End-of-Summer Getaway

Ate one evening meal while staying at the Inn. Food was outstanding. Only negative might be that the dining room is a bit noisy when a larger group is talking.

It was a holiday weekend and we had not made a dinner reservation but a local advised us to try here since it was "out of town." It isn't downtown but within walking distance. The woman who greeted us, seated us & tended bar was very nice. The waitress Courtney seemed a bit nervous and inexperienced but she will be... More

We stayed two nights at The Inn & Garden and breakfast was included. It was a full breakfast with fresh fruit and home baked sweets and then a full course on top of that. The egg dishes were fabulous, the French Toast was exceptional. We weren't hungry until dinner after this extravagat fare.

After checking, we had our evening meal on site. Everything was fresh and delicious! The pork chops and purple potatoes were very tasty and the pasta dinner was great.

We made reservations for an after wedding dinner, hoping for a quite upscale experience. Having lived in the NY area for years, where mediocre establishments last but a nano-second, lack of good restaurants here was the downside to relocating. I must say that "The Inn & Garden Café" was a delightful exception. The duck and the lobster dishes were superb!

We stayed 2 nights here in a beautiful room with all the little extra touches. Breakfast has a menu which is unlike any other B&B, with everything made from scratch. Served on tables with real linen, fresh flowers and china. It is leisurely, taking almost an hour from start to finish. The restaurant serves dinner with reservations recommended as the... More

We eat here for events and planned meals. Have never had a bad meal. New Year's Eve celebration was a blast.

As long as Chef Neil Annis is in charge, do yourself a favor and visit The Inn and Garden Cafe when visiting Onancock, VA on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. With only one exception, (The Eastville Inn Restaurant in Eastville) not one other restaurant has gone so far out of their way to please a vegan customer such as myself... More

Our group of five enjoyed the excellent food and patient service (some people were late). We sampled house-made apple cider with Fireball liqueur along with portabella mushrooms on pastry both provided courtesy of the chef. The Orange Crush cocktail was a hit, as were the three tapas/appetizers we tried. The apple slaw over pulled pork was the favorite. Four of... More

The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the food was great in terms of presentation, inventiveness and, most of all, taste. Highly recommend and can't wait to go back!
