Good Sunday dinners

We came with another couple for dinner on a Sunday evening; it was not crowded. Our waiter was friendly but we had to ask for wine list twice and he was not sure about some of the questions we asked - Again, though he was friendly and pleasant all evening. I ordered the stuffed tilapia, my... read more

Hadn't eaten here in years and decided to try it for dinner on a weeknight. The menu is very interesting and it took a long time to make a decision on food. Rather than just having the usual steaks, chicken, fish--the foods are offered with interesting sauces. I had chicken with a Dijon mustard cream sauce which was excellent. There... More

Trip A. I had the same experience with my family and the owner disrespecting her employees and making fun of Martin, our server, for being Gay. We reserved months in advance. When we arrived our table was not ready and the manager said, we had to wait, because there were squatters at our table (referring to the costumers waiting to... More

We went on a Sunday for brunch, The food was delicious, hot food was hot and cold food was cold. The service was amazing and delightful. The prime rib melted in your mouth! This Bed and Breakfast has a wonderful bar, dinning room and is just full of wonderful believe it or not(s)! Maybe you will visit when the Ghost... More

Went there again recently after about 40 years(when we had our rehearsal dinner). Very good. Great potato leek soup. Nice staff. Supposed to be haunted but we did not see any ghosts during our meal. HA!

We had an extremely disappointing dining experience today. Last year I won 2 gift certificates from a fundraiser. Each was good for $12 off the Sunday brunch for two at Rider's Inn in Painesville. It's a very old, historical Inn. Been around for a long time. The place was very antiquey and had some charm. We were given a table... More

Went to Riders expecting a very nice Thanksgiving dinner with a family of 12, including 4 children. I'm not sure where to begin. When we went to the hostess desk, our reservation couldn't be found ; it took several minutes. The lady at the desk just kept saying the owner could find it easier and she finally found the owner...

Salads were wilted, steak was dry and burnt... Prime rib was good. Atmosphere welcoming but a bit dirty. Wouldn't go back.

We stayed at the inn and had a dinner - which was way better than we expected. I liked the bar area a lot. It has a cozy and welcoming air, old fashion in a good way. We had burger and prime rib. Burger was the best one we had in a long time. Perfectly cooked as we requested, nice... More

Lovely food, high class establishment located in a historical Tavern. I've eaten here twice and have never had a problem. The drinks have a unique flavor, because the pipes in the tavern are made from wood. The wood pipes are safe to drink from, and add a unique sweetness to the drinks which I really like.
