Tani our server was amazing. Attentive, informative and friendly. We went for my fathers birthday and the food was great! Traditional New England dinner. We ordered the prime rib, stuffed shrimp, sea bass, Cesar salad, steamers and caprese salad. Ambiance was relaxing and view great! Can’t wait to go back!

The Popponesset Inn at New Seabury, just yards away from the coastline, offers sweeping views of Nantucket Sound and Martha's Vineyard. The Inn itself is a 50-year-old restored Cape Cod style restaurant that offers lighter fare in a relaxed setting and a 200-seat tented oceanfront facility for weddings and private functions.

The building itself was the Officer's Club for the Otis Air Force Base in the late forties.

Cape Cod residents and vacationers have long enjoyed the spectacular view and fabulous cuisine at this very special spot.

This was an unexpected delight for dinner in our hotel. My 10 year old son & I had an excellent meal there & he especially enjoyed the delicious mocktails & the cool presentation of the kid’s meal in a bento box. I loved the summer selection of fresh bread with assorted spreads & the spinach ravioli was delicious. The service was exceptional as well. Highly recommend 😊
