With the most outstanding view. In Orleans, it is such a shame that it needs a complete overall. From the musty smell that wafts through the lobby upon entering, it doesn't get any better in the pub room where the table tops feel like a bottle of old fashioned glue has spilled. Keep your hands on your lap and you'll... More

Wow. The Inn is the most beautiful on the Cape. We did a multi-million dollar renovation with new carpeting and tables on the deck. The solid wood mahogany tables in the tavern are gorgeous and if you felt anything it was the humidity as there are a few days on Cape Cod that get very humid. We serve thousands of... More

We ate here several times during our brief stay on the Cape and were never disappointed. We never waited long for a table and found both the food and the service beyond expectation and look forward to our return. Try both the chowder and the fish sandwich and you won't have missed out

I wish I could give you a hug! We serve thousands of guests that leave raving about the Inn. I told my daughter that we have to listen to them rather than the .001% that may put up a negative review for whatever reason. We love our guests and continue to serve with pleasure! You made our day! More

We decided to try this place after a wonderful day at the beach in Wellfleet. It looked charming enough and got some good reviews. First off, the decor is very in need of updating - especially the bathroom area off the outdoor deck - dank moldy smell, old carpets and a storage area with old recliners on the way to... More

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The Inn has been completely renovated. Guests love the large screen theater with custom recliners. The carpet is less than a year old. No one has ever had a negative comment but we appreciate that your taste may be different than our wonderful guests. The chairs and the tables on the deck... More

The view is amazing and great service! If you don't mind below average food than this is a good choice. Several of us ordered the lobster bisque because of fond memories of previous visits. Lol, we were all served tomato bisque with no lobster. We thought it might be a mistake and asked our very professional waitress who checked and... More

The lobster bisque recipe has changed. Some people love it and some liked the old recipe better. The portion size should be consistent and I do not know why they were different. I apologize for not meeting your expectations. I am glad you enjoyed the setting and service. More

I have passed this place many times, but had never stopped. I was looking for a waterfront restaurant to have a late Sunday lunch. This place seemed to fit that bill. The view was incredible... watching the boats coming and going. The service was good. I ordered one of the specials - grilled marinated flank steak sandwich with peppers and... More

A group of us stopped in for dinner. Food was below average. The server kept telling us the chef had not finalized the recipes. Not sure I'd gamble again given the expense
