They pride themselves on using fresh ingredients. The diverse offerings will normally include very creative salads, game, a southwest entire, a... More

This one of a kind small place has wonderful lunches and gourmet dinners. Servers make you feel special as your taste buds delight in special dishes. Reservations are recommended as it is limited in seating.

I normally don't eat chicken in fancy restaurants. I mean, why would you when they have lamb and steak and fish dishes that are terrific. But I gotta tell you, The Outside Inn does chicken so well, I can't help it. I recently had the Avocado Chicken. It was succulent and had creamy avo sauce that was to die for.... More

We have had lunch at the Outside Inn several times…dinner also. The food is always excellent and the employees friendly and helpful. It does tend to be a bit noisy…perhaps because of the tile floors but I would definitely recommend it.

This was our 2nd time visiting this restaurant and it won't be our last! Great little place. Food was excellent and service was very attentive! Had the salmon with herb sauce and risotto....excellent! Husband had huge shrimp cocktail and crab cakes, both which he raved about. The Baileys cheesecake with chocolate chips for dessert was outstanding!

Dinner last night was a nice experience. Reviews said place could be very noisy, but it was empty, so not a problem. Service was very attentive and food excellent, with one exception - wifes Mahi Mahi came out undercooked and had to re redone. They graciously comped our desserts as accommodation for the mis step. Everything else was top notch... More

You are always assured of a good meal recognizing that many in the area would consider it to be pricey. They pay attention to the details when it comes to food preparation.

The ambiance, quality of food and attention to detail was amazing. I usually order the specials they have which are different than anything else you'd find in our area. The seperate dining room is also a great place for private business dinners or large parties.
