When you walk in the door you will want to spend time drinking in the lovely front desk area (for the Inn). It is well decorated and full of interesting things. I found the crew rather lacking in customer attentiveness. From the hostess, who I had to search for and did NOTHING to tell us about the different seating areas (bar, screened in porch, or elegant dining-room) to the waitress who was very "busy" in a restaurant with only 2 other tables (there was more wait staff than customers). The air conditioning was another problem. It was during one of our recent hot spells with temps well over 80 and the restaurant was close to the same temperature. It was uncomfortable - we found ourselves wiping the perspiration with out table napkins.
The lunch menu was a disappointment from all perspectives - choice, taste, portions and cost. We dropped over $30 pp on a chowder, sandwich (one of us had an appetizer as their lunch) and a draft beer. The views of The Cove are spectacular if you are lucky enough to get a window seat (my table was directly in front of the wall between two tables). We asked for a better view, but the staff would not seat 2 people in the open window tables because they were for 4 or more customers. This was my second and last visit - I will steer my summer visitors elsewhere. There are better places to spend your money in Orleans.
