Stay for desert

Had lunch here before our spa services. The staff was attentive and the food was quite yummy. We had a salad and the corn chowder. The chowder was the best I've had. The desert flight is worth saving room for no matter the meal. The penecotta is by far my favorite.

The price was about what I expected when you are looking at a fine dinning. The food was excellent the service was great and the atmosphere was wonderful.

The glass enclosed dining area sets the relaxing mood for this wonderful meal. We enjoyed a 3 course meal and everything was perfectly prepared and wonderful! We enjoyed the Scallop Cake, Fruits of Sea (perfectly cooked and flavorful), Chicken Pot Pie (oh my! not just your grandmas pot pie) and yummy dessert. Our only regret is that we decided to... More

This place has a wonderful atmosphere. Great place to meet friends. We ate in the garden room.. Loved the garden view. The room is lovely... It could use a little work on the green ceiling.... But still a nice place to dine. The lobster chowder was good.. It could have been served a little hotter for my liking. The scallop... More

The Inn is lovely and the dining can be in The Tavern or in The Conservancy. A fine and varied menu with lots of good fish (not surprising - this is Cape Cod!). Great and knowledgeable service. Could not have asked for a better dinner. We will be back!!

We ate breakfast at the Inn 2 times while we stayed in Sandwich, MA. We ordered the two eggs over easy with bacon, potatoes and toast. Everything was prepared well and wait staff was attentive. The dining area was lovely. Great way to start the day. Breakfast is served until 11 am.

If only the décor matched the food, then I'd be giving this 4 stars. The food is above average, but the service was very slow, and the interior of the Daniel Webster is tired and in need of attention. The windows and mirrors were dirty, the back garden needed weeding, mouldings around some windows was detached and left either lying... More
