We were expecting some amazing seafood but really, it was just average. We were seated in the dining room which lacked ambiance. We heard the tavern is the place to eat but were unable to get reservations.

This was a special occasion for me: it was my wife 66th birthday, unfortunately she was only there in spirit. Still, I wanted to celebrate the same way we always did: good food/drinks at very good restaurant. I just moved to the Cape, so I looked for a very good restaurant and I have to say Old Yarmouth Inn fit... More

As the #1 rated restaurant in the area, our expectations were quite high. We ate in the main dining room which I personally did not find attractive with the black and white wallpaper. A definite plus was our server who was attentive and prompt with our requests. Of the 6 people we dined with, the scallops were by far the... More

As the owner of the Old Yarmouth Inn, I obviously wish that you had been more pleased with your dinner with us. Food, wine, art, fashion are all subject to a person's own taste and dishes that received high praise from other customers did not meet with your tastes. I stand by the quality and preparation and presentation of all... More

We went here for dinner at the suggestion of our hosts at the High Pointe Inn. The atmosphere is like an up market English pub, and we had high hopes of a break from the fried, high carb diet that is endemic in Cape Cod. The service was good, but the food was a mixed case. My wife had some... More

Thank you for your review and I wish that we had been able to offer you a perfectly cooked duck, or an alternative meal that would have left you more satisfied. Although we try to be consistently excellent, there are occasions when we fall short of our own high expectations and sadly this was the case. If you ever travel... More

We loved everything about this restaurant--kind and professional service without being overly-fussy, beautiful setting, fabulous food and wine. Try the quahogs!

The entire wait staff was friendly and helpful, and our waitress was especially great (Danni). The food was good and they were willing to adapt a menu item by pan searing instead of frying the scallops. The interior is cozy and the place is full of history.

Thank you for spending part of your Cape Cod vacation with us! I am certainly glad that our kitchen could accommodate your menu modification and created a dinner that was memorable enough to write about. Dani, and all of our staff, understand that hospitality begins with a smile and a commitment to make our customers happy. Sheila More

We were at the Old Yarmouth Inn for a wedding rehearsal dinner. The setting was traditional New England. The set up was spacious and not crowded in the section they set aside for the wedding party. The servers were attentive and friendly and the seafood was just right.

Food was very good, portions huge though. Definitely share appetizers between 2 or more people. However it was good to visit somewhere with so much history and character.

A great atmosphere for our party of four. Semi formal and a ban on using phones at the table! which was great. The food was high quality but perhaps a bit too much, no need for a starter next time. Good value for the quality.
