Good overall, nice menu

Looking over the dining area I'm the guessing the average age is North of 70. That should tell you something about the quality/value ratio and that this is not ideal for children, but I have brought children here for lunch. Service was friendly and prompt. My wife had lobster mac and cheese which... read more

I was supposed to meet someone there (their choice) but got stood up. I decided to eat anyway because I was hungry. I went to the hostess station and although waitstaff kept passing and acknowledging me, I thought that for lunch hour, it was very surprising not to have someone right there and so I waited until she finally showed...

This was a perfect café for a family of twelve celebrating a wedding. First time for most of us, and we were greeted warmly and settled into our reserved table quickly. Our wait staff was informative, and attentive; water was refilled without asking, warm bread arrived immediately. All twelve meals arrived at the same time and hot. The menu is... More

Been visiting Scargo Café for many years. Always busy - good idea to make a reservation. Bar is busy too. Not really a place for small children. Can be a little pricey. Last visit, we had a new waiter (we think). Our drinks came, and we waited for almost 45 minutes, before he came back to say our order didn't... More

Scargo is within walking distance of the Cape Playhouse, very convenient to eat here before a show. We had a lovely table in the front window. We all had fish from the special menu (swordfish, halibut and tuna) and each dish was fresh and tasty.The staff was pleasant and efficient. We will return!

What a great experience! The atmosphere is like someone living room or library. Warm, cozy and comfortable! Food was excellent. I started with the scallops and my main dish was shrimp with polenta. All dishes were prepared with care... And our server hands great sense of humor!

We called in on the off chance a table would be available for 6 on a late Sunday lunch. We didn't have long to wait and it was worth it. The food was very tasty, I am English and prefer quality to quantity so I was not disappointed here, the seafood in pastry was delicious.

Very nice restaurant and great food. Tuna and beet salad were exceptional. You must have the grape-nut pudding.Service was excellent.
