We came to the Orleans Inn for lunch and drinks. The view was just gorgeous and very relaxing. We both started with clam chowder which was very good. For lunch I had the lobster tacos and my fiance had the lobster ravioli. The lobster tacos were amazing. It came with two fresh homemade tacos, both filled with lobster and a... More

This was a nice place to sit and have a leisurely lunch. My husband and I dined outside on their covered deck which has a nice water view. Our server was attentive and the food was good. I would definitely come back when traveling through the area again.

Thank you so much for the kind review. We saved the Inn 18 years ago and totally rebuilt the Deck and recently added the awning. We are so pleased that you found us and enjoyed the experience. We appreciate guests like you that share such positive feelings. More

Stopped spontaneously for dinner and they seated us immediately. The dining room overlooks the harbor and the outdoor seating is down on harbor level. The fish and chips were very good!

Went here our first night in town because we wanted a restaurant on the water. The service was good, but the food was just OK. Overall we felt like this was more like a pub for drinking rather than a foodie place.

Thanks for your review. We see that your visit was several months ago. We offer 3 dining areas in peak season. Off season we may offer the pub, dining room or outside deck. More

Great Summer spot on Cape Cod. Our group of 9 was accommodated on the outside deck without a reservation. The location, atmosphere, & service more than made up for the average food. We would return again with a large group next Summer.

The food was quite good, but the service took forever. And frankly, we felt like we were the youngest customers there. The majority of the patrons seemed to be over 70, and I'm not sure why that is. The view was waterfront, but it wasn't ocean which was what we hoped to find. I guess we had to go further... More

Thanks for your nice review. Our clientele range from newborn to elderly. We serve almost a thousand guests a day in 3 dining areas. All areas offer a panoramic view of Town Cove which leads out to the ocean. The National Seashore has protected development on the ocean and there are no other waterfront locations. We were blessed to save... More

We stopped into the Waterfront Inn for lunch before heading home from a week on the Cape. The atmosphere was very nice, and we all enjoyed the view of the water from the outside deck. I order the berry sangria, and it was very delicious. I would suggest half a carafe. It goes down easy and one is just not... More

I had the chicken parmesan here and it was very good, considering that this isn't an Italian restaurant. The generous portion of chicken was nicely prepared with an appropriate amount of cheese and sauce. I chose the berry salad and it kind of stole the show. I guess I'm not a salad person and have never had a green salad... More

My family chose to drive out here for dinner on a whim having seen the Orleans Inn featured in an episode of Ghost Hunters. We were surprised by really good food and service to make it worth the trip out of our way. "Berry Salad" was on the specials menu, and it was truly outstanding - a combination of fresh... More
