Description: Mattakeese Wharf is a SEASONAL (1st weekend in May to last Saturday in September) 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. 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 during the summer season. We serve lunch and dinner Wed-Sun. We are open during the season from 11:30am until 9 in the evening. Please check our Facebook page for specials and updates. 2020 COVID UPDATE: Outside Picnic Tables available, and some safely spaced indoor waterview tables. MASKS are required until seated to protect our staff and patrons. Thank you for your patience and kindness. Sorry, no reservations will be taken.

Service has never been anything less than outstanding, friendly, efficient, non-intrusive wait staff. They just opened for the 2016 season and the entrees were uniformly applauded by our fivesome. The Pasta Livorna and swordfish specials seem to always be on point. Our one landlubber who ordered chicken cleaned his plate with the free rolls. We love this place. When the weather turns warm, the deck is a favorite at sunset. First come, first serve ... reservations accepted, but not for the window seats .. good luck.

Food was great, the service was too. Right on the water for a real Cape Cod experience. You won't be disappointed. Have a cocktail or a bite to eat

The place sits right on the bay and this location is quintessential Cape Cod. The food is of high quality. Appetizers were good: Clam Chowder and Crab Cakes. We both had the baked scrod that was fresh and tasty. We skipped dessert and had a few extra Cape Cod Reds! You must come and visit here.

We have eaten here several times when visiting family in Barnstable. The restaurant has excellent fish. The view out onto the ocean is stunning at sunset. The staff have always been attentive and the meals always excellent. They are only open in season.
