Take a look at some of our past Short List topics!

Whether you’re looking for ice cream, Mexican food or just things from Cape Cod past, the Short List has it all for you. Take a look at some of the previous Short Lists that we’ve put up online!


  1. Clearly this list was compiled by restaurant’s willing to pay to be included on the list seeing as anyone of these places could only be considered marginal at best

  2. Gohome yourdrunk says:

    Alberto’s bar food? The 99 honorable mention? Who ever put this list together leads a very confused, tasteless life

  3. Roxanne wilde says:

    Difficult to take this list seriously with Chillingsworth bar missing! One of the Cape’s finest restaurants with a burger in the bar for around $10, along with many other outstanding treats, with the option of also ordering from the Bistro menu, and you didn’t include it? No…….

  4. Joe’s is now The Barley Neck Inn , should you be able to update the Article.

  5. integrity? says:

    Woof, what a joke…

  6. What readers? Wow, there are some very mediocre places on this list. A couple on here are worth checking out, but here’s my list: best pizza – Pizza Barbone; best beer, burger, and pub food – Flynn’s Irish Pub @ Sagamore; best Mexican – Acapulcos in W. Yarmouth or El Colibri Restaurante tequila bar in Mashpee. Good seafood – Black Cat Hyannis.

  7. Carlos danger says:
