Bill and Shelly, the owners could not have done more for us.
From the moment we arrived and for the next 2 hours, we felt special !
The food,ambiance and service were very good.
Captain Linnell House is the best value on the cape.
Our waiter David was fantastic.
We all had a great time.
Thanks Bill, Shelly and David.

This is fine dinning at it's best. We went for a special evening and was wonderful surprised at the level of service and quality of the food. If you're on the Cape and want a wonderful meal and service don't look any further. Will definitely go back and looking forward to it.

We have dined at Captain Linnell House twice in the past three months and found it to be exceptional in each instance. Their menu is wide ranging (fish, steak dinners, along with great pasta dishes, etc) . The staff is very courteous and professional. The meals were always cooked to our desire.

Definitely upscale fine dining within a beautiful house and grounds. The food was amazing and clearly the result of great quality ingredients, skilled chefs, and well-honed recipes. My wife and I enjoyed the prime rib and roast duckling from the prix fixe menu and were impressed with every bite we took. We're already looking forward to our next visit to the cape to be able to dine here again.
