It looks like the restaurant has been completely renovated since I was last there and it is bright and lovely. The menu was limited and surprisingly expensive and the service was awful. We ordered drinks, they arrived then nothing. We were going to leave when...More

Eli's Tavern in The Coonamesset Inn, is listed on the website as "newly renovated and refreshed." This is true to some extent, since the decor has been changed, and while the main dining room has an updated feel to it-- somehow it seems smaller now....More

Eli’s Tavern is a living record of the history and heritage of The Coonamessett’s Cape Cod tradition, newly renovated and refreshed to reflect the updated Falmouth MA inn. While the new Eli’s feels more contemporary, our Cape Cod restaurant still houses the heart and soul that has made it a community hub for decades. Saddle up on a stool with one of our legendary bartenders for drinks and our full menu, or bring the crew in for a big family dinner. Our 90-seat dining room can accommodate good sized groups, and our newly opened Grange room is a perfect event space for larger parties, while never feeling stuffy. Our chef brings a creative twist to timeless New England classics at our Cape Cod restaurant with local, seasonal ingredients presented in delicious and uncomplicated dishes. So come on in, enjoy our commitment to hospitality and community, and while you’re here, buy a "pint for Eli" — it goes into our communal pool of drinks pre-purchased by everyday benefactors of the bar.
