LOCAL DINING

At last count, Cape Cod restaurants numbered over 400. That means that you could eat in a different restaurant everyday and still not try them all.   

Whether you are looking for a great raw bar or have a hankering for something from an old-school clam shack or maybe you would like a spot to celebrate a special occasion ........ 

Below you will find nearly all of the restaurants local to your cottage along with some of the other popular restaurants.  The list is in order by distance to/from the cottage as well as dining style.

........ So much to choose from …… so little time.  We hope that you find it to be a helpful tool when planning your getaway !

THERE IS A BOAT LOAD MORE INFORMATION IN YOUR COTTAGE

FOUND IN YOUR   “INSIDER’S GUIDE”

-          There is some limited dining info below and an extensive list of local restaurants and takeout spots above.   Check out the most recent version of the “Best of Cape” lists from Cape Cod Life Magazine.  You are literally just down the street from the Mid-Cape/Lower-Cape line so check both as you are closer to some Lower Cape winners than say a MidCape winner in Hyannis. https://capecodlife.com/best-of/mid-cape/  AND https://capecodlife.com/best-of/lower-cape/    

-          You can also review other areas of the Cape by clicking on the map here,  https://capecodlife.com/best-of-cape-cod-islands/ 

-          MENUS - You will also find some menus in your cottage you some left by us and others brought back by guests like you.

-          RESERVATIONS - Reservations at popular restaurants are suggested during summer months

-          DRESS - No strict dress code but as a point of reference .... many restaurants are beach casual or casual and some are business casual ( i.e.Capris, Sun dresses, knee length khaki shorts and polo shirt no cut-off jeans or tank tops).  The Cape as a whole is very informal.

-          NOTE FOR GUESTS FROM OUTSIDE OF THE U.S. – Please note: - Most restaurants offer their last meals around 9:00PM – we realize that most Europeans do dine late in the evening so you may want to plan accordingly.   You should try to phone ahead for times if desired.  An excerpt from a UK guests feedback -  One thing to note, perhaps especially to European guests, is that many restaurants close earlier than we are used to – in Europe we very often are only going out at this time so we got caught out a couple of nights!

-          BYOB – Some cape restaurants do not have a full service liquor license & so some allow you to Bring Your Own Bottle ......   BYOB – Dennis has Sesuit Harbor Café on the north side,  Yarmouth has The Jerk Café  and Mac Seafood in Wellfleet is also a BYOB location.  Always call ahead to double check .....  Google or check here for more Cape-Wide Google Cape Cod BYOB and look here  http://www.urbanspoon.com/t/103/15/Cape-Cod/BYOB-restaurants

 

DISCLAIMER:  We cannot always keep this list up-to-the-minute.  So always call ahead...for time, resercvations etc.    When it comes to recommendations we realize that  everyone's idea of a great meal, personal taste and palate are not similar.  So we refrain but coming soon we will post some of our favorites spots .....ENJOY!!
