We ate in the Tavern and the restaurant. Had the same waitress and she was very sweet. Food was very good, had the onion soup and the pot pie, very good!

Whenever we go to the Cape, we stop in Sandwich and have lunch at the Daniel Webster Inn. We also like to meet our Cape friends there at Christmastime.

Ate here for Mothers Days Brunch. Was very reasonable but not much selection at all. No Eggs Benedict, any seafood items or a carving station. You couldn't serve yourself and the eggs had no flavor. Is a nice atmosphere with friendly staff. Cute gift shop though.

This was our first time dining at the Dan'l Webster Inn. We chose this to host a weekend engagement luncheon. We had a private room (for a fee), which was excellent for our party of 12.

We always go to the Daniel Webster when we are in the area. We usually spend a night or two during dark winter days when we need a lift and the Webster always lifts us from the doldrums.

Not much fun to write a poor review but this place earned it. Service was excellent. Food was not. The chowder was so thick, it seemed like porridge. My friend sent his entree back for more cooking after stating he wanted it well cooked. Mine was just not good. Maybe it was a bad night but I will not return.

While visiting Sandwich, Ma you must try The Dan'l Webster. A great place to stay so close to Sandwich CENTER, the boardwalk, the Cape Cod Canal, and many other things. Great large rooms and a restaurant that's Old Cape Cod. We loved it You will too.

Have been going to the Dan'l Webster for many years. Today could be my last time. Mother's Day menu was extremely expensive, misleading and the portion was very small. Pasta was undercooked (no it wasn't al dente) and had to be sent back, only to come back the same way. "Spring" vegetables were almost raw chunks of large carrot and... More
