Birthday dinner for my wife

We stayed at the Board Head Inn and had made dinner reservations at the Old Mill Room. Given that this restaurant has very high reviews, I would say our overall dinning experience was far superior compared to most restaurants.

It was a very busy Friday night and I am not sure if that is normal or not because I have never been here before. We were a party of four and seated very quickly. The venue is quite nice. The server had just about no ability to remember things which was evident a few times by the expression on... More

It all started with a lovely table in front of the beautiful fireplace-Our server was so gracious and so good about explaining all the choices- We lingered over the best martini I have had in a long time-the waiter made sure he did not rush us to order, which we so appreciated. Our scallops appetizer was to die for! We... More

This ranks up in the top few birthday dinners I have had, if not the best! We were seated at a cozy table that was a booth of one side with a wing back chair on the other. The chef sent out a wonderful little bite of tuna and seaweed salad before the meal. Everything we ordered was amazing -... More

The Old Mill Room at the Boar's Head Inn is a favorite of ours. We go every chance we get. The decor is traditional, with high quality furnishings and white tablecloths. We love the warm, cozy feeling with a fireplace in the center of the dining room. It is a true fine dining experience. They offer a very nice buffet... More

Had dinner with a large party and service was inconsistent. Food was good quality and presentation was nice. Never was served any water, nor asked for drink order. Seemed a little over-priced for the value.

The decor for Christmas was lovely. We ate at the early seating which provided a four course prefix meal with selection for each course. The food was delicious, just a little much for me with four courses. The waitress was attentive, but not obtrusive.

The service at the Boar's Head is impeccable. The food, while not crazy off the charts amazing, is quite well prepared and presented. Excellent wine selection. Quiet, cozy, classy atmosphere.
