“Best Lobster Roll - Great scenery”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

I read about this place on-line before we went to the Cape. I decided I would be really disappointed if we didn't try it. We went on a Saturday night about 6pm and the place was packed so we decided to leave. We came back the next morning (they have breakfast). Not nearly as many people. You CAN get a Lobster Roll for breakfast if you want to. It comes with home fries. It was the best lobster roll I have ever had and I have had MANY. Living in NH and going to Maine every summer you try many Lobster Rolls. This one is the best hands down!!!

“Loads of fun - and Delicious!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

We found this recommendation on Trip Advisor - it was wonderful. The lobster rolls were out of this world. It was a beautiful day, there was no wait (it was lunch time) and the staff was very friendly. It was a little hard to find, but our persistence paid off. Casual and fun atmosphere. You don't want to miss the Sesuit Harbor Cafe.

“There's usually a line, but worth the wait.”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

This was our first visit to the Sesuit Harbor Cafe. It is off the beaten path in a marina in Dennis but not too hard to find especially with GPS. They advertise "World Famous Lobster Rolls" as their specialty, so my wife and I went for them, being big lobster fans. There was about a ten minute wait to get in, but the line moved quickly and it was well worth it. We ordered and paid (cash or check only) and went outside to find a picnic table to eat at. By the time we were outside, our server was there with our order. Fast food lobster rolls, who'd a thunk it? The rolls were delicious with lots of claw and tail meat and not too much mayo, and the fries were nice and crispy. The views of the marina were delightful, but I wouldn't plan to go on a rainy or really windy day because most of the seating is outside. I've had lobster rolls all over New England and these were some of the best. I would say this is a real Cape Cod treat, not to be missed.

“Great Old-Fashioned Cape Cod Experience”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Beautiful setting over-looking Sesuit Harbor. Boats pass by as you eat while sitting at the outdoor picnic tables.This is an awesome place to bring a family for a casual dinning experience. On the down side (the only one) lines can be quite long especially at dinner hour. My grandson loves their steak tips although they are best known for their wide variety of fresh seafood. The lobster roll is excellent, large and super fresh. Get to know some neighbors while eating or waiting in line. Not easy to find but worth it!

“Not to miss Cape Experience”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Sesuit Harbor Cafe is a gem. It is not that hard to find as other reviewers have stated. The have improved the signage and parking recently. GO EARLY for dinner (4:00-5:00ish) --unless you want to wait in a long line. The line can be very long, but it moves fast. We've been going here for the past 7 years and they have really improved service over the years. It is BYO-so bring a bottle of wine or whatever you'd like to drink. The best thing on the menu is the lobster roll. It's full of chunky lobster with no fillers. The potato salad is delicious. We also like the hamburger and any of the grilled fish. Clam chowder is great too. HINT: If there are no tables, bring a few chairs and a blanket and you can sit in a sandy area leading into the harbor. You can watch all the boats go in and out. Our kid love going there and throwing rocks in the water.
