We happened upon the Ocean House and being casually dressed opted for the waterfront patio! Rachel took great care of us! I had the lobster roll and was not disappointed!

We had our anniversary dinner there. Recommended by Pelham House Resort staff. Excellent meal. Went without reservations so the only available seating was in the bar/lounge.

Our family had our Thanksgiving dinner there this year. We had 15 people and the experience was Stellar.

No Sunday Brunch. I would also recommend the old Yarmouth Inn.
Hi, We just moved to the cape, someone told us you have off season specials, a three course menu for $25. Could you tell me when that starts, what time frame and can you make reservations for 2? Thank you, Anne Marie
