It has been a few years since we were in Sound Beach and ate at the Hartlin Inn. Regardless, the Hartlin Inn has not changed. It still has its group of regulars and a good bar crowd. My favorite entree is the liver with onions...and bacon. It was good in the past and it still is good. I order it medium rare and it is cooked perfectly. It was a large piece of liver. I also ordered the mashed potatoes as a side. We also ordered the beef stroganoff. Unfortunately, the stroganoff was not good. The beef was very tough. The service was good despite two successive groups that had a dozen persons. The prices are reasonable.More

Lived in local area for many year and finally we went. We really missed a great meal for a great price, my husband loved his steak and trust me that’s hard to achieve to his tasting. Quaint place, we will be back

We have lived in the area for years but have never been to this place but found ourselves looking for a late dinner. The Inn was open but not at all busy on a Wednesday evening. The menu was nice and the salad for two...was good. The mains were average diner fare. A rather dry pot roast but excellent red cabbage. My shrimp scampi was just ok. I would like to try the German fare here as it is supposedly good.More
