The Port is an upscale eatery with several sections that allow pets. There’s a few tiny tables out front where you can eat with your dog. And there’s another section out back that’s outside where you can do the same.  They also have dollar oysters, but by the time you total up the drinks your dollar oysters just cost you a lot more than you saved on the oysters.

Scribano’s Italian Market & Deli

302 Main Street (Route 28), Harwich Port
(774) 408-7701

Scribano’s is a small Italian Deli in Harwich Port.  Check out the prosciutto sandwich, it’s a salty treat that makes dogs drool while you eat it.  Throw them a few scraps of prosciutto fat and you’ll have one happy dog at your feet.  There’s no tables here and dogs technically aren’t allowed inside, but we’re including it because that sandwich is so good you just need to try it.  Leave your dog outside while you run in to grab it.

Sundae School Harwich Port

Navigating the parking lot at sundae school is an experience in itself. It’s amazing how competitive getting a parking space scene can be in Harwich Port these days since they built over the lot by the liquor store.
