Worst experience, apparently they prefer reservations, we had no idea, just went about 530 for dinner..after 15 minutes of being stared at and whispered about we were grudgingly seated. Thank goodness my senses kicking in after we sat down, WHY would I want to spending my money here, so we left!..have no idea about food quality but for snobbery and... More

Last night was our first time for dinner and we were extremely impressed and completely satisfied. You choose your 4 courses from a monthly menu the morning prior to your reservation. We were greeted upon arrival, once seated, the 6:00pm dinner service began. You will have an hour and a half experience of well prepared food, a view of the... More

From the moment you walk in the door, until you walk out the door to leave you are taken care of. The staff is unbelievably kind and attentive. The grounds are so nice you feel no reason to even go anywhere. But you should, the little town of Glen Rose is a nice getaway to do just what the sign... More

We go here often and it is a quiet place with excellent food. It is a perfect retreat. Sit on the bank of the river and watch nature.

I have stayed here several times and had the same inviting warm welcome I had before. This time was a last minute booking with dinner reservations. We stayed in Room #1 and it was comfortable overlooking backyard area. Dinner was superb with great choices and service was great. They even made a fruit plate for my husband in place of... More

You can bring you own wine and no corking fee is charged...It is not required that you stay at the Inn to have dinner, but... More

We ate here for our anniversary. I cannot say enough about the food and service. It was by far, the best meal I have had in a long time. It was the perfect place to celebrate. Hats off to the chef!!!

If you want a special place to go with superb food, impeccable service, and unmatched scenery, this is your place. We have been there many times, and we have yet to have a bad meal, or even a part of a bad meal. In fact, since it is expensive for us, we only go on special occasions. We do not... More
