Old stone walls were nice...would have been nicer without all the spider webs. We were seated in the room with the bar which was really loud! Entire meal was served just warm...nothing was hot and it all looked as if it had been sitting under a light for a while. Average at best. Service was slow. Nothing we ordered deserves an in depth description.

Went to the Old Jailhouse Tavern tonight was pleasantly surprised had one of THE best meals I have had in a while on the Cape. I am a local and I would recommend this wonderful place to anyone who wants a great meal at a very reasonable price. They have just done the whole place over and it looks amazing the hardwood floors and decor are a must see. Here is a hint for you, order the Fried Oreo Cookie Sundae for dessert, you have not tasted anything as delicious as this, it will have you wanting to go back again and again. The owner's were wonderful and were very attentive. Go for a terrifc dinner you will not regret it, one of the best.

This used to be the old jailhouse in Orleans. Neat ambiance. Good food. Would recommend, and would definitely go back.

The new management has done a great job of renovating the restaurant. However, the menu's prices have jumped up and the portions seem to have shrunk.
The old menu had many more choices and for much better prices. Maybe the summer menu will be better???
