Enjoyable

I really enjoy going to Scargo Cafe. Everything on the menu is good, however, I which they would change up the menu once in a while.

I've been going here for over ten years, I live in the neighborhood year-round. Always good, but not worth more than a 30 minute wait. Call ahead for take out and head for the beach for a gourmet picnic.

Blew in on a late fall afternoon to find a comfortable place to feed my heart and soul with something tasty and quench my thirst with something bubbly! Local Wellfleet Oysters paired well with a pint of local brew! Crab cakes and then... Asian fish sandwich and a sweet treat shared with my table-mates! Yum! Nice place to refresh before... More

We've been fans of this restaurant since it opened. The food, the service, the staff and the owners are just wonderful. It is clean and welcoming. If I were forced to say something negative it would be that this place is everyone's favorite so it is rare that one can walk in and be seated right away; obviously a sign... More

Scargo Cafe is so much fun. The food is wonderful. They change the menu items too. You get to try new things, it's not the same every time you visit. The staff is very friendly and the ambiance is totally comfortable. Thanks for a great experience every time Scargo Cafe!

We love going to Scargo Cafe, food and service is great. My favorite is their Seafood Strudel! Only problem is it is sometimes hard to get a table even in the off season. They take reservations for only a certain number of tables but the wait is usually worth it.

My wife and I have wanted to try Scargos and deemed this weekend for a visit. Our arrival was met with a slight indifference and tepidness from the staff, but offset by our friendly, very efficient waitress Gina. This review was negatively slanted by the aforementioned arrival and our clam chowder appetizer. We have both consumed and made enough clam... More

Thanks so much for your very thoughtful, clever, and well written review. I have to admit that you sound fair and balanced. I am sincerely apologetic that we didn't let the "what made Scargo famous" warmth and magic shine through when during your visit. At the bottom of every check we ask... "We care, did it show?" Aside from the... More

Went for lunch with a friend had the French onion soup which was good and the ham and Brie sandwich which was also good. Our waiter Steven was professional and the only negative thing I can say it took almost 40 minutes to get our sandwiches. Overall I would definitely return

Scargos is a great place to go with your family or on a date night. We have always had great service and the quality of food is brilliant. Highly recommend their cocktails!

This cozy Cape Cod restaurant is a cut above the others. The menu is diverse and imaginative and will appeal to all tastes. We have eaten here at least two dozen times in the past five years and it has become a standard place for lunch an dinner. Recommended.
