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

We were seated promptly in the tavern side on a busy Sunday evening. The steak tips special with mustard peppercorn sauce was amazing! Service was friendly and professional. Everyone loved their meals.

We returned as a family to this restaurant that once was a long time family fav. I am sad to report that we had a disappointing dinner with an unsympathetic server. We waited over an hour for a table, which is not unusual for a Cape Cod restaurant in August. We began with hot bread, some tasty appetizers ( fried... More

We have visited many times over the years for lunch and dinner and never disappointed. This visit was at 5:30 before the theater. When we arrived we were told a 45 minute wait which was disappointing, but the actual wait was only 12 minutes. My wife enjoyed her lobster Mac and cheese with a decent amount of lobster. My seafood... More

This spot is always busy, so get there early. You know a restaurant is good when it is patronized by numerous locals. Choose whatever sounds good and it will be a winner--everything on the menu is!

We go back to Scargo every year. The service and food is always really good! The bar side is our favorite for lunch and dinner. Reservations in July & August are a must - every night of the week.
