Plan to eat outside on the deck from June through the end of the season-the views of the Cove and the gentle breezes create a much better atmosphere than the inside dining room which is a bit less comfortable and is stuffy. The salads are...More

Yesterday we had lunch at the Orleans Inn. This is a lovely family run restaurant and Inn. We sat at the bar and had excellent service from the bartender. The turkey club sandwich and French fries were good. It would have been nice if the...More

Have eaten here a few times over the years and those visits were good. This time, the food was pretty mediocre and the service hit or miss. The crab cake eater wondered if there was any crab! The lobster salad eater said it was the...More

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

Reviewed 9 September 2014 via mobile

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.

Reviewed 3 September 2014

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
