Cape Cod Recommendation Needed
- phelana Dec 26, 2010 08:26 AM
My buddy is being deployed for the mountains of Afghanistan and is coming to the Cape to take me to dinner when I get back from Bonaire. Typically we eat in his "hood", New Bedford. He is meat and Potatoes but we have managed to find common ground at a few places in NB. He asked me to pick a place mid Cape for our dinner date. He loves 99 (ughh) but is open to suggestions. He does not do ethnic food at all or pizza. A great burger place would be cool. I don't eat meat. Anything come to mind? Hyannis to Dennis please any price range.
Out there, kinda. But, what about the Brazilian Grille? I only enjoy the soups, salads, and veg. options while the rest of "mine" enjoy the full experience. Seems like a fitting send off for one of our finest.
P. S. We are also enjoying a great time lately at the Black Cat for another day's discussion for Cape 'hounds.
Best to all year-round Cape 'hounds for a wonderful 2011. I am just tucking into my Winter edition of Edible Cape Cod while the Patriots play and the snow flies here in D'Port.

Yup Brazillan Grill should do more then satisfy; however, I believe you have a "special occasion" here so I'd suggest the Regatta of Cotuit. The Regatta will satisfy the meat lover in him and the veggie lover in you and end with a great memory for both of you. Best wishes to him. Happy New Year to you both.
ccg: I recall you writing that the Seaside Pub, across from BG, does a great burger and has a good and comprehensive menu.

Afar, Although I've been to Seaside Pub on several occassions for a burger and a few apps, there is something a bit oft-putting about the place. It's rarely busy, and it's not unusual to be the only party there. The co-owner chef, however, seems to always be present so the food has always been quite good. Upscale pub fare is the bet way to describe it. I guess it's the room and usual lack of patrons that I find uncomfortable.
Phelena's list looks like a good one for her purpose and may God Bless our Soldiers indeed.
Old Sheas is a nice quiet, dark, homey place with lots of menu options. You'll all be happy, and its not as corporate feeling as BBC.
Totally agree with hzp on O"Shea's in Dennis, link: http://www.osheasoldeinne.com/

Regatta has a great bar, it's comfortable for all sorts of folks, unpretentious and neighborhood-like. The reason I like Regatta now is I find I can dress down and be completely comfortable. But, still, I do get your drift.
I recently went to the Black Sheep Bah & Grill in Yarmouth Port - great burgers. I had a blue cheese and bacon - and they didn't skimp on either. My friend got one that came with gravy - both were excellent. And their fries are great too.
The place is a very casual bar, complete with keno. The regular menu is available online http://blacksheepcapecod.com/ but for some reason not the burger menu. The burger menu is about 25 different burgers includin veggie, turkey and tons of ground beef options.
