I am sorry but I had to write a true and honest review of this restaurant. I never normally do but feel that this place is just not what they say it is. The web site is totally different from the actual restaurant so don't be fooled by this. We went there because they say kid friendly.....No butcher paper on... More

High prices keep most locals away. The service and food are very uneven. The bar is popular with the theatre crowd from the Playhouse.

Dined at The Summer Stock with five others on a Thursday evening in mid -July. Arrived at 7:30 PM, place was perhaps filled to 15% of capacity. Dining area was nice enough, perhaps rather bland. One diner in our party ordered the squash lasagna and raved about how good it was. Another ordered the new york sirloin and though the... More

Summer Stock is a breath of fresh air in this beautiful village of Dennis. The addition of this restaurant on the theatre campus adds a hip & exciting alternative to dining that this area needs. The food is fresh,creative,and includes local farms. The decor is crisp,clean and vibrant. Love it

My wife and have been twice. The restaurant was great because of it's ambience, service and food. We had swordfish and salmon, cooked to perfection. We also went another time and ate at the bar. We had appetizers that were light and just right, mixed drinks were great too

I have read the reviews and can't understand them! I think the food here is wonderful, the service is great, and there is a sweet bar with live music. What more could you ask for? I eat out 3-4 times a week and travel extensively. This place is a hidden gem.

Summer Stock is located on the grounds of the Cape Playhouse, Cinema, and Museum of Fine Arts, so you would expect it to be top-notch. Not so. Disappointing, limited menu, dull décor and indifferent service. No one seems to care about their clientele. I noticed the place was almost empty even though a new play was about to have its...

Having rolled out of the Cape Cinema at after a great film, the three of us were very hungry for a late night supper. Because this restaurant is virtually next door to the cinema and it was so late, we didn't want to waste time finding another place that was open, so we landed here. We were all disappointment with... More
