When you’re visiting a picturesque location such as Cape Cod, any traveler would be remiss not to spend at least one meal eating against the stunning natural backdrop of either the cape itself or the Atlantic Ocean.

Few things are better than relaxing and enjoying a fresh, delicious meal by the ocean. But where to begin? Fortunately, we’ve compiled a short list of some of the best outdoor dining spots in all of Cape Cod! Read on to learn more about where to go for a delectable meal served with a side of gorgeous sightseeing!

Grab a Bite by the Ocean

Below, we’ve listed just a few of our favorite establishments for outdoor dining options with breathtaking scenery. We hope that you enjoy the food and fun at these places as much as we do!

Ocean House

The exquisite menu at Ocean House is only surpassed by the perfect view of the sea that the restaurant provides in its outdoor patio area. Serving the freshly caught seafood favorites on which Cape Cod built its culinary reputation, Ocean House showcases a New American style in its gourmet offerings, with twists like crushed avocado and tomato aioli on its fried Wellfleet oyster “spoons” and bruschetta with samplings of seafood on top.

Sesuit Harbor Café

Famous for its lobster rolls, visitors to Sesuit Harbor Café can enjoy New England classics in a picnic-style seaside atmosphere on the Northside Marina. This wonderful café, with its humble appearance, serves up breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a raw bar daily. Try the lobster omelette with a blueberry scone for breakfast, the clam chowder for lunch, or the baked stuffed cod for dinner.

Mattakeese Wharf

Dine right on the water in Barnstable Harbor! Whether you’re craving brunch, lunch, or dinner, this local institution is sure to please. Mattakeese Wharf is also renowned for its brilliant sunset views, making it the perfect spot for a romantic dinner by the ocean. Before or after, you can go whale watching on the nearby Hyannis Whale Watcher boat!
