The atmosphere was nice. it was cold and the warm cozy nature of the inn made it welcoming. Staff was knowledgeable about the menu and were helpful and friendly.

My wife and I went here for dinner and really enjoyed ourselves. Service was excellent and the food was excellent. My smoked fish salad appetizer was awesome with both smoked salmon and smoked mackerel. Pork tenderloin and thai chicken were both great and there was a good selection of local wines too. Definitely would recommend.

We ate here and enjoyed the outdoor seating. The meal was okay and service was good. Price was not out of line. A little different take on jambalaya extra spice you and it was perfectly spiced as I ordered.

Three of us were staying at this Inn so we could afford, money-wise and driving-wise, to relax, dine and drink some fine potions. Stephanie, our delightful server, was very attentive throughout the evening. We might have preferred to dine on the patio, but the hostess, Tabatha, advised us that a party of 17 auto salespeople were going to be there,... More

Decent food and somewhat friendly staff. Nice patio for hot summer nights. They will serve past 8pm unlike other places in town. Watch your bill though. Our waitress doubled up on our bill every item we ordered and was suprised we noticed. Yikes.

Garrison Inn is a lovely old place across the street from Ft. Anne. You can't beat the location. Our accommodations were good, however, they could use a little upgrading in the rooms, bedding, furniture etc. The staff was very nice. We had to leave early and they were quite accommodating. There is a lovely restaurant on site and the food... More

We had stayed at another B&B but one of the recommended restaurants by the owners was Garrison House Inn restaurant. We arrived at 5 pm so we had our choice of tables. We choose to sit out on the screen enclosed verandha which had bistro tables and chairs. Lovely. However, if you have a preference you may want to make... More

After spending a day touring the Yarmouth & Acadian Shores, we decided to look for a restaurant while heading back to our Hotel. We were going to head back on HGWY 8 passing by the Kejimkujik Park but as we drove through Annapolis Royal we saw a nice restaurant - The Garrison House Inn, so we stopped there. It must... More

Good meal - not surprisingly, the fish was super fresh. Tasty local wines and delicious dessert. But gets crowded, so service can be a bit chaotic. But when you're on holiday anyway... it doesn't detract from a lovely meal.
