Worst of the Cape?

CapeCodGuy | Mar 21, 2007 07:26 AM

With so many repeat posts about people's "favorite' places on the Cape, a few names that are on my 'definate to avoid' list keep popping up. What are YOUR most dreadful choices? Mine are:

Captain Frosty's-Dennis Small, overpriced portions of standard fried fare. I've read, you gotta try the lobster roll....small mayonaissey thing with a handful of limp fries and those dreadful clam fritters (errrr...flavorless dough balls). The clam plate's a bad joke. And someone once crowed about how great the ice cream is...c''s soft-serve!

Clancy's, Olivers, Captain Parkers: - To me, these all seem the same.....all bland and boring, consistantly mediocre, food. Not a great meal to be had at any. Sure the prices are cheap, but these are excellent examples of "you get what you pay for".

Baxters Boathouse, Tugboats. Yes, its nice to sit on the water and its surprising how few places offer this in the mid-Cape. But that's it. Bad food often served by bad waitstaff at often borderline ridiculous prices.

And for those who post about how great the chains are....Unos, Country Buffet, and Olive Garden....PULEEEZE! Don't get me started.

Hmmmm.....guess I must feel cantankerous this morning!
