Hi There, Our apologies for any confusion regarding the cash discount program. The cash discount program is an incentive for guests who pay with cash. As you know paying with cash eliminates credit card processing fees, therefore we offer a flat 4% discount on bills...More

For starters we had the marinated olives, grilled carrots, and the shiitake mushroom skewer. Very nice. Wife had the clam pasta and I had seared scallops. Excellent! We’ll be back!!!!

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 are sorry to hear you did not enjoy the Chequessett chocolate parfait. Lemon and chocolate are actually a very common flavor pairing. Beyond basic vanilla, chocolate goes well with almost any fruit flavor. Citrus flavors, like orange and lemon, are most traditional, but even...More
