The food and the atmosphere at The Pheasant was top notch. The clean interior enhanced the historic nature of the building. The variety of food on the menu was great. We had the bluefish pate which was more than enough for 2. The accompanying pickled...More

Our entrees were generally quite good, but overpriced. The fish "special" was $39 (no wonder they don't tell you the price unless you ask). The clam pasta at $26 was just OK, with mostly pasta and only a taste of clams. The wine list was...More

We started with the charcoal grilled skewers and the squid skewer was particularly good. Then my husband had the hanger steak and I had the burger which came with house made chips instead of the shoestring fries as stated on the menu but we enjoyed...More

Fabulous! We have been going to the original Pheasant for years and loved the homey vibe and food. We were a little worried when it changed owners but it has admittedly gotten even better! The menu is unique and pushes you to try new things....More

We have been eating at the Red Pheasant for over twenty years. It was one of our "go to places" on the Cape. It is under new management. I did not like the renovations of the porch. No crisp white table cloths or flowers. The...More

We ate at the Red Pheasant two years ago and loved it. We were pleased when friends suggested we eat there this year. We understand the ownership (and name) have changed, and it isn't the same place. Service was slow - thirty minutes between appetizers...More
