We dined in the Red Room following my mother's memorial service and the luncheon was well recieved by all. The staff was attentive, meals were well prepared, satisfying to vegans, vegetarians and carnivores.

The oldest inn on Cape Cod operating in the same location since 1896. No doubt some back in 1696 were skeptical at naming a new joint the "Old" Yarmouth Inn. But the owners apparently were farsighted. Today's owners are farsighted when it comes to putting a plate before you that pleases both eyes and taste buds. I started with the... More

It is clear that your interest in the Old Yarmouth Inn was a combination of food and history. Having an Inn that dates back to 1696 has brought us history buffs from all over the place. Its amazing to think of the number of people that have walked through the doors in the past 319 years! I am so glad... More

My husband and I are year-round Cape residents and love the Old Yarmouth Inn (we eat there at least one a month if not more). The food is absolutely delicious and the atmosphere is quintessential old Cape Cod. The staff is friendly, helpful, and attentive. There's simply no other restaurant like it on Cape!

Dinner with 6 family and friends. The Old Yarmouth Inn is incredibly charming, the oldest inn on Cape Cod I believe is the moniker. They have a very good wine list and wines by the glass that pair very well with the cuisine. I had the field green salad, 1/2 dozen Wellfleet oysters and the duck. The oysters had a... More

On the Cape for Labor Day & have gone here twice. The old world charm, pleasant staff, wonderful drinks & superb food make it worth the trip. The Sea foods are scrumptious, get the bisque, good bread = good everything else. They differentiate the experience from the Dining room or Tavern. It has a different menu and I haven't eaten...

My husband I had dinner at this quaint, and charming, restaurant our 1st night on the Cape. There is a tavern area, as well as a main dining room.

Fist time visit. Early dinner. Greeted by friendly Hostess. Dining room well appointed and clean. Nice views of neighborhood from the dining room. Service a bit slow, but food was worth it. From bread basket to appetizers to entrees, all were very tasty. A bit pricey, but to be expected on The Cape. Casual dining at its best on the... More

I was here in May with a friend and found the owners and staff to be warm and welcoming. I knew I would be returning in late summer with my daughter and family. My grandchildren are 3 and 5.

Four couples from an off cape town who all now live in different areas decided to meet on the cape. Being the locals we suggested the Old Yarmouth Inn. The food, relaxed pace of the meal and staff made for an excellent reunion. The staff even took several group photos for us
