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...

Chef Anne is amazing and the intimate nature of the dining room combined with the absolutely delicious food make for a memorable experience.

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...

You will love every morsel. Ann is a culinary expert. Her dishes may be described as eclectic, beyond ordinary - your mouth can't wait for the next bite!

The way that they try to accommodate every little thing you need. My daughter must eat gluten free and they made her dinner special for her. You don't find that many places.

This lovely inn has a very good cook who trained in Hawaii and in Paris (interesting combination). We had typical Virginia food, oysters and crab cakes with spoonbread, but each thing was special and showed the chef's training. The crab cakes, in particular, were outstanding - no crumbs to speak of, and not noticeably fried. And the spoonbread - haven't... More
