We stopped for lunch at the time restaurant just open and were surprised how many people were there already. Especially at the bar where every stool was occupied what seems by the regulars. The ambience was relevant to the Cape, if a bit outdated, our waitress had a zero interest in us and our order and the food was mediocre... More

Friendly bartender, pleasing settings, and tasty lunch and liquid refreshments. A good selection on the lunch menu - with the choice of bar seats or tables (until 3 pm).

We took my mom here last night for her birthday. I ordered an appetizer on the specials sheet: potato skins with bacon, blue cheese and caramelized onions. When I was served this appetizer, it was just plain old cheddar and bacon skins with about 50% if them without so much as a hint of bacon or cheese on them. The... More

Lunch here monthly and always very pleased at great food and friendly staff. Dinner was total opposite. Overcooked food, snarly waitress. Won't be back for dinner.

I'm staying in Barnstable for awhile and wanted to check out this year-round restaurant that caters to locals. Lots of seafood on the menu! Apparently they do a different mussels dish daily, so I chose the special on the day I went. Truly excellent. And can't beat their dessert speciality - amaretto bread pudding. I'll be back!

Had the three grandkids for lunch after a nice day at the museum in Brewster. We all had a great meal and the service was great.

The Dolphin Restaurant in Barnstable has been off my Harwich radar, because of my erroneous thinking “it’s too far away”. Well, it is not, but it took a Cape Cod Daily Deal to finally get me there with my daughter (Stefanie) and son-in-law (Bob). Surprise of surprises – it is a very nice restaurant with a comfortable setting/atmosphere, friendly staff,... More

The prime rib was like eating shoe leather and the baked scrod was tasteless. The overall service was slow . We were extremely dissatisfied and won't be heading back !
