The Lighthouse Restaurant is an old reliable lunch stop when I travel through Wellfleet. There are quite a few good dining choices in this town, but this is a place in which I'm always comfortable and can count on a good meal and an interesting...More

Enjoyed lunch here (seafood reubens) in this quaint, rustic venue. The bar area seems fixed up/nicer than last I remember, making the venerable Wellfleet landmark all the more welcoming for relaxing with beers and the standard bar fare. Also solid for breakfasts and Tuesday's "Mexican...More

When I visit Wellfleet, I usually meet some of my local friends there on Monday nights. The staff fills your order and leaves you to socialize. They keep accurate tabs, so there is never any doubt as to what you owe. I've also had lunch...More

We have been here for their Mexican nights (Thursdays) but went when they happened to have lobster dinners on a special. These were 1 1/2 pounders and they were super fresh and tender. These were the best lobster dinners we had all summer!

We chose this spot since it seemed a lot more laid back than restaurant across street. Lots of choices of draft beers, Menu pretty basic. Nothing very note worthy but served its purpose by offering a contrast to other restaurants

The fried fish and clams was not good at all. The service was great and everyone was friendly but the food was not great even tough the fish was fresh.

Was there for lunch and restaurant offers typical bar food with burgers, salads, seafood and kids' menu. Lots of different beers on tap as well. Generally busy for lunch and waits could get long on weekends.

Very disappointed. Our hearts were broken inside with the terrible quality of the food and again our hearts broken when we came outside and observed a packed house at a restaurant across from the Lighthouse that we somehow missed. Husband had Prime Rib. Looked like...More
