I originally found this bistro 3 years ago and had lunch and made it a point to return on my most recent trip to Cape Cod for a lunch with friends. I love the town this is in - very quaint, I love the building this is in - the wood and stained glass is just beautiful, and I love... More

Wonderful little inn and bistro tucked into the heart of sandwich! Great ambiance, fantastic food... a stones throw from eclectic shops like the brown jug, heart of stone and the Saint johns resale shop!

We had 2 excellent dinners here. The menu is varied and makes good use of local produce. On one evening there was a piano player adding atmosphere to this superb restaurant. We also had 2 great breakfasts

Went here for lunch to celebrate our anniversary. Luncheon menu is diverse, we stated with a peach salad, my wife had a lamb burger, while I had the curried chicken sandwich. Both were tasty and nicely complimented by a glass of wine. Dessert was great, do not miss the rice pudding with the peppercorn ice cream The interior of the... More

The story behind this site is amazing. The owner converted a Roman Catholic church in a restaurant and Inn. There are many tongue in cheek references in the layout of the establishment (the back of the bar used to me confessionals, for instance) The building has begun to show it's signs of wear and the same with the staff. Turn-over... More

We only eat here a few times a year as it is pricey but it is also a very fun yet elegant place to dine. Brunch is terrific and more affordable than dinner. Beautiful renovation from the church it once was. First class all the way!

Last night we found this place on Tripadvisor and gave it a try. What a find. The sword on a panzanella salad was unusual, wonderful, delightful and original. Every element was perfect in preparation, presentation and taste. Perfect. One of us had the daily fish special on a bed of cooked kale and a corn meal like layer. Three wonderful... More

Each of the past 5 years, I've typically eaten at the Belfry approx. 4 times- always with a reservation and usually hosting guests/ family. The food is always good. Previously I found the atmosphere a bit stuffy and the owner's reception luke warm to chilly, but the food made it worth it . Fast forward to this past month- Same... More
