    Was hoping for a more satisfying Thanksgiving Day meal but was very disappointed. ALL food which should have been served hot was served just warm... Soup flavoring palatable; salad skimpy; rolls were cold (not room temp as waiter stated when asked) butternut squash and stuffing were pasty; potatoes flavorless; turkey was moist and acceptable; should have passed on dessert and cocktail which was barely consumed. To be clear, I had eaten here twice over several years and found food to be mediocre, I was hopeful for this holiday meal to be acceptable but it wasn’t. Therefore, I’m done… lesson learned.

    This is a beautiful historic inn filled with charm and character located in beautiful Sandwich, MA. We had Thanksgiving dinner here 2 years ago during Covid and they did a beautiful job including a gluten free Thanksgiving dinner which accommodated my gluten allergy. This year was the same until dessert arrived. I had ordered the Indian Pudding which is gluten free and my husband ordered apple crisp. Both were topped with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream and were in identical dishes. There was no wooden pick to indicate an allergy as there was with my turkey dinner which was also brought separately. I understand how this happened, but I took a bite and tasted apple and realized she must have accidentally transposed our deserts. When we were able to get her attention and explained what had occurred, this is the troubling part, She stated that she had placed the desserts on the table properly and WE "must have switched them". I understand people make mistakes and it was busy, it is Thanksgiving, but to accuse a customer to cover her own ineptitude is unacceptable. I am thankful I suffered no serious side effects but will hesitate to eat here again.

    This venue is beautiful. The service all around was great. The food did not match the experience. Nothing looked like it had much thought in it. The cold rolls started the meal. Corn chowder and small salad followed. The entree looked like it was served cafeteria style. An ice cream scoop of mashed potatoes and squash, both with a blender consistency ( nothing like homemade). Also on the plate was an unusual cranberry sage stuffing and several slices of turkey breast and peas with mushrooms. A strange colored tasteless gravy added to the confusion. Nothing tasted homemade. I expected better.

    Very nice, historic building. The place was packed, but was still easy in and out. Many different seating rooms. The food was great, turkey was very moist. We arrived 30 minutes earlier than reservation, but were able to be seated. I would do Thanksgiving there again, even though a little on the pricey side.

    The cost of a meal for what i received was disappointing. The food itself tasted fine, however for a sandwich it was relatively sparse of the corned beef it was supposed to have.

    Service was excellent! Waitress was attentive ,a knowledgeable and friendly. The dinning room beautiful. Food was good, but presentation was little lacking. Food could have just been a notch tastier, and a little less heavy. Wine was excellent. Creme brûlée had a great top perfect crack but little too much sugar in the base. All and all never disappointed with Dan’l Webster but given the ambience and service just wished the food would hit the top tier as well.

    Overall the restaurant was comfortable and warm. Our waitress was wonderful and did a masterful job despite there not being enough wait staff. Our biggest disappointment was that we had requested to sit in the Conservatory and chose the restaurant in large part for this experience. Two hours prior to our reservation we were notified that the Conservatory would not be open. This was a huge disappointment.
