“Pretty good food in Barnstable Village.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Visited for first time with UK guests. Swordfish was very nice but portion a bit small. Mashed potato side dish was cold but tasty. A bit noisy atmosphere and slightly spotty service. Will try again.

“First Class Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

The Dolphin is a first class restaurant in a very old setting in quaint Barnstable Village. This was a perfect combination of pleasant surroundings, first-class service and expertly prepared food that makes for a very enjoyable night out. They offer a nice combination of seafood and meats that will satisfy most people. On this occasion, I opted for the Duck which was crispy outside and moist inside. They offer a nightly sauce to highlight the meal.

“FINE DINING ON 6A”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

All along beautiful route 6A on Cape Cod you will find many great places to eat. The Dolphin in Barnstable is one of those terrific restaurants. Our meals sat night were excellent. All of us had various fish dishes and were very satisfied. There was only one veg. on the menu but you could substitute for cole slaw. The crackers and cheese starting the meal were delicious. It's a small restaurant so a little cramped but not bad. Service was very good and helpful. You'll enjoy a stop at the Dolphin. The fish meals are top notch but you can also order chicken and meat dishes.

“Great lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

My husband and I stopped in for lunch while road tripping on the Cape. The food was excellent. We had salad to start, fish n chips and a fish sandwich. The fish tasted really fresh and the service was great. We even stayed for dessert, which was also great.

“Great Local Restaurant”

I do not get to go to this side of the Cape much but this was definately worth the trip. Great food, good prices and great service with a smile.
