The Mad Minnow Bar and Kitchen Harwich Port Restaurant- Cape Cod

The Gullottis and Strangfelds partnered together in 2015 with a goal to bring high quality, local products to Harwich Port. With passion for community, their aim for the Mad Minnow is to join people together for amazing food and cold beer.


Tony and Meg Gullotti

Tony and Meg have lived on the south shore of Massachusetts for over 20 years and have been coming to the Cape as summer residents for longer than that. They have three daughters, all of which have been born and raised in the restaurant industry. The pair opened their first restaurant, The Blue Coral, in 2002 in Chatham, MA with a vision of fine cuisine mixed with casual dining to create a laid back vibe off the beaten path of Main Street. They are excited to be a part of the community of Harwich Port and eager to meet their new neighbors and friends.


Mike and Megan Strangfeld

Mike and Megan have been working in the restaurant industry for over 20 years and are currently living in the Boston area raising their two energetic twin girls. The Mad Minnow is their first restaurant as owners and they could not be more excited to be on the Cape in Harwich Port, a place they were both lucky to call home growing up. They look forward to exploring all the local farmer's markets and gardens the area has to offer, and featuring as many natural Cape flavors as possible.
