Delicious dinner on the front porch

We joined friends for a lovely evening sitting on the front porch of this elegant inn. The food was very good. Not an extensive menu, but we could all easily find something that we enjoyed. The atmosphere was the real attraction.

What a wonderful experience in a place with rich history. The inn is a wonderful place to visit and the food is good, but very expensive for what you receive. Service is good. Dining is ok, but the surroundings so wonderful!

Staying nearby, we wanted to find a place to eat in Lewisburg. This was a wonderful find! Local food sources, great service, and fantastic attention to the dining experience. From the individual cornbread pones to the main courses to dessert, our party of six enjoyed it all.

Really enjoyed the fun cocktail options at the bar. We did not have food at the dining room. There were many choices on the drink menu. Best of all, we were able to enjoy the drinks on the large porch, looking out on the grounds and road in front of the Inn.

I just got married and we had our wedding reception here. It is perfect for a small wedding. We were able to rent out the whole dining room. The food was fantastic and the staff was incredible!!!

The fireplace-bar room and the dining room are both well furnished with antiques and historically based furniture and features. The new owners have revamped the menu, keeping some favorites and introducing all the local food producers whose items are now featured on the menu. Service was timely without being rushed. Onion soup very good (I thought priced too high), crab... More
