“Good family spot”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Four adults arrived with a hungry toddler in tow. The food was good but what stood out was the service. The waitstaff was great responding to our request to place the child's order early. They were very attentive a f could not have been nicer.

We love families at the Orleans Inn. We set up the play area off the lobby to entertain children while dinner is being prepared. It is fun to watch the children, parents and grandparents relax and enjoy the experience of the Orleans Inn.

“Sunday brunch”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Tried to eat on the patio but it was way too hot. Four of us ordered breakfast dishes at 11am with no problem. Good Bloody Mary's. Prices are good for breakfast and a water view of Town Cove. Would like to go back to try the patio for drinks.

A few days each season the deck is too warm. It is nice on those days to enjoy the air conditioning in the tavern and dining room. We are glad you enjoyed the Orleans Inn Bloody Mary's. They are a house specialty and are know as the best on the Cape. We hope you get a chance to enjoy the deck on a nice day. Thanks for your kind review.

“Beautiful historic building and scenery”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

We drove by this inn and were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and friendly family that owns and runs it. It's worth coming back to the Cape just to stay here again.

Thanks so much for your kind review. We love history as well. We are so glad you found us and appreciate the history of the Inn. It was built by descendants of the Mayflower pilgrims.

“Nice lunch - great views”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

The lower level covered deck provides panoramic views of Town Cove. Service was pleasant and the food was tasty and well prepared. Definitely worth a stop.

Our deck is the best kept secret on Cape Cod. We do not advertise as we are at capacity every day. We try to accommodate guests in one of our 3 dining areas. We appreciate your kind review.
