Five Family Friendly Restaurant Favorites

A family vacation on Cape Cod is often a great opportunity to enjoy dining out together.

But the question is, where to go that’s a family friendly restaurant and serves great food? Here are five family friendly restaurants recommended by our Oceanview staff.


Captain’s Choice Restaurant | North Truro 

A true sea-to-table eatery specializing in food that speaks of Cape Cod. Our menu features fresh fish, shellfish and more from Cape Tip Seafood. Right off Rt. 6 on Highland Rd, Captain’s Choice has indoor and outdoor seating.

“Big portions, great prices, Friendly staff!!!” ~B



Van Rensselaer’s Restaurant and Raw Bar | Wellfleet

Van Rensselaer’s has been family owned and operated for over 45 years serving a variety of Cape Cod fare. Right on Rt. 6, directly opposite the Marconi Beach road entrance. Dining room and enclosed patio seating options. Don’t miss out on the yummy salad bar!

“Ridiculously delicious seafood, ultra-fresh and beautifully prepared.” ~ Cape Cod Guide


The Alley Bowling + BBQ | Orleans

12 candle pin lanes, a house smoked BBQ restaurant + a full bar in a casual, family friendly atmosphere. Come down for a fun night out, rainy day with kids or your next party or event. Eat at your lane while you bowl! Or skip the bowling + dine in the separate dining room or our seasonal enclosed garden patio with an outdoor fireplace. On Rt 6A.
