The experience at "The Shoe" is unusual. It is not like a regular restaurant. They rarely have menus. They have a daily blackboard usually with lobster and other Cape Cod's favorite food...It is very small and simple with a faithful bar trade and a small dining area with booths....Do not expect perfect service, but do expect good Cape Cod fare.

We read somewhere that the Wooden Shoe won Best Chowder on the Cape so we figured we had to try it. This place is walking distance from our house so why not. It is defininetely more of a bar than a restaurant, complete with a few locals hanging out at the bar. Don't get me wrong, we usually prefer "dive"... More

We arrived on time for our reservation. We were left standing i the doorway ignored for close to 15 minutes. once we were seated we were once again ignored. NO menus, not even water on the table. Staff was standing around and looking at us and appeared to be discussing us. Finally the waitress came over and said we may... More

Have passed by the Wooden Shoe many times visiting the Dennis Port area, but never tried it out until this past summer. The atmosphere is very homey, nothing fancy. But, the twin lobsters were amazing and the price was right. One waitress was pretty much running the whole room, which isn;t that big, but she did a great job. Have... More

We took our grandkids to The Wooden Shoe in July and all went well. We try to stop at "The Shoe" yearly and always enjoy this spot. I get scallops and my wife had the lobster roll which she raved about. The kids menu was limited but quite accessible to our somewhat fussy grandkids. The only negative is that that... More

Went there later one night because of the reviews. The lobster rolls were huge! I loved mine while my sister said that hers had a "funny" taste. The place is small, so try to go at an off time. there was one waitress for the whole place, but she was excellent! Cash only!

This small place is largely a bar, with great regional seafood. In particular, their lobster roll is basically an open-face roll, with a triple sized portion of Lobster in a light salad. Their NE chowder is also well done. Atmosphere is nothing special, but you can take out.

The Wooden Shoe has avery plain environment with no frills. However it offered the best lobster roll our group has ever had and that is their claim to fame. The staff were courteous and welcoming and they were efficient in putting together our order. Would definitely return.

My husband and I tried having dinner here last year we were shocked by the outside but decided to go in anyway and were more shocked by the inside and very small menu. We left because we thought it was old and dirty looking. I see from other reviews that many people think it's great and love the food they... More
