Awesome food! Great bar seating as well. The Pear Martini and Steak Frites were on point. Every dish around us looked delicious. Highly recommend - going to make for a great winter spot. We will be back!

The martinis list is diverse and boy are they strong ! We had a sampling of various appetizers before the entrees and none of them disappointed. The wagyu carpaccio was a favorite of 2 of us, the pork buns were the favorite of the other 2. And the cheese plate was substantial but had nothing left when we were done with it. The specialty pasta was also great, and we finished with good wine. We visit the cape annually and found this spot last year. This was our second time and we will definitely be back!

Everything great...food and service. Enjoyed charcuterie and salad with scollops. Only complaint was that the ratio of cheese to meet on the charcuterie was surprisingly small, but everything I ate tasted great!

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful meal here during our 4 day visit to Cape Cod. Relaxing atmosphere was made even better by our server, Cheryl, who recommended the scallops with the risotto. Both my wife and I couldn’t remember when he had better scallops. Thanks, Cheryl!!

Just met friends for dinner. Tavern was almost full and noisy at 6:45 on a Tuesday! Luckily we were seated at a nice size round table by the door rather than in the middle of the room, as we wanted to be able to chat with friends without screaming!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Mooncussers Tavern. It was the first time we ate dinner there and are planning on going back soon. We loved that we were able to order tapas if we didn't want a full dinner. But of course since everything looked so wonderful we ordered both! We weren't disappointed in the portions, which are quite generous, and the taste of each item was simply delicious. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We made multiple visits during our Cape Holiday. We were always greeted when we arrived and seated immediately. The food and service was excellent. Our favorites were the duck infused burger, the calamari, and the vegetable risotto. The valet parking was a plus also...friendly fast service.

This was our fourth visit to Mooncussers in the past 3 years. Usually, by the second or third visit, the restaurant fails to fulfill our heightened expectations set by a great first visit. Not so with Mooncussers. This time, we had 3 seafood tapas along with Wagyu beef carpaccio. Outstanding. The flavors combinations were exciting, the quality of the food was perfect and the service was attentive, without being overbearing. We noticed all the servers and the bartender were all adults, in their 40s or 50s. Professionals. No one called us "guys". Still recommending to friends and we'll be back on our next trip to the Cape.

We were seated promptly but they tried to put us in the dark bar which we declined. The salads were great, fresh and full of veggies. The burger was perfectly done and the frites were yummy. The risotto was creamy with a subtle flavor and the portion size was large. The chicken was also perfectly done and tasty. The beers seemed like they came in a smaller glass than a pint. The service from Ashley was friendly, fast and professional. We will be going back.

We were on holidays from Ireland last week and came to Mooncussers on our last night. The food and service was amazing! The owner came over to introduce herself and ask us about our trip which was such a friendly touch to our visit there. The food was divine. We will definitely be back if we return to Cape Cod.

It was our first time. The staff was very welcoming. The service was excellent. Our server Sadie was very attentive.
Drinks and apps were very good.
My wife had the fish., which she enjoyed. I had the steak frie. The steak was over cooked, not 8 oz as advertised. The sauce was so so
Maybe an off day. We will try it again.

Very loud, could not gear the waitress who had a very thick accent. Had to have her repeat everything constantly. The food was way over priced for what you got. Friend had the $46.00 Bison steak special, came out raw, sent it back. The other 3 of us were finished our meals by the time his meal came back. Would not recommend, there is a reason we got a reservation with no problem on a Saturday night on the Cape in August.
