Nice setting in Dennis, plenty of parking. Stopped for lunch. Daily special of Asian fish sandwich very good. Wedge salad had a bit of watery sauce and two pieces of bacon draped across. Would be nicer to have the bacon crumbled over the wedge before serving. Great service.

Thank mpd

We come to Scargo every spring and fall when we are at the cape. This is by far our FAVORITE restaurant and it keeps getting better and better. We dined there on April 8th. It was a busy night and what could have been a bad evening turned out to be another wonderful experience at Scargo. Our meals were taking... More

I grew up in New England and this is the kind of restaurant I remember! It is warm, cozy and charming. Add to that the food is wonderful and you have a great place to go back to over and over.

I've dined here 3 or 4 times and enjoyed each meal. Each time I've been with friends whom I've not seen in a while, so maybe that added to my satisfaction. I did enjoy the meal each time and would return. The atmosphere was to my liking as well and the staff was very agreeable.

We go to Scargo Cafe regularly and take advantage of their resident reward program. It is always a busy place so we try to go for late lunch or early dinner. We've never had an entree we didn't enjoy.. Menu is diverse with something for everyone. Service is always good.

Nestled on 6A on the historic side of Cape Cod the Scargo Cafe is a quaint New England charming restaurant complete with wood burning fireplace in the tavern and multiple small rooms for dining. The wide-planked wooden floors add to the charm and authenticity of the setting. The food was very good as we were seated for lunch. I had... More

Came here tonight with high hopes. Chose this venue very specifically. Sadly, we weren't overly impressed. While the food was just ok, ( scallops over cooked & haddock mushy ) the server was a zero. No introduction, no up sell, and no attention. The lack of presence of a bus person was obvious as our appetizer dishes & glasses stacked... More

Recently we were given a gift card for this restaurant, so we were pretty much forced into dining here. I had dined here a couple of times nearly 20 years ago and was disappointed for various reasons, so I never went back. As it turns out, nothing much has changed, and I haven't been missing anything, although there is now... More

My husband enjoy going to Scargo Cafe for lunch. They have a generous lunch menu as well as daily specials. Their salads are plentiful and you can make a meal by adding grilled chicken or grilled shrimp. My husband enjoys the sandwiches. A great place for lunch.

My husband and I have been here many times and will certainly be going back in the future. This restaurant treats their year-round clientele very well by offering all different promotions throughout the year. The food here is very good and very consistent. This trip I decided to order one of their specials. The waitress originally described the dish incorrectly... More
