Foodies going to Providence and then looking at Maine or Cape cod?

We end up booking four nights in Hyannis at the Hyannis Travel Inn.
It has great reviews for a clean, friendly staff, pools and breakfast included. Its walkable to main street where we can leave the car. Very considering us canadians are looking at paying 30% more exchange rate .
We will have our car so will go to Spankys Crab shack and looking at more suggestions,

We wil drive as well to some not miss chow recomendations

Chatham bars inn looks lovely but lowest price room with two beds is $740 a night!!!
Wayyyyyy over budget
Rather be in Hawaii with those prices

Foodies going to Providence and then looking at Maine or Cape cod?

Thank you everyone!! Back from shovelling more snow :(

My spouse and I looked at the map we got from AAA and going to Portland or Hampton Beaches will be farther out fo way for only 4 nights then CC when considering the drive back to Toronto.
Why we are leaning more to CC as closer to providence,

We missed the lobster roll when in Boston sighhh..

Masha you tracking me down:) by the way we had a wonderful time in chicago and great deep dish pizza and sightseeing,

falmouth and Chatham come up as more lively,we are use to more hotels like embassy, Hampton, holiday inn and many of the motels on cc are not like this excwpt in Hyannis .
princetown looks great but it is the furthest in on CC and with 4 nights I wasnt sure about this,

Love to do a fishing trip and bring it back and cook.or local fish market,
Are prices of dining out and fish markets hiked up due to CC being a summer retreat for many??

Any suggestions for downtown providence? We will be staying at the Hampton.

Thanks Bob.. Your in favour to portland over cc?

So hard to find a location on CC that has a lively town to walk to so can leave car back and enjoy a nice chow meal. I think it is more quiet laid back and visitors go to relax.

Will look into Wellfleet.

We have to consider the drove back to Toronto as well CC or Portland.

I will look on the threads on restaurants in the downtown providence while staying there,
We will spend a day in Newport beach too,
We also enjoy Mexican , great burger joint, DDD location

Foodies going to Providence and then looking at Maine or Cape cod?

We will be at a function for a 4 nights in Providence in july and then looking to travel 4 nights to Maine or Cape Cod for some sight seeing, beaches and FOOD. Ie seafood. Lobster rolls, patios, drinks/apps,
We are a family that have been to Boston a few years ago and loved it but want to be by the ocean as we are from Toronto area .
Hotel with pool walkable to town for shops, dining, drinks.
I would say happy hours but believe there are laws in this state for this
We plan much of our vacations around fun dining,
Not looking at high end dining but more good quality, fun,upbeat atmosphere kid friendly.
I read on this board that Maine might be more chow worthy but colder ocean that may not be able to get in the water.

I know this is not a travel board but if reading what we are looking for where would you steer this family?

We end up at The Beaver Hall for dinner and 2 different Les Brasseurs locations (lunch and a dinner)
We were going to devine burger but had another guest with us that did not like burgers so ended up at The beaver hall which was a nice meal but not on the agenda,

Thanks everyone

I was looking at chalet bbq. It does say they deliver and when clicking on their map I could not figure out if Fairmont downtown is in their delivery area as rather then taxi there back we could have it delivered. Or is this a place best to go in person to dine?

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

I am not finding Deville diner bar app

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

Umm mine! And I'm not a fan of dumplings/dimsum.

Hmmm interesting,,, as spouse was taken here along with Beijinng and Moishe's for don't miss in Montreal.
Don Sutherland was dining at Beijing and at that time was a frequent flyer there.

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

Now how would you compare Bar B. Barn to St hubert and Chalet?

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

Is Beijinng in china town a decent restaurant and authentic? Spouse has been a few times on business with staff but not in 5 years.

