This restaurant is unreal! The food is ridiculously delicious & sophisticated & impressive. The service is exemplary/ Kate. The ambience inside feels very Hamptons. We all had almost everything on the menu exc dessert …all loved it all! Very special indeed.

One of the best meals I have had in a very long time. The beets and the chips & fish dip were so good that I would probably make the 6-hour drive just to have them again. The staff was terrific and the historic house...was very cool, too. Meals are designed to be shared, so you can taste several dishes! Highly recommend The Pheasant!More

The meal was served tapas side, with small plates that we shared. Each dish was amazing. Our favourites were the seared scallops, roasted potatoes, and greens.

It is good, but nothing special. It is a house. You could seat outside on the picnic bench (highly recommended if you are looking for some privacy) or inside with the other people close by. The food is good and service is great, but it...is really nothing special.More

With Cape Cod filled with one too many tired old fried seafood restaurants, it's a welcome break to go visit The Pheasant. The menu changes by season, makes use of local ingredients, and is always well planned and executed. You can do inside or outside...dining, and there is also a great bar area with custom cocktails. Outside dining is available in a nice back courtyard or at picnic tables by a fire pit. You can also order take out. The staff is always well trained, and the owners are great. Starting last season they also added a great wine store in the restaurant that carries some great labels. We consider this one of the best - if not the best - restaurant on Cape Cod.More

We’ve all done it. Driveen by very old house with a commercial sign out front. Inside may be needlepoint, jams, food. They’re all hoping to offer something that inspires you to help them pay the property taxes. We’ve driven past The Pheasant many times. This...time we’re staying in the B & B Nextdoor (Scargo Manor B & B is equally wonderful) and we have no excuse not to try. I dare you not to feel what I did when I walked in the door. It was simultaneously warm, quieting, welcoming and, just pleasing. Allie is the bar empress and she shepherded us from cocktails through grown up ice cream. From Olives to Ice Cream, this was a wonderful experience and now memory. Unique and Delicious!More

Food, service and atmosphere are excellent. A hidden gem and easily worthy of the drive from Boston or beyond on its own. Menus are creative and exciting, never the same old same old here. Definitely a must try for anyone who enjoys trying new things...and appreciates excellent cuisine. The owners have made a tremendous effort to support their staff and community during the pandemic. We go out of our way to dine at the Pheasant in light of their common sense COVID-19 policies and the safe & cleanly experience they create for all. Sadly there are members of our community who both cannot be bothered to think of others and also feel the need to bash small businesses. I for one prefer to dine at establishments that take health and safety seriously. The less crazies in attendance the better!More

I’m coming back in for a new review after leaving a bad review a few years ago. Perhaps this Japanese pop up is what The Pheasant needed. It’s still the same inside, but the food is Japanese tapas. Something the Cape is in desperate need...of - quality tapas and great Japanese food. The menu isn’t sushi, mind you. It’s a small selection of tapas, small plates and a few large plates. We shared a few of the small plates and moved on to sharing the large plates as well. All of which were delicious. I think the only one I wouldn’t recommend was the yellowtail tuna large plate. It was just a bit bland and hard to manage with the tail and bones. Still tasty, just not my first choice over the fried chicken special and definitely the wagyu steak. I could have blown through each of the tapas and small plates as well. Our server was wonderful as well. Definitely ask questions when in doubt. Here’s my only “buts.” The place is freezing early on. That brought back memories of the old Pheasant. The restrooms were like a freezer too. It takes a while for the place to warm up, so dress appropriately. The wine situation was weird too. They have a short wine list, but then they encourage you to go back to this weird area where there is an extended wine selection. You can buy a bottle there and for a $10 corking fee, enjoy. It’s weird. Finally, the stupid Toast thing. You just sign the bill and have no idea what you just signed and don’t get a receipt. I despise Toast I definitely recommend hitting The Pheasant before the Japanese pop up goes away in FebruaryMore

This is not your typical Cape Cod dining experience. They are looking to provide something different with their Japanese inspired menu. The food preparation and presentation was excellent. After 4 days of dining out at the Cape, I had my top 3 best bites here....The drinks were excellent, very professional bar tending. Interior is cozy and warm. The wine guy was great and very informative. It is their vax mandate that I have difficulty with. I do not see a need for vaccination restriction. You need a vax card to get in. Unless they know something the rest of the state does not, they are not providing a safer environment by restricting access. I will go back, but only when they lift the silly vaccine mandate. Not before.More

We went to The Pheasant at least once a week over the summer as it was our favorite outdoor restaurant. All through the summer they were very accommodating for dairy and gluten allergies as well as for my mother who is vegetarian. We were so...excited to try their new Japanese pop up and see their indoor spot. It is still our favorite place!!! It is incredibly cozy with a wood burning fireplace at the bar and a wood burning stove in the main area. The owners are the nicest people and they are still VERY accommodating to my dairy and gluten allergy, and the drinks are delicious. It will always be our favorite place to go for date night, as well as a place to bring our friends & family. If you have not been yet you are missing out!More

What a great experience overall. So many highlights…first the food. The Pheasant is doing a Japanese pub pop-up called Izakaya. They food was incredible, not what you’d expect from the typical Japanese restaurant experience. This is a pub type menu that travels very well. Brilliantly...executed by the kitchen, flavors , tastes and seasonings are so good. We over ordered and it was so great to have leftovers. The host/ owner gave us a warm friendly welcome and the staff was attentive and friendly also. Reservations required and a mask upon entering plus vaccination card must be presented. (I LOVED ALL OF THAT). Recommending this experience to all of our friends. Might be our new cape favorite.More

Nice evening with friends eating at the Pheasant, our first visit. With Covid outdoor dining is everywhere at the Cape. I have no preference eating in or out. This place had a nice setup outside with a campfire for roasting marshmallows if you were so...inclined, sticks and marshmallows to order. Picnic tables in a large space near their parking lot and another area surrounded by trees with picnic tables and the campfire. You download the menu as you wait in line to place your order outside. I ordered the Mediterranean mezze plate and it was plentiful, had the leftovers for lunch today as you can see in my photo. My partner had the grilled chicken sandwich and a beer. I cannot recommend the mixed drinks as my cocktail had little to no alcohol in the raspberry lemonade. However they did have a selection of beer and wine that looked pleasing. The staff were pleasant and attentive. Try the Pheasant I think you’ll enjoy.More

Thank you, “The Pheasant”. You have the finest food on the Cape. Delicious, elegant and refined. After almost 7 months in quarantine, I’m really sick of my own cooking, and we enjoyed a delightful dinner from your restaurant this evening. Many more in the future.
