We are going to be in Brewster, MA in July for two weeks. I'm curious if anyone has any feedback on area restaurants on the Cape. The Brewster/Harwich/Orleans area is where we probably will spend most of our time/meals. But we probably will do a day trip to Provincetown/Wellfleet/Chatham etc.

I'd like the GOOD/BAD and the UGLY so I can have a starting point.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions you can provide. Edited to add, that I have a 3 year old, if that makes difference and I should mention that she is PN/TN allergic.

Hi, We went last year to Dennisport for the first time.And going back this July. All CapeCod Baseball games are out. If anyone does go check their shoes. Peanut shells are every where at the Chatham ball park and Yarmouth ball park.My husband & oldest went- called me said it was safe, so DS & I went to meet them -surprise Peanut shells everywhere. (My husband was crushed that he missed all those shells) We did eat out at a pizza/restaurant in Dennisport - Great pizza & food- Nothing fancy but kid friendly.

374 Lower County Rd, Dennis Port, MA 02639 --
I did alot of research online and I drove down to picked up some travel/add booklets(If you live far away I bet one of the chamber of commerce places would mail you booklets to review. What I did not like is alot of restaurants served P&J we just did not go to any. My niece & nephew wanted to eat ice cream every night out. We did not eat ice cream out.That was hard. We ate out the 1st night -we were safe-I did not get to research it. My child did not really eat much- just the fries he was to excited to see the water and his cousins lol.If I remember the name I will post it. Good luck.[/size]

You may want to check out Red Robin--there is one in Wareham (just off the Cape). We have not eaten at that location but we recently went to two Red Robin restaurants in Pennsylvania, and ordered off their peanut allergy menus. Everyone was happy and safe.

thanks for the info, if you think of that restaurant please come back and post.
I'm going to try and do some on-line research of the places we ate at last year (before she was diagnosed). We are staying in a condo so eating in is an option but I'd like to get us to eat out when we can since we are on vacation!
ETA - The NO ice cream shop is the worst thing I think. I think we will have to eat it at home (stock up some Ben and Jerrys). Hmm that does make me sad that she can't go out for ice cream.

Thanka, that might be a bit far but maybe we can hit it on the way down. I'm going to check their website, that's interesting that they have a specific pn allergy menu. thanks!

Hi, Still can't come up with the name of that restaurant. My Brother picked it- I will try to reach him for the name. I have to disclose that we did eat ice cream out ONCE we ate at a place that only served ice cream cones- no sundeas & they did not serve any nuts especially no peanuts and had no peanut or peanut butter in any flavors.It was at a minature Golf Place in Harwich They opened a brand new hood vanilla cream. (and my DS has had hood before at home -we live on hoodies) and they used a new plastic spoon and new gloves. And I was able to read the ice cream label. I had spinkles in my pocket so I used those. I will say this was my husband's idea-I was so nervous!!!! My son was little 2 1/2. He justed wanted what everyone else had. I think he ate 2 bites, then I finished the ice cream. But he felt part of....But I did not like the worry my stomach was sick all night with worry. This year I decided I will bring hoodies with me and ask the woman to sell me my hoodies(or ice cream sandwiches he likes those too) then he will feel part of and my worry will be less. Have fun, Deb
