The Outer Bar and Grill is one of two restaurants at the Wequassett Resort and Golf Club, one of the few five-star resorts in Massachusetts. The waitstaff is mostly young women, all friendly, some from Macedonia and other European countries. My server was Monika, who couldn't have been nicer. Every table has views of the ocean, and the food was delicious.

Great waterside location for cocktails and/or food. Pricey and parking can be a challenge on busy weekends (also expect to wait for a table if you're not staying at the Wequasset), but on a nice night it's well worth it. There's music on the patio certain nights. Bring bug spray unless there's a breeze or you're sitting inside. Menu is somewhat limited, but food decent.

We visited the Outer Bar and Grill for lunch yesterday. It’s a beautiful spot with amazing views. Our server Maureen, was so kind and attentive to our two children. The food was good with the exception of the gazpacho which was too thick. It was sort of like eating salsa. The fish and chips and grilled swordfish were delicious. At the end of the meal Maureen showed up with toy lobsters for the kids. They were delighted! And she took the gazpacho off the bill even though we did not request her to do so. We will definitely be back. This place is so much better than anything at Chatham Bars Inn. It’s my new favorite spot at this end of the Cape.

We just visited the Outer Bar and Grill and thought the food was very good. The service was great. We had a very nice server. The grounds were very nice and clean. The view was AMAZING! We would definitely go again.
We were not staying at the resort but the rooms from the outside looked very nice as well.

This is the perfect outside dining spot. You cannot make reservations and they take resort guests first but if you can get to the Outer Bar to start out with a drink and then a table overlooking the water, it all adds up to a perfect summer dinner experience.

The menu is limited but with good options like fish tacos with either cod or swordfish ($26); terrific lobster roll with side salad, pots of muscles with linguica or clams with a wine and cherry pepper broth, fired whole belly clams etc. The menu is exactly what you’d expect or want in a casual summer dining location! BTW, the website is nit taking my rating for service - A+ David was terrific!; food excellent; value good.
