We always have a great meal here. Atmosphere is very conducive to a romantic evening. Inn is really old fashioned and that is part of the charm. Service is always attentive.

The picture shown above is not the main dining room, its the tavern with pub food. The This review is about the main restaurant, the large glass room, high ceilings, and visually elegant, but thats where it ends:

Is the kitchen a mile from the dinning room? Only a few tables had people yet the evening was wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, , , The filet, at more than 40 bucks, was very very average, making it a real disappointment, then the extra $1.50 for anchovies on my caesar, and when it came out, there were only two (2), seriously? The place was sparsely populated and it wasn't too early or late, , , must have been a warning, , , It was such a long and bad dinning experience, I could not wait to leave.

Dear Truthinadvertizing ~
Thank you for the note about the picture of the Tavern vs. the Dining Room - we believe we have corrected that with TripAdvisor.

We are certainly disheartened to read your review of your dining experience and not only did we not meet your standards; I can assure you that it is not our standards either. We definitely do try to serve the finest food with the highest quality ingredients and served in a timely manner. I have personally reviewed your comments with our Executive Chef and have spent some time with both the kitchen and dining room teams reviewing them as well.

I certainly would like to welcome you back to the Inn someday should you decide to give us another try; give us the opportunity to exceed your expectations. Should you decide to try again, please contact me directly at the Inn.

Sincerely;
Jim Cammarata

Portions in the States are far too big for us so we generally have one course - appetisers if possible. This restaurant had a fixed price three course which was very reasonable so we treated ourselves

We both had caeser salad for starter, I had a small filet steak whilst husband had salmon. Both finished with key lime mousse. Portion size was small but perfect all together and food was well cooked

We sat in a booth in the ‘tavern’ which had a great atmosphere

We sat in the old dining room 6/25/18 for lunch, which is historic and just lovely to an ex- New Englander with fond memories of the Cape. Our waitress was warm and attentive- never rushing us- so appreciated! Our lobster bisques and half lobster roll perfect, very fresh lobster and a generous serving. Kale and blueberry salad fabulous with light dressing of orange- unusually good- also large so splitting is a good idea. Coffee perfect temperature and delicious grapenut custard .Highly recommended , and prices fair

We had dinner in the Tavern during a trip to the Cape. Tasty roast chicken for one of us, good scallops for the other. A "nice casual" atmosphere. Drinks were a little expensive, but good. The service was a little off--we had to remind our server to bring a sharp knife for cutting meat, and had to wave her down to request additional drinks. It was not very busy that night--not sure what was off. But we still had a good time.

Dear TheBigSuitcase ~
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review regarding your recent stay. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your entrees.
I have addressed the lack of attention to detail with our server staff ~ remembering things like the sharp knife and checking back to see how things are going; if anything else is needed. I do apologize that you had to "wave" her down; that definitely is not the standard of our service.
Thank you again for taking the time; I can only work to correct service issues if made aware. I certainly hope you have the opportunity to have dinner with us again; and I can assure you - I will work with our team to ensure the details are not missed.

Sincerely;
Jim Cammarata
