Maybe it's the items we selected. We chose to eat here thinking that the food would at least be fresh, since this is a fish market as well as a restaurant; but the food was horrible and way overpriced for what it was. We ordered the seared ahi tuna with seaweed salad for appetizer. We got a dull, grayish piece... More

We pride our selves on fresh well prepared product. When told about a problem our server or manager are supposed to react quickly and replace it or take it off the bill. We appologize for your disappointment. This will be discussed with the crew. More

Stopped for a cup of clam chowder...Mostly soupy...very few clams or potatoes. Flavor not good. Very small place. Didn't appear to be that clean. Big disappointment. Will never return. Not good value.

My husband sent back the clam chowder and the chef came out and apologized. The server took it off our bill. I had fish tacos and while edible, they were the worst fish tacos that I have ever had -- cajun seasoning, corn salsa, no avocado. It was the only bad meal that we got on the Cape during a... More

I got the Wellfleet Fisherman's Stew and it was very mediocre. The description says "in a spicy saffron seafood broth". Not only was it not spicy, it needed any seasoning such as salt and pepper. Saffron is in the description but why was the broth so clear then? My wife got the pan-roasted salmon which came with a sesame soy... More

We both started with a mug of clam chowder; which was notable by the almost total lack of clams in it. It would have made a nice potato chowder (with a clam stock base). The manager mentioned that they had the chowder made up for them - it was not made by the Catch of The Day. He knew that... More

We stopped at the Catch of the Day for a bite to eat after a long day. The server, Wendy was very nice and polite. We order our meal and noticed an older woman eating alone. We would have invited her to eat with us for conversation but she was already half way through her meal. Instead we paid her... More

Still undiscovered by many tourists, Catch of the Day is one of the best seafood restaurants in Wellfleet. Right across from Marconi Beach, it is nestled away in small, clapboard building with a small front dining room and larger open-air porch. Excellent fresh fish menu with an a number of choices that are very tasty boiled, broiled, grilled or fried.... More

We decided to give them a try since they're owned by the same folks who own Van Rensselaer's, which we love. The atmosphere is more casual, with customers in and out purchasing seafood to cook at home. The menu is extensive and includes twin sliders (lobster, seafood cake, cowboy and pulled pork), rawbar, and all the expected local seafood offerings,... More

Visited last Friday for dinner. Food was good. I had the fish tacos which came with a delicious aioli. My husband asked to switch grilled salmon with blackened salmon. When the bill came we were up charged even though both were on the menu only with different sides for the same price! When we asked the waitress she explained she... More
