Cape Cod restaurants nobody EVER talks about.

A recent post asking about the Duck Creek Inn in Welfleet got me thinking. There are many places here on the Cape that I never see any discussion here or by friends or family. Someone must frequent these places or they would be gone by now. Feel free to comment if you've been or heard anything on these. Or add your own to the list.

Anthony's Cummaquid Inn - I pass this place several times per week and never see ANY cars there, yet I know they are open. Outside a few suspected shill posts, the reviews on Yelp are less than stellar.

The Paddock - Used to love this place in the 80s but haven't been since. Back in the day was the gold standard for old school fine dining.

Pate's - see Paddock

The Ebb Tide - ditto

Trevi Cafe at Mashpee Commons -looks nice, never been

Kettle-Ho in Cotuit - Mostly a drinking joint? That's my uninformed impression

Copper Chimney in Hyannis - attached to the International Inn which is so creepy I'd never venture to try their restaurant.

Up The Creek -Hyannis - Again in the 80's this was the place for inexpensive home cooking. Today???

Tugboats - nice waterfront location. Haven't been since we were served spoiled chowder that had separated and the kitchen said it was our fault for letting it sit before we ate it. Wouldn't take it off the bill even though it wasn't touched. Therefor, our last visit was 15 years ago. Too bad, nice spot.

Anejo Mexican in Falmouth. I hear the radio ads. The menu looks enticing. The build-out lovely. Have never heard a peep about it.

Captain Linnel House - Orleans - see Paddock

Bramble Inn Brewster - Used to be lovely. No idea today?

Laurino's Tavern- Brewster: Went once. In 1977.

With 1,100 Cape restaurants and growing, I'm sure there are many, many others.
