Cleat & Anchor – Here is an American-style restaurant and tavern that fuses casual Cape Cod charm with a little contemporary flare, and offers some of the best craft beer on the Cape.

Located at 243 Lower County Road, Dennis Port.
Southside Cantina – If food with that Southwestern flair and a pitcher of margs is your thing, Southside Cantina is ready for you. Excellent fresh food, large portions, reasonable prices and great service will keep you coming back for more. Located at 244 Lower County Road, Dennis Port.
Haigis Beach – This fair-sized, public beach sits on the southern shores of Dennis and feels secluded from the world due to the high dunes surrounding it. Rock jetties help create a versatile landscape. Gentle waves, soft sand and a small playground make it suitable for young children. Restrooms and lifeguards are available in-season. Located on Old Wharf Road, Dennis.
Stage Stop Candy – No visit to Dennis Port would be complete without a stop at State Stop Candy. Located in the historic Jonathan P. Edwards House, Stage Stop Candy has been a Cape Cod destination since opening in March of 1982.
