Enjoyed dinner here with my mom in mid-October. Surprisingly busy for the off-season, I gather this is a popular place with the year'rounders and locals. We enjoyed cocktails at the bar while waiting for a table within the cozy bar room. Dinner was exceptional, service...More

Our dining experience here was fine but nothing stood out...we didn't get off to the best start as our server was kibbutzing with some other guests who were obviously regulars. Food okay, wine list okay. Bottom line: nothing beckons us back.

Had a GREAT early dinner at Scargo Cafe in Dennis on Cape Cod tonight. Whereas my faithful dining companion stuck with their tried and truly delicious lamb, I opted for a more plebian approach to the last meal of the day this day. I started...More

A traditional, Tavern and Restaurant with wood paneled walls, open fireplaces and an outdoor covered deck for al Fresco dining during summer. The fare includes guest favorites such as roasted rack of New Zealand lamb, and seafood strudel (a seafood blend baked in pastry) with Newburg sauce. Lots of fresh local seafood and oysters. Many more seafood entrees, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, chicken, pasta selections, and their truly famous version of Grapenut Custard.
