We have come here for years with a high school group from the 1950's. The new menu is more limited. There was widespread dismay that the Fish Sandwich of the past was missing.

It’s fine. It’s nice to get out of the house and share brunch with friends. The Coonamessett Inn is a fine choice, just fine. The spread was sufficient, fine enough variety, and of fine quality. I would have appreciated some sign cards identifying what product...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.
