Family Friendly restaurants in or around Hyannis?
Just started researching good eats for our upcoming trip. DH and I love great food but want to find restaurants that are kid friendly (we have 3 & 6 year-olds). Just read about Villa Roma's sign in another review and want to avoid that. My kids are rather well behaved but we want to go where we are welcomed . . .
Also, what can we expect summer crowds to be like? (It's been 15+ years since I've been to the Cape.) We plan to have early dinners, but are reservations still required? Is this summer any less crowded because of the economy?
Thanks in advance!
Really? They DO make one of the best burgers around, but the rest of the food is so-so at best and downhill from there. Unfortunately, many of the other "family" restaurants aren't much better. You could do Alberto's on Main St. Hyannis for a special night out. If they don't have a kids menu (I think they do) you could order them a side of pasta and side of meatballs. Cooke's in Hyannis is some of the best fried seafood on the whole Cape, but it's an order at the counter and they bring the trays to you kind of place. Very reasonable and fresh lunches too. Wimpy's in Osterville puts out traditional New England fare in a nice space and is a comfortable family restaurant not far from Hyannis. Palio's on Main St. Hyannis for very good Pizza and inexpensive pasta dishes. It's a pizza joint so no waitress service. Another fine dining option is the Ocean House in Dennisport. Again not sure if there's a kids menu but they do have pizzas and small plates. As to summer crowds...oh yeah, they're here! Perhaps the tourism is down somewhat Cape-wide due to both the economy and the horrible weather all summer, but Hyannis and vacinity is packed to the gills daily, mostly due to that very lack of decent beach and sunny days .
