This is one of the Cape's well established dining institutions. The decor is traditional colonial with much charm. All of our group's choices from app to entree and dessert was excellent. The service was good. Expect to dig deep into your wallet as prices are extremely high. Very enjoyable evening but it could use new carpeting (old musty smell) and... More

We recently stayed at the Inn and had dinner in the Conservatory. Our meals were delicious however I ordered my filet mignon well done and it had to be taken back and cooked more. By the time the waitress returned with my meal, my husband had finished his meal. There was no apology for this at all. She only came... More

My parents were in town for a visit, and we decided to give this historic location a try. You'll have the option of sitting in the dining area or the tavern; we chose the tavern for its more relaxed setting, and the fact that the dining room only serves a limited menu. Our server was outstanding! She was very friendly... More

I used to dine here often at my father's request. He loved to come from off-Cape and have a good meal and a good glass of wine. He is no longer with us, so our Father's Day at the DW is no more. That being said, my friends and I occasionally dine here (I am a local). I love the... More

Stopped here in the tavern with friends for an after dinner drink & had a delicious dessert sampler too! Lynn, our bartender was so fun & friendly! We sat at the bar with our cocktails & played a bit of trivia with the cards at the bar. Can't wait to go back for dinner soon.
