I have NEVER been able to eat grits before, I ate every bit of it. We had breakfast on Saturday morning and Sunday morning and both days were very filling and very tasty. Looking forward to staying at the Mast Farm Inn again.

Be sure to make reservations at Mast Inn's Simplicity. The chef showcases the finest and freshest ingredients of the area. Imaginative without being pretentious.

We loved the food! Dinner Saturday night was delicious and left us savoring each bite! Both breakfasts were unbelievable! We are already planning a return specifically for the food! :)

My friend and I went to the Mast Farm Inn for her birthday! We were so excited because of all that we had heard about the excellent food, atmosphere and service. We were not disappointed. My friend ordered steak and I ordered the pork tenderloin. All of the components of our dishes were purchased from local farms and were made... More

Breakfast comes with staying at the Inn and it is always an adventure, starting with a personalized menu. Dinner is now only on Friday and Saturday nights (the chef also operates Over Yonder.) Wonderful location for a special occasion dinner and a real plus if you are staying over on Friday or Saturday night - you can sample the moonshine.

This was our second Thanksgiving Dinner at the Inn and it did not disappoint! Andy, the chef, outdid himself once again. The food was wonderfully prepared and the service was outstanding. Velva, our server, came through once again with superb service! We will definitely come back for another Thanksgiving and other dinners as well.

I worked for the family at the original store when I was in college at ASU and had fond memories of my time there. Having stayed and dined at Mast Farm Inn several times over the years, I had hoped to start a new tradition with my own family this Thanksgiving. We had a 12:00 seating and our food was... More
