Captain Kidd Bar and Restaurant with all new menu and decor

The Captain Kidd restaurant re-opened last week after a major renovation with sparkling new spaces, a fabulous modern menu and all the same old charm.  Perched on the Eel Pond with great views over the water, the Captain Kidd is known as a world-class watering hole in the finest village on Cape Cod. Guests enjoy the dockside dining, many tables with killer water views, and classic old brass wood and marble bar area with an amazing mural depicting the pirate Captain Kidd painted in the 1930’s.

The Landfall

What could beat dangling your feet into the Gulf-stream water after a delicious seafood dinner? Probably not too much – the Landfall Restaurant sits right over the water and serves great fresh and local food from one of the best waterfront locations on Cape Cod. From lobster, swordfish, clams, scallops to juciy sirloin and many other choices – the Landfall serves it all.  This classic New England fare is great for all ages and tastes. The atmosphere at the Landfall is also totally classic Cape Cod. Just looking at the ceiling of hanging buoys and other shipwrecked treasures, then check […]
