New American Restaurant

“We personally recommend the Rye Tavern on Old Sandwich Rd. It’s the original standing tavern many used to travel to Cape Cod in their wagons. The Boston (wealthy) residents in the 1800’s maintained tree lots on Cape to be cut to heat their home. Matter of fact, the thievery of trees is the reason why we now have “Land “Court”. Many land disputes required the court to decide. The original tavern has been preserved for you to view. It’s a definite local favorite. ”

“If you appreciate a good burger, THIS is your spot. The menu varies with seasonal specials, but it also has its regular menu, with each burger being so special you'll think: "Why didn't I think of this combination?". We find ourselves returning again and again to try out yet another new option on that menu. And don't get me started on the truffle fries.....”
