We went for brunch and I had the best lobster roll I've had outside of Maine. Definitely big, well made, great bun. Worth every penny! Nice view. Not too crowded even on July 4th weekend. Really a great place.

Beautiful sunset views on the water. Extremely crowded on a Saturday night. Music in the bar area. The food in the dining room is expensive for just average food but I always feel you pay more for the water view. Overall a very touristy but...More

The hostess was amazing to help us get a table on a crowded night on the weekend of the 4th, as we didn't have a reservation. Food was good, great service, and a great view.

We had great service which often makes all the difference. I suggest the crab cake appetizer follow by the fried calamari. Others at the table started with a not very creative Caesar salad and the excellent clam chowder. The baked stuffed shrimp and whole belly...More

Good food in a pretty waterfront setting. I had a fabulous lobster risotto that I swear had an entire lobster in it. The service was friendly & timely, but not "in your face." This restaurant is definitely worth a visit.

A great place at sunset with baked stuffed lobster that is worth the trip. After a few visits, I can't say much laudable about the rest of the menu, even after trying a number of dishes.

Although we didn't have the best weather, the view was beautiful. The restaurant itself is a bit dated, but for me...it's an old cape restaurant and just what we wanted. The staff was attentive and friendly and the food was good. We made a reservation,...More

There is no outside patio, it is an enclosed porch overlooking the water. Not sure about dogs; have never seen any there. However, if it is a certified service dog I do not think they can refuse. Suggest you call the... More

Reopening May 5, 2017. Mattakeese Wharf is a SEASONAL waterfront restaurant on Cape Cod, MA since 1968. We serve fresh, local seafood including lobsters, steaks, chicken, and some Italian specialties. There is no better romantic sunset view while dining on the Cape than here at Mattakeese Wharf. See the sunset slideshow on our website with many photos contributed by diners. We are open late April through mid October. Mattakeese Wharf is located next to a whale watching boat so we are a natural destination after your day on the water with the whales. We offer a full bar and live entertainment during the summer season... a great place to watch the Sox games! We serve lunch and dinner 7 days a week plus Brunch on Sundays. We are open from 11:30am until well into the evening.... depending on how busy we are, roughly 10-11pm.
