  1. Have you done a search? Crab isn't really New England's thing. Ok, I haven't been in years and years, but Pate's in Chatham used to be thee steak house. I like Vining's Bistro in downtown Chatham, and Joe's at The Barley Neck Inn in Orleans (on the road to Nauset) has good steaks too. Seafood is everywhere from shacks to fancy.

      Everyone will no doubt recommend Brewster Fish House. Mom was a HUGE fan but had a lousy lunch recently. That is unusual. I like the Beacon Room on Skaket Road Orleans or nearby across the street down a bit, Abba. Forget Jailhouse, please.

    2. We've always loved the food at Land Ho in Orleans. My mouth waters when I think of their steamers.

        Fer, I have not eaten at "the Ho" but when I worked in Orleans it was the local watering hole. Might be a fun place for Barbarella to go for just that ...

          .....or for the kale soup.

      2. In Orleans, try Mahoney's Atlantic Bar & Grill on Main Street http://www.mahoneysatlantic.com/
        Joe's at the Barley Neck Inn, Sir Cricket's Fish & Chips for excellent and reasonable fried seafood, and Abba for truly fine dining, with an Israeli-Thai twist.
        Go to Arnold's in Eastham for a true clam shack experience.
        Brewster Fish House in Brewster for the best, most consistent fish on the Cape; it is very small, so go early or expect a long wait.
        Cape Cod is not steak house country, however, though it is possible to find good steaks, but seafood is the local advantage. Some meat-eating friends in Dennis are very fond of the Red Pheasant Inn.

        Others like L'Alouette Bistro in Harwich http://www.lalouettebistro.com/
        Good seafood is widely available at many price points and locations, though.

        The Yardarm is a favorite Orleans standby with the locals

        1. We loved Brewster Fish House!

            The wonderful folks who run Brewster by the Sea, our favorite inn on the planet, have spent the past year or so revisiting every restaurant they recommend to their guests. They concluded that Brewster Fish House is their overall favorite. We had dinner there last month and were not disappointed.

          2. Brewster Fish House finally has a website: www.brewsterfish.com.
            It really is an amazing restaurant.

            1. Land Ho is great fun, and the kale soup is spectacular, the fried oysters very good, as are Sir Cricketts by the rotary. The Nauset Fish Market (next to Sir Crickett's) does the best lobster ever cooked for take-out. Arnold's has great raw oysters. The Wicked Oyster in Welfleet is a bit of a hike, but it's terrific, one of my favorites!

                The Orleans Inn will give you a terrific view, a Scottish-Irish band on the weekend and good basic Cape food. The family that owns it runs it and one and all are very nice.
