If you don't mind eating early (seated by 5:15), The Captain Linnell House has a special they don't advertise too much. You purchase your entree, and receive a complimentary lobster bisque (normally $12) and a complimentary desert (normally $8). For a restaurant of this caliber, it's a wonderful value. The food and service are impeccable. The lobster bisque is out... More

We were with friends for a birthday celebration and this restaurant was the perfect place for a quiet and enjoyable dinner. The ambiance is exceptional as is the service staff. The dinner selections were outstanding from the Boulibasse to the Prime Ribs of beef. Everything was prepared exceptionally well and the desserts were worth waiting for. The best Creme Brûlée...

We had a group of 4 and had a wonderful time. The food (swordfish for 3 of us), oysters, salads and more were fresh, tasty, and with great sauces. The service was impeccable and not intrusive, but they were fully aware of our timing, and never rushed us.

Organized our daughter's wedding at Captain Linnell House and was very pleased with the quality of food for a large group. Excellent service and attention to details made the whole experience memorable. Have had smaller dinners in past years with similar good results. The setting is beautiful and adds a nice traditional Cape Cod feeling to the dining experience.

We have been dining here during our vacations for many years. Last night's was but the latest in an unbroken string of virtually flawless meals. The food is well prepared, well presented, well served and, well, terrific. The portions are ample (we always bring some home) and the menu selections offer something for everyone. The ambience, with white linens, fine... More

My husband and I went to dinner here last week based on the fabulous reviews. While the food was solid, it was nothing special. Our meals tasted and looked like "wedding food" or "country club food"--so I wasn't surprised to learn that many people get married at this restaurant. What I mean by that is, both meals (different entrees) came... More

This was a pretty place. The dining room had a lovely view of the garden. Vegan options are available, much to my surprise. The food was good but nothing special.

My wife and I had an excellent evening pre-celebrating our 40th. The meals were excellent as were the martinis. A romantic atmosphere with a view of the garden and birds feeding. My pearl salad (tomatos, basil and mozzarella) was excellent. Our meals ( scallops and rack of lamb) were out of this world. The waiter was great. We had a... More

My husband and I had our wedding dinner here 4 years ago and we decided to come back for our 4th anniversary. (Just as an aside - they did a FANTASTIC job with that wedding dinner!) So, for this trip, we wanted a romantic setting and wonderful food - both of which we got here. I had the pappardelle with... More
