A lovely traditional inn with snazzy club-like Cape decor; two beautiful dining rooms; we were in one facing the beautiful garden fountain complete with lily pads with the orange and pink colors of the Cape Cod Bay sunset in the distance through a break. Excellent professional service and very reasonable wine list. An expansive menu with plenty of local seafood choices as well as steaks and one of the evening specials, a delicious, perfectly cooked prime rib. Enjoyed the lobster bisque, a less thick iteration than many places; but flavorful with a dash of bourbon. The Pearl Salad was a tasty three variety of small tomatos salad with morsels of mozzarella and basel....perfect end of summer flavors. The veal milanese was tender veal with capers, almost piccata style but for the heavier brown sauce. Huge portions. The full rib was served with a full plate of steamed broccoli, mashed potatoes and squash, more than even the heaviest eater could contemplate; and the veal came with a literal mountain of fettucine along with veggies. There are two reasons I’m not giving it a “5”, the first being that we thought both mains were a bit heavy on the salt; the second being that they are clear that entrees cannot be split, period. They are more than happy to package your leftovers, which is fine if you are a local with a kitchen, but didn’t work for us. In today’s world, as you get older, you tend not to have the huge appetite you once did, and we like to split things sometimes since it is a pure waste of food and our money, to have to order full apps and $30 plus-entrees; as many local restaurants have adapted to with menus with smaller plates and no problems with sharing; especially when you order drinks and a bottle of wine. So we very enjoyed our meal, and will return, with those two caveats. Nice atmosphere, very accomodating professional staff. Very good food, just too much of it for us, and cut the salt back a bit!
