The entire meal was outstanding. Top notch ingredients, inventive items. The setting is very pretty with twinkling lights and just the perfect place to relax with a bottle of wine and excellent food. The oysters, salad, and crab cakes are amazingly good.

The meal we had at The Dining Hall was one of the best I've had; all the food was locally sourced I believe and amazingly fresh. Meseret, the general manager, at the Hope and Glory delivered top notch service while being wonderfully personable and a pleasure to chat with. The chef came out to introduce herself as well during the... More

My wife and I were staying at The Tides Inn (great place) and walked to dinner one evening at The Hope and Glory. It was truly an experience we will never forget. We were warmly met by Dudley who offered us a cocktail before dinner...and dinner was over the top. The meal began with the best oysters I have ever... More

This was my first experience eating at the Hope and Glory and it was truly a nice all-round experience. The food was very good (but make sure you call ahead to find out what they have -- there is one set menu ). That was ok, since my party of four like seafood, but we would have been in trouble...

In the small dining room of a historic inn. Serves up to about 15 people per evening. They don't turn over the tables; you have your table for the evening (approx. $65 each plus wine). Set menu; little choice, so ask ahead about the menu. Gracious hostess/owners and excellent chef.

The Hope and Glory Inn was a perfect setting for the dinner party we held to mark our daughter's engagement. We hope that she and her fiance will decide to have their wedding there when they marry two years from now. A wonderful old building, cleverly repurposed (it was originally a schoolhouse), the inn has a common area with comfy... More

Would have liked a menu instead of a pre-planned meal. We had four courses. The baked oysters as an appetizer were outstanding. The main meal came out with crab cake, spoon bread and a vegetable medley like a ratatouille. Very good overall but we don't usually order 4 courses so you eat it because it is $68 a person. Not...
