We have been going to the Cape for more than 15 years and this is our first time here. Great food, Great service, Great atmosphere. We usually go to the same places each year but try to check out a new one as well. Scargo will definitely be in the permanent rotation!

Atmosphere was great and food was very good. Chilled peach soup was very delicious. Both our seafood dishes were cooked perfectly. I recommend calling and making reservations early. They fill up quick.

By far our best meal on the Cape. Arrived earlier than our reservation but decided to eat at the bar. If you have time to kill head to Mayflower beach and catch the sunset prior to dinner. Atmosphere in the place was great. Felt like old world cape with a slightly new spin on it. I had the scampi polenta... More

This is one of the better places to dine. Have been there twice and had fish and burgers respectively. The food is good and tasty, but without the the wow-effect that you will get at Fin's across the road. When we came the first time, we had a group of 10 family dinner next to us, which was clearly fun... More

Our first visit to Scargo this summer was very good. They have a lovely patio/porch which they seem reluctant to use. Why would a person prefer to dine inside on a lovely day? Eventually we prevailed on our first visit, and did get seated on the porch and were served by a lovely young woman, Heather. The mushroom caps stuffed... More

A top notch establishment in the tiny town of Dennis. The decor is true masculine, like a cigar lounge. Wait staff mix the drinks and do not skimp on the alcohol. The food is exceptional!!! We had the calamari, scallops and shrimp. A true gem!!!

We dined here two nights in a row because it was so good!!! Delicious food, good portions, excellent service. We enjoyed the calamari, the baked seafood app, swordfish, scallops, and clam chowder!! They had some tasty local wines as well, and warm fresh baked bread. The ambiance is lovely, with dark woods reminding you of a library or den, but... More

Quaint old restaurant with very attentive staff. Had drinks and delicious snacks after a show at the playhouse. Prices were reasonable. Apparently the bar area is generally much quieter but on this night there was a rowdy group from a wedding reception but it was still pleasant albeit loud. Would love to come back for dinner as it looks very... More
