The food was fresh and flavorful. Three of us went for lunch. I had the macro dish- the kale, sauerkraut and beans were my favorite. The mushroom soup was quite good. The other diners had greek salad and a wrap sandwich with veggies. The best part was the homemade peach crisp for dessert. I seldom eat dessert, but this was... More

I love their salads. I always order the Budapest Mushroom Soup - its the best!! They have specials that I often try- especially the appetizers. No wine or beer.

Great food, good size portions for the above average cost. Good selection for both vegetarians and vegans. Got there 1 hour before closing on a Thursday night and they were still busy and still got great service. I am looking forward to going back again

Even though not a vegetarian myself, food was delicious and staff not at all annoyed by the multitude of questions us omnivores ask about what exactly was in our dishes. Wonderful change of pace.

There are so many choices. You can eat healthy ingredients in all items on menu. Gluten Free choices as well as macro-biotic choice. By far the tastiest healthy desserts served impeccably and quick. I go here for healthy comfort food and when I need to get filled up on greens the salads are huge! My favorite restaurant to bring family... More

Be sure to get here early (they start serving dinner at 5pm). The place fills up extremely fast. Although the staff is excellent, Inn Season does not have much seating. The food is amazing, and it is worth any effort to get here. There are many great choices on the menu, but enchiladas are the best. Whether you are a... More

I like the food here a lot, but there is usually a wait to be seated. No where really to hang out inside so in the winter time this creates a bit of a problem. In the summer you an wait outside at the picnic table or just next to the building. My favorite is the stir fry.
