We had a table of 12 for the monthly Chefs table event. The food is fabulous and themed. This month was Bastille Day. The food in each of the five courses is explained on why it was picked and prepared. Wine is paired with each course by an expert from a wine shop across the street. Great information for foodies...

I found the Worthington Inn while driving past one morning. Without searching for reviews, t was obvious local and I made it a point to have an evening meal with a co-worker while working in the area. And I was a great choice. We arrived a little after 8:00 pm and was told dining closes at 9:00 pm. But we... More

This is a gem of a restaurant. The food is so delicious and freshly prepared. There are unique choices, made with local ingredients, especially in house preparations. I love every meal I have there.

Had dinner on a Thursday night. Restaurant was not crowded, and gave us a quiet corner. The couples enjoyed a leisurely meal and a great opportunity to catch up after a very long separation. Service was attentive without being annoying. And the food was enjoyable, especially the desserts!

This historic inn boasts an excellent restaurant with both fine dining and fine service. We enjoyed an evening starting with calamari and bruschetta both of which were excellent, with a slightly sweet sauce on the calamari. The gnocchi with chicken was prepared well with mushrooms in a delightful sauce. The steak was large and nicely prepared while the halibut was... More

Great up-scale lunch place; would like to try their dinners someday. Daily soup of the day, an especially nice gazpacho, was excellent. And a seasonal grilled asparagus salad with poached egg and grape tomatoes was outstanding. And many tasty sounding other choices.

We made a last minute restaurant choice on a Friday night for dinner and The Worthington Inn was perfect. We had the choice of sitting on the patio, bar or formal dinning area. We choose the formal dinning area and had the room to ourselves. The music was calming with a mix of soft jazz. The food was really great.... More

We visited the Worthington Inn as guests of our friends on the occasion of his confirmation, a very special experience. They had reserved the wine room which is a very cozy, private and elegant room on the lower level of this wonderful Worthington landmark. The food and service was outstanding with a great selection of wines. We all ordered different... More

We went there for a special date night and it was our first time to the Worthington Inn. It's a beautiful old building with an interesting history. There is patio seating out front, several small rooms inside in which you can eat. Our service was good, not exceptional but also not overly attentive which can be annoying. We had the... More

3-6pm great cocktails and pub menu prices. We often have dinner in the bar and enjoy excellent quality locally-sourced food.
