I will say that the food here has improved over the years; it is better. Scargo is also a local 'watering hole', so there is lots of lunch and dinner activity, best to make a reservation ahead. Personally, I just keep hoping for more healthy choices and innovation on the menu, and I go because it's a local spot.

Wow is all I can say!! This was by far the best meal of the summer. My wife had the rack of lamb and I had the boneless ribs with mashed potatoes with crunchy onions(yum). We also had our best waitress of the summer named Kara. She was very friendly and made us feel like welcome guest. Please go to... More

My mother and I dropped in for a lunch on her way to visit friends in Wellfleet. We were seated in the indoor patio (delightful, light-filled space with Windows all around). My mother got the chicken sandwich; I got the pulled Pork. While going through the menu, I couldn't help noticing how eclectic and global the choices are compared with... More

I have been summering in Dennis for my entire life. Scargo Cafe has been around for as long as I can remember. It is very simple on the outside so I didn't expect it to be anything special on the inside. This summer, my family took me there for my 21st birthday. It was much more upscale than I imagined!...

My family and I spent a week in the Cape. We had the great pleasure of eating at many fantastic places but this was the best dinner of the entire trip. We started the night on the porch with a few cocktails and then proceeded to great table for all 8 of us. Of the many delicious plates that we... More

We've eaten here before and return because of the quality of service and food is to our liking. Our server this day was Kristina who was very helpful and professional. The cafe has a great decor so the atmosphere is very enjoyable inside. Eating is available on the porch too.

We went to Scargo with a group of 20 for lunch to celebrate a family anniversary. The staff could not have been any more gracious and accommodating! I got the Panko Crusted Scallops - best scallops I've ever had! Most of my family got seafood - Glazed Salmon, Grilled Swordfish, Lobster Mac & Cheese, or Seafood Strudel, which my they... 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.
