We had a private birthday party at The General Elliott Inn. Kay and Steve, the owners, along with their wait staff were outstanding. We had a group of all ages for a birthday celebration. Their attitude of service, the meal and atmosphere were all above and beyond expectations. This is an exceptional restaurant! We are never disappointed.

This will not attract your attention at first glance because this is a very special place. The food is awesome. When making a reservation you must also select your meal choice. That's a unique concept but insures freshness of everything on your plate. Don't miss this one!

A pretty place, inside and out. But the service and meal did not live up to the rep. Service started out promptly, then fell off as the meal went on, until by the end, practically nonexistent, except to pass out the checks. Our party had several different meals, though a few people ordered the same items. The vegetables were good.... More

Just can't please some people. This was a table of eight and we provided a server for specifically and solely for the table. The seafood the reviewer mentioned were crab cakes. She said they tasted fishy and we checked with the three other guests in the Inn that night who had crab cakes and they said they were wonderful. They... More

Kaye (the Chef) and Steve, the owners, and Pete (server and attendant to our table) provided a memorable early evening setting for our group of seven; Steve at the bar, Kay preparing meals, Pete presenting courses. It seems we had their undivided attention, and this feeling was so appreciated by our family and friends group. We had a lot of... More

My family and I were treated like THE Royal Family. I have no doubt that each guest receives this type of treatment. Steve is a wonderful host. His wife and co-owner Kay is a superb chef. Our waiter, Peter, is one of the finest servers I have experienced. My family ranged from ages 16 to 85. Our food selections went... More

This is where my adult children always choose to go for special occasions. It does require planning ahead, but it is definitely worth the effort. Steve and Kay are wonderful hosts, the food is superb, and the atmosphere is very relaxed!
