We had a reservation and were seated right away. Food , drinks and atmosphere were great! Great service !
We have been to Mooncussers several times to sit in the bar, great bar, and Tapas. This was the first time eating in the dining room. The food was great, we still had the Tapas option and other choices. Charlotte served and she was wonderful, made a great wine recommendation and was very attentive. I would recommend Mooncussers for a quiet dinner for two or a party of ten.
Pleasant atmosphere,excellent server(Cheryl Handren), very comfortable,mushroom bisque,was my appetizer,wife had a ravioli (Tapa) with crab/Mornay sauce,both of us had Steak Au'Poivre,whch was excellent(a little too much peppercorns for wife) and a chocolate filled,chocolate round cake,with caramel and vanilla ice cream,also excellent.Drinks were well done and it was an enjoyable experience
Another great meal at Mooncussers!
Only disappointment was that we Ordered a burger medium and it came out rare
Another fabulous meal at Mooncussers! It is time to add some of the specials permanently to the menu! The short ribs (special) with spring vegetable and buttermilk mashed potatoes was fantastic! The mushroom bisque and orange/citrus crème brulee need to be permanent fixture too! So glad we made reservations - a necessity even in February, as this hidden gem is no longer hidden!
The carpaccio appetizer was outstanding as well as all our entrees. Had the parpadell with lobster scallops and shrimp it was extremely good. Our other party members had really good meals. The dessert was also really good homemade bread pudding and cheesecake was top notch. Will make a point of returning when back in town.
Service was attentive and ambiance cozy and relaxing. Was not disappointed in anything !
Great owners, warm, comfortable atmosphere, wonderful experience for my first-time visitors! They loved every bit of the evening - can’t wait for their next visit - they want to make it an annual event!
We have made this our favorite place to dine. The board specials are always worth trying! The owners always make us feel welcome!

Went for Valentines Day.
Have been there numerous times and have only once not been completely satisfied.
Our server Chris, like the rest of the evening, was perfect.
Can't go wrong at Mooncussers.
We've been here three times and love it. The food is unreal and the owners are very nice and accommodating.
We went to Mooncusser on Valentine's Day. Both of us had the specials that evening, lamb Hank and duck breast. The plates had a lovely presentation and the food was very good. My husband said his lamb was excellent. We finished our meals with a shared chocolate bread pudding, which was just a wonderful way to end the meal. So yummy!
Our waiter was great and helped to make the meal and overall experience very enjoyable.
Our server got things off to a great start. We had an early reservation on Valentines Day, and she was welcoming and enthusiastic about the restaurant. We both started with the hose special salad which was a creative ensemble of greens bound in a novel spiral cucumber slice. My shellfish was served over a medley of fresh vegetables and was done perfectly. My date had the grilled salmon which was also done well, crusty exterior and moist in the center. We will be back with Friends!
One Of our Favorites. Excellent dinning options, cocktails, an amazing burger. this is a must try in Harwich!
Loved the food our server was very helpful I had the wild boar shank it was delicious my wife had the duck infused burger that was amazing recommended to friends can't wait to go back
Celebrating New Years Eve a day early
Best restaurant on the Cape! As a Harwich High School graduate living in Atlanta, GA this restaurant exceeds all expectations. Creative dishes, freshest of food, awesome Cape Cod atmosphere. Get a table with Alex. She is awesome. Incredible service. One of my favorite places and an incredible wine list.
We always enjoy our meals here since they have a variety of small plates two of which can be put together to comprise a meal (or one will do for a small appetite). The selections are for the most part creative. The hamburgers are even great. Overall the meal isn't too pricey. We have had friends meet us here; they have said they would come back.
Have been here several times but not in the last year and was looking forward to the cozy tavern experience with very good food that I had had in the past. The tavern seemed to have lost its cozy atmosphere - lighting, tables, etc. - seemed to have been neglected. This place has the potential to be a great authentic tavern dining experience but they seemed to have lost the attention to detail. The service was friendly but lacked sophistnication - waitress literally put her hand on our plates when leaning across the table instead of walking around the table, and when we asked if the lights could be turned down she said no, then asked the bartender who did indeed turn them down. It was obvious the lights had been turned on to clean prior to dining hours and then left on - again, no attention to detail. The food did not quite live up to the menu which is very interesting - pork belly was rubbery, not succulent e.g.
