Wonderful dining experience. All the meals were fantastic. Loved the yellow tail carpaccio and the lobster Thermidor. The cod special and swordfish were quite good, as was the chicken. Service was friendly and efficient. We would love to go back.

The most amazing part of this property is the location. The Inn is directly across from the ocean and the Old Fort is in a beautiful and quiet residential neighborhood that is a short 5 minute walk to the Inn. The staff is amazing, both at the Inn and the Old Fort... very friendly and extremely helpful. All amenities at... More

My family of 13 had dinner at the Ocean Restaurant at the Cape Arundel Inn. It exceeded our expectations. I knew the view was magnificent but the food was as spectacular. Everyone enjoyed their berry good size appetizers, salads and dinners. We could not for desserts. It was pricey but very much worth it! I would highly recommend it!
