My husband and I ate dinner and two breakfasts here while staying at the Inn. When we entered for dinner, the restaurant was nearly empty, but we were asked if we had a reservation (we did not). Several parties came in while we were eating, but the tables were never all full. Dinner was very good (I had the crab cake), but I thought the vegetable portions were very small (~3 small asparagus spears, and 3 tiny red potatoes cut in half). I WILL say the grilled asparagus were out of this world! Sure wish the serving had been more generous. My husband's iced tea looked like water with a drop of yellow food coloring. It was the weakest tea we had ever seen! We asked the waiter to bring stronger tea, which he did, but it wasn't much better. He gave some excuse about using family-sized tea bags for brewing and that's why it was so weak. Nice try, but we all know that leaving the tea bag in longer will make a better glass of tea, so the iced tea was a big disappointment, and not worth the money. Breakfasts were very good...excellent coffee (much stronger than the iced tea), delicious fresh fruit, French toast, and omelettes. A request about whether the restaurant had Egg Beaters (which they did not), was accommodated with the offer of making an egg-white omelette, which was quite good. Service was good on all occasions. Those staying at the Inn are given an allotment of $18 per person for breakfast, which can be used toward items off of the breakfast menu. Our breakfasts were quite hearty, and both days we stayed under the allotment. Definitely worth a visit, both for the good food and the ambiance of an old tavern.
