There were four of us. Everyone got something different, and each person enjoyed their meal very much. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They have many gluten-free items on their menu which was perfect for one of us.

After reading some of the reviews from last New Years we were hesitant, but decided to jump in. We sat in the dinning area, much less quiet and enjoy an outstanding dinner. I recommend the swordfish chop and prime rib, which my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed. The service was excellent as well as the wine list. Afterwards we listened... More

BNI is one of the best bar/restaurants on the Cape. An imaginative menu, a fine selection of wines, beers and spirits and attentive professional wait staff and bartenders make this a go to spot for me. They have Wed. wings night at $0.25 /wing, Thur. is $10 burgers with wonderful fries. Their fried calamari with sweet chili sauce on Asian... More

The food and drinks were better than expected and the service was great. It was a good blend of your unique and classic... More

Had their chickpea / vegetable stew thinking it would be a flavorful, and enjoyable dish. I was somewhat critical of the $22 cost of such a austere dish but decided to try anyway. It was a 1/2 can of chickpeas enveloped in a tomato mush on top of a mound of dry rice.

Dropped in for early dinner on a Friday night in October. No reservations. They sat us down right away, no problems. Waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We had a great clam chowder with lots of clams, some salads and spring rolls..awesome! Love the open space/atmosphere. Fun!

Recent name and ownership change but still a favorite with all! Friendly service, great food, large variety of entrees; supah munchies, TV if you want, cozy if you want that too. Early Bird specials. Prices are fair, food is delicious!

We recently ate at the inn and had an average dining experience, but were then horrified to be taken to task over the size of the tip we left (15%). The server brazenly voiced his displeasure in front of other customers to our acute embarrassment. Terrible behaviour and we won't be going back.

The quality of the food was fairly good and presentation on the plate was very nice but the service was a jumble with bread and wine coming after the appetizer. The scallops had a heavy tomato sauce that overwhelmed the lovely scallop flavor. Overall we were disappointed especially for the price. TV's at every conceivable location in the dining room...
