A great evening with good food and good company. Although listed as a Cafe I would say "Fine restaurant " The French onion soup was well made and a large helping. The Ginger Shrimp salad was a great main course for my friend and I....More

Chalky, filler-filled clam chowder, soggy puff pastry, bland salad under salmon. Maybe it was a bad night but the kitchen did not cover itself with glory. Table service above and beyond so due to her we'd try again. Parking lot is always filled so...

Three couples dined one evening and each had a different entree. Everyone raved about their meal. Service was very good as well.

It is okay. Clean, food is fine, just nothing special. Can be very, very crowded as the theater is across the street. Lots of specials and coupons, etc. Good value…just not for me. I would rather cross the street and go to Encore.

After a quick visit to the beach, we were looking for a place to grab lunch and literally stumbled upon Scargo. The food was excellent and the service was very friendly. Will definitely visit again.

We've never had a bad meal at Scargo Cafe and it was our first choice to take a friend out for their "last supper" while visiting us in Dennis. Even on a Tuesday evening in September it was busy so we were glad we made...More

A traditional, Tavern and Restaurant with wood paneled walls, open fireplaces and an outdoor covered deck for al Fresco dining during summer. The fare includes guest favorites such as roasted rack of New Zealand lamb, and seafood strudel (a seafood blend baked in pastry) with Newburg sauce. Lots of fresh local seafood and oysters. Many more seafood entrees, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, chicken, pasta selections, and their truly famous version of Grapenut Custard.
