While on vacation in the cape, we always visit Mattakeese and have learned to make a reservation. Without one you will wait 30+minutes...With a reservation you'll wait 5-10 minutes. We made a reservation, we get there and within 10 minutes were seated. Waitress was knowledgeable and super friendly. Orders placed promptly and food arrived in about 20 minutes and this... More

Great view of harbor, service was extremely fast and friendly, and food was excellent. We especially liked the key lime pie desert.

We have been vacationing in the Hyannis area for the past 6 summers, but never found this gem until this season. The restaurant sits right on the Barnstable Harbor so you can watch the boats come and go as you eat. If you have a boat, it looks like you can dock outside the restaurant and go in to eat.......

We decided to celebrate our anniversary at this restaurant so we made reservations for a water side table---when we arrived we sat in the waiting area which was so hot (no a/c) for 20 minutes until our table was ready. They gave us the very last table in the very back of the room which was barely over the water,... More

My wife and I had one of our best dinners here. We even went back another night. Very busy over the weekend but this restaurant is well prepared with complimentary valet service and an excellent kitchen and wait staff. The views of the harbor are great. Prices very reasonable and very good portion size. We will go to this restaurant... More

Loved the atmosphere and the view. The clam chowder was one of the best I've ever had! The potatoes were chopped small and didn't overpower the texture or taste of the fresh clams. The beer was cold and they had a good selection as well.

This popular spot is right on the water and is great for enjoying the view and sunsets. The food is fine, just not spectacular.

We were recommended this restaurant and booked a verandah table. The table was great, right over the small harbour with sunset views, which put us in a good mood straight off. The food was also excellent, both the striped bass and a swordfish. They came with fresh veggies, always a plus for us. Another advantage is valet parking in their... More

What's happening to service at restaurants on Cape Cod? Are owners trying to save money by not hiring enough servers? Are they hiring whoever they can get and then not training them? ... We've had a couple of bad experiences this trip -- although exceptions with excellent service were Dolphin and Red Pheasant -- but the one at Mattakeese Wharf... More
