Diner Reviews
  • "As usual, the Sunday brunch was excellent, and a real value at $25.95 pp. My wife and I make a five course event of the meal; schrimp plate, salad, soup, entrée (the signature seafood crepes are outstanding), and desserts. The view of the water pond and gardens from the Conservatory room provides a very nice ambiance."

  • "It was my birthday. I have many food allergies and restrictions. They modified my choices to accommodate them and still managed to serve an attractive and delicious meal, including dessert, which is a rarity for me."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Chose due to Open Table connection & prix fixe menu. Enjoyed scallop cake & tuna tostada for apps & fruits of the sea & timbale of sole for entrees. Mango sorbet & grapenut pudding for dessert. All good. Regular menu quite extensive & tempting but this week's vacation was about trying new restaurants w/an eye towards frugality, ergo the prix fixe route. Our waitress, Nancy B., was friendly, yet polished & very professional. Ate in main dining room in cushioned high-backed chairs overlooking water garden & lovely. Tavern also looked very inviting for crisp fall or snowy winter evening. All-in-all a wonderful surprise, not knowing if "old school" would = "dated", but clearly they know what they are doing. Elegance reigned."

  • "Haven't been there in 23 years. Remember it as a much nicer restaurant with great service. Service was just ok and the prime rib tough. Onion soup was great. Will go back for old time sake but was disappointing."

  • "We had a great meal served by a knowledgable and attentive waitress. Would highly recommend ."

  • "All staff and the Inn were so very pleasant. It was toward the end of the brunch time but no one rushed us out. We were allowed to continue typical family reunion conversations at our table. Made the occasion very special to us. Thank you."

  • "A warm welcome. Delicious fresh seafood. Friendly service. Charming ambience in a historic location. I have not been here for a while, and found it much better than I had remembered."

  • "We have been here before and we always have a great meal. Service was good and I will return"

  • "The staff could not have been nicer! We got married in the inn's garden then dinner and the staff acknowledged our marriage and made us feel so special. The meal was wonderful and made our special day so memorable."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "Lots of ambiance - there is a "Tavern" dining room and a "Conservatory" dining room. The menu is extensive and creative, but some dishes do not live up to the hype. The biggest problem we had was VERY slow service - no one seemed to be in charge, and the meal dragged on for over 2-hours (Monday night). The Inn was fairly busy, and there was obviously some big deal going on in Sandwich, as when we exited there were hordes of people, police, detours, etc. The Daniel Webster is "good," but not excellent."

  • "My husband and I came for our wedding anniversary. We had an excellent time at the spa. Dinner was fantastic and romantic. Service was great. Room was wonderful. Breakfast was an extra treat. Would recommend it to all of our friends. Thank you."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "The food was nice, if a little cold by the time it reached us. But there were a lot of guests dining at the same time, as well as a wedding party next door. Would try this place again on a quieter evening (we went on a Friday night)."

  • "We had a delicious brunch to celebrate a birthday. Food wonderful, and beautifully presented."

  • "Any meal at Dan'l Webster is a fine meal. First, the food is always fine and special. Everything else just falls into place. I would and do recommend Dan'l Webster for a casual meal or a special occasion."

