If you are looking for simple outdoor beach food where everything is prepared freshly and with care, you are in the right place. My husband and I visited the knack twice and both times ordered the burgers. I especially appreciated the homemade lemonade and the...More

My wife and I tried the Knack restaurant for a quick bite to eat on our outing to the Orleans/Eastham area. Overall the food was very good and we would try going again. They have a variety of items including burgers, hot dogs, chicken nuggets,...More

Delicious seafood "shack" in Orleans. The food is definitely worth the wait. There is outside seating on their adorable patio. The fish sandwich and fish tacos were awesome!

This was a great find while coming through Orleans. Located just before the rotary, it is easy to get to before getting onto RT 6. There is no indoor access and your food is ordered and picked up at the walk up window. The menu...More

The Knack is a hamburger, fries and shakes kind of place. Limited menu but what it does is well done. Order and pick up at windows. Can get crowded with line to order and tight parking. Takeout great also.

It's like fast food only better. Food selection was great and delicious. Outside seating was convenient. The only thing they could do better on is parking. The lot holds maybe 8 cars (though there is parking behind the building, on the other side of a...More

Was sent here by a local we met while shopping in Chatham. I asked her if the "Mom and Pop" burger place was good-we were planning on going there and she said the burgers and food are way better at the Knack in Orleans--I'm always...More

We grew up here. We played on the Cape's beaches, we swam in the sound and in the bay, and we savored every hour of the late summer sun. Most importantly, we ate. Burgers, lobster rolls, clam rolls, hot dogs, onion rings, shakes, ice cream...We love the Cape's iconic food. We created the knack with one purpose in mind: to share the food that we grew up with, the food that hits the spot after a day at the beach, the food that defines summers on Cape Cod.
