I will preface this review by saying that I was raised in a rather upper crust household, vacationing in places like the 5-star Cloister in Sea Island, the Palm Beach Breakers, and Badrutt's Palace in St. Moritz. IOW, I know how to dress and comport myself in nice places. But I'm not a snob. Nor am I wealthy. I appreciate... More

Both our meals were the best we have ever had. Entrees were duck and salmon. Very properly prepared and served with excellent sides. Quantities were modest, but totally adequate... And left room for dessert. Nice wine list, too.

Located in an Historical Register Inn elegant, fine dining. Imagine traveling to Florida as the trains forged their way to the Florida Keys. Facility in keeping with the generation of travelers from Grove Park Inn, Greenbriar and others of that era.

The total dinning experience was beyond all our expectations. Outstanding is an understatement. We began dinner with a wine bottle of Stags Leap Chardonnay. We enjoyed the most interesting and delicious Caesar salad in the world and a wonderfully tender black grouper. The cream brûlée was the best one anywhere. Our only regret was that we tried other restaurants in... More

We visited with a business group, over Memorial Day weekend, which is after their busy season. Dinner is more laid back (more casual) than during their peak season, but still just so beautiful, great food. Best of all, this Inn keeps the "old Florida" alive and well. The dining room has a good dinner selection; something for every taste, and... More

All of the staff were over the top in helping my wife celebrate her birthday. Simon Pound was extremely helpful in making sure that my wife got the dessert she loves (Zabaione/Zabaglione). My step-son ordered a surprise bottle of champagne through a "Brianna". The wait staff were attentive but not hanging over us, or pushing us. The specially printed menus... More

This is a very comfortable room overlooking beautiful lawns and swaying palms. The chairs are reminiscent of the plantation lifestyle. The food is perfectly prepared and the selection is varied. The wine list is extensive. I cannot say enough about how wonderful and attentive the service. To me, this place rates a perfect "10".

Made reservation previously, arrived early to 1/2 empty dining room, were told would have to wait, chef could only manage 2 larger parties. Food was OK, as was service. Certainly nothing special!
