The scenic dinner train is the Cape's entry in the novelty dining experience category. Dress up for a three-hour tour among cranberry bogs and marshes in a restored 1937 dinner coach. From Hyannis, the train crosses the canal and then stops in Bourne while you consume your entrée choice, usually steak, chicken, fish, or pasta. The Elegant Dinner Train was named one of the top three nationwide by the Food Network Dining on the Train. A full bar is available.
Just a short walk from Hyannis Harbor, the Black Cat Tavern is a fun place for a tasty dinner. The menu features traditional New England seafood such as cod, lobster and scallops, as well as more exotic selections like Mahi-Mahi served with pineapple salsa. There is also a wide range of steak, poultry and pasta dishes. In addition, there’s a children’s menu for finicky young diners. Cat fanciers will especially love the oil portraits of cats dressed in period-style costumes. - Susan Vogel-Misicka
Located in the former rectory for Sandwich's Corpus Christi Catholic parish, the Belfry Inn and Bistro is about as charming and romantic a place as you could hope to find. The dining room is smallish - cozy is a better word - with white tablecloths set with crystal, china, and silver and illuminated by candlelight. Menu selections include breast of duck sautéed served with wild mushroom risotto, baked spiced apple and a roasted shallot port reduction and the chef's daily pasta selection. The bistro, which features a piano player Friday and Saturday, has a full service bar.
After the original Dan'l Webster Inn burned down, the proprietors decided to rebuild true to the style of the historic structure. The result is a 20th-century inn, pub and restaurant that retains much of the colonial charm of its forbearer. Dining venues include an atrium setting, formal dining room and pub. Seafood is a specialty but the menu also boasts plenty of vegetarian offerings. Brunch in the atrium is popular as is the fare in the cozy pub, where you can get wood-grilled pizzas, burgers and chowder while you hang out and soak up the ambiance.
