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

I always enjoy my visits to Scargo. The menu is varied and the quality of the food very good. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Even a lunch is made an event. I feel appreciated at Scargo.

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

I just had dinner at Scargo Cafe with a friend. Seating was fast, service was excellent and the food was up to the usual standards. I am never disappointed with a meal at Scargo. We each chose a demi salad which was the right size given the portion size of our meals. The salad came with a small oaf of... More

Somehow we end up here 4-5 times a year. After 3 years the menu looks very tired - nothing new except the tuna martini, a big hit. Genuinely smiley efficient service is a foundation of their offering. The food is good, but not great. The parking lot is always full.

We live on the Cape and Scargo is one of our favorite places to eat. Their hot beet salad is absolutely wonderful, among many other yummy dishes. The atmosphere and service are also very good.
