We found the entrees to be strange, the choices were poultry, fish, and pork. The one beef item was a burger. There were limited starches, no potato and the vegetables were very limited. Choices such as Yucca, Brussels sprouts, Polenta cake, celery root, and broccolini. The waitress asked if it was a special occasion and I told her it was our anniversary. My dessert plate arrived with Happy Birthday written beside it. I think the chef is trying too hard to be sophisticated. I would like to try lunch there, I will not go back for dinner, it is also very expensive. The view is the greatest asset.

We had a beautiful evening at the Pelham. We were able to watch the moon as we sipped our drinks and ate our delicious dinner.

The roof deck was really windy because of the rain. We were seated in front of an open panel and we were getting wet and my hair was flying into my mouth a lot . We asked to be moved to another spot which they did. It improved the rain situation slightly. We didn’t get bread until we asked . The food was not great and you got very little for the money. My husband has the venison carpaccio and it was inedible . The Brussels sprouts were the best thing we ate. The roasted chicken breast was cold and I was afraid it was not cooked throughout. The polenta that came with was rock hard and difficult to eat. My husband had the scallops and there were like 5! He was done his entree in minutes - not enough food there . For dessert, my husbands coffee was cold. The dessert of pears and cream wasn’t great. Our waiter, Kyle, was chatty but we were definitely not his priority. We were disappointed it was raining but more disappointed that the food was so lackluster considering how expensive this place is.

I ordered the Halibut meal and should have asked the waitress more details on the sides. Noted it had asparagus, which I like but did not know what the other sides were. I did not realize the fish would be served in a bowl soaked in a spicy tomato presentation with the asparagus also in this mixture. I have reflux and could not eat the dish. Had to switch plates with my wife who did not enjoy it. I brought the issue to the waitress promptly after being served hoping it might motivate her to see if the meal could be swapped out but received no offer. I understand and my wife told me I should not have expected the offer but regardless I was very disappointed. My fault for not asking more questions when I was not totally sure how the halibut would be prepared. However, I thought, or hoped, an upscale restaurant would consider the circumstances. This was my second time at the Pelham House. Not planning on returning for a third as there were not the typical mainstream items on the menu that I enjoy, which is unfortunate as the view is phenomenal. Please note that I received excellent service from the waitress but I expect from past experience she knew the managers opinion of replacing meals so the offer was not made. Again, the issue could have been avoided if I was more proactive on checking the menu items.

The Pelham House is my new favorite restaurant in Dennis. Not only are the views breathtaking, the food is always consistently delicious. Although the prices are a bit high it is a Resort setting with Outstanding service. Some favorites are the burger (not your regular burger), The crabcake, calamari, and the other day I had chicken tacos. Fantastic!

Would not eat there on a damp, cool or inclement weather. Chose the rooftop patio and it was very, very noisy given all the side plastic "walls" were down and the roof vents closed. The ambiance was not very becoming for fine dining. Manager did what he could to accomodate our requests to adjust ceiling vents, but then it got very windy. Should have stuck with the bar. Definitely go there when the weather is nice, warm and you can take in the view. Skip it on a bad weather day. Kristen, our server, did a wonderful job at tolerating our requests.

We loved our time at the Rooftop Restaurant! The beverages and food were delicious. The menu seemed to provide a great variety of choices. The decor and atmosphere were lovely! Our only complaint was that the noise level made it a little challenging to hear each other.
