Mattakeese Wharf Seafood Restaurant on Barnstable Harbor

Mattakeese Wharf on Barnstable Harbor offers amazing harbor views and sunsets with a full menu of fresh Cape seafood! You can also enjoy live entertainment on summer weekends!  Open for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch  They open for the 2017  season Mattakeese Wharf Seafood Restaurant on Barnstable Harbor waterfront

Here are some of the reviews

This is one of my favorite places on the Cape! It reminds me of a smaller version of Thompson’s Clam bar. I have such fond memories growing up as a child and going there. The staff is so friendly the food is so fresh and The stuffed 2 pound lobster is a must the best I have ever had! We go every year for the views of the sunset and the lobster! Our B and B recommended this and it was one of the top places to go!

My favorite place on the Cape good food, service and the setting is great looking out over the bay, looking forward to going back soon.

So good will be back soon !  Fresh Oysters, crab cakes, lobster, cod & scallops

Best, freshest seafood meal! Friendly and very accommodating staff! Wonderful, romantic ambience! What more can you ask for??

We ate right at sunset which is spectacular from the view this restaurant has. Our waitnress  was fantanstic the entire  time. The lobster was prepared just right. The chilled raw platter was perfect. A bit pricey but that is to be expected on the Cape this time of year.

We’ve been coming here for special occasions ever since I was a kid. I brought my new boyfriend here for his birthday a few weeks ago, and we had a fantastic time. The ambiance is always classy yet slightly Cape casual for a nice restaurant. Preppy casual will do. There is valet parking so don’t forget cash to tip! When we arrived there was a bit of a late as we surfed on the tail end of the dinner rush, but once seated we were promptly brought water and menus. The view of the harbor is incredible especially at sunset.

Delicious chowder, great view, friendly service. Always an enjoyable meal.

We ate dinner there last Friday night. We arrived early and were seated early at a window table. Chowder was very good. We ordered two baked stuffed haddock dinners, two grilled swordfish and one broiled swordfish. The fish entrees were incredible…after a summer of dinners on the cape, we all said that these fish dinners were the best we had eaten this summer….obviously freshly caught and perfectly cooked with delicious sauces. Portions were ample. Desserts were equally good. Our waitress, Kendall, could not have been friendlier or more professional. Service was excellent. The atmosphere was great with live music. Best meal this summer! Prices were very reasonable given the location, service and quality of the food.
