I cannot say enough good words to describe our dinner and evening spent at The Captain Linnell House. Every aspect was truly wonderful. We loved the food, service, and beyond those, the atmosphere is so comfortable, you feel like you're visiting a good friend and you lose track of the time spent enjoying the evening. Always, one of the most... More

Had a wonderful meal last weekend. Made a reservation for 6:30. We were seated as we walked in the door. Drank Zardetto prosecco and ate filet mignon. Service was seamless. Highly recommend this restaurant!

We arrived a few minutes before and were delighted at the sight of this beautiful house all lit up in welcome! A majestic entrance and beautifully manicured grounds was only the... More

My wife and I called in for a reservation. We wanted a 6:45 dinner but 8am was only available. We took our time getting there, and had a drink at the bar.

Now with > 3yrs on the Cape, the lovely bride & I finally got a reservation to Captain Linnell House (Well, this is October after Columbus Day!). O.K. figures to be somewhat classy and dressy (and older), but that's why we're there on a weekend. This was very well worth it. Everything from the setting to the food and the... More

This old sea captains house - a place where numerous eweddings, rehearsal dinners and functions are held annually is wonderful kept. We were seated in the dining room facing the koi pond and garden. This seat is an amazing place to watch the birds and wildlife as the restaurant fills the feeders and places food on the ledge for squirels,... More

Hi. My wife and I recently hosted a wedding reception here and the Bride is still smiling. If the food was this good being served to 130 people (steak and crab-cakes) I can't imagine how extraordinary Captain Linnell's is as a restaurant.

Dinner is served in a dining room located in a former sea captain's home. The service was superb and responsive, the food was delicious with excellent presentation. We dined in the garden room with a wonderful view. If you want to celebrate a special occasion, or just the joy of good dining highly recommend!
