Just returned from a wonderful meal at a quaint tavern in Harwich recommended by a friend. Low ceilings, warm wood and live music added to a delightful evening. The food was spectacular, especially the Mushroom soup. The salad was alive with textures and the presentation was fun. The staff were encouraging and warm and informative and very efficient. A great... More

The service was very slow. Complained about one entrée to the waitress and she returned it to the kitchen and brought it back out completely overcooked. Asked for the Manager who came and told her what transpired and she apologized and asked if I would like something else and I said no, you can take it away and I asked... More

I was in a couple of weeks ago (waited for the summer crowd to go away!) and enjoyed a lovely dinner at the bar - bartender Damien was the perfect host! I love the salad that they wrap in a cucumber circle and those duck infused sliders were the best! Great menu and I am glad to see I can... More

This was our first time at Mooncussers. ..We were extremely pleased with the service, cleanliness, and food. This is an inventive chef who likes combining unusual flavors, so those with sophisticated palates, get ready to be delighted! The reverse can be true, too, as my husband says that he wasn't thrilled with the lavender creme brulee (although he ate every... More

We loved the tappas and burgers, the staff was so extraordinary and the waitress was so at ease, we had a great time. They had live music on a Thursday night which in the off season added to feeling right at home. This place gets on the list for the next trip to town.

Four of us for dinner on a Saturday in October. Had reservation and were seated right away. Parking was a little tight but maybe I missed a back lot. Seated at a nice table in the bar in front of a fireplace, 2 piece group playing. We thought the saxophone Happy Birthday played to a neighboring table was pretty cool.... More

We have been going to Mooncussers since they opened. Great food, Great Drinks, Great service. We always sit at the bar and talk with Damien. They have changed this location to a destination. I almost always have the Charcuterie plate. Many people love their duck infused hamburgers.

The burgers are infused with duck fat which gave the burger that much more flavor. Really nice local cheese plate. There was live music which was nice but the restaurant is a little loud.

Arrived on time with a reservation, bartender (and owner it seems) saw us, walked past us and left us standing with no hello or just a minute. Bad start. Given teeny tiny table in middle of room, asked for table by window (same size), told its was reserved. During dinner 2 other couples were offered the window table (one set... More
