Description: Mattakeese Wharf is a SEASONAL (May4 to October21 ) waterfront restaurant on Cape Cod, MA since 1968. We serve fresh, local seafood including lobsters, steaks, chicken, and some Italian specialties. There is no better romantic sunset view while dining on the Cape than here at Mattakeese Wharf. See the sunset slideshow on our website with many photos contributed by diners. We are open late April through mid October. Mattakeese Wharf is located next to a whale watching boat so we are a natural destination after your day on the water with the whales. We offer a full bar and live entertainment during the summer season... a great place to watch the Sox games! We serve lunch and dinner 7 days a week plus Brunch on Sundays. We are open during the season(May 4 - Oct.21) from 11:30am until 9 in the evening. Check our website for info!

It was Saturday early evening when we arrived with 6 adults and 2 children under the age of 4. We were warmly welcomed and our table was ready and set as requested in the front porch. We were celebrating a birthday and had selected this restaurant because they accept reservations and we had a family of all ages. The meal was just great, our server was excellent. The bass special that night was amazing. When you can please a party of 8 you know you have found GOLD! The adults retired to the lounge where we had a night cap and listened to the duo performing that evening. It was a wonderful celebration with everyone leaving with a smile. We hope to return soon.

We dined at the Mattakeese Wharf restaurant on our first night in Cape Cod. Even without reservations, the hostess was able to find our group of 8 a table within 5 minutes on a busy Saturday night. The table was a bit cramped and in a high traffic area, but the dining room was surrounded by windows and we were able to enjoy the sunset over the water. Menu was mostly seafood and prices were average. Food was average to good. Portions were plentiful.

I have been going to the Cape all my life and never knew this restaurant existed. I have been missing out! We went on a Saturday night and had to wait about 10 minutes. The table they sat us at was right on the water and we were able to watch the beautiful sunset and the boats pulling into the dock.
I ordered baked stuffed haddock and it was so delicious! The best I have ever had! My husband ordered swordfish, my mother had baked stuff shrimp, and my father had the scollops. All of our meals were cooked well and tasted even better! Two weeks later, we are still talking about how good the food was and how we can't wait to return!

Our waitress Matilda guided us thru the selection of super fresh seafood. The tomatini was delicious to start ($11). A tomato based vodka martini. Portions of sea bass were plentiful. Shrimp were amazing.

Convenient lunch spot after the Whale Watch! Food was good but a bit pricey for lunch! Great location overlooking the harbor!
