      From Chatham to Provincetown is the best part of the Cape as far as I'm concerned. We always enjoy eating at Moby Dick's Seafood on Route 6 in Wellfleet when we go to the Cape. They have the freshest and best lobster and clams that I have ever had and the owners are the nicest people you would ever want to meet. The Whitman House in Truro is also wonderful. It is located in an old house...quite lovely....and the food is delicious. For breakfast be sure to check out The Hearth n' Kettle in Orleans (they also have a few othe locations on the Cape). Nice place and great food.

      You are staying in a really beautiful part of the Cape. A few recommendations that we enjoy...Brewster Fish House...it is a small place so if you don't want a long wait arrive early. Not cheap but a very good meal.. Cooke's in Orleans which was suggested earlier on the board...excellent, casual 'clam shack'...I had a lobster roll which was generously filled with choice lobster meat...Sundae School ice cream in Orleans...went there a few times the last time we were at the Cape.

      Have a nice trip.

        1. One of our favorites is Vining's Bistro in Chatham. It is on the second floor of the building across the driveway from the Christian Science Reading Room.

          1. It's been a while, but I remember a (then) excellent restaurant in Chatham called the "Impudent Oyster". Good imaginative fare. Has anyone been there recently? Is it worth recommending to Paul?
