After getting engaged on Sandy Neck Beach, my fiance and I headed here for the first time for our own little celebratory dinner...we were treated like royalty! That was 2 years ago this November...We dine here every chance we get. The menu is always fresh and exciting and even have seen some of our favorites brought back time and time... More

Scargo you have again topped yourself. My recent visit as well as all past visits have always been so enjoyable. You are consistent with your level of service, relaxing atmosphere and oh so delicious entrees. Being year round residents here on Cape Cod we frequently choose to enjoy all the hospitality you have to offer.

I like the fact that the waiters and waitresses are the same every time. They seem to love their work and seem to care for their customers. This is not easy to find on the Cape. The food is also consistently in preparation and quality.

If you're looking for a great place to enjoy an excellent lunch or dinner in the Mid-Cape, Scargo Cafe is it! The food & service are excellent, the prices are moderate, and the ambiance is very conducive to visiting over a meal. You won't be disappointed.

We love Scargo, one of our favorite spots. We always take guests there and they enjoy it. Would like it even better with more draft beer and more vegetarian choices.

The Scargo Cafe is such a great place to eat and relax. The staff is wonderful with many long-time staff and the food is second to none! They have never let me down (except in the off season when the lobster are gone!) They have a meal for everyone from comfort food to fine dinning. The bar area and fire... More

The best part of this meal was that it ended quickly. The entrée was brought out before we were done with our soups, but this was not the disappointing part of our evening. The chilled cantaloupe soup tasted like it was made with rotten melon. Needless to say, the soup did not get finished. The chowder was all broth. We... More

Hi Paul, Thnaks so much for your visit. My sincere apologies for the disappointment but I appreciate your comments. As always... whether things were just not to your liking, or we plain screwed up, we stand by an implied guarantee. I'm sorry that we were not in tune enough to realize there was an issue while you were with us,... More

We ordered the seafood tower for an app and the rack of lamb and scallops for dinner. Everything was excellent and our server was great. Will definitely eat here again when back in area.

I should keep Scargo Cafe a secret, since I have a house in Dennis and visit year-round. But it is too good to keep quiet! Great drinks and food. We have never been disappointed in 4 years of dining there. My only complaint is that they took my favorite food off the menu...the duck confit salad. PLEASE bring it back... More
