Editorial Review

by Contributor at Citysearch, October 10, 2006

Dine in style at one of America's oldest operating inns.
The Scene
Open since 1716--and it looks it: cavernous fireplace, beamed ceiling and tailored Windsor chairs. The spot was immortalized in 1863 by Longfellow in his "Tales of a Wayside Inn," and the same cast of characters almost seems to be here: married couples rekindling romance, families with dressed-up, well-behaved tots, and Oxford-clad regulars at the cozy, adjoining Red Horse Tavern.

The Food
The dining, too, is a little piece of history: Wellfleet Oysters on the half shell are fresh from the sea. Stuffed jumbo shrimp may not be unusual, but here they're served plump, juicy and rich. For Ye Olde flavor, go for the Wayside Lobster Pie--lobster meat in a light Newburg sauce with crumb topping. Just as deliciously retro but heartier is the filet mignon, broiled to order and slathered with brandied mushroom sauce.

I was looking forward to visting this historic location and my financee's family treated us; seemingly a stroke of luck. The Inn is lovely; worth a visit to wander round the fascinating property &... More >
