We always enjoy our meals at the Dan'l Webster Inn. The Inn is one of our favorite places for a date night as the booths in the Tavern make conversation easy and private. The food was outstanding. My husband had the prime rib--tender and delicious. I had the crispy grilled salmon with basmati rice--also delicious. Dustin, our server was attentive to our needs. We'll be back.

Had asked to be seated at a quiet table. Obviously we were early diners. This request wasn’t honored and as other diners were seated tables weren’t spaced with half the dining room empty.

On a cold windy fall night you can’t beat the Tavern at the Daniel Webster. It is cozy warm and has great Tavern atmosphere. The food is very good and the service very attentive.
My husband had the prime rib special which he said was good but a bit fatty. I had the petite salmon which was very good and cooked perfectly. We come here for dinner at least twice a season and always enjoy it.

I do love the restaurant. It's a beautiful room and the food was great.

I had 2 issues. The hallway between the front desk and the restaurant has an odd smell. The service was slow. We had soup, sandwiches and flatbread and it took a long time to come. The restaurant didn't seem that busy so I'm not sure what took so long.

My veal chop was cool and overcooked. It was supposed to be medium rare.
Silver ware had water spots.
Even though they advertised garden was open it was not. There was a wedding event. The bar was not available without a wait
I suggest calling first to determine what is available. This is not noted on open table.
Maitre'd was cool and not welcoming.

We’ve always enjoyed the Daniel Webster in, but unfortunately today was an exception. The service as always was pleasant and efficient. The conservatory is lovely and today it was quite nice by the light of an ending summer day. However the food left much to be desired. My bison was way under cooked And my husband’s veal was too well done.. That does not mean that they were oblivious to it however - they did offer to rectify it. We had enjoyed our appetizers and I chose not to stay longer, but bring home my bison to cook later. Again this was probably just a fluke .... at least I hope so. We will return to check it out again.

It was our anniversary. We were seated in a small room that was so noisy with no atmosphere . Bright lighting and no ambiance . The wait staff did offer to dim the lighting which was appreciated however it did not make much of a difference . Wish I knew there was a wedding taking place and our seating options would be limited to that room or the tavern . Not what I expected at all

We had Sunday brunch here. We sat in the small outside patio, there were very few people and we enjoyed the quiet. The conservatory was much busier. Our food selections (eggs benedict and green eggs and ham) were both excellent. I also highly recommend the pomegranate mimosa. Our server (Dustin?) was terrific.

Very nice ambience. The food was fair, but the prices were quite high. WE found the rolls to be so hard as to be almost inedible. The lobster chowder was very good, and I enjoyed the shrimp and grits, ut my wife found the seasoning to be odd. The tiny desserts were very good.

Our experience was outstanding. From the moment we were greeted until we parted, we felt like special guests. The menu offers a selection of choices and we opted for dinner specials of salmon and cod prepared in unique ways. Seating was not only comfortable, but the koi pond and greenhouse atmosphere were lovely and soothing. Following dinner we listened to an outstanding performance of the Cape Cod Chamber Orchestra a block away at Town Hall. We were delighted to learn then the Daniel Webster Inn was a supporter for the benefit concert for Champs Homes of Hyannis.

We will return with family and friends. Thank you all at Daniel Webster Inn.

Daniel Webster can be hit or miss. We've eaten there a good deal over the last 30 years. Sometimes a meal is oustanding, but the service is poor; sometimes the meal is just "so-so" but the service is good. On this occasions two of us had lunch. For what it was--burgers--the food was quite good and the service better frankly than I've come to expect over the last few years.

Generally the Dan L Webster is a great value for a wonderful ambience and one of the few places you can make a reservation for breakfast on Cape. I’m sure we’ve gone a hundred times over the years. Sunday was not the most positive experience however. Our reservation was for 9:30a. We arrived at 9:25 and we’re advised we were a bit early and there was no table available. It’s fine to say it’s going to be a minute but you don’t generally tell the customer that “they are early“ (when 5 min early) We also asked for a refill of our coffee pot which took two or three requests as did the request for orange juice. So overall not what we’d expect

We dined at the Conservatory, an elegant indoor room with large glass windows facing a garden with a pond containing Koi fish. The menu has plenty of choices and the dishes we had were very good (lobster bisque, Filet Mignon, braised duck, key lime pie). Service was quite good for the most part, thought it slowed down towards the end when the room emptied. A little pricey but worth it.
