Historic, well located spot. Nice people. Beautiful backyard garden. Gargantuan, but very tasty breakfast (allow time for slow delivery). Only complaint: the bed in 122 was rock-like.

The fried chicken is the best!! I understand the desire to remain authentic historically, but there is a difference between felling historical, and feeling tired. The property has bee purchased by the group that owns Stardust Cafe, and we were told that they plan to overhaul the entire place. We actually bumped into one of the new owners, and she... More

Perhaps it's because the General Lewis is in transition with a new owner, but our experience with the dining room was disappointing. My trout was supposed to be fresh but tasted, not only like it had been frozen, but microwaved as well. Another person at our table had the prime rib which he said was tough. The music was loud...

We had breakfast at the General Lewis Inn. Nice service, good food, reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend if you're staying at the General Lewis Inn. There are plenty of options for all types (vegetarian, etc.)

My family held a birthday luncheon at the General Lewis Inn. The food was very good, the staff was so accommodating, and the service was exceptional. The General Lewis Inn is a lovely setting and is very close to the downtown shopping and dining area. We will return whenever we are in the area.

My wife and I enjoyed dinner here before a concert last night. The atmosphere is very relaxing, the food was excellent and the service was outstanding! Will definitely plan a return visit!

The restaurant is not as good as we experienced two years ago. Service was extremely slow. The food was served lukewarm and was pretty tasteless. The broiled rainbow trout tasted as if it had been reheated and was very dry. The waitress had at least 5 tables and could not handle the load. We had to wait 20 minutes to... More

Charming southern breakfast with every attention to detail. The fruit entrée was amazing. The eggs, bacon, biscuits all delish. The best were the breakfast potatoes.... yum!

Very charming restaurant and atmosphere. Great service. Food was good. My husband had the prime rib and liked it. I had the shrimp scampi which is not something I would typically order and it was good. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because I wish they had a bit more variety on the menu. Very...

We enjoyed our meal. Food was good and service was great. Husband had fried chicken and it was excellent. I had a filet and while it was good, it wasn't spectacular. My husband enjoyed the cheeseburger soup; salad was pretty basic. We had cherry cobbler for dessert, and it was just okay. Overall nice dining experience.
