Dan Cutrona Don’t-Miss Dining

For truly special Cape Cod fare, the Red Pheasant Inn on Main Street is a fine choice year-round. With classic old-fashioned ambiance in a New England inn setting (including dining by the fire in the winter) and superb cuisine (terrific game dishes, delicious local fresh fish, Cape-grown vegetables and more), this well-regarded Dennis delight never disappoints.

The outdoor Sesuit Harbor Café, open seasonally on the bay side of Dennis, literally sits right on the harbor. The lobster rolls and raw bar get rave reviews. Find a picnic table—and bring your own alcohol if you’d like—and relax as you watch the boats go by.

Point of Interest

The 1736 Josiah Dennis Manse Museum, a saltbox home for the town’s first minister and its namesake, is open to the public during the summer. It was purchased by the town in 1967, has since been fully restored, and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A maritime room with a diorama of a shipyard is among the highlights of the home’s interior, along with a showcase of artifacts from the heydays of clipper ships. There is also a 1745, one-room school house on the grounds.
