Rehearsal Dinners

The rehearsal dinner is a special prelude to your wedding day…. and a rehearsal dinner at the Captain Linnell house is the perfect reception venue on Cape Cod to reflect the joy of the occasion!

As one of the Cape Cod’s most distinguished dining spots, the Captain Linnell House offers a series of intimate and romantic dining rooms. This historic location is just around the corner from Skaket Beach in Orleans.

Choose from entrées such as scrod in parchment with Maine crab, shrimp and a lemon-lime vermouth sauce, filet au poivre with a Zinfandel/peppercorn sauce, and duckling roasted ‘crisp’ 1/2 semi-boneless with a fresh raspberry, clove, honey demi-glaze.

As an additional service, we will also print and design the keepsake menus that are placed at each guests place setting.
