What Wellfleet Restaurants Are Open This Fall?

Today I surveyed local restaurants and their post-Labor-Day plans. This was a very depressing enterprise for someone who hopes Wellfleet can have more going on in the shoulder-season. It became quickly apparent that dining out on Mondays & Tuesdays will be challenging this fall … Lots of restaurants in Provincetown do stay open though. Guests be forewarned! Make reservations if you want dinner on Mondays and Tuesdays! Otherwise, there's great pizza at the Red Barn in Eastham, on the way to Wellfleet. I will research other local restaurants, but for now, this list will have to do.

Beachcomber is closed as of Labor Day

Blackfish closes end October. Off 9/9/ & 910, otherwise open.

Bookstore, YR. Closed Tuesdays.

Catch of the Day closes October 25.

D’Italia’s, YR. Closed Mondays.

Wellfleet Town Pizza is open year round but closed Monday and Tuesday.

Winslow’s Tavern closes Oct. 18. Monday is day off.

Whitman House closes Dec. 12.

Wicked Oyster and The Bookstore both close for a month or two in the winter, but I have not been able to pinpoint the exact dates yet. This is most dismal! Last year they closed at the same time and the Town Administrator, new to Wellfleet, had trouble finding dinner. Let's hope this year they confer before deciding when to take a vacation. I look forward to the opening of our new French bistro. Bet I'm not the only one who's eager to dine there!

Since it is Tuesday, can you guess where Sven and I are heading for dinner?
