The atmosphere is casual. Table are far enough apart so that you don't feel like your in your neighbor's lap. The seafood options or the Cajun dishes are very good. The prices are much lower than the same meal in Provincetown. Wait staff is pleasant...More

We went back to The Lighthouse again today, having had great breakfasts there in the past. I had the worst (dense, dry) pancakes of my life there this morning. Not going back.

Typical breakfast menu with some nicer offerings like fresh blueberry pancakes. Reminds me of a good diner. Everyone enjoyed their pretty hearty breakfast. Would eat there again. Wait staff was very friendly & helpful.

We stopped in for a light lunch and I ordered only a cup of clam chowder. It was the best I've had on the Cape yet. It was all I had, but I've be sure to go back for more.

Went here one morning for breakfast instead of the hotel. Excellent food and prices were reasonable for the amount of food they serve! Have the Bloody Mary...not as spicy as other places but enjoyable. Also try the Linguica...a Portuguese sausage.

My husband and I have eaten at the lighthouse restaurant several times. While there are many choices in beautiful Wellfleet we had chosen the Lighthouse because of convenience the first time. The soups are amazing, just like my own home made. This summer we took...More
