Enclosed patio comfort

The menu was seasonal and our food was very tasty. The waiter offered to add chicken to my grilled peach salad, since I wanted protein without a heavy meal - it was perfect. My friend enjoyed her Lamb Pastrami Sandwich, and she shared the plentiful garlic fries with me. We'd like to return some... read more

Lunch on the patio was lovely. I think everyone in our party order a burger. While mine was not the best I've ever had, it was good, and the scenery couldn't be beat.

What a find! The martini selection alone makes the Glenn Ellen Inn worth visiting. Great food, great service, great food.

Liked it so much, we took our two adult children there 10 days later. Both visits were enjoyable with excellent service. And both time we sat outside. Peach and Chevre salad is worth the try, even if just for the presentation. The food is very good, but not outstanding. I will say that the cioppino is very good, unusual in... More

Went to the inn last week, wanted martinis and oysters. Martinis were very cold(important) and oysters came on a plate of shaved ice with sculptures and shot glasses made of ice.Was a great touch we thought. The burger we split and was one of the best we had ever had, went back to have lunch a day later, but was... More

We live in town and frequent this restaurant several times a year. Its never disappointed us. They offer a large menu and daily specials, all deliciously prepared and a huge choice of martini's and other drinks. Seating is available without reservation in their bar area and reservations are recommended for the dining area and their patio. It has a cozy... More

We had lunch here and it was quite good. The service was excellent and the setting very nice. We sat in a little enclosed area wich was light and airy. We would have been outside but it was too warm that day. The outside tables were lovely.

We prefer to sit on the outside upper deck. We always get martinis to start and then move onto oysters and see what else hits us. Servers were great - including recommendations and extra bread for sopping up sauce. Just really like this place.

Loved my hanger steak and fries. The wait staff was perfect. Priced was very very reasonable. It was walking distance from our hotel Making reservations on open table was easy. I felt like family.

Some friends and I stopped for lunch at this restaurant as we had read the reviews and it sounded great. Plus....there are not many choices in Glen Ellen for lunch as the town is small. We absolutely made the correct choice! Three of us enjoyed fresh, tasty salads, and one of us enjoyed fish tacos. All quite nice, fresh, well... More