Is the dinner for two I read about that many choose a good idea?
Kids can try from our order.
One asking oh is this a California sushi rolls place or chicken balls and rice ? Lol

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

So how do they determine how to charge for toppings in a pizza topping bar. Just curious??
Red peppers, 50 cents plus red onions $, peperoni $
Why i asked if it was a weight thing as read a blurb on a pizza location where owners were running a make your own topping ice cream place and decided to go with pizza later on .
same concept,

Sounds fun!

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

What???? Kids cant go to pubs???? M
Never heard of that rule unless a nightclub lol

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

Best pizza place for a family closest walk will take. :)

Our list that looks appealing fron your suggestions and looking at menus for lunch and dinner options . Thanks everyone!

ll Focolaio , brigade pizza seem closest?? And not overpriced wine/beer,

Devine dinerbar for burgers. From reviews everything is huge here. Burgers could be shared amongst a couple ?? If adding one of their large salads and a appetizer? As many posters said its huge portions and many bring take out but we don't have a microwave at our hotel.

-chalet BBQ for chicken
-Brits and Chips
Ye olde orchard Pub is this the best closest pub to Fairmont?

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

I saw 5 reviews for Brigade on TA but no menu link would open for their website, is it a pizza topping bar and you choose what you like and they weigh the ingredients on what to charge you and then put it in their hot ovens to bake?

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

Yes my daughter loved Alfredo on her pizza, red peppers and green olives!

Brigade pizza sounds fun too!!
And all in same area to dine.

Would you expect 15 min walk from fairmont?

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

Ok so $20 main dishes, plus a shared appetizer and wine/beer two kids meals.

We use to have st. hubert in ontario and loved it over swiss chalet as liked the sauce better.

Thanks be nice to try a different chicken place out.

Deville dinerbar is fun in what way for kids? I see the mac cheese wontons on menu your children like. This is a easy walk as well?
Any fav burger on the menu highly recommend?

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

Great suggestions!,
I have one child that does not like red sauce on pizza. All 50 pizzas have red sauce :(
They they don't have pasta on menu that one could have.

Maybe they would accommodate making a 1/2 pizza with no red sauce.

We just remembered that our first trip 2 years ago we went to Crescent Burger Bar and it was excellent, looked at yelp reviews and still look fantastic,

Great suggestions everyone!!
When I was saying $20 i was looking at a entree and then add on a appetizer and beer/wine, we don't do dessert.

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

I should of mentioned spouse does not like middle east food,

Those above links are not appealing but thanks for the suggestions,

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

We were looking at $20 entree pricing for adults and less for kids

Casual Good burger place , wings and Cesar salads with homemade dressings would be appealing.

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

Ok will look into these menu suggestions,

I just meant faux pas is in we have keg down the road from us and never had a decent steak there why we end up enjoying it a steak at home usually saturday evenings,

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

Ummm we live in GTA toronto. KEG faux pas.. We prefer steak at night home with nice bottle of wine two as spouse is a good king of Q.
Just returned from chicago two weeks ago on vacation.loved a deep dish pizza /salad ,pint beers for $70 and leftovers.one of our best meals.

We dont eat out at home as pretty good cooks so enjoy on vacations,

We went to Les 3 brasserie in old montreal the previous year and a new burger joint,
And last year les 3 local. Samo samo.

I rather order in st hubert again then subject to another food court poutine at poulet .

We like DDD. Or best thing you Ate. Were willing to drive or short cab to a memorable fun wow this is good place,

Restaurants for families near Fairmont downtown Montreal

We are returning to Montreal and have never had a memorable meal. We are looking at suggestions that are walkable.

We have been to Dunn's, Les 3 Brasseurs, Old Montreal Poutine. Nickels, st hubert (good casual take out), and food court in underground horrendous after day 2.

My spouse has been to Moishe's but this is a family trip and the kids wouldn't appreciate it or price tag. He has been a few times in the past to Bejjing is this still a good restaurant you would recommend?

Good home cooking family restaurant, french cuisine, Mexican, something that pleases adults and kids 8-11..

Thanks
