We had lunch with old friends who live in Dennis. They recommended the Daniel Webster Restaurant. We were not disappointed. The food was terrific and the Garden Room added to our experience. The lobster rolls were to die for.

We always have a great meal here. Atmosphere is very conducive to a romantic evening. Inn is really old fashioned and that is part of the charm. Service is always attentive.More

Yes. They advertise as "Cape Cod Casual ". You can dress up (suit jacket) but it isn't necessary at all. Shorts or jeans are fine. Go. For is great and so is the service
