Great Historic Place to Stay or Eat

Recently visited the Roycroft restaurant for Valentine's dinner. Great atmosphere, good service, good food, okay beer wine menu. I would recommend this to friends and family.

Wow. Where do I begin? First off, my husband and I are huge fans of the Arts and Crafts movement. So just walking into the inn was breathtaking. It is a treasure just to wait for your table in the historic and beautiful great room. The service was excellent and we were shown to our tables, which were done up... More

Had a business lunch here yesterday, beautiful old building, big enough to get lost in! The lobster bisque was outstanding and my steak burger was fantastic. Water glasses were constantly being filled up and service was excellent.

My boyfriend's parents made reservations for the family at the Roycroft for a beautiful Christmas brunch. I had never been there before, but I expected a great experience from all the reviews I had seen. The Roycroft certainly did not disappoint. The Christmas decorations were beautiful, the dining atmosphere was cozy, and the servers were very attentive. Each brunch meal... More

I actually wrote this review under the Roycroft Campus. I have a friend that stayed at the Inn a couple of years ago and she found it to be most charming. We are thinking of going there for a girl's weekend later this winter and I intend to have their marvelous creme brulee morning, noon and night while there.

It is a special occasion (and then again - doesn't have to be!) when I think of where to go to dinner in East Aurora with good friends and family. Especially those from out of town - it is nice to go to a restaurant that isn't playing some trivia game or some silly hard rock music. This restaurant packs... More

After cutting down the family Christmas Tree on a cold winter day, we had dinner at the Roycroft Inn by a warm fire. We could not have asked for better atmosphere or dinner. This is a very special place!

This is that kind of place you want to call home. The ambiance is unbelievable; huge oak doors, large windows, great architecture....you just want to sit in the lounge and drink specialty drinks or beer and soak up the fire and/or the music. We've gone there many times for breakfast too. I hate to even tell this secret but the... More

Stunning building, excellent food, attentive and friendly service. It was a rare pleasure to eat a delicious meal in the historic birthplace of an Utopian community whose artisanal, anti-industrial ethos may not have prevailed (so much the worse for us) but whose aesthetic inspired Frank Lloyd Wright and generations of designers and architects. Thoroughly satisfying.

I have to say after attending a much anticipated brunch at a popular hotel in Manhattan a few weeks before and then attending brunch here a week a later at the Roycroft, there was absolutely no comparison...The Roycroft blew that place out of the water ten times over and it was less than half the price. There were about 12... More
