The Dolphin strives to present fine dining and changes accordingly. I had raw clams to start which were exceptionally fresh and cold. My Cod entree with lemon sauce, capers and SDT was delicious. We were very satisfied except for the overpriced house wine.

Everything we ordered, from the clam chowder to the scallop casserole (fantastic) was fresh and expertly prepared. We ate at the Dolphin twice during a three day stay in Barnstable and will definitely be back on our next trip.

Found this place on Trip Advisor after we finished our wonderful Whalw Watching Cruise. It did not disappoint! Great food and service! The Chicken Quesadilla was amazing, the outter shell was very light and crispy, the chicken and cheese filling delish. The Lobster Roll that...More
