Looking for Some Flavor, Outer Cape

alfresca | Sep 14, 2012 06:37 PM

Had lunch at Bookstore twice recently and it was not good..every dish was kind of tired, as was the ambiance and the staff..kind of worn out. The bartender poured so much hot pepper or tabasco in the bloody maries they were undrinkable. We also had dinners at Mac's Shack (forgettable) and the "under new management" Winslow Tavern (regrettable, despite glowing review in the Cape Codder). Ditto a recent disappointing meal at Blackfish. It seems like many of my favorite spots on the (Outer) Cape never, or rarely, change their menu during the entire season and by the end of the summer everyone on the staff, from the front to the back of the house is so bored and can't wait until they close..
