Went there for lunch with friends. Beautiful setting, lots of wood paneling, comfortable setting. Very friendly wait staff, prompt service, made some good suggestions. Food choices were great, and the food lived up to expectations. Definitely go back.

We had purchased tickets to a performance at the Cape Cod Playhouse. Where to have dinner? The obvious choice seemed to be the Scargo Cafe, literally across the street from the playhouse. Everyone in our group of 4 people was very pleased with this restaurant. Everything we ordered was just delicious. The menu is heavy on seafood items, but there... More

As 'locals' on Cape Cod we dine at Scargo quite often. The food is delicious, consistent and wait staff is wonderful. A favorite for lunch is the roasted beet salad, for dinner the broiled salmon with mango salsa.

Have been eating here for over 18 years. It has been always good food with reasonable prices. Needs reservation in summer to avoid long wait.

My partner and I walked in to have a drink and appetizers. There was a side table at the bar that we asked if it was ok to sit at. We weren't sure if we were supposed to order at the bar or if someone would help us. We went closer to the bar to ask after about 5 minutes... More

We had a party of 4 on a Thursday night. was told it would be a 45 minute wait so we went to the tavern for a drink. in hindsight we should have just grabbed a spot at the bar for dinner because it sure was frustrating to watch people get served there so quickly while we waited. About an... More

The food was edible but not quite what I expected for $26. The air conditioning was on extremely cold and it was blowing on the tables. They set it slightly higher after complaints but it was still unpleasantly cold and windy at the table. Service was a little slow but they were busy. This is a place that a lot... More

We had lunch during our Cape Cod vacation and very much enjoyed the quality of the food, the kindness of the service and the setting. The six of us had different burgers and sandwiches all very fresh and well prepared. The portobello focaccia sandwich was particularly good.

Just spent a week in Dennis and the Scargo Cafe was the best. There are a lot of great food options in Dennis but the Scargo offers a unique menu. My wife had the lemon-parmesan chicken linguine and I have had the spicy fried chicken sandwich. Both dishes were excellent and a nice change from the rest of the cape.... 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.
