Description: 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!

Convenient lunch spot after the Whale Watch! Food was good but a bit pricey for lunch! Great location overlooking the harbor!

This was a fun place to eat dinner - food was priced well, had a nice view of the sunset and there was live music. Though "busy", it was very easy to talk to the people with me - and I met a few nice new friends as well.

Had a quick lunch prior to a whale watching tour. We were a little crunched for time, so it was much appreciated that we were seated and served in less than 45 minutes. Kudos all around for that. The food was average to good with the highlight being the clam roll; which was excellent and overflowing with perfectly breaded strips. Really no downside to Mattakeese. It probably won't blow you away but I'm certain it will not disappoint.

While on vacation in the cape, we always visit Mattakeese and have learned to make a reservation. Without one you will wait 30+minutes...With a reservation you'll wait 5-10 minutes. We made a reservation, we get there and within 10 minutes were seated. Waitress was knowledgeable and super friendly. Orders placed promptly and food arrived in about 20 minutes and this was on a busy Friday evening around 8pm. Food was good, fresh and hot. No issues with food or drinks. We enjoy going there and the sunset is great if you can catch it but I would recommend making a reservation a day ahead of time. Menu items are a bit pricy but we knew this ahead of time but it's still on par for a nice seafood restaurant like this. Would highly recommend it and will return again next year.
