Located right next door, this classic spot is the place for seafood and loads of family fun. Where else can you nibble on a lobster roll, lick a premium ice cream cone, and play 18 holes of mini golf — all in one location. Stroll on over for an afternoon or evening of good times and great food.
Delicious reubens, fish and chips, and just about every kind of burger you can imagine. Friendly service and delightful sandwiches, salads, and specials are hallmarks of this stalwart eatery. Make sure you try the sweet potato fries.
A true Wellfleet classic, the Beachcomber has made every list and been voted every award you can imagine, including the Travel Channel’s “Twenty-One Sexiest Beach Bars in the World” list. Outdoors, the deck bar overlooks the blue Atlantic. Indoors, a renovated former U.S. Lifesaving Station caters to the whole family with lunch and dinner menus to please every palate. At night, Beachcomber shifts into 21+ mode and rocks the night away with live bands, local beer, and cocktails.
An Orleans local favorite. Italian-inspired food in a white tablecloth setting inside a charming former cottage. Creative cuisine and great wines-by-the-glass selection. Dinner reservations are a must.
A charmingly rustic brick-walled eatery, housed in a former blacksmith shop, Blackfish boasts refined seafood dishes and a buzzing tiny bar. The New American menu at this seasonal Truro bistro ranges from a luscious signature tuna Bolognese to a braised and brothy rabbit ragu – all made from local products.
American cuisine infused with Caribbean flavors, Brickhouse features specialties ranging from jerk pork and Caribbean-style curries to steaks, ribs, sandwiches, and more traditional seafood fare. The jerk salmon is a true treat.
Contemporary American fare with a French influence, Brine is a great choice for Sunday brunch. Or, visit in the evenings and try one of the restaurant’s signature cocktails named for Eastham’s bay beaches. If you are a fan of Montreal-style fries, do not hesitate to order the duck confit poutine.
Caroline's Bar & Grill
Locally loved Caroline's has warm hospitality and live music all summer long. Offering top-notch seafood and great vibes, Caroline's is good fun and gastronomically satisfying. Buck-a-shuck oysters available every day from 3:30 to 5:00 pm.
Casa Del Cabo
Family owned and operated, and extremely well-reviewed, Casa Del Cabo has fast become a local favorite. A blend of traditional New England and Latin-inspired cuisine, menu items range from a daily ceviche, to exceptional tacos, to more hearty dishes, such as swordfish or chimichurri steak.
Perfect for pre fixe lovers and special occasions, Ceraldi offers a seven-course, prix fixe, waterfront culinary experience. Menus change daily according to the bounty of the time, tide and fields. Course-by-course pairings of hand-selected, old world wines (house and reserve flights available) are available, as well as a soft flight pairing that showcases the fresh flavors the region.
Fairway Restaurant & Pizzeria
Comfort food with an Italian flair, this family-run restaurant is a relaxing place to kick back after a day at the beach. Features one of the best chicken parms in all of New England! Also great for hearty breakfasts before a day of exploration.
Located right onsite (although run separately from the hotel), this diner makes terrific pizza, burgers, sandwiches, and salads. The pizza is thin-crust, New York style, and addictive. Delicious pita wraps feature lamb freshly cut from the cone and more.
Hole In One Bakery & Coffee Shop
With lines out the door, you just know you can’t go wrong here! The donuts are fabulous. The bakery also features cupcakes, biscottis, hot and cold gourmet coffee drinks, and fresh-brewed ice teas.
This small taco joint features really good food all around and has a fun, "Baja surfer meets Oaxaca Day of the Dead skeleton" vibe. Kick back at the full bar inside or lounge in the outdoor seating if you order for pickup. Outside, you can bring your pet to lounge with you. Drinks are allowed outside, too!
Laura & Tony's Kitchen
Specializing in gourmet grab-and-go baked goods, salads and sides, Laura & Tony’s has fabulous fruit scones, coffee cake and cinnamon rolls, and offers an extensive menu of plant-based options for non-meat eaters.
With entrees ranging from ramen bowls to braised lamb shanks, this restaurant, as the name suggests, is a local fave. Featuring a rotating tap list of local and regional beers and a specialities board with interesting nightly options, Local Break never disappoints.
Mac's Market & Kitchen and Mac's Shack
A local legend who owns a series of restaurants on the Cape, Mac actually works in the kitchen at “the Shack” in nearby Wellfleet. His Market & Kitchen is only 2 minutes from Endless Dunes. The restaurants feature updates to old-fashioned seafood favorites—like his grandmother's cracker-crusted bluefish— and explore a world of flavors in a rotating menu. Nightly specials range from varied crudos and Peruvian-inspired ceviches, to sea scallops with green Thai curry. Mac's also offers great sushi and outdoor bar/seating. A whitewashed dining room at The Shack fills a 19th century house that was once a nautical shop.
Mahoney's Bar & Grill
Located in a converted 19th Century dry goods store in downtown Orleans, Mahoney’s warm dark paneling and low light create a fashionable vibe at this upscale eatery. The lively bar features a fun cocktail menu. Try the black fig martini.
A taste of France on Cape Cod, Chef Philippe Rispoli’s jewel of a bistro is beloved far and wide. Located practically next door to Endless Coast, PB has a neighborhood feel, inviting guests with the aromas of freshly baked bread and classic dinner cuisine. Trained in his native France, Chef Rispoli has worked with pillars of the industry like Michelin-star chefs Pierre Orsi and Paul Bocuse, and notables, such as Daniel Boulud, Michael Mina, and Charlie Palmer here in the US. His skills are on display in the quality of absolutely everything at PB Boulangerie.
The stuffie alone—a hefty quahog shell filled with spicy linguiça, kale, briny clams, and just enough breading—is worth the ever-present summertime lines at PJ’s. But the menu dives SOOOO much deeper, offering five fish taco variations, 15 different salads, an assortment of classic chowders, and fried seafood baskets galore. Make room for the Portuguese kale soup and do yourself a favor and DON’T skip the onion rings. They are hand-cut and breaded, then chilled overnight to intensify the flavor. Trust us, the calories are worth it.
Rock Harbor Grill
Warm, family-friendly tavern in Orleans featuring elevated brick-oven pizzas (think EVOO, pecan-smoked bacon, cheddar, and BBQ drizzle) and classic American dishes. The owner and head chef bring loads of experience to the table and it shows here.
The Block & Tackle
A beer garden. Succulent ribs. What more could you want from this excellent smokehouse a short drive to the north in Wellfleet? Well, the buttermilk fried chicken and the mudpie dessert for two! Plus, the Thursday trivia nights at this Cape Cod staple are legendary.
The lowercase in the name is part of the vibe. This laid-back and hipster modern roadside eatery offers terrific lobster rolls, hot dogs, fries, soft serve, and shakes. As they say on their website, “the food that hits the spot after a day at the beach and defines summers on Cape Cod.” All crafted by two local Orleans brothers.
The Wicked Oyster
Candlelit and lively, The Wicked Oyster features fresh fish from local waters and shellfish from nearby flats, but also shines with fine cuts of meat and a juicy burger. A welcoming staff works hard and patrons truly feel taken care of here. If you are looking for a hearty brunch while out and about, The Wicked Oyster is the place for great egg dishes and hearty homemade homefries.
Casually elegant with a lovely dining deck to catch the evening’s ocean breeze, Winslow’s Tavern features an impressive and diverse wine list that includes organic and biodynamic options. Everything on the menu is superb, but an Endless Dunes team favorite is the grilled octopus, with parsnip puree, kimchi’d red cabbage, and pomegranate.
