We had friends visit from out of town and put them up at the Inn. Dinner for 5 was excellent, with each course of every meal perfectly prepared and presented. Our dinner orders ran the gamut, from steak to salmon to chicken, and everything was right on the money, including the service. The staff was friendly and attentive without being... More

As we dined with a group from age 20 to 95, everyone totally enjoyed dinner. The food was freshly prepared and not a plate had anything left.

We made a road trip to Ithaca to do some hiking and planned to visit Watkins Glen. After visiting the Chamber in Ithaca we found out that NASCAR was taking place that weekend and chances are most hotels were full. Not only did they help us find one close but made our reservation so we could go about our day!... More

We selected this restaurant based on reviews and were not disappointed. We made reservations for seven people t celebrate my daughter's high school graduation. We were greeted at the door and led to a private dining room that sat eight. The atmosphere, service, and food was excellent. It was also a very good value. Many small restaurants such as this...
