Spend two days for a workshop, nice authentic place.

We didn't use the accommodation services but had a two day workshop here. The atmosphere is nice, old houses with old decorations, original and traditional fireplaces, and we also got to have lunches and dinners here. Food was good and service was very kind and useful. good place for work events.

Great food and service was superb! Creme brulee dessert is highly recommended! Will go back for sure since only about an hr away. We stayed overnight too which was a plus that we could have wine and not worry about driving home after dinner

Very disappointing dinner here. Starter was drowning in salt and garlic. Steak lukewarm. Service just OK. Have a hard time understanding how this is rated #1 in the area. Seemed to have potential to be a charming place but fell short on all fronts.

Family had lunch at this place this week. A family member had been here for dinner a few weeks ago so we decided to try lunch and are glad he suggested this place. Atmosphere, service and food all were at the highest level. Even though there was a full house with many tables celebrating the holidays, all bases were fully... More

The event was perfect and we received a lot of compliments about the venue and food. Wendi made the planning fun and easy. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. I have no complaints. We could not have made a better choice. I'm already planning my next event there.

We have been going to the JOA for years and have never been disappointed - whether it is a holiday brunch, a huge affair, a lunch with the girls or just for a quiet dinner. There is a wonderful charm about this Inn. I have given many gift cards to the JOA to be used for a special dinner or... More

I enjoyed an outing with friends at the Joseph Ambler Inn last month. The table was adorned beautifully for the holiday season and ready when we arrived. The servers were excellent and efficient. The food was delicious and plentiful. We had a lovely lunch together and the environment helped to make it such a plus!

We went to the Joseph Ambler Inn for Thanksgiving dinner in 2014 and experienced a wonderful diverse buffet. We made reservations this year hoping for the same experience. When making the reservations, we noticed the buffet was no longer available and it was a menu of an appetizer, entree and dessert. Because of the wonderful experience in 2014 we decided... More

My husband and I have always enjoyed Joseph Ambler Inn. The atmosphere is old world and charming. The wait staff is very good and the food is reliably good. We always know we will have a good meal and a lovely evening when we go there.
