I guess it's very difficult to win with this place. My last review was nothing great and I honestly thought we would give it another chance. My wife and I travelled from South Yarmouth to Dennisport for dinner. Google indicated the place was open from 8am to Midnight and they also had entertainment. I guess the bigger mistake was trusting... More

My family has been going here for several years. Each time never disappointed. Today was no exception. Christina who was our server was cheerful and helpful. My son has nut allergies and she made sure all he ordered , Chocolate Chip Pancakes would be okay for him to eat. As for the rest of us my wife had the Milk... More

I'm local to "The cow" in the summer. Always great food and drinks. Staff is a hoot. The view of the beach can’t be beat. I recommend you stop in to see for yourself. It is one of the most friendly places on cape cod. I try and go for breakfast as much as I can. You can’t make it... More

All kinds of find and OK.... Menu is better than you would expect and the quality is a little better than expected. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner all available. Service is always very good.

Have had good meals here throughout the years I have come to the Cape. Easy walking distance from my cottage. Food is always good whether bfast or dinner. Just a quirky wait staff. Too friendly, too forgetful, too side tracked... but never a bad issue. Great views. Great for sunset.

The views for sunset are definitely stellar, Cindy. While I'm so excited to hear that you had an overall great experience with us, I'm bummed that the service didn't pull all the way through for you. We'll definitely be taking a look into it. -Robyn Thibodeau, Owner More

Not sure why this restaurant isn't getting rated higher. My wife and daughter and myself all had a terrific meal here. The staff seemed happy, the food was ready promptly and the meal itself was probably the best platter of clams I have ever eaten, and believe me, I am a clam connoisseur. My family was equally happy. A little... More

Clam connoisseur? Saying we served up the best clams? Wow! We're truly flattered and are stoked to hear your family was just as happy with their experience with us. All that to say, the team and I appreciate all the kind words and can't wait to have you back sometime soon! Until then, Robyn Thibodeau, Owner More

We had lunch here on a Sunday afternoon. The place is located in a great location across from the beach. Indoor & outdoor seating. The service was good, wait staff was polite, although no one seemed overly happy. The chowder and homemade chips were the best part, really good. My husband enjoyed his fish sandwich. I had the chicken caesar... More

While I'm stoked to hear that you're loving the chowder and homemade chips, it's saddening to know that you felt the team wasn't as chipper as they could have been, Laura. We train our staff to be as courteous, friendly, and excited to help out all of our guests, so it's truly surprising to hear you experienced anything different. With... More

I have a cottage a couple of streets over from The Sailing Cow Cafe. I have been stopping in there for a few years just for drinks. I don't know how the food is. The location is great. Right across from the beach and when I first saw it after I bought my cottage I figured it would be a... More

Breakfast should always be the tastiest meal since it is the most important, Terri. It's a true bummer that you weren't quite feeling the Eggs Benedict.

Busy restaurant located across the beach with table seating inside and picnic table seating outside with table umbrellas with a view of beach parking lot with limited water view.

While it sounds like you enjoyed your overall experience with us, we're bummed that the pricing and taste of the coffee weren't quite doing it for you, Tony.
