This restaurant is sooo charming and the food delightful! We were quite pleased! This was our first time here and couldn't be happier. My husband said the clam chowder was the best he ever had and has had it in Cape Cod, but didn't compare. The service was excellent also. We will definitely return to this restaurant the next time...

This little place was recommended to us by the good folks at Lazy Dog Ranch and it did not disappoint. The food was great and the service was terrific.

We normally go to the Outside Inn for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. Every meal that we have there is special, with host David Bain taking such excellent care of us! This meal was no exception; it was a dinner for one of our special friends. The food was truly exceptional, as was the service (thank you Sonja).

I hadn't been to the Outside Inn for 5 or 6 years. Memories of good food and service enticed me in for lunch. It was even better than I had recalled. I had salmon with a cream sauce that truly was one of the best I've ever tasted. The salad and house dressing were excellent. Then came the dessert tray... More

We chose this place for our anniversary dinner because other reviewers raved about the food. When I called ahead to make a reservation I told them this was our anniversary. Most nice places will acknowledge a special occasion. While we loved the food, it was quite disappointing that no one even said "happy anniversary", much less the usual token cupcake... More

A family owned restaurant, the Outside Inn has graced our town for over twenty years. In our small small desert town, the Bains family always deliver an eclectic menu, superb cooking, an impressive wine cellar and a comfortable ambience. They pride themselves on using fresh ingredients. The diverse offerings will normally include very creative salads, game, a southwest entire, a... More

This one of a kind small place has wonderful lunches and gourmet dinners. Servers make you feel special as your taste buds delight in special dishes. Reservations are recommended as it is limited in seating.

I normally don't eat chicken in fancy restaurants. I mean, why would you when they have lamb and steak and fish dishes that are terrific. But I gotta tell you, The Outside Inn does chicken so well, I can't help it. I recently had the Avocado Chicken. It was succulent and had creamy avo sauce that was to die for.... More

We have had lunch at the Outside Inn several times…dinner also. The food is always excellent and the employees friendly and helpful. It does tend to be a bit noisy…perhaps because of the tile floors but I would definitely recommend it.
