Osterville Fish Too
Address: 275 Mill Way Barnstable Cape Cod Massachusetts 02630
Phone: 508-362-2295
Osterville Fish Too is a Cape Cod restaurant and market. They might call themselves a restaurant but I affectionately call these kinds of restaurants fish shacks. A fish shack is a no-frills place to get extraordinary seafood prepared in a simple and straightforward manner. Summer in Cape Cod is not complete without visiting a fish shack. And if you're in Barnstable then be sure to visit Osterville Fish Too, right on the harbor. Features patio and deck dining. Osteville Too offers a traditional fish shack menu of lobster rolls, scallop rolls, and clam strip rolls plus boiled lobster, steamers, mussels and various fried fish. And like most east coast fish shacks it also offers non-seafood fare such as chicken sandwiches, hamburgers and hot dogs. Osteville Fish Too is open:

  • Monday through Thursday 10am to 8pm.
  • Friday. 10am to 9pm
  • Saturday from 10am to 8pm
  • Sunday from 11am to 7pm

Regatta of Cotuit

Phone: 508-428-5715
Located on the site of a 200 year old mansion, The Regatta of Cotuit offers candle lit dining rooms for a memorable dining experience. They also offer a more casual area called the Tap Room where you might hear live jazz on certain nights. The menu is heavy on refined interpretations of local seafood dishes but there are ample selections of non-seafood dishes for those who have a yearning for seared filet mignon, buffalo tenderloins, or duck. For those who can't make up their minds they also offer a veal and lobster plate. The Regatta of Cotuit has received numerous awards and good reviews ranging from Zagat to AAA to the Boston Herald. Check out the Regatta of Cotuit sample menu and place this fine restaurant on your dining shortlist if you are after a romantic and "grown-up" restaurant experience or a more casual but refined experience in the Tap Room. Reservations recommended.

Wimpy's Seafood Cafe and Fish Market
Address: 752 Main St., Osterville Cape Cod Massachusetts, 02655
Phone: 508-428-6300
There are nights when you don't want to have your dining experience redefined. Some nights it's all about straightforward American food iand an early bird senior citizen discount. If that's your itch then get it scratched at Wimpy's Seafood Cafe, a locals favorite that features comfortable tables and booths and nothing so fancy you have to ask your waiter for a menu translation. Offering classic New England surf and turf with a side of Italian-American favorites, Wimpy's is a great place for the entire family. It is open for lunch and dinner. Have your fill of scallops wrapped in bacon, fried clams, Tuscany Bruschetta or some Philly cheesteak spring rolls. You'll find traditional New England fried seafood dishes as well as Italian favorites like Chicken Picatta, Chicken Marsala and Colorado Lamb Chops. The menu is wide ranging, there is literally something for pretty much everyone. It's not upscale, but it's not downscale either. It's in a comfortable middle area. They also offer take out.

Centerville Pies
Address: 1671 Falmouth Rd (Route 28) Centerville Cape Cod Massachusetts 02632
Phone: 774-470-1406
Featured on the Oprah Winfrey show, Centerville Pies has become a destination of sorts and demand for their famous pies has grown. They cook a limited selection of both savory and dessert pies. So in addition of regular dessert pies you may find chicken pot pie or meat pies on the menu. Because of demand you may do well to call your order in ahead of time.

Papa Gino's Pizza
Address: 1600 Falmouth Rd #105 Centerville Cape Cod MA 02632
Phone: 508-778-5500
This is a chain pizzeria. Sometimes a chain pizzeria is what the moment calls for.

Cape Cod Chicken
Address: 1671 Falmouth Road Centerville Cape Cod, Massachusetts 02632-2944
Phone: 508-771-1302
Located in a strip mall, this small fast food restaurant offers rotisserie chicken on the go. If you want to have a picnic out on Centerville beach or at a kettle pond, this is a good place to pick up some good food to take along. People tend to overlook spots like this but in my opinion these kinds of restaurants are excellent choices for to-go food that will taste good on a picnic.

Barnacle Snack Bar
