Back for our 25th or so visit. Outstanding as always. Crowded bar makes it so easy to meet new friends and have a few laughs. Eddie, parking the cars smiles and says "45 minute wait". I say "no kidding, you have been saying that for the past ten years". He laughs knowingly. Into the bar I order and ask to... More

Had a beautiful Summer evening with a friend. Sat outside & enjoyed the warm breezes from the beach. Service was excellent & attentive. The food as always was perfect. The Antipasti salad is a traditional favorite and the small size is more than enough to share with another. The linguini & white clam sauce was delicious & just the right... More

The first person one encounters when visiting Gina's By the Sea, a charming Italian roadhouse on the beach in Dennis, is Edwin, the master of the car park. Always nattily dressed in neatly pressed button down shirt and khaki shorts, Eddie orchestrates the parking lot (a must or you can't stay), and delivers the news regarding table availability. A wait... More

We were staying nearby and were looking forward to getting to Ginas as it is only open Thursday to Sunday. We got a babysitter to have a special night out. We walked to Ginas from our place and were headed up the driveway someone, possibly an owner or manage emerged yelling at us to basically go away. "Were done here!"... More

Gina's is a great dining experience. Everything is too small, parking lot, Bar, dining room, kitchen, menu, yet it remains packed every night, I think it is the hospitality. Guests get immersed in the overall experience. You feel that you become part of a large noisy family. Danny Meyer would love it. Only open Thursday thru Sunday evenings, no reservations,... More

We tried to get there before 5pm "opening"but with 2 babies and seven adults we were 5 minutes late. No tables. But they nicely combined three tables that accommodated us outside. Great crusty bread. Good drinks. The scallop/bacon appetizer was outstanding if small. We had the veal parma and chicken parma and fettucine alfredo and sea bass, all plentiful and... More

I heard about Gina's by the Sea from a colleague and was excited to try it. You really do have to get there by 5pm (which is when the restaurant opens) to get a table. My family arrived at 4:40 and were seated promptly. The restaurant is quaint, and provides a cozy atmosphere -you feel like you are dining with... More

We have been coming to Gina's since it opened! Summer doesn't officially start until we've had a nice dinner here!On this visit I had the shrimp scampi and my wife had the striped bass special. Both dishes were amazing.....but we've come to expect that! The scampi had about 8 large shrimp cooked perfectly as was the pasta. The bass was... More

This place was awful! The staff was friendly expect for our waitress she kept rubbing her face and scratch her ears and head! I can't make this up it was flat out disgusting! The place is filthy inside and the food I wouldn't even give it one star. The apps (mussels,antipasto,garlic bread with cheese) were all decent but the main... More
