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

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
