Great BBQ!

I have been coming to Marconi for years. I frequent the Cape often and try to eat here every trip. This is you typical BBQ joint, not a "fine dining" restaurant. They have great BBQ with a good smoke and a great vinegar with a hint of sweetness sauce. The brisket and ribs are my favorite. The ribs... read more

Have passed this place so many times and thankfully they had some limited winter hours this off-season and we had a chance to stop in. We weren't disappointed. Great variety on the menu...AMAZING BBQ, delicious Onion Rings and really good prices. The wait staff was also fantastic. They love their place. The decor is really cool too. So if you... More

Had a great meal here of fried chicken and ribs. My southern boy loved his ribs but the chicken was by far the standout. Make sure you shake hands with Russ the owner - super nice guy, lots of great local tips and stories, and check out his collections in the lower dining area. Really a fantastic place run by... More

We live on Cape Cod, but rarely go to the Lower-Cape area (towards Provincetown at the tip of the Cape), because it is about an hour from out home. On those rare occasions when we head in that direction, we have driven by the Marconi Beach Restaurant and have always commented on how we should stop. I knew it was... More

This is a restaurant we drove by on our way to P-town. Full parking lots never lie, so we decided to give it a try. The meat smoker is in full view from the front of the restaurant, which made me want the BBQ pulled pork sandwich. Delicious, of course. Also, glad they had Long Trail on tap. They also... More

I stopped here quite by accident while traveling with my two teenage sons. We were driving along the Cape and the boys were hit with sudden case of "We're starving! Let's get lunch NOW!" Saw the BBQ lace and pulled in. So glad we did! Wonderful smoked meat sandwiches, ribs, chicken. All huge portions with wonderful smokey flavor and delectable... More

On Cape Cod every restaurant boasts of having the best of something and when I visited the Marconi Beach Restaurant and saw that they had the best fried chicken in the state I was skeptical. Not anymore..its was the best I've had. Brisket was excellent. Sides were all good and tasted homemade . Only downside was having to walk through... More

This was hands down one of the best meals I have ever eaten. Being on the Cape, there are a lot of good restaurants. But this is a TRULY GREAT restaurant. Everything on there menu (and let me tell you it is an EXTENSIVE menu) is fantastic. There is just something so authentic about watching them smoke their meat right... More
