This place is amazing. The food was delicious. We were going to the Cape Playhouse right across the street and were a bit concerned that we may be late because we were stopping to eat so close to show time. The food came very fast...More

I absolutely love their Seafood Strudel. Flakey pastry wrapped around a delicious seafood filling with two giant shrimp on top. The burger with the béarnaise sauce was to die for. I enjoyed it more than a lot of steaks I have eaten. So moist and...More

My husband and I come here every year when we’re on Cape Cod. Scargo Café offers a homey atmosphere with delicious food. We recommend the clam chowder, old bay wings and the glazed salmon over risotto. Wait staff was friendly and accommodating!

I can't tell you how disappointed that our server informed me that the Shrimp Scampi and Polenta is no longer available. I had my heart set on it. However, the spinach and chevre salad was as enjoyable as anywhere else I've had it. And the...More

Very nice restaurant for a quiet dinner with the wife. An excellent menu makes it hard to choose but regardless of your choice you'll be satisfied. Never rushed, Scargo offers a great chance to relax and enjoy dinner.

Brrrr... such a chilly review! But I completely understand. My apologies for the AC temperature. For over 11 years we had no Air Conditioning at all and our open windows just allowed the cool breezes in. Warm or cold, it wasn't in our hands. Those...More

You got me there. I saw several families with young children dining there but I didn't notice if anyone was having burgers. Their menu is on the Net just Google Scargo Café to check out their offerings...

A traditional, Tavern and Restaurant with wood paneled walls, open fireplaces and an outdoor covered deck for al Fresco dining during summer. The fare includes guest favorites such as roasted rack of New Zealand lamb, and seafood strudel (a seafood blend baked in pastry) with Newburg sauce. Lots of fresh local seafood and oysters. Many more seafood entrees, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, chicken, pasta selections, and their truly famous version of Grapenut Custard.
