First, I realize the Anthony Athanas' restaurants are living on borrowed time. But this was really sad and embarrassing.....for his sons who don't seem to know any better. Do they go down there even? We have been loyal guests of Pier 4, sticking by them through several awkward phases. But we have memories there and the food has stayed the course. We love how the menu doesn't change. We have our favorites and it's nice to know we can count on them to stay on the menu. When we are on the cape, we go to Cummaquid. I whole heartedly agree with the reviewer who mentioned "haunted mansion". Oh yes, beginning with the parking lot full of broken asphalt with lines of weeds sprouting through (could be the only signs of life about the place). We too were ushered past the usual dining rooms which were hot and stuffy....and empty. And then into the same sun porch. Same leaves above our heads on the faded plexiglas roof. The furniture, rod iron, had rows of stacked chairs along the walls. There was also a small dance floor left assembled, I cannot imagine how even a wedding could bring promise back to this once great lady of an inn. I am sorry to see the place so ignored and left behind. We found one very bright spot, and that was our sweet waitress. I am so sorry to have forgotten her name. She was lovely and made the return visit a pleasure.....or might she have been an apparition. This place could do that to you.
