I am amused by newphase's complaint about the service at Cap't Cass, for favoring the locals......especially since it came from a reviewer who lives in New York City where in many restaurants only the elite get to eat, while the rest of us can wait forever. I am a local-but unknown to the establishment - and have always found the staff doing the best they can to be friendly and welcoming. Does the reviewer have any idea what running a restaurant on Cape Cod is like in the summer? Packed with guests, owners slave away to get food on the table. They have little time to play elitist games (and, to be frank, if the people seated seconds before you were regular customers, they probably deserved some small consideration for their loyalty over the years.) So, come on back in the fall when all of us can breathe. As for Cap't Cass being like a clam shack..... since when is that a put-down? Unfortunately, these low key, unassuming spots have become few and far between. With their loss, a whole part of what makes Cape Cod special is gone forever. New York fancy Cap't is not, but with real cod and old fashioned chowder available what's not to like? (Oh, and if a restaurant admits to running out of scallops, there is a good chance that what they are serving is fresh.)
