Our large group of more than 40 people converged on Mattakeese Wharf for a lobster dinner. We were not disappointed! It was a delicious meal. They served a nice green salad with some amazing sour dough rolls first. Then came the nice sized lobster, drawn butter, mixed vegetables not overcooked and roasted potatoes. A nice brownie with ice cream for... More

Four of us chose Mattakeese Wharf for lunch because we wanted a water view, and what a view they have, across Barnstable Harbor, over the dunes, and out to Sandy Neck. Gorgeous! All four of us heard the special and said, "That sounds fabulous!" - baked haddock topped with panko, cranberries, and pinenuts. We all shortly joined the Clean Plate... More

This is a large restaurant so be picky about your seating so you don't have to be by the kitchen or by the bar...the decor is seaside restaurant, nothing imaginative. The food is variable--go fresh catch as opposed to the scallops which my husband had--they were disappointing But the rolls--wonderful yeasty morsels that remind you of the school cafeteria!

We've eaten at Mattakeese Wharf off and on over the past 40 years and we've never been disappointed. We stopped for lunch on the Wednesday after Labor Day for a couple of sandwiches and beer. The food was fresh and well-cooked. We will return.

We ate lunch here after a whale watching tour and at the recommendation of the inn keepers where we are staying. Calamari was soggy, marinara sauce tasted like jarred (jarred is actually better) French fries were less tasty than what a bag of grocery store frozen bag fries taste like. Clam chowder was fine, but you can get clam chowder... More

We have been going to Mattakeese for many years, and it's still as good as ever. It's right on Barnstable Harbor, and the main dining room has ceiling fans, which give it a calm and slightly old-fashioned feel. The bar has a TV with a game on and live music in the evening. Three out of the four of us... More

The food was decent and the view was nice but the service was bad and the place could be a little cleaner. We waited awhile for the waitress to take our drink order and when she brought the food, she never asked if we needed anything or came back to see how our food was. I had to flag her... More

This is a wonderful cape-coddy setting. Boaters tie up and dine. It is a busy end of Barnstable on the bay. Food is average with large selection and great seating. As we left the restaurant, the valet parking attendants were putting cones to block the parking spaces so they could force patrons into valet parking. Seems money grubbing.

We went to the Mattakeese Wharf and really enjoyed it. The restaurant was nice, the location on the water lovely and the food was fresh and very tasty. Service was good -- we enjoyed our lunch here.

Have gone here many times over the summer, have never been disappointed. Food - excellent. Service as well. A must stop for everyone. Good idea to call for reservations.
