Description: Celebrating our 30th anniversary, the historic 1840 Captain Linnell House is home to Cape Cod's most distinguished fine dining restaurant as well as an award winning Cape Cod wedding, rehearsal dinner, and corporate venue site. We are located in Orleans, MA around the corner from Skaket Beach, a picturesque setting for a Cape Cod beach wedding ceremony. The Captain Linnell House is chef owned and offers expertly prepared classic fare - from iced Wellfleet oysters, escargot and baby kale salad, to entrees of rack of lamb, Black Angus prime rib, roast duckling with fresh raspberries, scrod n' parchment, and much more. We go as local and organic as possible. A three course $35.00 Prix Fixe Menu is offered from Mid-September thru June. Enjoy dining in one of our unique dining rooms. Our garden room looks out over a spacious lawn with the sunset in the distance. Fireplaces grace the other two. We are off the beaten path but finding us is memorable!

Have been going here for years and was non impressed this time
Perhaps because we ordered the fixed price. There was no creativity with the sides - a scoop of mashed a scoop of squash and a broccoli floret
Need to make the menu more contemporary

Setting is beautiful

We had our son's rehearsal dinner at The Captain Linnell House and it was perfect! Working with Shelly to plan the event was stress and worry-free. She could not have made the process easier. The night of the rehearsal dinner the room looked beautiful. We started out with hors d'oeuvres that were hand selected by Bill, chef and co-owner, and they were absolutely delicious! They all got rave reviews from our guests. The sit-down meal was just as delicious. Bill went above and beyond! If you are looking to have a special event, look no further. The Captain Linnell House is the place to have it!.

We had a delicious meal that was served by an excellent and friendly waitress. My husband had prime rib and I had seafood and we were very pleased with our meal. We sat by the window overlooking the beautiful gardens and pond. We had a relaxing time and a leisurely meal. There aren't many places like this on the Cape.
