“Go with time to relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

I managed to get reservations same night with the help of a hotel concierge. Arrived early, and I recommend this! Because we arrived before service started, our terrific server took our children aside and said she was going to show them something special. "Come with me!" She took them into a back room and opened a trap door in the floor which functioned as part of the underground railroad! She told them how the escaping slaves had hidden themselves there. It was really a marvelous dinner start to finish, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Don't go if you are in a hurry. This is a relax and enjoy it place, and service is not quick. Think of it as an event and just relax. Food was really good, and we were seated in a lovely little room located kind of behind the reception counter. The staff was positively lovely and printed out some facts for the children. Really memorable and fun. I must stress that you should not go expecting to get in and out quickly. It's not that kind of place.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review concerning your dinner here at The Inn. You are exactly right about dinner being an "experience". We hope our guests enjoy not only the delicious food, but also the ambiance of dining in an Inn that was part of American history. Thank you also, for complimenting our staff.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This was the perfect place to eat when staying at the Inn. Similar to the rest of the Inn, it was incredibly classy and delicious. I was a huge fan.

“Gettysburg gastronomy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

We had a large company at the restaurant and to a man and woman we loved the place. One of our party had the Chincoteague oysters and remarked "it smells like Christmas" as she passed the dish around the table and I will be damned! It really did smell like Christmas! And this is important to note, the smell of the food was interest do the olfactory and the food was plated splendidly. But more importantly the taste was heavenly. I fund our one of the chefs - a local guy was trained at the CIA. He represented his school well.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review concerning your dining experience here at The Inn. We all were intrigued by your description of the oysters. The Chincoteague salts oysters are delicious, with the ginger lychee sorbet and local hot house cucumber fraiche, but we didn't realize that they smelled like "Christmas"! Please come back and dine with us again soon. Who knows what other "holiday" we will be offering.

We had a great mother's day meal here for the family! Service and food was fantastic! We took all the "Mothers" there and had a party of 15 in all. It is close to Gettysburg Campground where we stayed at that weekend. In all a totaly nice Mother;s Day weekend!

“Beautiful Atmosphere But...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We arrived for lunch around 1 PM on a Friday and were the only ones in the room (a few were at the solarium). Service at first was fine but deteriorated. Young lady at entrance looked bored and was not helpful. Rest room had no soap and no towels and I reported it only to return 10 minutes later in same condition. Food was good but not excellent.
