Great idea for the upper cape as there is no steak house. The place is busy naturally, being new and most attractive with caring and experienced management. I think the menu is over ambitious and hence the quality is not great across the board. I wish them well as a lot of money was obviously spent to make it extremely attractive.

This is a new restaurant in an older location that is lovely but seems to have trouble retaining great restaurants. All thru the dinner, at least three management/owner types asked us if "everything was okay?" And it was.....everything was okay. Not great, not awful, but just okay. I want this place to be amazing. The servers were lovely, the owners were attentive....but the food was just "okay". Unfortunately we got off to a rough start when the Caesar salad was presented to us, frozen. The bread basket was a selection of different types of muffins......I suggest relaxing that a bit and just doing some nice, crusty bread and olive oil. The muffins might be too ambitious with the competing flavors. There were also two different flavored butters....again, olive oil would be less work, and way healthier. Our entrees were smallish and okay-ish. I know they just opened and clearly are working out the kinks. Give this place a month or two and it should be excellent.

We have been to this restaurant twice now and both times enjoyed a great meal. The first time was in the main dinning room. The wait staff was excellent and very attentive to your table and your requests. I had the scallops and shrimp with grilled asparagus which was delicious. My girlfriend had the pumpkin bisque soup and the salmon also with asparagus and also very delicious. The second time we sat at the bar. We were just going to have a drink and some appetizer which we did but also ordered the barbequed rib combo with peach whiskey sauce. The ribs were perfect and enough for the two of us. I would and have recommended the restaurant to a number of my friends and associates.

We have enjoyed eating at Wicked, when we learnt that the owners were opening a Southern style Steak Restaurant close by, we could not wait to try it. We were not disappointed, the food was great. The experience starts with the welcoming greeting from the hostess, reinforced by the excellent, knowledgeable wait staff, and the wonderful menu. Lots of interesting wines to choose plus a full selection of whiskeys and some interesting cocktails. From the menu we chose the pumpkin bisque and New York sirloins with sides. The soup was home made and together with the breads was a wonderful starter. The steaks were cooked to perfection and had a great flavor. Mushrooms, fried okra and collard greens were our sides which complemented the meat well. Our only comment would be a little too much salt for our taste in the sides, but we do not use much salt at home. The dessert menu was tremendous, unfortunately we just could not manage more food. The atmosphere and decor are superb for a really nice evening. Our waitress was professional and made our visit a great experience. We will return and so happy to have this addition to the dining scene on Cape Cod. Next time I want to try the ribs! Not cheap but overall good value.
