Any must-haves/eats/trys on Cape Cod?

Anything at all, for any meal, any style, any price range. Thanks!

  1. Not likely to get much response here on such a broad open ended question. The Cape's a big place. Its a long 70 miles from Falmouth to PTown.

    1. I have one for you only IF you're a carnivore - Brazilian Grill in Hyannis. Authentic Brazilian rodizio, where they keep bringing the food until you tell them to stop. Their salad bar is great too - I live for their butternut bisque soup! Friendly, convival atmosphere, but you will need reservations, especially if you're there on a weekend - otherwise it's a 2 hour wait (and rightly so).

        I'll second the recommendation for the Brazilian Grill in Hyannis. It's wonderful! We mistakenly decided to give the Brazilian restaurant in Falmouth a try last year and I would definitely stay away from that one. We sat there for 45 min. without any food being brought around. The kids had already finished eating before the adults were offered any food, other than the salad bar. We ended up walking out after paying for the kids food and the price of the "salad bar only" and got pizza on our way home. A completely different experience than the wonderful one we had in Hyannis.

      2. It totally depends on where on the Cape you are, but we love Mac's Seafood and their full-service restaurant Mac's Shack in Wellfleet.

        1. My favorite is Nauset Beach Club (nicer place, great food) in Orleans.

          Land Ho in Orleans for good bar food and a local feel. Also enjoyed a good dinner at the Red Pheasant in Dennis.

          Have fun!

            He, fellow bear,

            We love the Nauset as a date night as well, and the Land Ho is great for a casual, well-prepared meal and a fun scene.

            We also really enjoyed the unique experience of Clem and Ursie's in P-town. Incredibly broad menu, really funky atmosphere and decor. You order the food at the counter, and they give you a number and bring it to you. Some fun inventive choices. You get your drinks (I remember beer and wine, not sure about a full liquor license) at the bar and pay separately. Fun scene.
