Met by a really friendly guy (the Owner I think). Order taken and food Brought out swiftly. I ordered fish sandwich which was lovely - the best I'd had whilst staying in Cape Cod area. All staff friendly.

Given its position as a revered restaurant in town for fine dining, my expectations were high. It was good, but it failed to live up to its reputation. The pork was well cooked, but not overly flavorful. The cod was slightly overcooked. The service was...More

Central House at the Crown We believe good farming is worthwhile, and that it makes better food. We buy from small farmers who raise their animals outdoors, in grass and trees - not on corn and hormones. We buy heritage breeds that Americans have conserved for generations. Our seafood comes directly from New England waters. Our vegetables are as local as the season permits and we buy organic whenever possible. We seek out food that supports our values, and we think you will notice the difference. Please join us, and enjoy some truly good food.
