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.

On the water in Barnstable, this restaurant is excellent. There was a line of people waiting for tables, so it took about ten minutes to get seated for lunch. Great view of Sandy Neck...boats, birds, nature. Waitress was friendly and helpful. Menu huge. Lots of fried offerings, but other options, too. I had the clam strips....superb! Prices moderate. Contrary to... More

Have not been here in years but decided to have lunch today. Sat at a window (open) right above the harbor and docks. The view of SANDY Neck is so great also. Watched the pleasure, fishing and whale watch boats come and go. The food was wonderful and plentiful. I had stuffed quahogs and a Cape Cod salad. Both were... More

We just came back from a wonderful dinner. We had 5 adults in our party and reservations at 6:30. We arrived early and were seated early at a window table. Chowder was very good. We ordered two baked stuffed haddock dinners, two grilled swordfish and one broiled swordfish. The fish entrees were incredible...after a summer of dinners on the cape,... More

We are at this restaurant for the first time last night and will never go there again. We were looking for a nice place to eat on the water and came across this place which we thought would be great. Boy were we wrong. We arrived a little after 6:30 and got seated right away(great). There were four adults and... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local when we said we wanted to eat lunch outside by the water. It was fine, but a little disappointing when we sat on the covered deck that was sided with closed windows and we could only look out at the beautiful sunny day. Still, the recommended lobster rolls were fresh and tasty with... More

Book a table for when you get back from the whalewatching - that way you can hopefully get a great sunset view. Good service great food, table should have been fully cleared after the lobster before bringing dessert instead of only part clearing it. So a star lost on service.

This waterside restaurant affords any diner a view of the harbor from any table. The four of us ordered the same sandwich, THE SHRIMP BLT. What a perfect seaside choice ! One of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten. The wait staff was very efficient and courteous. We did not need reservations and were seated by the window without... More

We have eaten at the Mattakeese Wharf for our anniversary every year for the last 5 years. We love the view and usually the seafood is very good. This last visit the appetizers were good the dinners were horrible. We had a 7:30 PM reservation and our table was not ready when we arrived at 7:30 so we went to... More
