    Dennis Port and Nantucket Sound have it good at Ocean House where you can luxuriate inside in the bar/dining room or kick back outside on the deck/patio. However you want to play it.

    Tucked into an old house, the offerings are as eclectic as the space. They concentrate mainly on wine and tapas (both done well), but also have a house ale on draft made by Cisco Nantucket and a bevy of imaginative martinis.

    Top yourself off with an Atlantic Steaming Bowl -- that's Portuguese bouillabaisse studded with littlenecks, mussels, scallops, shrimp, haddock, and squid swimming in tomato saffron broth along with some thin-as-can-be pasta.

    Enjoy beach and harbor views from their pier while knocking back Moscow Mules, Harbor Breezes, Dark ‘N’ Stormies, and the like, along with plenty of crafty brews (Clown Shoes Clementine, Tröegs Sunshine Pils).

    Beach bums gather here throughout the sunny season to imbibe the house specialty Goombay Smash, described only as "rums, juices, and a Myers float" (3 MILLION sold and counting).

    The motto here is “Live, Give, Relax”, which is great advice anywhere, but especially on the Cape. Dive into their extensive raw bar, then sink a drink or eight (you’re gonna be there all day).

    Watch out for the fan-favorite Shark Bite (light rum, crème of coconut, pineapple juice, Monin Blue, grenadine splash, candy shark garnish) and the Cape Cod Margarita (Sauza tequila, Cointreau, lime, agave nectar, and, of course, cranberry juice!).

    Their signature creations often start with house-made infusions (think spiced rum infused with Mandarin oranges), which can be served chilled and straight up (you’re straight up getting one).

    Their cozy, relaxed haunt has interesting cocktails along with proper whiskeys and sipping tequilas, but they are primarily known for the extensive beer menu (usually sporting around 60 selections).

    Drink from the deep cache of bourbons, Scotches, and ryes, or reach for cocktail creations like the the Kentucky Mai Tai (Corner Creek, DC Mandarino, Orgeat, lemon, lime, rosewater, Bittermens Elemakule Tiki Bitters).
