Wellfleet/Eastham in November?

I am heading out to Eastham tonight for the weekend and wondering what is open at this time of the year. We love Mac's, but I am fairly sure that is closed. We also love the boulangerie. What is open in the area for breakfast/lunch/dinner? We had a terrible time finding somewhere to stay this weekend and are hoping for more success with restaurants!

    Maybe a bit late but, Blackfish yes. If in Chatham the Impudent Oyster for Cataplana, Mussels Isabella, the chowder and of course the oysters.Oh, and if you're there for lunch you must have the scallop roll (they don't have it at dinner) THE best. In Wellfleet there isn't much open, but The Lighthouse is a very comfortable place with many locals, the bar food is good and the oysters are great. Also the Bookstore (not sure if they're still open,they were two weeks ago),
    I would only recco the clams sauteed in garlic and wine (not sure what they call it). Hope you have a great visit and get back to us with your review.

      PB Boulangerie is open for breakfast treats. Blackfish in Truro is open for dinner until Dec. 18th. That would be my absolute pick. I had an amazing "last date" with my former dining soul mate. Won't likely go back again but it was memorable. Would you venture to P Town? Victors or Jimmy's Hideaway would be my choices.

        Thanks. We have never been to Blackfish but will check it out online. We probably won't venture into PTown for this trip but could possible head the other way towards Chatham. It seems like there might be more going on in that direction.

          I second Blackfish. In Orleans there is Abba, and Mahoney's.

            Not a fan of Mahoney's. Much prefer The Beacon Room (sit in the lounge though). Chatham will have many choices, The Squire for super casual, or Impudent Oyster for a bit more upscale. Hangar B by the airport is a must for B'Fast.

              Good rec on the Beacon Room, CCG. I know..you and phelana are not big fans of Mahoney's. I love the Impudent Oyster. Squire, too, for that matter (for casual).

              Oh, and I guess PB Boulangerie is still open for dinner because my friend worked there last night (it's Beajoulais Noveau season!).

                JP's on RT 6 in Wellfleet is still open weekends.Try the Lighthouse downtown in Wellfleet for breakfast.........great blueberry pancakes. Also Wicked Oyster in Wellfleet is open weekends.

              We went to Blackfish for dinner last night and loved it! Everything seemed really fresh and we enjoyed our appetizers and entrees. My only complaint would be with timing. Our entrees came out immediately after we had put down our salad forks and I was hoping for a few minutes to digest. Other than that though, everything was great!

                    I think that when w went back we asked ti have things slowed a bit ( not mid summer) and they did so.
