Breakfast comes with staying at the Inn and it is always an adventure, starting with a personalized menu. Dinner is now only on Friday and Saturday nights (the chef also operates Over Yonder.) Wonderful location for a special occasion dinner and a real plus if you are staying over on Friday or Saturday night - you can sample the moonshine.

This was our second Thanksgiving Dinner at the Inn and it did not disappoint! Andy, the chef, outdid himself once again. The food was wonderfully prepared and the service was outstanding. Velva, our server, came through once again with superb service! We will definitely come back for another Thanksgiving and other dinners as well.

I worked for the family at the original store when I was in college at ASU and had fond memories of my time there. Having stayed and dined at Mast Farm Inn several times over the years, I had hoped to start a new tradition with my own family this Thanksgiving. We had a 12:00 seating and our food was... More

This is our second time eating at this restaurant in the last few months. They use such fresh ingredients - many from their own garden. Food is excellent; service is good and "down home relaxed". You'll find something good on the wine list but it is a short list and a good amount of their wine and almost all liquor... More

We had a delicious meal with excellent service in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Chef's choice is the way to go. He is always innovative with local and interesting ingredients. Backdrop of the mountains just make it all the more enjoyable.

I have been going to the Mast Farm Inn for years. The setting is gorgeous in Valle Crucis. Everything is fresh. They serve wine and Moonshine liquors. I liked it better when they had pre printed personalized menus and a Price Fixed four course meal only. They still offer the four course meal, but otherwise you order ala carte.

This review is for dinner; the breakfasts are amazing too but more part of being a guest at the Inn. You can come for dinner without being a guest. Wow! My husband and I are foodies and are tough critics. Our meal was simply amazing. It was all unique and different, using incredibly fresh ingredients. By far the best meal... More
