We ate here on a Saturday night and I have to say I was extremely disappointed and will not go back! 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. I order a basic gin martini with olives and the drink... More

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

Our meal was one of the best we've ever had and everyone in our group of 13 felt the same. The service was impeccable - Meseret was such a gracious host. It was a very special dining experience

We can share nothing that we disliked--everything was beautifully presented and the food was fresh and delicious. In addition, the service was second to none.

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...
