A friend of mine lives in Brewster..the food here is just plain excellent...if you want a great "home-cooked" New England meal this is your place. Chowder is phenomenal..best in Mass! All other food is great... oysters on the 1/2 are unbelievably fresh...my friend had a pasta bolognese..amazing...stop in and say hi to Kevin

My wife and I were looking for some really good clam chowder. This place is on several "best on the Cape" lists, and was close to where we were staying, so we checked it out. And guess what? They win. I've had a lot of chowder on the Cape, including several others that make the "best of" lists. I tried... More

We have been on the search for the best lobster roll (done in an authentic fashion) on Cape Cod… This one comes the closest to perfection that we have found thus far! We give this lobster roll and eight out of 10… What was missing? The roll could have been a little more toasty and buttery... and they were missing... More

Called for a Togo order as our infant won't let us eat dinner at a restaurant these days at 8:56pm (they close at 9pm) they were super friendly and we're happy to get us food. We had the lobster rolls and some chowder both were delicious! We returned a couple of days later to eat an early dinner at the... More

We selected the Inn mostly because of the close proximity to the beach which we were visiting to remember a dear friend. Also they were handicapped accessible which was key because a member of our party uses a wheelchair. We were greeted warmly by staff and patrons and told they had the best lobster rolls. Our waitress gladly rearranged a... More

The locals seem to love the place. The food is a bit pricey for what you get. The salad was miniscule. The food was decent though. I wouldn't rave about it but it was definitely decent. We like to try new places...we had been here for drinks but never dinner.

Family of 9 stopped for lunch. Waitstaff was excellent as was all of the food. Varied menu available to satisfy all tastes including our teens.

Determined to try every Brewster restaurant I had lunch here. The service was excellent. The decor is nostalgic and kind of sad. Musty smell. Wallpaper from the forties? Captains chairs from the 60's? Old dirty carpeting. Whole place seems lost in time and not in a good way. For $18 had a cup of chowder and a fried clam roll:... More

Sea Food Medley was so tasty and moreish. Try it with the garlic mash! The dining room was very quaint and homely and the staff very helpful.

What a disappointing dining experience. We went with cape cod locals and family members after reviewing mediocre reviews online. I should have listened! The food was a "C-" at best and the service was an F. After waiting an hour for our order and two trips to find our waitress it was discovered they "lost" our order somewhere in dining... More