  • "We went to the Daniel Webster to celebrate a birthday. We were very happy with everything. Our table was in the conservatory over looking a koi pond. Our dinner were excellent. I had the wok fired salmon ....delicious and nice and hot. My husband had veal oscar and was very happy. The service was perfect. It was a lovely evening and we will go back....soon."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "As always, we had a great lunch in the conservatory which gives you the feeling of being out in the garden but without the heat! Great food and friendly service!"
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "As we entered the lobby, we were struck by the strong smell of mildew. Fortunately we were not tortured with mildew smells in the dining room. We received a warm welcome at the reservation desk. We received a card from a friends call in to buy us drinks - nice touch. Everyone knew that it was our anniversary because I said that on the online reservation form. The food was OUTSTANDING. Our wait service was bland, not cheerful, and proved to be sub-par when we realized there was only one perfunctory check back without an offer to refill our water glasses. We waited some time to obtain our bill. We left a 20% tip because we know there are other people who worked hard to make our experience special. We're hoping the tip was shared."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "The atrium-style dining room gives you the feeling you are dining in a lush garden! The wine list and menu will satisfy the gourmand, and the early bird prix fixe menu help the budget-conscious. They also demi portions if your partner is a lighter eater. and most important...the food is terrific (I loved the salmon) and the service was first class. There are several outstanding restaurants on the Cape, and this is one of them."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Contemporary New England dining. A great dinner and the early bird special was an added surprise."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We visited on our 29th anniversary. We had been here on previous occasions and were looked forward to a return visit. We left disappointed. The Ambience was just as we remember and expected. We were particularly disappointed in the meals. We started with stuffed mushrooms, the stuffing was not bad but without flavor. I had Veal Oscar, the veal was slightly over cooked and the sauces were without flavor. My wife had Swordfish which was also without any flavor. In summary, the quality of food was good but was generally without flavor."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "We have been to Daniel Webster a couple times a year and have always found it to be good. Been there with family, husband and ladies, no matter what group always enjoyed it. Favorites at lunch are their chicken pot pie. Brunch on Fathers' day was wonderful."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Went for breakfast but felt rushed as the buffet was taking the staff's attention. Next time I'll take my elderly parents a day there is no buffet to get ready for."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Service impeccable! Food-a party for the palate! Ambiance of your choosing. There are 4 dining rooms and a tavern."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "My wife and I were on the Western Cape for a week and wanted a slightly more elegant dinner spot for our anniversary. The Dan'l Webster Inn did not disappoint. The ambiance and decor are "old money". It was wonderful. We shared the Kobe beef ravioli appetizer. Simply put it was amazing. My wife had the champagne salmon which she loved, cooked to perfection - and i had a steak with grilled tomato and croquets - delicious (warning - medium rare actually means rare). With that being said, overall we had a wonderful experience. The service was on the money. The food exceeded our expectations. It was the right place for us to spend a quiet, romantic anniversary dinner."

  • "Excellent food and service. Ask to sit in Conservatory."

  • "So enjoyed our lunch with friends. Loved the setting in the solarium"
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "Tavern had widest choices of menu options so we decided to dine there. Probably for our anniversary we would have preferred the main dining room, but, again, felt the Tavern offered a breadth of options."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "This kitchen produces a good meal but far from a great meal. The menu is excellent, the presentation attractive, the cooking techniques acceptable, the taste lacking, Very similar to what one would get in an upscale restaurant of thirty years ago, long before the US developed the outstanding cooks it has today. It's sad because the restaurant is lovely, the wait staff excellent. If the goal is to meet the tastes of the elderly, they have met it. If the goal is to meet the standards of its competitor next door, they fall far short. A new chef could turn this venue around in an instant."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Wonder place for a romantic dinner. We have been coming to the Inn for 3 years on Memorial Day weekend. The food is always exceptional and always exceeds our expectations. The dinner specials are always wonderful."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "My cousin and her husband were visiting from Seattle so I reserved a table for six at the Daniel Webster Inn for lunch. We had outstanding service accompanied by a great wine selection and a wonderful choice of appetizers and entrees. I really recommend the Lobster Chowder, the Lobster Grill Cheese and the Chicken Pot Pie."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The service and the food were not good. We all said we would probably not go back again."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Limited menu options.. Entrees selected were prepared and presnted in a manner not up to the standards I remembered from having dined there in the past. Would not return unless some change took place and I was aware of favorable reviews from other diners."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "The steak was dry and the shrimp was tough. We went for resturant week so maybe that is why the food was OK. Probably won't go back for the money we paid. "

  • "Booked a lunch for a group of friends on a visit to Sandwich. It worked out to be everything I had hoped; great atmosphere, excellent food, and very attentive and helpful service. You can't miss here!"

  • "My family chose the Dan'l Webster Inn for Mother's Day this year. It was fantastic. The service, food and atmosphere was great, and just what we were looking for. We had been here for Mother's Day once when our kids were little, and it was also a great experience. It was nice to find it just as wonderful now that our son was here with his wife! We enjoyed our time, and felt very relaxed, never rushed. Thank you, for a wonderful Mother's Day dinner!"

  • "The food, the service and the ambiance were first rate. Great experience for the price. Definitely deserves a return visit."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We were a bit disappointed with the very slow service (may have been the kitchen contributing to that?); and the prices seemed quite high to what you actually got quantity-wise.. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We decided to have dinner in the tavern on the Saturday night of our stay at the Inn. The food was excellent and the service was great. There was a great selection of food to choose from. After our wonderful meal we had a berry bread pudding with ice cream and whip cream that was great. The next morning we had breakfast in the beautiful dining area. The breakfast was the best I have had in a long time. We will return."

  • "This is not the first time that we dined at Dan'l Webster Inn but each time is a charming experience. The food is always excellent and, on this particular night, we had the good fortune to have Christopher as our waiter. He has charm that goes along with the whole atmosphere of DW. It was a memorable dining experience and was enjoyed by the four of in the party. It is definitely worthwhile to dine there."
