Great Meal for a Fall Evening

My meal was delicious. Service and food were very good! As a single diner, they made me feel very comfortable and welcomed. The Sticky Toffee Pudding was over the top delicious!!!

Because the innkeepers of Ship's Knees Inn recommended this excellent restaurant, we chose to have a romantic dinner there. We were not disappointed.

This latest visit was our fourth visit - 2 lunches/2 dinners. All four visits have yielded excellent service and remarkable cuisine. Beer-battered Halibut was perfect. Assorted swordfish, scallop, and shrimp with béarnaise sauce dish was pronounced extraordinarily good. My small beer order problem was quickly corrected with one on the house. This place has become a favorite. Open most of... More

Been coming to Cape Cod for years and always like to try a new place. Place kind of hidden on Academy road off 28. Yet that was the only problem. Greeted by Andrea who showed me the menu and told me I wouldn't be disappointed. She was right. Made a reservation for 7:30 and when we arrived seated promptly. My... More

lovely spacious restaurant, accommodated our large party without feeling squeezed together. service was attentive and our meals were adjusted without any issue, gluten free options for most items on menu. All dishes were plated at the same time and were HOT, not easy with a large party. Cashew crusted fish, sadly not GF, was delicious and veal saltimbocca was sampled... More

When the host finally took a break from his computer to acknowledge us... no need to say more on our first impression. Service was ok, the atmosphere didn't match the food - not sure if that makes sense. It felt stuffy, as if it was going to be a high end experience, but the food and service was just mediocre,...

1st time visiting the Cape. Had the Lobster Roll & Shrimp Po Boy. Both were excellent as were the house made sides. Lemon Cake as also very good. Service was great. Nothing to complain about except that we don't live closer...would have loved to try the dinner menu!

Four of us stopped in for lunch on a week day. I haven't returned under this ownership in some time. Surprised to see the changes to the interior "design", very dark and drab. Dark purple walls, purple plastic tablecloths, grey carpeting, black furniture....ugh! They do have tables outside (on a main road) that are comfortable. Three of us ordered lobster... More

Very pleasant, very efficient, and the food is top-notch. Our Sole/blue crab and Halibut/lobster dishes were excellent. Tucked away from downtown, this restaurant is an eating gem. Every time we have eaten here [winter as well] the food has been remarkable.
