Better than ever!

New ownership and staff makes this a popular restaurant and watering hole! Huge menu from appetizers to full dinners! Great special on raw oysters; tasty pizzas; super burgers; lots more for sophisticated palettes!

When in Orleans, you must sit at the bar and order fresh Wellfleet Oysters......followed with a flatbread pizza. Service continues to be the very best supported by many attractive servers. It remains a great place for families with children of all ages. The Oysters are the best !!!!!

The Inn is a bar, and a family friendly place all at the same time. It's perfect for a nice meal with the kids, on date night and even an evening with friends. We enjoyed some good salads to start and our meals were perfectly done. Among us we tried the salmon, red snapper, tuna and the swordfish. All were... More

Joe's used to be an okay mid - range place that started doing a $1 oyster happy hour. That brought in the crowds and a new customer-friendly owner. No more cranky hostess at the front and whiny owner buzzing around the bar. I'm a local and last nights dinner and drinks put other local spots, like the Yard Arm and... More

We ordered four different fish dishes. All great, including vegetable sides allowed to stand nicely on their own. Great desserts. Very friendly ambience, if a tad loud. Highly recommended.

I love Joes! I have been there probably 25 times in the last 3 years. I had dinner tonight with a larger group (7 adults total) and I would say the experience was above average. Drinks were great, service was great, place was packed. I have always loved the food, but tonight seemed a bit different. For starters - the... More

Great casual atmosphere. I attribute that to how many locals frequent the Inn. It makes for a very friendly and relaxed experience. Our service was prompt and the food was good each of the 3 times we dined there. Our server was well trained at knowing when we needed service and when we needed to be left to our conversation.
