This is the very best fried seafood on the Cape, I lived here all my life and we have had many places come and go,but none of them have been as wonderful,and fulfilling as Cookes. We actually have a countdown during the beginning of the month when it will open. So if you visit the Cape in the summer you... More

Cooke's in Hyannis is open again for the season. Not only is it a great place for fried seafood and sides, such as their signature onion rings, but you can also eat super healthy here, too. Much to my surprise, in a very good way, you can now get sweet potato fries. I tasted a few from my lunch mate's... More

The fish is fresh. It is cooked correctly. It is consistently good and fairly priced. There are lots of options so it is family friendly and "fish hater" friendly

We enjoyed our lunch of grilled haddock, salmon and excellent veggies (grilled cauliflower, roasted new potatoes, cole slaw) in this modern setting. Family friendly atmosphere & prices ;-)

In looking for a good seafood restaurant with fresh seafood and made to order, we decided to come here to Cookers. While you place the order first at counter and they bring it to you on paper plates, but it was all good. The seafood platter we ordered was fresh, hot and came out quickly. Service was great and the... More

We got on the Cape at about noon. We were looking for Cape Cod Beer and a place to eat seafood. We didn't find the brewery but we did find Cooke's Seafood. We ate on the tables outside in front of the restaurant. The service was prompt and friendly. The seafood platters were very good. I would go back. It... More

They old owners must have sold Cooke's in Hyannis because the fried seafood quality has changed. Cook's Hyannis used to be hands down the best seafood around. You can imagine my surprise when I went in the other day and ordered the seafood platter and the quality as very different from before. Gone were the incredibly thin and delicate onion... More

Had broiled seafood dinners - scallops and haddock. Both very tasty, not greasy, good portions. Order at the front counter and meals brought to your table. Very clean dining area and very clean bathrooms. Must have made some changes since last year when we ate here. A very nice place to eat.

Unsure what to expect but wet night and close to our hotel so went in. Lots of choice, served at the table, a beer or glass of wine available. It was fast food and not 'fine dining' but it was good, hot and fresh. Great

Wasn't sure what to expect, because it has a "chain" look about it, and you have to order in front and they server brings your order. I wasn't expecting much - but then the fish and chips arrived! OMG! I consider myself a fried fish aficionado, and the two huge piece of fried fish were perfect! To make excellent fried... More
