It had been many years since we dined at Scargo Cafe. I was looking for some places to dine at the Cape and read some of the excellent reviews on Scargo. We dined there on a busy Wednesday night with another couple and all 4...More

Hi Mary, I was disappointed to read your review after hearing about it from my staff. I can imagine it must have been very frustrating to watch others be served while you sat empty handed. As a top rated restaurant, we certainly don't often invite...More

There were four adult family members dining st Scargo Cafe. From the cocktails to the excellent service to the devine food, we were all more than satisified dining at this restaurant. Would highly recommend to anyone on Cape Cod!

Went here for dinner with family on a Friday on September. Watch out as your GPS will probably take you to a different location. There three such addresses in Dennis. Food was good but the service was great. Everyone is super friendly and helpful.

We were greeted warmly, seated and attended to throughout with great service. I had some Dennis oysters to start and then the stuffed lobster. Fresh, perfectly cooked scallops on top of the stuffing. The rest of my family either had fish or cheeseburgers (my boys)....More

Went here a few weeks ago. Menu selection was fantastic - though food preparation itself was a bit underwhelming. Nice cozy, casual atmosphere.

A traditional, Tavern and Restaurant with wood paneled walls, open fireplaces and an outdoor covered deck for al Fresco dining during summer.

Many more seafood entrees, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, chicken, pasta selections, and their truly famous version of Grapenut Custard.
