Historically Speaking…

The Wicked Oyster, established in 2004, is located at 50 Main Street in the town of Wellfleet on Cape Cod.

The original structure houses our main dining room and it dates back to 1750. The building was floated across the bay from Billingsgate Island, which is now a mere sandbar visible only at low tide.

Through the years additions were made to the building as it went from residence to restaurant. There were quite a few popular restaurants here, but one of the most beloved was, undeniably, the Wellfleet Oyster House.

While adding our own touch to the building we are careful to honor its rich history and keep the comfort of a Cape Cod home.

Atmosphere and Character…

The restaurant’s exterior is a weathered shell, in which lies a buzzing life filled with delectable flavors and the simple unassuming elegance of a pearl.

Dawn brings the smell of freshly brewed Beanstock coffee from our coffee bar. Daylight streams through the windows of the enclosed porch where locals and visitors alike enjoy their morning coffee and a deliciously fresh breakfast!

In the evening, lights are dimmed and candles are lit for a more sophisticated feel. The bustling bar and dining rooms come alive! From dawn to dusk, The Wicked Oyster offers its patrons the comfort and sensory experience of Cape Cod, in all of its seasons.


Spaces can be found in the front of the restaurant and at the back. When the Berta Walker Gallery is closed, you may also park in those front spaces.

Though we have expanded our parking area at the back of the building, it does still fill up quickly. So, when planning your visit, consider carpooling if possible…it’s good for the environment AND the other customers.

*Please do NOT park at The Well or at the property on the corner of Route 6. Thank you!


Adorning the walls of The Wicked Oyster are works by local artists, both past and present. These amazing pieces are courtesy of our neighbor at 40 Main Street… The Berta Walker Gallery-Wellfleet.

Virtually all of the art you see on the walls of the wicked oyster are available for purchase…and if a particular artist strikes your fancy, just walk next door to see more!

The Berta Walker Gallery Wellfleet has regular hours from Memorial Day to Labor Day and is open year-round often by chance, always by appointment.

If you are planning a day trip to Provincetown, don’t miss visiting Berta Walker’s “flagship” gallery at 208 Bradford Street.

"We have been coming to this place for years as we make our way down island after a visit to P'town. The food is good and fresh and the service is prompt and efficient." - Yelp Reviewer