I would summarize by saying that there seems to be an overall absence of oversight by ownership and I would suggest ownership get back involved in taking a hard look at the experience and training of staff, quality and consistency of the menu, and a fresh look at the decor. It's all in the details and this could be one of our favorite restaurants - otherwise we will move on and be disappointed in having to do so.
The food was fabulous!! The service, the ambiance was wonderful; cozy, inviting and delicious place, especially for a chilly winter night.
The food was fantastic and our server was knowledgeable and friendly.
Drambui mussels were excellent. This was the second time we enjoyed them. The braised special was a short rim and marrow bone with polenta and sugar pumpkin. The meat was tender but way too salty. The polenta made everything taste like grits and mashed potato would have been s much better accompaniment. The waitress told us it would be mashed potato and it wasn’t. The haddock was good but the sauce again too salty and overpowering. Had what the waitress said was bread pudding but it was some dry cake ball.
The food is outstanding. The size of the entrees was huge. I would recommend choosing tapas and sharing them or ordering tapas and one or two entrees for four people. I would appreciate the restaurant offering half-size portions. The waitstaff was very helpful and checked with the kitchen to see what options I might have that did not include garlic. The kitchen staff was very cooperative in accommodating my preference. Every one in the party was extremely pleased with the meal.
Delicious food and ambiance....will be back! Great find!
WE WENT TO MOONCUSSERS OFF-SEASON IN NOVEMBER. THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT AND WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND, JUST BEWARE THAT THE TAPAS ARE MORE LIKE FULL-SIZE ENTREES. WE'RE USED TO MUCH SMALLER TAPAS SO WE OVER ORDERED BUT ENJOYED EVERYTHING AND BROUGHT HOME OUR LAST TWO TAPAS FOR LUNCH!
Food was awesome! Best Cod I have ever had! It is an old and historic Inn converted to a restaurant.
Food and service were fabulous. Noise level was terrible. Too many tables packed into a large room.
We dined at Mooncussers three times this year and each meal was superb. We often stick to the tapas, and you can't go wrong there. But I finally had the steak frites last time and it was cooked to perfection, with fabulous fries. The very gracious owner always drops by to say hello. Highly recommended.
had a nice dinner at the bar. enjoyed the game meal which was wild boar and an amazing burger. drinks were very good with house made blue cheese stuffed olives.
Interesting, affordable wines, fresh veg/greens, great burger/fries, good service
This was the perfect place for a quiet evening, moderately priced food, friendly staff, and even a table side visit from the owner. The food was excellent and the presentation was lovely. We would definitely go again.
Mooncusser’s is one of our favorites and a stand-by for us. Excellent food, even better management. Never disappointed!
Pleasant evening in Tavern. Great atmosphere. Owner stopped by for a chat.
Recommended by the owner of Inn we were staying and was not disappointed. A real Cape Cod feel. Warm and inviting. Tables were separated enough to make it more intimate for you and your guest. My wife had the seared scallops and she was gracious enough to give me one ;^} and I had the salmon. Both meals outstanding. There was a mix of clientele including variations in dress, so coming in jeans was good. The owner stopped by to ask how everything was, so I always think that's a nice touch. We asked him what a mooncusser was ... You'll have to ask him. Great dinning experience!!
The food was outstanding as was the service, will definitely return
Another fun evening at Mooncusser's! Great tapas, great service.
The restaurant was extremely busy and a bit hectic as the waitress forgot to put in my appetizer and when she came out with a plate it was the main meal for just one of us. the other three main meals came out 10 minutes later
Amazing food and fantastic service by Noel. Will definitly go back next year when at the Cape.
Loved the food ! Great menu, really a rare find for this area.
