Restaurants in Cape Cod

Expect to find plenty of fresh seafood on the menu at Cape Cod restaurants, where visitors will delight in the assortment of fresh clams, lobster, tuna and oysters served at fine dining establishments and humble clam shacks alike. While you’re in Cape Cod, don’t forget to order New England’s signature clam chowder and lobster bisque; visit the Chatham Fish Pier Market in Chatham to sample fresh fish right on the waterfront, served cooked into a bisque or chowder or offered up raw in sushi hand-rolled on the spot. Settle into a picnic table with your feast to watch fishermen unloading their latest catch, likely headed straight to another Cape Cod restaurant.

Some of the best restaurants in Cape Cod include BlackFish in Truro, which combines fine dining with the locavore ethos in dishes like rabbit ragout and blackberry bread pudding; Bistrot de Soleil in Hyannis, which prepares fresh local ingredients with a Mediterranean flair for a menu that offers everything from wood-fired pizzas to filet mignon; the Mews Restaurant & Café in Provincetown, a martini bar beloved by locals that offers two distinct dining experiences – a downstairs dining room offering tuna sushi and rack of lamb, and a casual café setting serving excellent bar food like juicy Angus burgers; and the Brewster Fish House in Brewster, a low-key spot famous for its sweet and meaty lobster bisque.
