What a surprise to find Willowtree Inn's dining area, facing a gently flowing creek that is viewed just beyond the elder willow. The outdoor seating area beckons, though threatening rain keeps us inside in the spacious dining room. The menu is rather traditional, a bit on the heavy side, with lots of sauces and dishes that have been abandoned in more contemporary dining spots: imperial, scampi, Diane, crab-stuffed, etc. So it was a challenge to find something with less over-bearing flavors. Our party ordered chicken francaise - good but not spectacular; flounder stuffed with crabmeat - standard; torrnedos of beef - tender and prepared well. Some of the food was only warm, the sauce had begun to gel. String beans as the side were a little tough, the smashed potatoes not special. Service was adequate. Setting alone can't carry a restuarant, but I would return here for the views, probably for drinks and ?
