Old Jailhouse Tavern
Found in nearby Orleans, the Old Jailhouse Tavern is an historical structure that dates back to the beginning of the Nineteenth Century, when it was a room in the house of Constable Henry Perry, who used the room as a jail; the present day tavern is still situated within the original stone walls of Constable Perry's house. While enjoying the historic ambience of the restaurant, one can feast on traditional New England dishes, fresh seafood, salads, daily specials, and a selection of light fare items.
we had a meal in April...it was wonderful...upon our return in December, the shrimp in one dish and the scallops in another had clearly turned....there is no excuse for this in a place where you expect fresh seafood....when told about this, our waitress spologized briefly, and that's the last we heard about it...(one entree was deleted from the bill, but not the other)....at the very least, the owner or chef should have made the appropriate apologies....we will never return...
Neat little place. An old jail house they turned into a resturant. Food is pretty good, I've had a couple dishes that I wouldn't go back for seconds on but overall a nice place to eat out at while visiting the cape.
Since discovering this restaurant many years ago, my family and I have looked forward to eating here every time we go to the Cape. We love sharing it with our visitors and guests, and everyone we bring here loves it too. My personal recommendation for an appetizer would be the nachos; for an entree, the chicken pot-pie is superb. Sure to become a Cape Cod staple for anyone who goes!
Horrible food - horrible service - horrible GM.
What an awful experience. We arrived and no one was there to greet us. We ordered Lobster and were told after 20 minutes that there was only one lobster left...so we ordered the stuffed flounder. Flounder?? Really?? There was NO flounder to be found. $7 bowl of mac and cheese for my boys - heated up and nasty...we paid over $400 for 12 people (6 adults and 6 kids) and the food was horrible and the service might have been worse. The server hid from us and as our night when on, the GM watched us from afar, but never dropped by our table. DON'T GO - the jailhouse should be closed down.
This restaurant has everything for us when we go to the Cape. It doesn't feel like a tourist restaurant, it is old and quaint with history and the best food and drink around. Don't go with a small appetite as the food is so good and in large quantities. We look forward to eating at this restaurant whenever we go to the Cape. Has just about everything you could ask for on the menu.
