Good Food, Great Bar

Food was good. Mostly seafood. Typical for a marina restaurant. Jimmy the bartender was great. Poured a good drink!

We have eaten here several times when visiting family in Barnstable. The restaurant has excellent fish. The view out onto the ocean is stunning at sunset. The staff have always been attentive and the meals always excellent. They are only open in season.

we went to dinner at the Mattakeese Wharf this past season and I had the most wonderful Lobster Dinner! It is possible to mess that up you know, but it was really good and I enjoyed every last bite!

My daughter in law raved about the lobster roll, the best she has ever had she claims. Fresh salads, good drinks, great view of the harbor and boats. Totally fun place to eat.

The Wharf was really pretty and the views were nice to sit outside while eating. Many varieties of fish entrees were available. The flounder was my favorite and my husband loved the blue fish.

Party of 4 had four different menu items plus an appetizer of oysters on the half-shell. The drinks were excellent and the appetizer and every entree were plate-licking good. Our waitress took time to socialize with us as she knew where we were from. She provided excellent service throughout the mealtime. While they are only open from April to October,... More

This is one or our favorite restaurants in the area. We always dine here at least once during our stay. It is noted for its wonderful sunset views, but this time we arrived too late, you can't stop the sun! As usual the entre selections are always excellent.
