Great Birthday Dinner with Friends

Once again David, Dawn, and their team have made us welcome friends in their humble establishment. Understated in size and ambience, their service and food amply make up for it. Started the evening with a couple of great Islays from David's selection of single malt scotch whiskies(has to be the... read more

Am new to the area and had heard this was one of the better places to eat in town so had to give it a try. And I left perplexed as to why people rave about it. It is in a nondescript building on the south side of town that looks more like a 1970s one story home. Low ceilings,... More

I live in Sierra Vista, we moved here from CA where I had gotten used to have lots of good restaurants to choose from when we wanted to eat out. IMHO The Outside Inn, a locally owned restaurant, can compete with many of the restaurants I visited in CA. It's our preferred restaurant for a nice, quiet lunch or for... More

We had the special. It was a shrimp and scallop dish served with fresh veggies and linguini. Their deserts were too good to pass on so we ordered two and they served them on 4 plates so we all could share,

The restaurant has a charming boutique feel. The fireplace and cozy atmosphere are inviting. The food while pricey for the area, is good. The owner visits with you and adds to the warmth of your experience.

Excellent meal - again - at David Bain's wonderful family friendly Inn... unmatched cuisine in Sierra Vista. I had the Veal Piccata over Fettuccine, accompanied by a very nice petit sirrah, very satisfying... and the staff is always warm, friendly, and family. Thanks again David & Dawn for continuing to deliver great cuisine to our beautiful small town.

Probably the best restaurant in the area. The only one that I would say is of gourmet quality. The lamb is excellent . Good wine list. If they would only get good on tap beer.
