Went for dinner on Monday night, was a little worried as it was very quiet. It worked to our advantage. Service was excellent and relaxed, was never rushed. It made a nice change as most places just want you in and out to turn over the tables. Food was very good and we ate a lot . Prices was reasonable.... More

We were a fairly large (30+ people) group going for our year-end party. The setting, as many other reviewers remarked, is what you should go for, not the food. Dating from 1750, it is the oldest restaurant (as opposed to tavern) in Mercer County, and the 3rd largest in the country, with a great collection of artifacts from the period.... More

Excellent food and service in historic landmark inn. Charming colonial decor. Wide selection of entrees & appetizers. Fish was excellently prepared. Dinner prices are very reasonable (mid $20's) with generous portions.

This restaurant has changed quite a bit over the past 40 years. The owner is a nice guy and friendly. He keeps his yellow Vette parked right out front. Their wait staff is professional dressing in formal attire. I would say the food went from being exquisite to adequate, but still good. I think they really only need a high... More

We were there for a nice meal to celebrate a birthday, (no candles). The T-Bone was delicious and as ordered. The Swordfish special tasted great, including a seaweed medley as a garnish. (it was good) Add some wine and it was a nice time. We went on a Wednesday and had a good meal, but were surprised it wasn't very... More

But do not go for the food. It is rather sad. Now that's out of the way, this is a not-to-be-missed experience if you like history and atmosphere. The inn has been in constant use as an inn since before the American Revolution, and oozes with history, but in a well-worn favorite shirt kind of way and not a Disneyland... More

We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon for lunch in May 2014. The Inn is very old fashioned but nice. We arrived around 12:30 and were seated immediately. The service was good & we felt very relaxed & welcomed. My wife & I both enjoyed a turkey club sandwich. Later that week I realized I was charged $297.00 more for... More

Reasonable atmosphere, mostly uninspiring food. Decent selection of drinks with a real bar. Menu selection so so.

Attended a bridal shower. Showers are not known as fave places for foodies. I was pleasantly surprised. Table service was excellent, and the food was top notch, loads of variety, and well done. I will go back for dinner. An old inn with tons of charm in a quaint little town, easily accessible off of Rt. 130.

Very good food and servers were very attentive. I will be back. I found the food well prepared, I had the turkey and the owner was a pleasure and brought out dessert which was a bing cherry pie. Very good all around American fare.
