Description: Reopening May 5, 2017. Mattakeese Wharf is a SEASONAL 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 from 11:30am until well into the evening.... depending on how busy we are, roughly 10-11pm.

“Good lobster rolls on the wharf”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

This restaurant was recommended by a local when we said we wanted to eat lunch outside by the water. It was fine, but a little disappointing when we sat on the covered deck that was sided with closed windows and we could only look out at the beautiful sunny day. Still, the recommended lobster rolls were fresh and tasty with very large portions. And it was nice watching the small boats come into the wharf, even through the windows. Service was very good.

“Fantastic lobster”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Book a table for when you get back from the whalewatching - that way you can hopefully get a great sunset view. Good service great food, table should have been fully cleared after the lobster before bringing dessert instead of only part clearing it. So a star lost on service.

“Excellent waterside restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

This waterside restaurant affords any diner a view of the harbor from any table. The four of us ordered the same sandwich, THE SHRIMP BLT. What a perfect seaside choice ! One of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten. The wait staff was very efficient and courteous. We did not need reservations and were seated by the window without waiting. We will dine there again on our next trip to Cape Cod.

“Great View horrible dinner”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

We have eaten at the Mattakeese Wharf for our anniversary every year for the last 5 years. We love the view and usually the seafood is very good. This last visit the appetizers were good the dinners were horrible. We had a 7:30 PM reservation and our table was not ready when we arrived at 7:30 so we went to the bar area for a drink. The guy playing the guitar was very good and we enjoyed the music while waiting for our table, short wait 20 minutes...
Stuffed quahogs were excellent as were the clams casino. My wife's baked stuffed shrimp tasted like iodine and our friend ordered it as well but ate it because he was hungry. the next day our friend became sick he thinks was from his dinner. I had the baked stuffed haddock it was just ok.
I have had better and our other friend had the baked scallops which she enjoyed.
I wanted the baked stuffed lobster but did not want to spend the $46...
The view is great and I will come back again hopefully will get a better meal...
