Go there every Friday night and eat in their Tavern/bar section. Order from a full and extensive menu or the daily "specials" menu featuring great values!

It is a very cool old school place with a large menu. Stick with the classics and do not stray too far from the Chowder, Prime Rib and the Lobsters. The entree's come with a salad and some extras so don't order too much. It is not a high concept place with lost of fancy food but they offer some... More

Whitman Tavern was recommended by the front desk lady at the hotel we were staying at. The Tavern is quaint, the service was acceptable but the food was a mix bag of good and not so good. The clam chowder is not your average tasting chowder. Weird is the best way to describe it. Not at all to our liking.... More

Been here few times and every time I go to the Whitman House/Bass Tavern I have a wonderful meal. I usually go on the tavern side where it's a little different. The meals are the same as the restaurant side but minus the cheese and crackers, salad and bread. It's not included in the meal but it's an option if... More

I recently visited North Truro for a weekend away with my husband. I grew up visiting the Cape with my parents for 2 weeks every summer and had always gone to The Whitman House for dinner. The restaurant hasn't changed, beautiful old Inn style restaurant with fireplaces going on a chilly, rainy October night! The food was still very good,... More

We stopped her on a bus trip of the Cape. What a beautiful place and the food was excellent. Staff was wonderful and the owner was even there making sure everything went smoothly. I had the pork chop and it just melted in your mouth. We had a spice cake for dessert that was also very tasty. The décor is... More

We were staying just down the street from this cute little restaurant and decided to try it. So glad we did. It was cozy and felt like dining at a family home. The food was excellent with much variety. Steaks, Prime Rib, Seafood and salad. The service was tremendous....I love this place!

We have been coming to Cape Cod since 1984 and the Whitman House has been on our dinner menu for many years. This year it was on our list again. We were a party of eight. We arrived without reservations and were seated within 10 minutes. The thing about the Whitman House is that it does not change. It is... More

Very distinguished dining room- we opted to eat in the "pub" section. This offered a simpler fare- that is not to say that the food was ordinary or bland...It was delicious and reasonably priced, My husband and I had a full meal with appetizers and sodas and the total cost with tip was under forty dollars. The diinning room section... More
