Cape Cod, Here We Come!
It's been too long. Our Zagats is ancient and useless: we are staying
in Orleans this time. My focus is the usual run of local seafood: oysters, clam roll,lobster, chowda; hubby more of a landlubber.
Not looking for fancy: what can you suggest, open for just before Memorial
Day? Have car, will see a lot of the Cape in 5 days. Anyplace new for us to try?
Thanks much, from a Philly CH.
If you do a search, you will see many recs(including mine) for the Cape (my recs are Mid- Outer Cape. Look for posts by CapeCodGuy and phelana - the are both excellent sources of info. We are regular (several times per year) Cape visitors, and have our favorites that we return to again and again, but also try new places.
We're year round residents in Eastham. These are our regular go-to's ( some seasonal, all open now)

Not Cape Cod ish BUT great...Karoo Restaurant in Eastham, hands DOWN..worth the wait...very unusual...Down in North Chatham 323 North has 99 cent oysters: http://www.323north.com/
I love Joe's Bar and Grill for music and dancing. My friend loves the food. Beacon Room has been very good in the past.
I would rarely recommend a pub, but I really enjoyed myself at the Yardarm. Good pub food and friendly down home service. It's crowded for a reason.
