Traveling to Cape Cod with the kids? Then you have to eat at Wequassett Resort and Golf Club in Chatham, Massachusetts. In this video, I give you an overview of Wequassett’s dining options, and share why the Wequassett restaurant collection caters so well to families.
1. Breakfast at Twenty-Eight Atlantic
Twenty-Eight Atlantic is the signature restaurant at Wequassett. It’s a bright, elegant space with spectacular views of Pleasant Bay.
While their a la carte options are lovely, I would definitely recommend going with the breakfast buffet if you’re traveling with kids. Why? Two words: pirate ship. That’s right, kids get to climb onto a pirate ship to get their food and they’re greeted by a real live pirate!
The main dining room is quite formal and hushed so if your kids are on the rambunctious side, you might want to grab a table in the outdoor section. That way, you don’t have to worry about them making too much noise, and you can soak in the beautiful view.
2. Lunch at Outer Bar & Grille
Outer Bar & Grille is the casual outdoor restaurant at Wequassett. It’s a great place to grab a bite if you’re hanging by the pool. You can either eat in this upstairs area, or on the ground level terrace by the pool.
We ate here a couple times and it was consistently good. On our first visit, we shared the tuna poke as an appetizer. Then I had the Outer Bar Salad while Serge had the halibut. On our next visit, I had the lobster bisque while Serge had fish and chips.
The cocktails are fantastic too.
3. Dinner at Thoreau’s
Thoreau’s is the gastropub at Wequassett. It’s got the warmth and intimacy of a club-like bar, with the gourmet food of a fine dining restaurant.
Serge had the burger and fries, while I had the New England clam chowder with a side of sauteed asparagus. For dessert we had the chocolate cake and apple crisp. Everything was fantastic.
4. Dinner at Twenty-Eight Atlantic
The same restaurant that serves breakfast in the morning transforms into a formal dining space at night. And dinner at Twenty-Eight Atlantic is a must-do while you’re staying at Wequassett.
The kids menu is presented on this adorable sailboat. It includes kids classics like mac and cheese and plain pasta, but, also has some great seafood options like New England Clam Chowder and grilled salmon.
Serge started with the oysters while I started with the foie gras. For our entrees, Serge had the miso glazed cod while I had the halibut with cauliflower couscous. For dessert, Serge ordered a chocolate cake while I had a sort of deconstructed strawberry cheese cake. Everything was absolutely amazing.
The atmosphere is quite formal, so if your kids are pretty energetic, I’d recommend coming right when the restaurant opens at 6 pm, before the dining room fills up. Or you might want to drop the kids off at the resort’s fantastic Children’s Center and make it a grown-ups-only affair.
