I had my daughter baby shower there. Very cozy and intimate. Everyone who attended raved about how good the food was. I would definitely remind for a special event or just dinner

We ate here earlier this year to choose the food for our wedding and everything was absolutely delicious. It is a great place to eat, even if you aren't staying at the inn.

We had dinner here. The light bites menu was very good value. Menu is pretty extensive, Portions are big! Children's menu is good but a bit overpriced. Has a full bar. very handy if staying in the hotel- as we were.

Overall small portions but excellent service. The price depends upon what you want for your dollar. If you want great service and tiny portions then the price does not matter. The setting depends upon the mood of the owners. Inside dining or outside on the...More
