Perfect Anniversary Dinner

My husband and I have been coming here for years and we absolutely love it here. Hope and Glory has a charm to it that is unparalleled. For our Anniversary we brought our sons, who are 14 and 11. I would not recommend this restaurant to families with young kids. As always the service was impeccable... read more

This is a prix fixe, set-menu establishment. It's an old schoolhouse turned into an inn. My (kinda picky) kids were skeptical about that, but the food was amazing. Roasted oysters, summer salad with mint-infused watermelon, crab cakes with spoonbread and lots of local veg, lemon mousse. All sounds simple but was executed so well, really special food (and I don't... More

Get ready for a set Prix Fixe 4 course dinner that you have little control over. (Web site states: allergy and dietary needs can be addressed with advanced notice) I say this in an OK way in that the food is very good, it is just that you don't order off the menu; you get what the chef has come...

We enjoyed a delicious dinner of local seafood deliciously prepared and served. Expensive but worth it! The oyster appetizer was beyond description and the crab cakes were all crab! It was wonderful!

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with a four course fixe prix menu. We began with savory roasted oysters with a light topping of pesto and gorgonzola. Next was a salad course. The main event was sweet local lump crab cakes with no detectable filling and the lightest bread pudding I've ever tasted, with local asparagus. Dessert was a... More

The meal started off with some awesome baked oysters, followed by a nice salad, a beautifully prepared rockfish filet and ended with a nice creme brulee. Excellent meal.

We stayed the weekend in Irvington VA at the Hope and Glory (reviewed separately) and had dinner in The "Dining Hall" on Sunday night. My wife and I had the pleasure of having the restaurant to ourselves, as we were the only occupants of the B&B on Sunday night. Our menu was prearranged with us to ensure we enjoyed each... More

The place is in a nice Victorian house, we first sat in the small bar for a drink its decorated like an old school house room kinda interesting.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Inn very recently and we had a dinner and a breakfast at the Dining Hall. The space is small though it was very well decorated and the ambiance was quiet and romantic. The chef served us a four course dinner which started with baked oysters on the half shell, and I thought it... More
