We started off our visit to Mount Vernon with lunch at the Mount Vernon Inn. The restaurant is period in style, and all the wait staff wore clothing of the times. It was not crowded when we went and were seated quickly. Order the corn bread -- it was crusty and tasty and was a nice side with the meal.

Our federal office (US Army Center of Miltary History) had a fabulous time at Mount Vernon. As an organization that preserves Army History and Army Artifacts, we had special tours of before the luncheon at their museum support center and library, BUT, the food was great too!. There's a huge.. and I'm saying huge center attached to this restaurant, that... More

Took about an hour before we were finally seated. They had run out of some items on the menu. Cheeseburgers, sandwiches and salads are on the menu.

We arrived in Alexandria and had dinner here before our tour of Mount Vernon. It was a classic colonial style room with a nice fire going in the fireplace. Our server was dressed in colonial garb and very attentive. The meal was excellent.

All four of us enjoyed our meals and really enjoyed dessert. My pecan pie was wonderful. Service was a little slow but since we were done with our visit we did not mind. Prices were reasonable. Definitely beat eating at the food court.

We toured Mt Vernon and had lunch at the Inn. We decided to try all of the Inn specialties even though we were skeptical about some. The peanut soup was quite rich and tasted like warm peanut butter so a bite or two was all we could do. The fried green tomatoes were awesome, but the bread pudding was absolutely... More

The restaurant was colonial style in appearance. Fireplaces were there, but not used due to moderate temps. The Mount Vernon wine was delicious. I had the peanut soup with pork chop in glaze over grits, all excellent. Others in my party had the tri-taste soup, this seemed the way to go. 3 soups offered as tasters. The lamb dish was... More

We stopped for lunch after visiting Mt. Vernon. The food selections were good but the vegetarian options are very limited. My friends had the shrimp and grits and said they were outstanding, but the grits are made with chicken stock. The cornbread is a wonderful addition to the meal.

Our party of 5 was neglected. We waited over an hour to be seated and when we finally asked how much longer, we discovered our name had been crossed off the list. No one ever apologized or even cared about their oversight. It appeared as though there were many employees hustling around but accomplishing very little. Our server was efficient,... More

We have no idea why this place got such good review. The famous peanut soup is like melted peanut butter which is disgusting. The service is also below average. Our waitress disappeared most if the time and took forever for us to get our bill. The ambience is also very kitschy.
