The Ebb Tide Restaurant

There are five rooms to choose from that have been added over the years, where you can enjoy entrees like the fresh salmon fillet sautéed with pecans and a maple glaze, or the sautéed milk-fed veal with lobster & asparagus, finished with Béarnaise sauce.

The Breakfast Room
Address: 675 Main Street, West Dennis, MA 02670
Phone: 508-398-0581
The Breakfast Room is exactly what it sounds like it would be. This casual breakfast diner in West Dennis is just the place to start off your day. It's a family friendly breakfast diner with a kids menu. Go ahead and build your own omelet, or if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, give the Cranberry Walnut Pancakes a try. The menu goes beyond breakfast so it's a good choice for casual Sunday brunch. This comfortable, low key, down home breakfast joint is a perfect beginning to a lovely Cape Cod day.

Oyster Company Raw Bar & Grille
Address: 202 Depot Street, Dennisport, MA 02639
Phone: 508-398-4600
At the Oyster Company Raw Bar & Grille you will find a semi-formal dining experience ready to handle your lunch or dinner cravings. Try the Fried Oysters platter, served with sweet potato fries & coleslaw or the balsamic chicken roll-up evening sandwich if you're there for dinner. There's a children's menu but depending on your kids it's either perfect or eye-roll inducing. The kids menu consists of the chicken fingers/burger/mac n cheese, grilled cheese choices. But if your kid enjoys eating "real food" then he/she will probably be eating from the adults menu anyway. Head down on Thursday Evenings to enjoy live music with Chandler Travis or Sarah Blacker, and soon enough they will be open on Sundays as well.

Expect an intimate and enjoyable fine dining experience at this restaurant with an ocean front view.
