Nestled on 6A on the historic side of Cape Cod the Scargo Cafe is a quaint New England charming restaurant complete with wood burning fireplace in the tavern and multiple small rooms for dining. The wide-planked wooden floors add to the charm and authenticity of the setting. The food was very good as we were seated for lunch. I had... More

Came here tonight with high hopes. Chose this venue very specifically. Sadly, we weren't overly impressed. While the food was just ok, ( scallops over cooked & haddock mushy ) the server was a zero. No introduction, no up sell, and no attention. The lack of presence of a bus person was obvious as our appetizer dishes & glasses stacked... More

Recently we were given a gift card for this restaurant, so we were pretty much forced into dining here. I had dined here a couple of times nearly 20 years ago and was disappointed for various reasons, so I never went back. As it turns out, nothing much has changed, and I haven't been missing anything, although there is now... More

My husband enjoy going to Scargo Cafe for lunch. They have a generous lunch menu as well as daily specials. Their salads are plentiful and you can make a meal by adding grilled chicken or grilled shrimp. My husband enjoys the sandwiches. A great place for lunch.

My husband and I have been here many times and will certainly be going back in the future. This restaurant treats their year-round clientele very well by offering all different promotions throughout the year. The food here is very good and very consistent. This trip I decided to order one of their specials. The waitress originally described the dish incorrectly... More

We love to visit restaurants on vacation and this restaurant had the "best chowda" on the cape. The fish sandwich with the seaweed, had a unique flavor in the sauce that complemented the fish. The service was very good.

We Ubered over to Scargo Cafe on a Saturday night with no reservation. We had to wait about an hour to be seated, but the bar staff was super attentive as we waited. Our waiter (Steve) was also super attentive, even though you could tell that the restaurant was super busy. Our meals came out hot, flavorful and on point... More

Food: 4.5 Service: 3 Ambiance: 4.5 Value: 3 One of the better restaurants on the Cape if you ask me. It's pricey, but kinda worth it. It's also a great looking restaurant. Service wasn't good, but I think our waitress was new and didn't know the menu at all. Bad training if you ask me. But it didn't ruin our... More

Atmosphere, service and food excellent. Average pricing, but never disappointed with either lunch or dinner. Waited a bit for a table, but it's worth it! Make great drinks as well - recommend anytime and it's open year-round which is a plus for those of us who live on the Cape!
