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

Quiet ,dining in an old home on 6a. Started out encouraged, I ordered prime rib which was more grisle and fat than beef hidden under a thick Lipton gravy mix. Would not go back

The chowder was thin and bland; the fish was overcooked and tiny. The dining room was dingy and depressing. The service was spotty. The wine arrived after the meal. First visit was also my last..

We had not been to the Cape in 10 years but on our return we wanted to revisit this old Inn and restaurant as we had previously found the seafood to be good, the chowder among the three best at the Cape, and the service to be excellent. Not so this time. The facility is worn out, the chair I... More

My two sisters took me to lunch at the Inn for my birthday. I like simple, unpretentious eateries and menus. The Inn is just that, worn but comfortable. The tables, chairs and wallpaper have been around for many, many years. The menu offers pretty standard Cape fare. My sisters both had clam chowder which they agreed was very good. For... More

The food was meh, but the service was ok. We were very disappointed our first night in town. They do have a separate area for music, but we didn't stay.

We are up on the Cape for 3 weeks so we are trying lots of new places for dinner and this was one of them! We were there on a Thursday night around 5:30 pm and we were seated right away. It's a quaint little place that used to be an Inn as well. The regular menu is pretty traditional,... More

They are with-in walking distance of several inns, beach and local shops. They have a great night lie scene since they are on of the few local bars in the Brewster area.

While visiting Brewster for a wedding, we stopped for an evening meal, just took a shot. We found an older farmhouse style building with a history described on the menu, I love that kind of stuff. We found the menu to be creative and our meals were well prepared, presented well and reasonable. We were under no time schedule so... More
