accepted. Not a fun place. Used to be much more enjoyable , things have changed a lot.
