Late night dinner on Lower Cape in the winter

Does such a thing exist. Not terribly picky since I imagine there aren't many options.
I know the Land Ho serves until 10:00 but I might need later.

  1. I cannot imagine anywhere up that way serving late other than possibly Double Dragon or Hunan Gourmet. Call ahead. It's nearly impossible to order pizza after 9 for goodness sake. :)

    1. If memory serves, Lost Dog Pub in Orleans, although nothing special, serves dinner until 10PM and apps and pizza until midnight, year round. Again, may want to call to confirm as it's been a while since I've been there.

        certainly no expert but what about the old jailhouse restaurant in Orleans. haven't been in many years but it use to serve late at night. went there many years ago after going to academy playhouse. had friends who acted there and we'd meet them there afterwards for dinner. admittedly many years ago but they might still.

          Chauncey19 I was there a few years was mediocre at the very best....Mahoney's??

          1. re: phelana

            Mahoney's web site says they serve food until 9 on weekdays, 9:30 on weekends.

            Agree with Jailhouse Tavern. Not very good.

      2. Yardarm in Orleans serves til 10- it's our go- to for a later dinner- and beats the next closest option, Hearth & Kettle, by a mile!

        1. yes it was many years ago that i went to old jailhouse and really don't remember the quality of the food but it did serve late back then. Personally I have no reason to go their as friends no longer are on the cape nor do they act at the academy. But it did serve late which I thought was point of this thread.

            And Jailhouse is also much better than Hearth & Kettle, IMHO. For the 1st few years we were going to the Cape, the Jailhouse was a regular stop, and although the menu is dated, and there is nothing particularly "houndish" about the preparations, the food and service are decent, at a decent price.

              Thanks for the recs! As it turns out The Land Ho serves until 10:00 but ended up eating earlier in P-Town @ Fanizzis. Nice place, great salmon, chowder, service and wine.
              Will be back!
