We went to Daniel Webster Inn for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Their conservatory room which is their best seating was unfortunately not available due to a Function. We were seated in a rather small room at a small table against the wall and my chair abutted the open door of the room. Once seated we were comfortable but I have to admit I was disappointed.
The service was excellent. The olive oil bread dip was very bitter so I opted for butter. The food was good but unremarkable. I had the lobster crusted cod which was described as having a stuffing like topping of lobster. It did not. It had a small piece of lobster claw atop the fish. I prefer more of a breaded topping on my fish. My husband had swordfish which was a special and he said it was very good.
On the whole we very much enjoyed our diner and stay at the Inn

 (Richmond)·Dined on October 30, 2017

Food was well prepared. I had the chicken pot pie and the others had the Cod. We did the pre-fix meals which included 3 courses (Appetizer, Entree, and Dessert) which was offered if you were seated by 5:45PM. Much more cost efficient than ordering off regular menu! Waitress was attentive, food good but lacked the 'wow' factor we experienced at another local restaurant the next evening. Ambiance was nice but dirty rugs, dusty furniture, etc left a lot to be desired. Would eat there again as there is not much choice in Sandwich for a 'fine dining' atmosphere but not someplace I would enthusiastically recommend.

 (Chicago)·Dined on October 29, 2017

Met friends for Sunday brunch. Atrium seating was nice and bright on a dark day and we were seated at a good table overlooking the koi pond, but large parties were too loud for the older member of our party. The Inn is a good choice for a New England dining experience, although the pub atmosphere of the other dining rooms is more authentic. Decor could use some upgrading.
Brunch food was good and generous portions. Extensive lunch options, as well.
Only negative was the server who spoke down to us, did not tell us the daily specials, and did not listen correctly to our orders.

Bit of an uncharacteristically off night for the kitchen, perhaps-- the oil for bread dipping was a little stale, my prime rib was very sinewy (though full of flavor), and the broccolini tough. The seafood risotto was outstanding. The desserts (grapenut pudding, warm with whipped cream, brownie hot fudge sundae) were awesome, and the appetizers (lobster chowder/bisque and bacon-wrapped scallops) were far better than the usual cliches you might expect by their titles, scrumptious. Excellent salads. The Conservatory is always lovely; on a Tuesday night not too late, the music was mostly aimed at the gray-haired set (American standards, Sinatra, Clooney, with some more upbeat versions mixed in) but not too loud and suited the general ambience. Good free parking, very attentive staff, prompt service, nice wine list, classy gift shop. There's also a great pub with the same food but a more laid-back vibe, great for lunches or after the game meals, but tonight was more special for us. Always a treat.

I was disappointed for my 93 year old mom!

I made a reservation. I didn't know I had to ask for the conservatory!

This is my mom's favorite restaurant and we drove down from Foxboro MA just so she could go there for her birthday!

The host was obviously having a bad day and he was not welcoming. And when my 93 year old mom asked to eat in the conservatory he just brushed her off and said we couldn't eat there! And there was lots seating available!!! I looked!!

I know she will want to go back again! But for an upscale restaurant, I would expect better friendly service!!

I won't return!!

Very disappointed!

And felt so bad for my mom that on her birthday that she was treated so rudely by the host!!

I've gone to the Dan L. Webster many times. It is a local favorite for fine dining and has an great Sunday Brunch. You can also go early for breakfast which is a great deal. Great food and reasonable prices. They use a glass atrium with is a great atmosphere and the staff is very friendly and well trained.

Staff were very accommodating. Food and service were excellent. We also enjoy the atmosphere of the Daniel Webster Inn.

P.S. The open table concept is a good way to make a reservation, but I didn't see a section to choose an area to dine in at the restaurant (i.e. lounge, conservatory, etc.).

We were there by 5:00, but did not receive the Early Bird menu. When this was brought to the attention of the waitstaff, the server shrugged it off and apologized. No solution. We also had to wait a while for our food, the bill and collection of the bill. I do not plan on going there again.

It's a shame because the last two times I went there the food and service was good.

The Daniel Webster offers quiet dining in their main dining room, the observatory, or casual dining in the Tavern. I greatly enjoy both. They also offer a cozy bar atmosphere.
The prime rib dinner was my current choice and came as ordered along with a baked potato and asparagus. Nice portion-not too big. Great Sunday breakfast as well. Always a stop when at the Cape.

The setting and service were fantastic. The lobster bisque was delicious and rich, and the calamari dark, crispy and tender. My my cod topped with lobster was perfectly cooked and quite good. The problem was the prime rib, which my elderly father couldn't cut, so the waitress graciously offered to have the chef cut it up for him. My husband managed to eat his prime rib, saying it was chewy and just ok. My father couldn't chew his at all.
Unexpectedly, my father's prime rib was taken off the bill, which was great service recovery on their part. Of course he chatted with other diners on our way out, telling them he hoped they had not ordered the prime rib, as it was terrible. OMG!
Overall a good experience, just a bad piece of meat. Would definitely try it again.

Classic New England dining, never skimping on details. Service was cordial, attentive, and best of all not rushed. Best French onion soup ever! Entrees cooked to everyone's satisfaction, especially cod topped with generous chunk of lobster meat. Visit to Sandwich on Cape never complete without a gathering of loved ones here. Maybe DW is due for a bit of sprucing up on the exterior, though probably end of very busy summer season. Something for everyone!
