Food: 4.5 Service: 3 Ambiance: 4.5 Value: 3 One of the better restaurants on the Cape if you ask me. It's pricey, but kinda worth it. It's also a great looking restaurant. Service wasn't good, but I think our waitress was new and didn't know the menu at all. Bad training if you ask me. But it didn't ruin our... More

Atmosphere, service and food excellent. Average pricing, but never disappointed with either lunch or dinner. Waited a bit for a table, but it's worth it! Make great drinks as well - recommend anytime and it's open year-round which is a plus for those of us who live on the Cape!

We visited on a Tues at lunchtime and were glad that we had a reservation! It was busy. Our server was attentive without being obtrusive, the wine list was good and reasonably priced, and the menu was sufficiently varied to appeal to almost anyone. The corned beef Reuben was superb, best I've tasted in a long time. I also tried... More

Visited recently on a Saturday night for dinner with my sister. We did not have reservations, and were told it was about a 40 minute wait for a table. We also put our name on a list for bar seating, however, we were able to snag a high top table in the bar area (first come, first served). The ambience... More

We've been to Scargo Cafe several times and it is always packed so it's best to make a reservation. Last weekend was no exception, and we had a wonderful dinner, starting with fried calamari served with sliced banana peppers and lemon. For entrees we had Rack of Lamb and Prime Rib Gorgonzola. Both were cooked perfectly as requested. Scargo has... More

We had to wait about 20 minutes on a Sunday night, off season, but it was worth it. The menu is varied and portions are huge. The risottos are very good and not too heavy. The pea risotto with lobster was delicious and very fresh flavored with a good portion of perfectly cooked lobster meat. The glazed salmon was huge... More

Wonderful service, lovely converted house with comfy seating, and the food was delicious - another excellent dining experience on the Cape. My wife and I split a beet salad that was plenty for 2 but so good we wished we had our own. Lucky we left room for the bay scallops with quinoa and scrod dusted with honey-almond crust -... More

A traditional, Tavern and Restaurant with wood paneled walls, open fireplaces and an outdoor covered deck for al Fresco dining during summer. The fare includes guest favorites such as roasted rack of New Zealand lamb, and seafood strudel (a seafood blend baked in pastry) with Newburg sauce. Lots of fresh local seafood and oysters. Many more seafood entrees, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, chicken, pasta selections, and their truly famous version of Grapenut Custard.
