Boat accessible restaurants/bars on cape cod

Anyone know of any cape cod waterfront bars or restaurants that allow access by private boat? I think the Flying Bridge does, any others?

  1. Anywhere on Cape? Falmouth, Hyannis, Harwich, Dennis bayside, Ptown? It's a big get my point I'm sure.

      From the canal to chatham, southside

    2. Baxter's Boathouse in Hyannis (touristy, but I still go once a summer), maybe you can pull up to a dock at Sesuit Harbor in East Dennis, and there's a great breakfast/lunch spot there. The name escapes me...phelana will remember. It is super-casual, picnic tables and paper plates, but good food and the view is stunning. Too bad Thompson's Clam Bar in Harwichport is no longer. That was a great place to pull up your boat and eat.

        Sesuit Harbor Cafe is the place you are thinking of.

          Thanks, but I'm located in Waquoit bay, so getting up to the bay is a bit more of a hike than I'd like.

            Summer Rose is located at the Bass River Marina on the south side of Dennis. Can't vouch for the food.
            Baxters in Hyannis as someone else mentioned but the food's nothing special and it's top dollar (for clams and lobster especially). Also, Brax Landing in Harwichport, but again, the food's only so-so.

              Thanks CCGuy, Summershanty looks pretty good, nice raw bar menu.

      2. Have you tried the Chart Room in Pocasset? It's a very good spot, right on the water. I'm not sure how you dock just for a meal, though, so I'd call ahead.
