Really great service

Our server, Keegan, was knowledgeable and helpful without being intrusive. We dined at the Inn for breakfast after staying the night before. Our meals were quick and good, but nothing overly remarkable.

The restaurant at the Little Inn in Bayfield has just been completely renovated. And it has only been open in its new incarnation for a few days. (It has a new name too -- The Willow Room) We stayed for three days and ate several meals -- 3 breakfasts, 2 dinners and a brunch in the restaurant. The new staff... More

we attended with a large group from work. An entire room was dedicated to us, with excellent service, good house wine and a well decorated table. We did not look at the wine list and proceeded to taste our choices of arctic char (on a mille feuille crust) , an excellent (but a bit small sized) pickerel, and a tasty... More

I had the wonderful pleasure of eating at the Little Inn in Bayfield. Inn keeping since 1832 this place has not missed anything in it's atmosphere or delivering of services. It was like walking back in time upon entering the front doors and the dining room was amazing. The food was well presented with healthy choices, from local producers. The... More

We sat at the bar and each enjoyed a wonderful glass of wine which we believed was served by the owner/manager. He engaged us in just the right amount of conversation and ensured that we were comfortable and offered seating in soft chairs in front of the fireplace as well. Upon leaving we advised how much we had enjoyed the... More

Excellent Victorian settings combined with well prepared and well presented healthy choice, based on local producers. Good for a date or a small company

Moments walk to the beach, quite and beautiful little town. We stayed in the cottage area of the Inn and had a private balcony and entrance which we loved. Very rustic but clean.

A former Bayfield Chef recommend the Little Inn for dinner so I made a reservation. I was pleased with all from start to finish. Our kind and helpful waitress brought us to our seat in a beautiful dining room with a view outside. A lovely atmosphere! We were brought an amuse-bouche to start- a delicious dumpling- along with fresh baguette.... More

Unremarkable. Very long wait. The grain portion of the meal was so crusty it could have broken a tooth.

We've been before and decided to spend a night away to get through this dreary winter. They often have special wine and dine dinners on a Saturday and this one had an Olympic theme. Each course represented food and drink from top medal winning countries. What fun ! Chef and the sommelier must have had a good time putting this... More
