fresh and made fresh food.

They always offer a special dinner. The cob salad for lunch is the best. The service is wonderful. The have a really good wine selection and they don't mind offering you a sample of the wine you might want to try.

It's expensive and fancy, but our chicken and pork chops were dry and uninteresting. However, the risotto was delicious. For the price, we probably wouldn't return.

Fine dining in a cosy atmosphere. A little out of town (4 miles south of Sierra Vista on Hwy 92). Great menu and food preparation and presentation is excellent. Very reasonable prices for the quality of the food presented.

It would be easy to pass this place by; it's south of Sierra Vista in an unassuming, semi-industrial area. When we went for lunch it was really crowded, mostly with groups of senior women. Because it was so busy we were surprised there were only two waitresses, who were good enough but certainly not as attentive as they would have... More

Romantic place for a nice quiet dinner. Food is great and it is the nicest place for dinner in the entire Sierra Vista region.

Been going here for years, friendly staff, great food. Don't like it that they take your plate away as soon as you are finished (while the other person is still eating)

This restaurant was very nicely decorated and catered to all of the different diets at the table we had a paleo, and vegetarian. The food was delicious and decent proportions. We did have a little check shock at the end of the meal but totally worth it for our night out on the town. Great place for a special evening... More

I've been ignored by the staff at Outside Inn twice, until my growling stomaches forces me to seek lunch elsewhere. Both times, a harried server Bussels by my husband and I and cheerfully shouts they'll be right with us, but then 5-10 minutes go by with us standing in the reception area. Once, and I'll forgive. Twice, and I'd be... More

Thank You for taking the time to offer a review of The Outside Inn. I am sorry that you were unable to be seated, but I am glad that the waitress responded in your words "cheerfully". Sometimes when our small restaurant is full and guests have to wait for a table to open up they encounter a wait. This is... More

Excellent food and service! Had a wonderful discussion two different nights with the owner who was very helpful. Saw couples coming here to celebrate special occasions. Very enjoyable. Went back twice.

Being new to Sierra Vista, my wife and I decided to take a drive around town...just to check things out. Saw the Outside Inn and decided to give it a try. From the outside, it doesn't look like much, a converted ranch style house. inside also looks like someone house, except it has numerous tables. The big surprise was the... More
