As soon as I walked in, I was reminded of a restaurant that would have been the go-to place for special occasions in the '60s and '70s. The diners all appeared to be in that age group and were quietly enjoying their beverages and meals. The atmosphere didn't shout Cape Cod or two hundred year-old barn (which the building was),...

Thank you for your comments, we always enjoy hearing guests opinions. Actually the barn is 250 years old and was a ship's Chandlery on Corporation Beach where they built boats inside. It is old Cape Cod with wide board floors and Victorian lights, not the Cape Cod many think of with blues and a beach feel. After 38 years in... More

We stayed only three nights in the East Dennis area, and after a lovely meal on our first night we went back again on our third. This is a lovely old building with wooden beams and a cozy atmosphere. The food was imaginative and delicious. Once I chose the sole meuniere, and next the duck. Both came with gratin potatoes... More

Like many Cape Cod visitors, we're here for just one week each year, so we choose our dinner destinations carefully. Based on last years experience, we re-visited the Red Pheasant and found it to be as good as we remembered. The Garden room is lovely and manages to feel relaxed even when full. The duck with cranberry was still spectacular,... More

Enjoyed dinner at the intimate bar before a film at a local theater. The rack of lamb with seasonal vegetables was perfectly prepared. The service by the bartender was spot on

I have been to the Red Pheasant on multiple occasions. It is by far my favorite restaurant in the USA. Food is consistently high quality, service is impeccable and I love the cozy historic charming interiors. Highly recommended!

Wonderful historic building, very inviting. Food is extraordinary. We have had great service in the past, during our most recent visit the waitress was a little disappointing.

We had an excellent meal with friends focused on the Scallops and Duck with interesting appetizers and wonderful deserts. For our group of six, there was an automatic 20% service and it was worth an additional 2% for the excellent service we received. A family favorite for the two local couples and new to us, this is a fine restaurant... More

Paraphrasing Billy Crystal's SNL character mocking the legendary Latin Lover Fernando Lamas, ”The Red Pheasant is Mahhvellousss. Absoloootely Mahhvellouss.” My wife, Ingrid, and I dined at the Red Pheasant on a lovely August Friday evening and were richly rewarded with an excellent dining experience with FAST (Food, Ambiance, Service, and Taste).

I'll get to the food in a minute. First, the setting. This a converted 200-year-old barn, complete with typical old post-and-beam construction, old, wide-plank floors, etc. But neither the decor, the ambiance nor the menu is intended to create the "ye-olde-country-inn" experience. It's just a nice restaurant in an old building. More importantly, these people understand the importance of SPACE... More

The portion sizes are extremely small. I am a slender woman and have a small appetite so coming from me this is very bad. The lamb was red, very undercooked. The dessert was fabulous. They let us try a cracker with cheese and then asked if we wanted for the table and was very expensive. We found the staff snooty.... More

We are disappointed you were unhappy. Our rack of lamb is a signature dish and it is very rare to have a complaint. If you had let us know we would have replaced it. We offer our sincere apologies your evening was not perfect. More
