Returned to Orleans recently and had lunch at Orleans Inn with some old friends. The service and food were good and the ambience was great. Can't beat lunch on the patio overlooking the Cove.More

We came to the Orleans Inn for lunch and drinks. The view was just gorgeous and very relaxing. We both started with clam chowder which was very good. For lunch I had the lobster tacos and my fiance had the lobster ravioli. The lobster tacos...More

Went here our first night in town because we wanted a restaurant on the water. The service was good, but the food was just OK. Overall we felt like this was more like a pub for drinking rather than a foodie place.

Thanks for your review. We see that your visit was several months ago. We offer 3 dining areas in peak season. Off season we may offer the pub, dining room or outside deck.

Great Summer spot on Cape Cod. Our group of 9 was accommodated on the outside deck without a reservation. The location, atmosphere, & service more than made up for the average food. We would return again with a large group next Summer.More

The food was quite good, but the service took forever. And frankly, we felt like we were the youngest customers there. The majority of the patrons seemed to be over 70, and I'm not sure why that is. The view was waterfront, but it wasn't...More

I had the chicken parmesan here and it was very good, considering that this isn't an Italian restaurant. The generous portion of chicken was nicely prepared with an appropriate amount of cheese and sauce. I chose the berry salad and it kind of stole the...More
