We recently ate dinner in this quaint little bed & breakfast, and it wasn't for the first time! The meal begins with homemade "mouth melting" biscuits and homemade apple butter. I had the crab cakes, smashed potatoes, and roasted broccoli, and I cleaned my plate!! Crab cakes were plump and so full of flavor! My husband had the special that... More

We love everything about the Red Rocker, beginning with waiting for our friends sitting on the red rockers to the exquisite desserts. Salad de jour is just the right size with dinner and always interesting. Crab cakes are the best you will find and the horseradish remoulade is terrific. Hummingbird cake is worth saving room for and all desserts are... More

Dined at the Red Rocker Inn Restaurant during a recent stay at the inn and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious and the service was excellent!! They serve complimentary homemade buttermilk biscuits with homemade apple butter and trust me, they are G-O-O-D!!!! While we didn't try any of the desserts (we were stuffed!), they looked absolutely divine as... More

We were told the desserts were great - and they are! I ate a salad for dinner saving room for dessert. They serve great bisquits before dinner (which I could never pass up) and my husband had a steak for dinner which he liked. For dessert, he had the Reese's PNut Butter Ice Cream pie which everyone loved. I had... More

We used to go to the Red Rocker B & B when our girls were Little and we took them to Camp Greystone. It must be 25 years ago when we first came when there was a big tire swing in the front yard and the dining porch was not enclosed. I remember they prayed before the evening meal. Now... More

Our delightful stay at the RED ROCKER INN was matched only by the fantastic food that we partook of for dinner and then at the breakfast buffet. We made our dinner reservations (you would want to do this as well) at the same time as our room accommodations. There are many fine choices from the dinner menu. The evening we... More

Fabulous setting for a great dinner at moderate prices. Wife and I had rainbow trout - never better. My former college roommate and his wife also very pleased. Good waiter, much fun, great place to slow down and get caught up on life. Try it, you will be so glad you did. Dessert is to die for! Come early and... More

Everything about this experience was delightful. This has to be one of the few inns of this caliber left. The food was excellent and the wait staff expertly trained. Don't miss an opportunity to enjoy this great place. Reservations are suggested so you won't be disappointed.

We had stayed the night at the Inn so breakfast was included with the stay. They have the best breakfast ever. An egg dish, a breakfast bread dish, bacon, sausage, gravy, biscuits, fresh fruit plus your beverage. If you don't like the egg dish they will fix you an egg(s) any way that you like. This was our second stay... More

I had the lentil walnut cake for the entree--a delicious kind of veggie burger but better. And the biscuits and apple butter were amazing. Also great coffee!
