Affordable seafood lunch during family vacation. Everyone, including 3 picky children, enjoyed the food. And the view was stunning.

My husband and I used YELP, really narrowed down our search to find the best seafood place in the area. We were led here. But honestly, we wouldn't go back. Their clam chowder was voted the best on the Cape. NOPE! Too thick, not enough...More

Stopped by late in the season (October) for a lunch. The location is right on the (small) Barnstable harbor so you can see boats. Some tables along the windows, others are further back. This can be a very busy place in season. Reservations are really...More

We stumbled across Barnstable on a day spent exploring Cape Cod. We dropped off the 6A and were delighted to find Mattakeese Wharf. We decided to splash out on the lobster roll and fried scallops. The portions were generous and they were both very enjoyable....More

8 of us had dinner last night. It was very good. Beautiful location. My sister and I had the lobster risotto. It was good but not as good as Bobby Burnes restaurant used to make. The homemade potato chips were delicious. Very good waitress.

Mattakeese Wharf is a SEASONAL (May4 to October21 ) waterfront restaurant on Cape Cod, MA since 1968. We serve fresh, local seafood including lobsters, steaks, chicken, and some Italian specialties. There is no better romantic sunset view while dining on the Cape than here at Mattakeese Wharf. See the sunset slideshow on our website with many photos contributed by diners. We are open late April through mid October. Mattakeese Wharf is located next to a whale watching boat so we are a natural destination after your day on the water with the whales. We offer a full bar and live entertainment during the summer season... a great place to watch the Sox games! We serve lunch and dinner 7 days a week plus Brunch on Sundays. We are open during the season(May 4 - Oct.21) from 11:30am until 9 in the evening. Check our website for info!
