Wicked Oyster
Address: 50 Main St, Wellfleet Cape Cod, Massachusetts
Phone: 508-349-3455
Wicked Oyster offers upscale sophisticated renderings of traditional surf and turf featuring fresh ingredients of the highest quality. This casual restaurant offers indoor and outdoor dining, and is open all year long. Try the grilled pork chop with smashed potatoes seasoned with mustard, brussels sprouts with bacon, apple compote, and a cider demi-glaze or the pan roasted catch of the day over a light cream broth with littlenecks, leeks, bacon, and fingerling potatoes. Bring the family out for a nice dinner, or your significant other for an impressive meal.

Mac's Shack
Address: 91 Commercial St, Wellfleet, MA
Phone: 508-349-6333
Don't be fooled by the name, the word shack is used here very loosely. If I were to sum up this restaurant in a single sentence I would say that Mac's Shack offers family friendly upscale dining. Although there can be a long wait in summer, the wait won't be too long if you arrrive on the early side for dinner. Expect to wait at least a half hour or more if you arrive around 7 PM. Nevertheless, this restaurant is so well planned that the wait is mitigated by comfortable outdoor benches and seating at the bar and raw bar where diners can whet their appetities on Mac's fine selection of fresh raw oysters, sushi, and miscellaneous cooked items. Order a cocktail or a savignon blanc while you wait in a relaxed seafood nirvana with a platter of raw oysters and sushi. On a warm summer evening, there's nothing like the air coming off the water while enjoying fresh seafood. Mac's is a personal favorite and a highlight of every trip our family makes to Wellfleet. For dinner, consider the lobster and the Clam Chowder or if it's on the menu the delicious lobster ravioli. There are two sizes available and I found the smaller size to be reasonable for a single person although the larger size is great if you're enjoying a family style dinner.

Mac's Seafood
Address: 265 Commercial Street Wellfleet Cape Cod MA 02667
Phone: 508-349-9611
Under same ownership as Mac's Shack, this really is the clam shack you would expect for an establishment named Mac's Shack. This is the shack. The food is awesome. Located on the waterfront, expect to get a hearty breeze off the ocean. It's a great location but at times can be a bit windy but welcome in the summer. This location is a takeout spot with outdoor seating and a seafood market featuring locally caught bluefish and other seafood including very reasonably priced clams, oysters and smoked fish. Their lobster salad roll and cole slaw lived up to high standards of what you would expect from a good New England fish shack. The lobster bisque was notably delicious because the lobster flavor came through very well within the creamy sauce. The raw oysters were fantastic. If you appreciate the New England clam shack experience in all of it's to-go unpretentiousness as well as hyper-fresh seafood then Mac's Seafood is the place to go not only in Wellfleet but in all of Cape Cod.

Wellfleet Town Pizza
Address: 55 Commercial Street - Wellfleet, Cape Cod MA 02667
Phone: 508-349-6400
Award winning thin crust pizza featuring house specials like the Bulldog (all meat) and the "Silence of the Clams" (clams, olive, oil, and garlic). They also feature an extensive menu of vegetarian pizzas. If you're lactose intolerant or allergic to cows milk then try "Picasso's Goat" which is a white pizza made of Baby Spinach, Roasted Red Peppers, Eggplant, Pesto, Goat Cheese. You can also order grinders and salads. Restaurant is open all year long. It's small inside so you may want to call ahead or take out.
