Ways To Cape Cod ~ Restaurants ~ Like A Kennedy

While our life took us to live off Cape, we always look forward to visiting as often as we can…

No matter how many times you visit Cape Cod, there are always some new hidden gems that you can be discovered. But there are also some beloved, old restaurants to come back to.

Clam shacks and soft serve ice cream are Cape Cod musts; the area also has incredible high-end dining. Your inner gourmand will certainly be satisfied time and time again, but still, nothing ever gets too upscale on the hook-shaped peninsula.

Part of Cape Cod restaurants charm is its many dive bars and casual eateries. Getting dressed up for dinner isn’t really a thing around these parts and sneakers and shorts are almost always acceptable attire.

For our foodie family, eating good food is a bonding experience and we wanted to talk about the native yummy Cape Cod joints we have frequented visit over the years…

These are just some of our favorites…
