We recently met up with my college roommate and her husband for dinner at The Paddock. We were visiting Cape Cod and my friends, who are locals, recommended this restaurant. The menu had many selections along with a price fix menu which we selected. Nothing was disappointing and the environment was clean and relaxing. A good place to meet for... More

The Paddock is regaining its "one of the best " position with its new young chef. Fourth time we have been there this Summer and have loved it every time. Great food, excellent service and the owner always in attendance.

We returned to the Paddock after hearing from friends that a new chef had really improved the food. We had a great dinner: every course was at least very good, and some, like the barbecued pork chop and baked stuffed lobster, were excellent. There was plenty of menu variety, including a good number of interesting salads, such as watermelon and... More

This restaurant on the inside reminded us a lot of Sperry's Restaurant in Franklin, TN. The old I would say, grand decor, is quite lovely and the service was very friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. We had an appetizer, salad and entree and all were very fresh. I had the scallops and it was a generous serving and... More

Our family and guests all have enjoyed dinning at the Paddock this summer. The Paddock never disappointed us or our guests. Best soups in the area and the appeitizers from mussels to the crab cakes are a great way to start your dinner. All steak and seafood dishes were fresh and cooked to perfection. The Paddock also offers a great... More

We had dinner at The Paddock last night. It has the atmosphere of being in Grandma's dining room ..... and I mean this in a very positive way. It was very comfortable, the staff was very attentive and everyone took care to greet us. We both had the Prime Rib special, which was cooked exactly as ordered and delivered after... More

As others have stated we have been coming to the cape for 30 + years and always passed on the paddock as being too "touristy". We tried it recently for our 25 anniversary dinner, and we were very happy. Service was top-notch and had many old-school touches like splitting salads and helping us to not order too much food. The... More

Very sad to see The Paddock in this state of decline. I have not been to the Paddock for 5 years, but previous experiences I had were nothing short of remarkable. We were really looking forward to treating ourselves. We ate at the bar on a Thursday night. We split a lobster bisque, mussels and (what we looked forward to... More

I have been coming to the Cape for 30 years and always passed by the Paddock as to stuffy/old/dated. We gave the Paddock a try because we had tickets to Little Big Town playing at the Melody Tent. The Paddock has valet parking and is a two minute walk to the tent. The drinks were good sized, the meals were... More
