We have been staying in Orleans for our summer vacations for 25+ years. This was not our first visit to the Nauset Beach Club, and it will not be our last. We did not, however, have a stellar dining experience a couple weeks ago; this was completely due to the awkward, inept, and fragmented service. Sadly, restaurants these days (our... More

Many first night on the cape dinners in this cozy Italian restaurant. The menu is diverse including seafood , meat and poultry . The food is well prepared. There are nice wines by the glass . The service this year was not up to it's usual standard. Well worth a visit!

Don't let the name of this little gem fool you. When we drove to the restaurant, it looked to be another "standard" fish place. Once we stepped inside, the aromatic scent of the Italian based food pulled us right inside. The owner was friendly and found us a lovely table sans reservation. The staff was very attentive and assisted with... More

While staying in the area, I had arranged for a 7:30 reservation for four. Upon arrival, I was told that they didn't know what happened to our reservation but would seat us anyway. The service wasn't slow, it was appalling. I had chosen this restaurant because of the glowing reviews previously on this site, as well as the menu. I... More

Our reservations were at 7:30, we were seated then. A "boatload of people" came in. The service was slow, not good but these things happen. We were patient, two of the 4 meals arrived at 9:15; at 9:20 I tried to get the attention of the owner/bartender to ask for the other 2 meals. He served them without a word-no... More

I think this is one of the very best restaurants in the area. A cozy place,with two rooms of tables. We enjoyed a cocktail on the outdoor patio while waiting for our table. Friendly host and waiter. Excellent salads. Everything we had from the diverse menu was cooked perfectly and delicious. Not inexpensive but well worth the prices charged. We... More

Very disappointed. Just tourist and stopped quick to see the beach and have a drink and maybe an appetizer, but we would not be served. They would not let us sit at the beach side tables outside. Had it been busy, full, or even half full, we would have understood. But there were plenty of open tables. Finally they said... More

We were referred to the Nauset Beach Club restaurant and it was one of the best recommendations. It's a quaint little restaurant. The wait staff are all fairly young, extremely attentive and accommodating. My husband, 14 month old daughter and I were placed in a lovely corner (perfect when you have a child!) with booster seat waiting. I had a... More

We have been visiting the various restaurant iterations/owners at this location for the last 35 years with its ups and downs. We were a little tired of the menu/refusal to alter orders, but they have really gotten it right now. I hear the owner, Art, has gone into the kitchen. Whoever is cooking, they are doing an excellent job of... More
