Dan'l Webster Inn, imbued in history, proudly advertises its fine dining experiences. Indeed, our meals were outstanding, well-portioned with innovative twists on Cape Cod standards, such as their pesto crusted cod. However, the entire experience was marred by the slow and inattentive wait staff. While technically competent, our wait person in particular was utterly disinterested in our culinary enjoyment. In...

Went to The Inn on our first evening in Sandwich. Hostess was kind and efficient, took us to our table in the dining room. Decor of the place made us feel as if we had travelled back in time to mid 80's. Friendly and efficient waiter, who was extremely helpful and understanding of needed adjustments due to food allergies. I'd... More

The food in the restaurant and tavern seems to get better every year, the menu gets more extensive but the tavern is still a relaxed place to eat.

We dined there while staying at the Inn. The food is excellent I loved the Wok Fired Salmon and the smoked salmon bagel for breakfast. They have a good selection of wine moderately to high priced. The service is excellent and if you love tea they have a decent selection for breakfast.

My husband and I have been visiting the Inn every year for a weekend for years. When it came to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary, we thought immediately of the Inn. We arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation that was booked months in advance. The restaurant was not full at all. We asked if it would be possible... More

We were going to be on the Cape for a couple of days with friends who don't get to the Cape very often. We wanted them to see historic Sandwich and experience the fine dining of the Dan'l Webster. It lived up to our expectations on all accounts.

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Eastham. The hotel staff was friendly and attentive and the dining room well beyond what I expected to find in a 300+ year old inn. The conservatory-like structure was clearly a more recent addition and contained lush, well cared for hanging plants, a water feature just outside the glass, and art... More

We did the Early Evening Prix Fixe menu available between 4:30 - 5:45 pm which was a great deal. $25 for a salad/appetizer/soup, entrée, and dessert in the beautiful Conservatory surrounded by huge plants hanging from the ceiling and an outdoor waterfall visible through the windows. The salads were large and fresh. I got the Lobster Chowder for an additional... More

5 of us stopped for dinner while on Cape Cod. We sat in the tavern. We just missed the early bird 3 course special by 5 minutes! It ends at 5:45 and seems to be a great deal. 2 guests had the lobster encrusted cod with asparagus, I had the chef's special tomato and watermelon salad and margherita pizza, and... More
