This is a lovely restored Inn where we went for dinner while in East Aurora. We did sit on the peristyle, which was a lovely space but kind of buggy. Wish there was a solution for that problem. Even if we had been seated inside there were large open windows so the bugs still would have been buzzing around. I... More

We sat out on the veranda for a summer evening meal in July. The food was exquisitely prepared. I had never seen corn sprouts on a green salad - what a novel treat! The meal and dessert were both very nice. Breakfast the next morning was also very good.

We love dining on the porch, overlooking a small courtyard garden on one side and greenery on the street side. Elegant table settings, with white linens and napkins. The restaurant has a standing menu and daily specials. The side salads were fresh, with some imaginative and tasty combinations. My husband had the lamb chop special, and declared it the best...

I really loved everything about this restaurant but the quality of the food. I think the prices were too high for what you received and especially for the area. I am a foodie and while it was okay, nothing great...I really want to see this improve as the setting is lovely.

On a beautiful Spring evening during Restaurant Week, we decided to go to The Roycroft Inn. We were very happy to be seated in the atrium on the west side, as it has large windows, wicker furniture, and a very al fresco feeling, much needed after this horrific winter. The young man who served us did so to perfection, there... More

Prior to leaving town after a visit in EA, decided to grab breakfast at the Roycroft. It was one of the best breakfasts I've had. I had a smoked salmon omelette and my girlfriend a breakfast casserole/bread bowl. So delicious. Only problem with EA is so many unbelievably delicious food options but I will definitely try to make it back... More

Our dinner here was the highlight and surprise, yes surprise of our weekend. Having had lunch here last year, I remembered it was not memorable. I read one review though, and one reviewer stated that one must dine there on a Saturday evening. Well it was a Saturday evening. Lucky I had made reservations three weeks before when I booked...

We ate 2 dinners here plus breakfast while staying at the Inn on vacation and had no complaints with food. Outstanding service even when all tables full and meeting going on at dinner.

The Roycroft is absolutely beautiful. We've visited countless times, and it never disappoints. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is so warm and inviting. The service is always top notch; we never have any complaints. The Sunday brunch is excellent and the lunch menu is reasonable. Take the ride out and have a meal while appreciating the beauty and...
