We ended up trying the cafe after our first choice was closed. Got there about 2pm, and although the parking was scarce, the seating at the bar wasn't. the service was good, and the food was very good. Although a bit pricey for lunch, we weren't disappointed.

I'm glad my dinner partner had a 20% off coupon, because I would have hated to pay full price. We ate in the tavern/bar room. The noise level was deafening. I don't know if this is the norm, but it was really loud. Our server was attentive even though there was a dinner crowd. I wasn't in the mood for... More

Scargo Cafe is a large operation, and it appears to draw loads of people, who undeniable all have a good time. The atmosphere is more pub-like than restaurant-like. So, it has to be said, is the food. No hard feelings: we got an affordable and tasteful Monday night dinner, but not a (culinary) experience we will carry with us forever.... More

We were a group of seven (some from across the pond), it was raining heavily and we needed a place for a good lunch when we stopped by the Scargo Cafe. It was warm and welcoming inside. We were not disappointed by the food and service. The server made great suggestions and the entrees selected were different by each of... More

I am a long time customer of Scargo Cafe. The reason? Total consistency. Food is excellent, service the same. I have never had a bad meal. The owners are shameless in their marketing techniques, but totally delightful. Recently I wanted to get my visiting 90 yo aunt a full lobster dinner at lunch and they arranged it without a problem... More

Clearly we are a minority opinion, but we do not agree with the rave reviews. The atmosphere was wonderful,. We started with a delicious autumn salad which whetted our appetites. We all ordered something different and after tasting the first bite, we all reached for the salt and pepper shakers at the same time. For example, I love scallops and... More

Charming restaurant with a terrific menu and attentive service. Located across the street from the Cape Cod Museum of Art, they did not require reservations. Our food was delicious and we enjoyed the atmosphere of casual but elegant dining.

I have been going to this restaurant, pretty much since it opened, a few times a year with friends who love it. I find it to be way overpriced for what it is. I can go to several more upscale places, pay the same price, and get much better food. I had a fall salad there last year, with roasted... More
