We have eaten here many times over the years, and met and dined with friends, as well as attending functions. Every time food has been very good to excellent, service has been excellent, and the atmosphere is quiet, pleasant, and restoring. The restaurant raises their own striped bass, so it is often on the menu, and perfectly fresh. If it... More

We saved the Dan'l Webster for our last day on the Cape -- a special treat to celebrate our vacation. And it was a special treat all the way around. The atmosphere, of course, is wonderful, especially dining in the Conservatory. The service is equally good -- both capable and friendly -- and the food presentation is terrific. Lobster Chowder...

My wife and I went there after a long day of house hunting. We first went to the bar to relax. The bartender made me a "kraken Punch", awesome! We also had a cup of lobster chowder, beyond awesome! We ate dinner in the garden. It was relaxing and beautiful. I had the demi prime rib. Cooked to perfection. Mashed... More

Good ambience, good service, but the food is rather subpar especially for mains that are $24-32/entree! My special of the night was badly overcooked, the octopus was near plastic, the puree was unimpressive and the entire ensemble was not befitting of a $28 entree.

We ate lunch in the Tavern. We enjoy the colonial atmosphere. We had the buffalo wings and a chicken sandwich. Both were tasty.

When asked if you want to dine in the restaurant or the tavern, make sure to consider if you have children who prefer burgers or pizza. If you do, choose the tavern. This was a very affordable, but highly recommended experience. The lobster chowder is wonderful, and the restaurant prides itself - rightly - on its martini selection. Staff is... More
