Nothing to write home about... average at best. Everything was fair. Service, atmosphere, food, it was just ok. I'll go back if I can't get in anywhere else.

Was not a pleasant experience to say the least. The waitress was afraid to smile she rushed us because she said she had to get to her family for Mother's Day. The restaurant was closing at 5pm, we had reservations for 4pm, we're not told that we would have only one hour to eat. I think we had the bottom... More

Very disappointed today. It was perfect when i was there last year, but today I was disappointed. The food was excellent, but for some reason the acoustics were horrible, and I couldn't even hear my husband talking across the table. VERY noisy.

Felt rushed to leave because they were closing the restaurant at 5pm, soup was bearly warm, we couldn't order dessert because they told us the kitchen was closed. We had a 4 pm reservation and arrived at 4:15, we were told we were late. Just an awful experience from the get go. Will not return.

First time visit, went on Saturday around 5:30 pm. The 2 of us were seated right away. Ordered 2 toss salads, which were mainly a dish of lettuce. I ordered the Queen Prime Rib, done medium, it was very dry. Good size portion, just not that good. My wife ordered the Chicken, Broccoli and Ziti. Nothing special. Won't be back.

We received a gift card to this restaurant so of course I went onto TripAdvisor to check it out as I always do. we happened to go on the Saturday night before Easter Sunday so the restaurant was not crowded. The other reviews were correct in saying that the interior needs updating and the decor is dated. The food was... More

For starters, please disregard the miserable hostess (owner?). Don't allow her to influence your dining experience. Once you get past her, you will have an enjoyable evening. I keep reading reviews and there are MANY complaints about her attitude. When we arrived, she looked at me and said (with attitude) "can I help you". Who says that? Of course you... More

Hostess was rude. One meal in our party of four was terrible. When it was mentioned to the server he said, "sorry about that". We will not go back

A nice place to go for a cozy dinner. Menu is good with nightly specials. Reservations recommended on weekends. Nice bar for pub food if you don't want to sit in the back at a table.

I only live about 12 miles from the Inn, but have never visited before tonight. It is like an old inn in the middle of the woods. I think they specialize in functions as well. There is a cozy bar to enjoy cocktails and the dining room had a large seating area with various sized tables. Our waitress was attentive... More
