Scargo Café is obviously a favorite restaurant in this area. It was really crowded, but we didn't have to wait long to be seated. The food is very unpretentious - just really good, hearty fare. The staff was attentive and friendly. The prices aren't bad either.

My husband and I typically rely on Scargo's Cafe on our yearly visit to Cape Cod. The service is always efficient and the menu is varied with a nice seafood selection. On this particular visit, we had the best salad ever, called Rockets and Cakes. It was arugula tossed with a Dijon dressing with granny smith apples, cheddar cheese and... More

Scargo Cafe is one of our favorites on Cape Cod! It is a wonderful combination of upscale dining yet still casual enough not to be stuffy. The menu is very complete with a wide range of seafood as well as "land" food, the staff is always polite and attentive, and the whole ambiance is one of comfort and good cheer.... More

Seated prompt with reservations on a Summer Saturday night. Them waited while wait staff passed us by or stood by door. Finally we were discovered and got menus followed by bread. Asked if halibut house special was local and assured it would be cooked to perfection. Party of four -two of us ordered the halibut and waitress showed visible annoyance... More

Went with 6 people last night. Food was outstanding. All six people were happy. The service was marginal. Waitress kept forgetting who ordered what. We ordered dessert after flagging her down and five desserts came out 10 minutes later. One person was them told we are out if carrot cake at that point. Why it took so long to figure... More

I ate here on my birthday and had the delicious seafood pastry dish that they make. It was a lovely evening and the service was great, even though they were very busy. We always enjoy coming here when we are on the Cape

We were looking for a restaurant to have lunch on a Sunday mid-day as we were sadly leaving the Cape for the summer. In searching TripAdvisor we read the reviews for Scargo Cafe and decided it was a great option for us. The menu has enough variety so that there is something for everyone, yet the restaurant is casual enough... More

We have been vacationing in Dennis for years, and Scargo Cafe has consistently been one of our favorites for the last few years. They take reservations for 50 percent of their dining room each night, which is awesome on the Cape, where very few restaurants take reservations. Just call days in advance as it fills up quickly! The menu is... More

Came here due to the reviews and the atmosphere and surprisingly left disappointed. Clam chowder was mostly soup and barely had any clams and potatoes. I ordered the lobster pea risotto for dinner which was decent but not worth the price. Wish I knew this was a tourist trap because I would of never bothered coming here. Don't get fooled... More
