About the Barley Neck Inn

The Barley Neck Inn has been hailed by Yankee Magazine, the Boston Globe and USA Today as one of the best restaurants on Cape Cod.  Housed in an iconic building on the way to Nauset Beach, the restaurant has long been considered the place to dine by both residents and visitors.

With its centuries-old, rough-hewn wood floor and soaring fieldstone fireplace, the tavern at The Barley Neck Inn is the epitome of rustic elegance. Polished service and linen-clad tables make it perfect for date night. A wide-ranging menu and approachable attitude offer family-friendly appeal. Within the 1868-built sea captain’s home are four intimate dining rooms which provide a sophisticated setting for celebrations of any kind, including wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners and après-wedding brunches.

The Barley Neck Inn serves dinner year-round. Our menu, which changes seasonally, focuses on fresh, local ingredients prepared with a whimsical touch. We also offer an array of craft cocktails and locally brewed beers, and a thoughtfully chosen wine list. Live music on weekends rounds out the fun that is The Barley Neck Inn.
