Ideas for South Yarmouth

my family and i will be visiting south yamouth for a few days in august. As a replant in texas i am looking forward to yummy dinners in the area. Fresh fish, good meats, perhaps a good bar. Looking forward to a few nice dinners with the family before heading down south. Any ideas would be appreciated! (we have a car so we dont mind driving to hyannis or other nearby towns.)

  1. If you are going to be in South Yarmouth and don't mind driving to Dennis, The Ocean House is always a sure bet. Great bar area and so close to the water you'll feel like you are on top of it! Food is excellent as well.

      I agree, Ocean House is minutes from S. Yarmouth. Great bar too. Roadhouse in Hyannis is said to have good meats. I love Rawbar for lobster and hear they have opened on Ocean St. in Hyannis so go there for sure and share one with a friend.

    2. try the skipper in south yarmouth. nice bar. and the yarmouth house in west yarmouth. the 99 is always fun, too!

        Both the Skipper and The Yarmouth House often make the lsits of "worst on Cape" or "Places to avoid" so I'd certainly avoid both. In fact, there's a few posts here from those who have been in the kitchen of the Yarmouth House who have said it's filthy condition is deplorable. The 99 is a chain that you could try anywhere in New England and is uninspired pub grub IMHO. Ocean House is one of the best and well worth a visit. Alberto's in Hyannis is terrific Italian. The Brazilian Grille is wonderful if your looking for something a bit different and want a meat fix. There's the new Raw Bar in Hyannis, next to the Ocean Street dock if you want the largest lobster roll to found anywhere on Cape. Enjoy!

          Sorry Joe, I gotta agree with Cape Cod Guy. Why come to a great spot with great dining and go to a place one can find anywhere (99)? My teen attended a Key Club/Kiwanis meeting at Yarmouth House and pronounced it HORRID.

      2. HI- Recently had a meal at the Grand Cru at the Cape Codder Resort in Hyannis ( Rt 132). Had the prime rib and it was delicious!!! A large, flavorful, most tender cut I ever had!!! It was pefect!!! Served with potatoe and veggies for 20 bucks. I love to eat and could only eat half of it , it was so large. Husband enjoyed his cesar shrimp salad and lobster bisque! Also had mussels for appetizer. They have delicious frozen drinks Cape Codder Special was my favorite!) . WE ate on the patio,,,,,perfect setting! You do not have to stay at the resort to dine there.
