Good enough

Great staff, average food. Fine spot to stop along the way, especially with limited options by local hotels. Owner was friendly and engaging.

Ok food, nice atmosphere. Was seated at a table in an area that doubles as the dance floor. Packed place so took a bit for the food to show up. No big deal on that. Felt like we needed to eat fast to clear the dance floor, as when other diners left, their tables were removed to make dance space.

This looks like a nice place to eat, but looks can be deceiving. We ordered the BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, the BBQ sauce tasted like pureed tomatoes mixed with katsup and the pork tasted old. The fries that came with the meal were terrible, limp and tasteless. Now I know why the parking lot is always empty! $20 for 2... More

The service was horrible the night I was there for dinner, although the food was pretty good. Also, after dinner hour a fight broke out, which totally turned me off from ever returning. The Ausable Inn has potential but they need some work with their service staff and someone to control the local drinkers.

Went for dinner on Sunday night. Half of our party ordered the perch. The batter was way to heavy and the fish had a funny taste to it. I order this all the time. Worst Peary I ever had. We will not be going back

Very slow service and mediocre food. We went after the art fair and expected more from the reviews we read. We were underwhelmed.

New owners! You can't miss. Nice menu, good service, great value. We stopped going here two years ago because it had gone downhill. Big difference now and we'll be back.

I like the atmosphere and the food, both. Each time I have been here, the waitstaff was friendly and on top of it. I'm a little disappointed that they don't grill out any more, but its very good.

We recently went to this restaurant with friends for dinner. After reading the menu which was advertised it seemed like a place to try. It was a special occasion we were gathering for. The food was lousy! The wait was long and 3 meals were sent back. The place was not busy and now I see why. Needless to say... More
