Historic place, unimpressive food

Not our idea of fine dining. Our waiter served our dinners and disappeared. Water and pop glasses remained empty until we waved the waiter down. We agree with a previous poster that the dishes looked like they were resurrected from the 70s. On the plus side, we and our teenage grandson thought... read more

We love eating on the tavern side because it's busy, authentically old style with modern amenities. The restaurant side is intimate, quiet and comfortable. The food is always great with incredible breadsticks. I would have given it a 5 except the wine portions are very small for the price. The beers are good on tap, however.

Not much good to say about the Fenton Hotel. The look and feel of the facility is shabby. Sure, it's a historic building, but everything about the place was cheap. That's fine if you're out for a Coney, but in an establishment that bills itself as "fine dining" it's a big disappointment. Dishes looked to be from the '70s and... More

We arrive around 7:30 on 12/22 and were promptly seated. All dinners were brought quickly and we each enjoyed our entree. We eat here at least 3-4 times a year. Great service and friendly staff

The food is great. They have one of the best New York strip steaks in the area. Sit on the bar side. Parking is limited on weekends.

I've been here 3 or 4 times over the past ten years. I've never been disappointed by the food. The service could be better. I feel like this place has come down a notch over the years in terms of service and atmosphere but the food has always been excellent.

On a whim I decided to revisit one of my favorite "haunts" from a few years back to celebrate my wife's birthday. I asked to be seated in the "loft" area which has a history of having spiritual encounters. That added some excitement to the evening. Our two sons joined us for the event. One of our favorite meals at... More

Had great service. This restaurant is well known in the area. Looks rather dumpy on the outside. But nice on the inside. Seafood Bisque very good. French onion too. Fish offerings were very good. Loved the chocolate cake with fruit ribbons and whipped cream..a specialty.

The food and service at Fenton Hotel has always been consistently good. When we have out of town guests, we always go there for dinner. The menu has enough variety to please everyone. The main dining room is quiet and conducive to conversation. The mac and cheese is amazing and the seafood bisque is one of my favorites. Our friends... More

Wonderful food and service. Slightly pricey but worth it. The Oriental coleslaw is outstanding ! My prime rib was medium when I ordered it to be rare, though. I would definitely go back.
