Eastham annual vacation

daver | Sep 7, 2006 11:22 PM

Have been going up to Eastham the week before labor day for over 20 years. We dont skew too much each year anymore but our eating were-On Friday opening night we drove to Captain Parkers in west Yarmouth-Their clam chowder is incredible but the rest of the food is just good.Saturday night a crew of about25 went to Arnolds. I think it is a terrific clam shack.Sunday night a bunch of us did take out lobsters from the Eastham lobster pool. This is the way to go. The lobsters are cooked and cheaper on takeout.I nailed one at 3.75 lbs.Tuesday night my wifes birthday dinner at Pates in Chatham. I enjoy their prime rib,my wife the lamb chops. Appetizers of escargot and coquilles st jacque.Wonderful. Wednesday and Sunday Finely Jps.We love this place(it has been remodeled this year but the menu is the same)Great waitress.Thursday up to the beachcomber in wellfleet from the beach for a great group happy hour-Later to dinner at the Eastham Lobster pool. Good, not great but a wonderful waitress who took care of an adult table of 8 and a kids table of 8.Friday back to Arnolds for fried stuff. Saturday night at Winslows tavern in Wellfleet. We were a group of 15 and had our own room. Consensus was that we enjoyed it. Had 2 lunches at Captain Parkers,one at the Kream n Kone which I have always wanted to try,and land ho. Also 5 beach lunches from the box lunch. Also some take out from the Friendly Fisherman which makes great fried clams and lobster rolls. While I did enjoy Kream n Kone and that they give you the option to pick your combination choices of fried stuff (I wish Arnolds did this) the food is better at Arnolds and the Friendly Fisherman. I was sad too see that the owner of the Friendy fisherman who I say hello to each year passed away in early July.Hope others enjoy their Cape visits as much as us- Also curious what some of everyones favorite Box luch sandwiches are
