Mashpee food recs

Hi All, My family will be vacationing in mashpee in 2 weeks and I would like to some food recommendations in that area. We are very familiar with the Raw Bar & have also enjoyed Siena (?) in the mashpee commons. We've got 2 young children but still like to eat well! Thanks in advance!

  1. Just west of Mashpee is the village of Cotuit. Exactly 1 restaurant in the village proper, the Kettle Ho. It's a locals' hangout, combination of boaters, builders, families early in the evening. The fish is fresh, and it's outstanding. Beats all the famous seafood shacks on the Cape. Tried it many times, consistent results. Stuffed Quahog good too. Club Sandwich, burger, fries were all better-than-average bar food.

    I'll second your vote for Siena. It's always consistently very good for the adults; kids always find plenty of things they like there too. They "get" the idea that adults don't always want to sacrifice their own dinners when they've got the kids. Staff is very nice and helpful.

    After those two, you might have to head towards Hyannis, but even there, there isn't much to be optimistic about. (I will now don my flameproof coat)

    1. I know this post is a year old, but I was wondering if Kettle Ho (from rec below) is still open and a good option? We are heading to Mashpee soon and have similar inquiries as the original post. Any updates? We'll of course hit The Raw Bar, but one can't live on Lobster rolls alone...(possibly I could, but not the hubby)
