We had a wonderful dinner at Mooncussers while visiting Cape Cod for a wedding. The food was exceptional, loved the steak and the calamari. The wait staff was very attentive while we ate in the quiet dining room. The restaurant is charming and we highly recommend!

Excellent food & drinks. Great service, leaving us the time to enjoy our dinner and socialize. Fantastic interior, very cozy. We felt like being in a beautiful restaurant in the British countryside. We had a great evening. Thank you.

You can't go wrong here! The food is great, the building is quintessential Cape Cod, and the service is always good. The fine dining option is always a winner, but don't overlook the cocktail and a burger at the bar.

My husband and 2 adult sons intended to have full dinners but when we saw all the great tapas choices we ended up ordering about 6 -7 and shared so we all got a good sampling of what Mooncussers had to offer. The duck infused sliders were delicious as was the lobster fondu, mussels cheese plate, steak and egg and avocado/tuna tempura. We enjoyed all of our choices! Next we ordered the vegetable risotto with haddock and shared that too. Cooked perfectly! We were all pleased with that choice. The wine menu had good choices as did the martini menu. Three desserts were offered and of course we ordered one of each and shared. What a great time we had!!

Seated in the dining room which is a preferred location for me. Three of the four of us ordered the scallops with cauliflower and they were well prepared. I had the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Also delicious. Mooncussers is reliable for a nice night out with friends over a good meal.

Love the menu and ambiance at Mooncussers! It's a bit pricey, but if you want to treat yourself or someone special, it's the place to go. Wonderful menu, and their Crème brûlée is the best on the Cape. I highly recommend Mooncussers.

We finally tried Mooncussers after knowing about it for over a year. The food was great, the staff and owner were very friendly and engaged and the feeling of the place was just perfect. It has been added to our "must bring friends" list of local places, and we will become regulars. What a nice spot!

Very friendly proprietor and staff. The restaurant side has formal white tablecloths and comfortable seating with jazz quietly in the background. While the pub side is more cozy and dark. At last visit I had the duck infused Burger with a wonderful salad, and my husband the wild salmon with lentils. The the chai creme brulee was fantastic.

Great ambiance but the food was substandard. Shrimp and Tempura appetizers lacked flavor. Steak frites strayed too far from classic versions, cut too thick and pretty tough.

This was my first time at this restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised!
The cordial treatment, ambiance, the low noise level in that part of the restaurant, so that conversation was easy and understandable. The food was delicious as was the presentation. All with all a very pleasant experience.

Our food was prepared and presented with love and skill. The pace of the meal was perfect. My cucumber cilantro martini was refreshing and full of herbs. Being a midwinter evening it was quiet but friendly atmosphere with adjoining diners. Entrees of scallops were fresh and cooked perfectly. Our pork chop was tender and flavorful. Since we were celebrating a birthday, we needed to try one of each dessert. No regrets there, Creme brûlée, chocolate cake and cheesecake, delish! I am looking forward to returning to Mooncusser soon!

Our food was amazing. Best Risoto I've ever had! Cocktails were chilled and the owners chatted
with us to ensure we had everything we needed.
We'll be back to this amazing find in Harwich

We love Mooncusser’s. The owners are delightful and clearly take pride in every aspect of the restaurant. And it is well deserved. We do, however, miss the Mooncusser’s Tart (the original one). Keep hoping they will bring it back.
