Great place to take visitors from the city

We recently took two friends who were visiting from China to the Walpack Inn for dinner. The deer came up to the window a bit after we arrived (just before dusk), and the cameras came out. Our guests were truly delighted. The staff was most cordial and accommodating. I liked the rustic decor... read more

Just when you think your close to restaurant, keep driving! It is a quaint place to drive up to. It must be the drive in the country that has us return every year. The restaurant is quite large inside. The food is ok. Many of us stated on our recent visit, not much flavor with the beef dishes, prime rib... More

First, go to this restaurant. You need to experienced the drive through the forest to dine here. See the Does, Bucks and Fawns that come out of the forest to feed outside a hugh glass wall while you dine. The food is good American fare(steaks, fish etc. Drinks and service is more than adequate. Dessert is fine. Everyone should experience... More

There's a lot of mixed reviews for this place. I personally love venturing here. Then again, we have also stayed in the guest house on the property and as a result don't always have to make the long drive home. Yes, the food is food. I love the bread. Walking to the salad bar is always an experience as you... More

I wanted to give the Walpack Inn a 3.5 but that's not allowed, and just couldn't bring myself to rate it Very Good (4). We were there Saturday night and the place was packed, so the restaurant certainly won't care how I rate it. I read many of the existing reviews, and was surprised by the variability. Some people disliked... More

I genuinely do not understand the negative reviews of this restaurant. We have been going here for years and it has always been wonderful. It's an old very beautiful place but it's not dusty with cobwebs by any stretch of the imagination in my opinion. This place has been here forever. It's in the middle of nowhere, and if you... More

Great steaks and a large array of good food. We enjoyed the crusty, delicious bread. The restaurant is rustic and warm.The atmosphere is conductive to relaxing with friends. We watched bears walk around behind the building. It was just charming.

My husband and I called in on the Walpack Inn yesterday after trying to find it three times...the sign is very overgrown with vegetation. We were starving as it was 3:30 and we'd skipped lunch. When I finally found the hostess (she sits at a table in the dining room instead of being located by the door?!) she advised me... More

Came here on a recommendation and was worth it! Scenic drive in fall. Waiting area is very rustic and homey, piano player, nice bar. Window seating is a must if you desire to see the deer feed. We saw a deer fight too. It was nice watching them as the sun set. The back room is full if antler chandeliers... More
