Reviewed 3 weeks ago

It was a dark and stormy night as hurricane/tropical storm Jose continued to swirl bands of wind and rain onto the Lower Cape, thus making for a delightful evening for my daughter and I to dine at the Old Yarmouth Inn. Inside, it was a warm and friendly oasis for the locals and traveler weary of the continued onslaught from Jose.

We have dined at the Old Yarmouth Inn numerous times, usually in the very open and spacious dining room (more space between tables than any other restaurant around, bar none) and tonight we elected to dine in the relatively cozy tavern, which offers a little different atmosphere and ambiance. The tavern has one of the longest bars in the neighborhood.

Anyway, after getting settled and catching upon our news, we scanned the extensive menu and made our well thought out decisions. Stefanie was being a bit adventurous, and she selected the Lobster Bisque and the Hand Tossed Caesar Salad with garlic croutons, homemade dressing, and Grilled Scallops.

I, being my usual stick-in-the-mud self, went for the Butternut Bisque and Roasted Atlantic Salmon with honey-mustard glaze, cranberry compote, roasted skillet potatoes and asparagus.

Both bisques were thick and creamy, and my butternut bisque was just brimming with wonderful flavors beyond the butternut squash.

Stefanie’s Caesar Salad was served in a bowl that was a good portion with the scallops. To me it looked like it was skimpy on the number of scallops, but Stefanie assured me that there was more there than meets the eye. I did not taste it, but it must have been very good, because finished every last scrap of it.

My Roasted Atlantic Salmon was a very good portion, and the presentation was what seems to be the more common approach these days, pile it on top of each other. It may look nice, but it gets messed up very quickly when it comes time to cut a piece of salmon, which unfortunately, had the skin removed. However, once I got by all that, all of the ingredients were very flavorable, and I only left one or two small potato halves, which is very unusual when I am dining out. Stefanie even made a sarcastic comment, asking if I was taking the potatoes home.

Even though we did not have dessert, we had spent a very delightful 2 hours in the Old Yarmouth Inn tavern, and Jose’s wind and rain had subsided a bit as we made our way across the parking lot to our cars. It is always a sheer delight to see Stefanie when I can, and when it is coupled with a dining experience like this, it is all that much better.

Pleasant atmosphere, good food with portions large enough to fill my husband. The wait staff was very attentive. We ate here after attending a holiday party here and were very impressed. Staff went out of their way to accommodate my vegan lifestyle.

Six of us ate at the Old Yarmouth Inn. We ordered by 6pm and got a 3 course meal for $28-$30 depending on the entree choice. Three of us ordered the sole and it was very well prepared with a delicate flavor. One person ordered the sirloin and one the short ribs. The portions were generous. Our first course salads were excellent. Very fresh and with interesting dressings. The dessert choices were interesting and I had the chocolate bread pudding. The wine list is extensive and not overpriced. We had a bottle of the Rombauer Chardonnay for $55 with a retail price of $35-40 in our area.

Thank you for enjoying the Three Course early Dinner Menu and for writing about your experience. The Orange-Lavender sole has become a crowd pleaser and will remain on the menu as will the Short Ribs. The other entree choices change every 8 weeks, so I hope you will have an opportunity to come and try something new - with a well priced bottle of wine!
Many Thanks, Sheila

My husband and I came here when we were staying on the Cape this summer. It was our first trip to Cape Cod and our Inn Keeper recommended this restaurant. It was one of the best meals we have ever had. The food was amazing and well priced for the quality. You can dress up or down as they have a more causal area and a nicer dining room. We decided to try another restaurant on our second night there, and although it was good, we still said we should have come back here for a second night in a row :)
