The Cape and Islands have a reputation for superior dining. From Buzzards Bay to Provincetown and across Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, the region’s bounty of great restaurants seems never-ending. Are you in the mood for blackened swordfish, pan-seared scallops, or a juicy steak? How about clam chowder, calamari or some cornbread served with maple butter? All of these and more can be found here, and in abundance.

And what better way is there to enjoy a fine meal on a summer’s evening than to do so overlooking Hyannis Harbor, Nantucket Sound or Cape Cod Bay? We at Cape Cod LIFE couldn’t think of any. Therefore, continuing a longtime Cape Cod LIFE tradition, we present the following list of 110 Cape and Islands restaurants that, in addition to the wonderful food on their menus, also deliver breathtaking water views.
